Carrying the spirit of California surf culture, the legendary Doc Ball Trophy Board has found its new crest at Gyppo Ale Mill. Thanks to Bill Hoopes and Uncle Jack Monschke, this treasured slice of Shelter Cove's history, once a beacon for pioneering surfers, now graces our walls. It's not just a board; it's a storyteller, echoing waves of laughter and the first fearless rides on Shelter Cove's tides. We're beyond stoked to have this icon anchor our love for the surf, beer, and community, inviting every visitor to ride the tale of the Lost Coast's oceanic heritage.
