Surfing in Panama: “Choocha Madre”

Finally, I got around to going through all 2,000 photos from a surf trip to Panama. A job that is truly way more fun to do in the moment—wide eyed seeing beautiful, colorful things for the first time ever. Pictures never do anything this awesome the deserved justice.  But as humans, the best we can […]

Fall 2021 on OBX

Every year, the boys from South Jersey descend upon the Outer Banks of North Carolina in an attempt to get tubed, grill meat over open flame, and become wizards all in one shot. It’s often a hefty ask. However, in most years’ past, the gods of liquor and swell bless the Banks with permitting conditions […]

The Land of Lefts

I received a loud voicemail just about a week before boarding an international flight to San Jose, Costa Rica from Atlantic City, New Jersey. It went like this: “Fuuck yeah buddy! Yo it’s Andy yo. Uh, you gotta come to Pavones. Call me back, uh, whenever.” For little more than a week, Mr. Schussler had […]

HANDYCAM THE MOVIE PANAMA

“Many among us have had their minds taken over…” What a video! Start watching! It’s TG, The Scheister, Young JP, and the fiends getting absolutely shacked up in the living room in a high-octane surf flick done with the little handycam. The hoax has continued to thicken and the boys were over it this Winter […]

Springtime on the Outer Banks

Our traveling crew was elated to find somewhere to rest our heads for the evening as we checked into a last-minute Nags Head motel. It was nearly 11PM and we’d just come off some semi-severe traffic during the last leg of our Southbound drive. It was April 8th and town was bustling! Motels and hotels […]

Hurricane Paulette Swell Gallery

September 2020. This is most certainly the future, ladies and gents, a strange one at that. This month’s weather has been iffy due to five (count em) five tropical cyclone systems hanging around. Already, the 2020 Hurricane season has used all storm names on offer and will continue using the Greek alphabet (Alpha’s coming). Even […]

Numbskulls Score Again

Yet another quality edit out of Ryan Simalchik and gang. Before Christmas, the crew drove north to East Coast Canada where Winter was already in full force. NJ surfer Rob Kelly met up with Nova Scotian barrel hound Logan MacLennan in order to find the outer reef slab of slabs. Seemingly perfect A-frames bucked the […]

Big Waves At the Big Apple

The first full week of October (aka OcTUBEr) pumped for four days straight on Long Island, NY. The swell event started on a Wednesday October 9th, 2019 and carried on for the better part of a week-long keg fest. Safe to say Long Island residents were getting copious barrels the entire run of swell. Thursday, […]

Canadian Road Rager

The Canadian Road Rager is not only the hard-on a surfing man receives upon entering Canada; the term is also defined as a “seemingly jolly and greasy road trip through the U.S. Northeast coastline and the Maritime Province of Nova Scotia.” On Friday September 20th, 2019, a group of young men packed a semi-uncomfortable SUV […]

“Elysium” by Quentin Turko

It’s still cold in Jersey, the waves seem to be fading as Summer nears, and that has me missing my favorite East Coast surfing arena–The Outer Banks. Scrolling through IG today, I came across an excerpt from this dude, Quentin Turko’s, new edit. It immediately made me think… I wonder what today looked like down […]
