If you’re still looking for something to do today you should head down to Aliso Beach in Laguna and catch the last day of The Vic skimboarding competition. This photo was captured by Heidi Grabowith. You can find her on instagram as heidigrabowith

Shop Local in Orange County: Featured Business

Thanks to Custom Comfort Mattress for their awesome service today when we were buying a new mattress at their store in Huntington Beach. They recently had their grand opening of this new location at Bella Terra and because we had heard good things we wanted to check it out. We learned that all of their mattresses are made right here in Orange County, and after trying a few it wasn’t hard to figure out why they’ve been in business for over 25 years. Excited to have picked a mattress from their “Retreat” collection.

If you know a great local Orange County business, that deserves to be featured on our page, tag them in the comments below.
