Steve Larosiliere, Founder and President of Stoked Mentoring for Men’s Journal

By |July 12th, 2020|Editorial|

Social impact stories are extremely important to me and I learned a whole lot talking to Steve Larosiliere, Founder and President of Stoked Mentoring with this interview for Men's Journal. “That was when I started to mentor foster kids—kids from…low income,” he says, before another noticeable hesitation. “I started mentoring Black kids.” Larosiliere went on to found STOKED with Selema Masekela. Stoked connects kids with mentors in action sports to provide ...

Caldarella Ask Own Board Of to Lay Him Off As Economy Crashes

By |March 28th, 2020|Editorial|

I have written about David's Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation since day one and on occasion, done some volunteering. It has always been an honor to work alongside David Caldarella. With the coronavirus pandemic and the economy in a tailspin, Caldarella selflessly asked the board of directors of his own nonprofit to lay him off. He will try to collect unemployment to save his nonprofit through these tough times. I ...

How to Ski and Ride Vail Like a Local

By |January 29th, 2020|Editorial|

Courtesy Vail Resorts "...All right, let’s get the Vail jokes out of the way: ones ribbing the fabulous fur coats seen on Bridge Street, the $18 old-fashioneds, the Wi-Fi connected gondolas and designer oxygen bars to combat altitude sickness. To understate it, there’s nothing chintzy about this Interstate 70 gem with its luxury veneer. Nearly 60 years into the roadside resort town experiment (literally named after a highway ...

Pyzel on Simple Tools for A First Backyard Board for Surfer Mag

By |January 13th, 2020|Editorial|

DIY board-building is one of the most time-honored and creative aspects of surf culture. For a lot of salts, going deep into the garage and emerging with something that may or may not resemble a surfboard is a bucket lister of the surf experience. Imagine doing a stylish mid-faced turn or making an impossibly fast section on a sled with your own signature on the stringer. I spoke with John ...

How a Shark Epidemic Is Changing Surfing and Community on Cape Cod

By |January 8th, 2020|Editorial|

Cody DeGroff This was one of the more important stories I have written in a while, focusing on the Great White Shark problem on Cape Cod. Granted the water off Massachusetts is a bit colder than New Jersey, but I am trying to imagine how we would handle this on Long Beach Island. “My son is about to turn 14. I started him surfing when he was about ...

Magic Mountain Travel Guide for Adventure Sports Network

By |March 16th, 2019|Editorial|

I recently did a quick trip up to New England with a few LBI locals that turned into a fun little travel piece for Adventure Sports Network. Ryan Johnson took some awesome photos and it was a reminder of how wonderful and basic a trip to Vermont can be. "....A mint on your pillow is nice. And a crafted hot drink by a gas fire pit, a high speed gondola, ...

Burton’s Sustainability Goals for TetonGravity.com

By |December 17th, 2018|Editorial|

The earth’s climate has risen two degrees Fahrenheit in the past 100 years. While the effects are varied and dramatic, as one might imagine, it’s not the best thing for long, snow-filled winters. Not the best news for early season runs and those bonus days of spring riding? 97 percent of scientists are in agreement on the phenomenon. Photo: Blotto. Yet, the President of the United States doesn’t believe industry ...

“Who was Andy Irons” for Teton Gravity

By |May 30th, 2018|Editorial|

Full disclosure, I never interviewed A.I. I watched him, read about him, and wrote about his heats, but I never spoke with him. Yet a large part of my career was covering pro surfing at that time and I was fully aware of what he meant to the sport. I was on the beach at the Billabong Pipe Masters the day his son Axel was born on Kauai and Bruce ...

Red Bull Switchboard

By |January 28th, 2018|Editorial, On Air Hosting|

  Since I started snowboarding, it was always very deeply tied to surfing and skating. Even though I've always been merely average at all three, I've has this fascination with the crossover - surfing a big north swell at Holyoke in the morning and running up to the Poconos for the twilight session, hiking a hit in Northern California and then checking the jetty at Humboldt before dark, riding at ...
