August 2nd, 2011 by Casey Butler

Surfers of the Pacific may know a good burrito, but their Atlantic counterparts know that crab cakes and beer are tough to top in terms of summer eats. Jersey surfers, in particular, also tend to appreciate the blurry distinction between life on a barrier island and that on the “mainland,” the beauty of surfing in the snow, and sharing stories with friends–both old and new. On Friday, July 22nd, surfers from up and down the New Jersey coast gathered at Tuckerton Seaport to gorge on all of the above at Black Sails Publications and Intercourse Brewery’s Singlefins, Boardwalks, & Storytalks II.

Long Beach Surfer Daniel Bobis Missing in Sumatra

July 25th, 2011 by John Zanussi

A surfer, high school math teacher, and coach of the Long Beach HS surf team has gone missing in Indonesia Sunday morning. While on a surf trip in Sumatra, Daniel Bobis, 32, was surfing with a friend when he took off on a wave and never paddled back out. Moments later his board washed up on the shore with no sign of Daniel. This is crazy sad and my condolences go out to Daniel’s family as they continue to search for Daniel. More »
