From Globetrotting Tom!
Was in Jersey City overnight and finally put a new location on the
Matnerd-Stoke-World-Tour map. Up at 4 a.m., rolled up the mat and after a 2 hour subway commute arrived at Rockaway Beach, just as the sun came up.
Roaring jets departing JFK overhead and housing complexes behind the boardwalk gave a unique backdrop for the event. A distinctly mellow vibe on the beach and in the unlimited zero-elimination heat together with quite a few shapely waves, made it a very memorable stop.
The subway ride back to Mannhattan among the stoked New York crowd that showed up in all shapes, colors, sizes and styles was a fitting finale for the morning.
Next tour stop is LAX in Sept!
