About K5: Once there was a small green caterpillar named K-5 Boardshop inching his was through the beaches of Encinitas, California. In 1987 K-5 the caterpillar bloomed into a sick boardshop and began hooking up the surf, skate, snow community of San Diego with the latest shred equipment around, and has been ever since. The first K-5 Boardshop located in Encinitas is 5 kilometers to the beach; thus the name K-5. Brothers Jergen and Tom Schulz founded the shops, and continue to run and keep the K-5 Boardshops true to their roots; stocked with …Lost Surfboards and …Lost Surfskates. K-5 has three retail locations in San Diego: Oceanside, Encinitas, and Poway. If these retail locations aren’t close to your neighborhood, check out their huge selection of products in their online store K5 ONLINE STORE
Every year K-5 holds their K-5 Pro/Am Surf Klassic, and this years event is being held Saturday May, 28 at D Street in Encinitas, Ca. This is a super fun contest every year, and we’re sending some of our …Lost Team riders Darrell Goodrum and Brandon Ragenovich to hold it down and kill it for the cause. “The good thing about doing the contest with K-5 is if any of our rowdy team riders get out of line, Jergen will take care of them with ‘the claw.” (Matt Biolos)
