While the waves were not epic this weekend there wasn’t a shortage of stoke to go around in the local surf scene.  Friday in Manasquan, NJ offered an excellent evening of surf entertainment at the Algonquin Theater.  Sponsors included Starbucks and Surf Taco and both were on hand feeding and watering the masses free of charge.   

The evening opened with a blistering set of music from Quincy Mumford.  His band sounded excellent and was well received from everyone in attendance. 

Jay Alders had set up residence in the lobby and he and his crew mingled while he exhibited his surf art.  In support of the evening, he and Scott Imbre, co-owner of Original Skateboards, raffled off a long board skate board emblazoned with Jay’s art.

...and the Lucky Winner is?

 After Quincy Mumford’s set the evening transitioned to a screening of the Original Skateboards film Fire on the Mountain.  The film truly captures the spirit of adventure that is at the heart of any great road trip.  The obvious bond shared by all parties involved in the high stakes mission to skate down White Face Mountain made the movie.  It also includes a killer soundtrack and some excellent cinematography.  The crowd went nuts when the closing credits rolled.


One of the other free drawings had the ecstatic winner walk away with two VIP tickets to the Matt Costa show that will take place at the Algonquin after the Beach Bash in Manasquan on September 18th.  This promises to be a cool day as it takes place in conjunction with the Belmar Pro.  Mark your calendars.

Finally, this free event was capped off with a showing of Taylor Steele’s Castles in the SkyNeedless to say everyone in attendance left feeling great and waiting for that next chance to get some good waves.
