Corona del Mar High School juniors Andrew Boukather and Cole Friedman used to shop at Jack's Surfboards in Corona del Mar Plaza.
But this summer, the friends and business partners are selling a line of shirts from their newly launched Spruce Clothing company at their favorite local shop.
"Last year, we were dreaming about doing this," Andrew said. "It's really sweet. It's so cool."
Andrew of Big Canyon and Cole of Balboa Island have been friends since pre-kindergarten and first talked about creating a surf/skate clothing line last year.
Both are interested in art, from Southern California street art to 1950s poster art.
Cole had designed and produced a clothing line when he was in fourth grade — although he didn't follow through after his initial production, he said.
"If you want to do it, let's do it legit," Andrew said that Cole told him last summer.
Cole, a graphic artist who has won design awards and had two summer internships at surf/skate labels, began working on designs. Andrew took over the business side of things, including launching a website and social media campaign.
