3/3/15: The grand opening party at the new Catalyst in San Clemente went down last Thursday. We had a few kegs, some cheap wine and a lot of good people to enjoy them with. Located at the “Triangle”, the new shop boasts a “Resinworks” theme complete with resinated floors, resin swirl wall panels and even a resin bucket chandelier. The party also featured …Lost surfboards by the Lucky Bastards, an indoor glassing demo by E-tech, new Mason Ho clips and a live performance by Tunnel Vision. We also gave out a ton of free …lost clothing to the kids. Check out the photos and make sure to check out the shop. Catalyst San Clemente, Raised on Resin since 87′.
The new store is located in what San Clemente locals call “The Triangle”. Basically there are bars and parties all the time. Metal Jimmy stamp of approval.
