langosta lounge booooyyyy



sorry it has been a while. the truth of the matter is i have been in the kitchen for the last 3 weeks opening the connected project langosta lounge, phase 3 in the master plan to give us a heart attack. she is big and pretty as hell. people have been showing up, and the feedback so far has been great. thank you to everyone involved, and all who support us. the bar will be open next week, but for now...

a little piece i finished for this week. it is a test for a bigger one i am doing for ryan tatar superblog "shakas and singlefins" the link is to you right. click it search it, and buy some prints from him. ryan, we are getting you to asbury park this summer, word up. this one is canvas, rice paper, resin and a tongue and groove piece of driftwood. the frame (going on today) is from a broken futon I found in the garbage this summer that has been marinating on my roof for the past 3 months... enjoy...

tombstone tail and lo-ago-go




chris stopped by last night with my 6'5" diamond-tail creeper. i stepped on her ass this morning and she slowed down to a crawl in the west wind. he kept her wide, i banged in a 8 inch rainbow and let me tell you we are set. fuck me.

some thoughts of logo work for chris and his shapes. he is a talented shaper out of asbury, his link will be on the right, hit him up if you want any customs, or are looking for a used shape. lightly salted will be doing a movie/music and used board garage sale this spring. hit me up if you want some more information.

ASBURY PARK NEW JERSEY


8.1.08

START HERE... AND GO FROM THERE


“My whole life is escape. My whole life is this wave. I drop into em, set the whole thing up, pull up the bottom turn, pull up into it and shoot for my life, going for broke, man …and behind me all the shit goes over my back - the screaming parents, teachers, police, priests, politicians, knee boarders, windsurfers. They’re all going over the falls head –first into the fucking reef and I’m shooting for my life and when it starts to close out I pull out through the bottom or out the back…and I pick up another one and do the same goddamn thing !”
