We’re beyond excited to once again be a sponsor of The Asbury Park Music Festival.

The festival, which celebrates all thing surf music and surf culture, was one of our favorite events of last summer. It was a wondrous, all day fest that perfectly scored the sweaty summer day that was highlighted by the salty sea are that wafted around the Asbury Park beachfront.

It will see the return of: The Coffin Daggers, The Sharkskins, Blue Wave Theory, The Brigantines, Black Flamingos and Los Pocos Locos.

The event will be MC-ed by Unsteady Freddie, a staple in the Northeast surf music scene.
