A Pioneering Beachside Family Invites Us In

Written by Katie Hintz-Zambrano

If waking up and inhaling beach air is the stuff of your dreams, then you might just say Johanna St. Clair is living the fantasy life. The mother of 9-year-old Nina is the co-founder of the pioneering S.F. brand Mollusk Surf Shop, a brick and mortar store on the West Coast that also creates an in-house collection of surfboards and wares for men, women, and kids. Here, the creative mama (who also counts herself an artist) invites us into her home, which is just a short walk from the Pacific in S.F.’s buzzing Ocean Beach ‘hood, and talks motherhood, work, and cutting the clutter (or at least trying to).

    The picture at the top of the page is the only one where we can see Johanna completely barefoot. She does look like she has nice feet. She has a nice simple barefoot style.
