- Downtown Perspective
In my first foray into the world of broadcasting my Around Downtown interview series I had the pleasure of sitting down with a friend from high school to catch up with her on life after her stint at the Sundance Film Festival and her return to Downtown SLO to work in her family business, Central Coast Surfboards. In the following podcast you will learn a bit about her take on the business and Downtown economy. The following article is also featured in the March edition of SLO Journal Plus magazine and the audio edition is our extended conversation. If you are in the market for some surf threads or a new board, CCS has you covered. Read more here.
