Surf Fest IV

Sid “The Package” Abruzzi’s Waterbrothers has been supporting skating and surfing since 1971, and for the past four years he’s thrown an annual shindig in Newport, RI of skate and surf history called the Surf Fest, and Big Tim put together a ramp for this year’s Fest and invited TA to come out and ride. Acres of skateboards and surf boards dating back decades littered the lawn and lined the walls, supplemented by Skatopia’s Brewce Martin, who brought a sizeable chunk of his quiver. Surf legend Peter Townend made an appearance. Sunny skies prevailed, killer tunes set the mood, East Coast legends mingled, food and beverages were on hand, and ripping went down until the sun set. Thanks for the good time Package, and for all you do. –Wez Lundry

Apparently some surfboards came with cheater engines for lazy surfers?

Whichever environmentally aware recycling advocate designed this dummy, they obviously had Sid in mind.

Two covers heating it up this month: Raven Tershy nose grabbing a back tail way over vert at FDR and Figgy getting crooked down a 24-stair monster. Tons more Stay Flared tour highlights inside, 20 pages if you're counting. Other travel tales include an epic Dubai mission for We Are Blood and the Asphalt Yacht Club voyages to Hawaii. Tom K and Frank Shaw both get the Heads treatment and music-wise we got interviews with Morrissey and Slayer, so that's worth the admission price alone.
