A surfing website picks up, verbatim, Two Trees’ press release about three new lease deals in DUMBO: one for a “locally sourced restaurant from the team behind Colonie in Brooklyn Heights” to be located at 15 Main Street; another for an outlet for bakery One Girl Cookies at 33 Main; and a third for Aegir Boardworks, a “surf and snow” shop that will occupy what “was formerly a barren loading dock” at 99 Water Street. Video after the jump.
Surfline: “There isn’t a more perfect place for a company like ours to flourish than in DUMBO,” said Peter Frolich, Co-owner of Aegir Boardworks, a surf and snow retail and service business. His partner, Shaun Tangen, agrees. “Two Trees has provided us with a fantastic new home here and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this new generation of Brooklyn-based businesses.”
Slated to open in April, Aegir Board Works is a company tailor-made for the Brooklyn waterfront and is poised to become the premier surf/snow shop in New York City.
While we wish the owners of Aegir the best of success, we can’t help but remember the Tradewinds’ hit from the sixties; as for the snow side of the business, we’ll need a return to real winters.
