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 ...

First off, if you have any interest at all in fishing, check out Angler's Journal. It's an amazing magazine with gorgeous photography and really thoughtful stories. Green Outdoors It's actually crazy that I should pen a story for such a publication, or any fishing magazine for that matter.

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 ...

Jamaican Surf Team Scores Swell and Support

By |April 8th, 2021|Categories: Editorial|Tags: , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Jamaican Surf Team Scores Swell and Support

Jamaica is very much on my bucket list. I have long heard about Jamnesia, the idyllic rootsy and charmingly ramshackle beach enclave that every wander-curious surfer in the hemisphere has read about. It’s the surf camp/music venue/homestead/skate spot established many years ago by the patriarch of Jamaican surfing, Billy Wilmot, aka, Billy Mystic, frontman of the internationally acclaimed reggae group, the Mystic Revealers.

The Camel Finds Water for Power & Motoryacht

By |March 25th, 2021|Categories: Commercial Work|Comments Off on The Camel Finds Water for Power & Motoryacht

  “There’s something just so satisfying about bobbing around in the ocean on a boat you’ve resurrected from the ground up, knowing every nook and cranny as it hurls you forward on epic little adventures. It’s knowing the vessel’s story from beginning to end,” says Gordon. “Boats are funny that way; superstitions and folklore add to the depth of the experience.” This is a piece I did last year for ...
