Surf Fest IV in Newport, RI

The Water Brothers Surf Fest in Newport, RI was never a small, but Sid and Danielle Abruzzi raised the bar for this fourth version of the event.

The annual event included a half pipe and several hundred vintage surf boards all contained within Fort Adams, the same venue which houses the Folk and Jazz Festivals. Neil of Tora surfboards put on a shaping demonstration and awards were given to the owners of the best boards. Special guests included Tony Alva, Peter Townend, and Mike Tabeling.

Here are some pictures from the event.  Well done Sid!  We’re all looking forward to doing it again next year.

Reason to love New England #147

 

Don’t ask me what the other 146 reasons are.  They constantly change… but there are too many to list.

Today’s reason is that while most people were just getting up and starting to shovel their cars out after Hercules dumped snow on us, a few souls braved the negative wind chills to find solitary surf.  Snow covered cars, unplowed roads, single digit temps, 20mph winds, frozen salt water covering the rocks – it didn’t matter.  The call to surf is strong.

Here’s to winter surfing!

2014 First Light

Every January 1st, I make an image with the first light of the new year.  This is year number 7, and at 20degrees, one of the coldest.

Thanks to Greg for handling the cold like a champ.

What a great way to start the year!

Best Wishes to everyone in 2014.  Jason
