Gio & Dante Graziose

We first met Gio and Dante in September of 2011. They would stop by the shop just to chat and hang out. At the time, we were still a team of three and the company was growing rapidly every day. The twins were quick to ask if they could help in any way and we were quick to take them up on their offer. The first day we had them sweep the floors and fold shirts. Through our conversations with them, we knew they were extremely knowledgeable about our industry and that they wanted to learn more, so we asked them if they would be interested in an official internship. They accepted and the “twinterns” were born.

Coming all the way from across the Golden Gate, these Mill Valley locals will be put on full-time assisting Kazu in the day-to-day operations in the Valencia shop. Their work ethic, attention to detail, and dedication to excellence is a rarity and we are very fortunate to have them on the team. When they’re not crushing it in the store, you will most likely find Gio and Dante surfing, skating, or traveling. Look forward to getting to know these two better as you will see them in the shop a lot more!
