Providence College Women’s Hockey

I was fortunate to be able to spend the second half of the 2016-2017 season with the Providence College Women’s Hockey program.  From the locker room, to the weight room, to the practice ice, and finally  during game time, I learned much from them about friendship and camaraderie among teammates. With small crowds and little chance of a pro career, these women are a great example of  players working hard for love of the game.   The team did an amazing job this year and is poised for even more success next year.

I’m pulling together all of the files for a project later on but here is a first look at some of the images.

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!
