LBI Happenings

There are some cool events happening this week on LBI.

Tomorrow there is a free No Discipline concert at Sunset Park in Harvey Cedars from 7-9 PM and in Surf City there is an Art Gallary Open House from 6-8 PM. I will be stopping by Ann Coen's Photography and then heading up to the concert.

On July 31st from 6-10 PM there is the "Night of Pine" Fundraiser to help
reimburse the artists who lost irreplaceable works of art, hand made clothing, and jewelry. Refreshments, food,
silent art auction, raffle and a viewing of "Hanging Five"- a documentary on
Wolfgang Bloch, Andy Davis, Julie Goldstein, Alex Knost, and Tyler Warren.

Pine was only around for 8 months before it was lost to an unsuspected fire. It was a great Surf Shop and Gallery started by our friends Julie Goldstein, Mark Tesi, and the Farias Family.

We wish everyone the best of luck. The weather should be great and it will be good times with good people.

Jack Johnson

This one is also a little overdue. July 13th Jack Johnson played the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. The concert was awesome. T-Storms rocked us all day long, including the drive up to the show. As luck would have it the storms subsided right as we pulled into the parking lot. We met up with our friends and tailgated in the parking lot.

Every song Jack played was great and there was a great mix from the older albums and from To The Sea. If you can, definitely get some tickets to the next show.

Up North

This post is long overdue. July has been a crazy month and this summer is going strong. At the start of July we were in Northern Michigan to visit friends and family and another chance to see the Third Coast. The lake is amazing and the surfers that ride the winter waves never cease to amaze me, even coming from Jersey. I can't imagine getting out of the water due to ice build up. The areas streets, beaches, and waters are full of people that love to play outside.
We saw some amazing sunsets, I was a little late on this shot and just missed the sun as it slipped beneath the horizon. If you get a chance to go, check out Legs Inn in Cross Village, its a great bar with good music and a beautiful view.

The beaches are great for morning walks and jogs, as well as just some quiet time feeling the sand between our toes.

Overall, it was a great time visiting friends and family.

Mike Jacobs Surfboard

Here's my new Mike Jacobs 5'4" "JWOWW" model. Shaping runs in the Jacob's blood starting with the legendary Hap Jacobs, followed by Kent Jacobs and now Mike Jacobs. These summer sticks are so much fun that I have a 5'5" on Oahu for the town spots from Kewalos to Aina Haina. It's perfect for summer southerly swells and makes surfing even more fun while you're in the sun. I rode it as a thruster at Old Airports in Kona on 1 foot junk. I can't wait to surf it as a quad tomorrow when we get this new SW swell.
