John John Florence Set To Premiere View from A Blue Moon at Surfer the Bar

It doesn't take more than a quick show of hands from surf fans the world over to know that the North Shore's own John John Florence is one of the greatest talents the sport has ever seen. Whether he's on the cover of the latest issue of SURFER Magazine or stomping the most technical of airs on the World Tour, John John is taking the surf world by storm. And in today's ever-hungry world of media, that kind of recognition means that you have to keep the people satiated. To feed his fans, John John's been busily working on his latest film, View from A Blue Moon, for quite some time.


My Amazing Week at The Gerry Lopez Surf/SUP/Yoga Retreat at Turtle Bay

Hey– It’s my birthday!

Well, I didn’t plan on this post coming on out on my birthday, but it is happening that way and now I can’t imagine a more appropriate time. Because if I’ve ever felt truly spoiled, it was on the retreat I get to tell you about today.

Last week I was invited to spend four nights at Turtle Bay as part of a small group for the Gerry Lopez Surf/SUP/Yoga retreat. Though the week is now over, my heart will be full for a long time. Most of you know, I’ve always believed in taking mini-getaways. Getting away to breathe and reflect…to actually miss our kids and our spouses and our laundry (wait, no not the laundry!) is truly valuable.

So I hope this post inspires you to plan your own getaway — big or small.
