Escape to LBI in Angler’s Journal Magazine

Today, my feature on LBI is front and center on The Anglers Journal website. It was also in the Winter 23 print issue with photos by Jessica Haydahl Richardson If you aren't aware of this magazine, it's a radically departure from other fishing mags. I'm always honored that they give me assignments considering I am a relative newcomer to angling. This feature takes a look at our home, as the way ...

About 13 years ago, I was hanging out with Bryan Kienlen and he said, "Hey bud, I should tattoo you." I admittedly waited a bit as he got dialed in but then he put the iconic Bouncing Souls anchor heart on my calf, a piece I will always love for its association with New Jersey punk, independence and the friends we have in common.

We are fast approaching the peak of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. I wrote this piece for Surfline as something of a primer but then we had Hurricane Henri and sadly the mess of Hurricane Ida. Check out Backyard Parties for Surfline. We love to run around and chase swells. But for this one, my idea was to record stories off East Coasters who stayed home and scored. So I did ...

Green Outdoors It's actually crazy that I should pen a story for such a publication, or any fishing magazine for that matter.

Right Coast Tattoo Move for the Sand Paper

By |July 15th, 2021|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , |Comments Off on Right Coast Tattoo Move for the Sand Paper

For the first time in 22 years, Long Beach Island does not have a tattoo shop. The town of Barnegat, however, just got a new shop with a solid legacy. Dan Binai opened Right Coast Tattoo in Ship Bottom 14 years ago. Set back from the Boulevard in one of the cut-outs, the shop flourished right along with the industry that saw massive growth from the mid-2000s. The shop had ...
