W

est Palm Beach is expected to have a new up and coming hotspot later this year. Warehouse District, just a bike ride away from City Place, is where old warehouses have been given a new purpose. After the location received a well-needed renovation, while keeping their authentic features, the 82,000 square foot space is a “cool, hip, kind of neighborhood” where community members can go to relax, grab a beer or cup of coffee, and enjoy the atmosphere. Featured spots on the strip include Grandview Hall, a court where varying food vendors, chosen carefully by the craft and quality of goods offered, have delicious food items for you to choose from. Vendors include The Corner, serving Detroit-style pizza, Créme, with their Taiwanese inspired ice cream, Grace’s Fine Foods, that serve homemade sausages and charcuterie, and many other vendors to choose from. With spots like Steamhorse, Grandview Hall, and Studio Etc. expected to be up and running by late October, other locations are set to open in the months to follow. Current stores include the Rabbit Coffee shop, Celis food market, Grain and Barrel Spirits, and Kofski Antiques.

I

f you’re a beach lover, you’ve most likely heard of the race to save our ocean’s coral reefs. Critical for the survival of many marine species, reefs are often damaged by vessel groundings and anchoring, or are dying due to warm water temperatures, which leads to coral bleaching. Luckily, No Shoes Reefs, a joint venture of ENGEL Coolers and No Shoes Nation here in South Florida, is partnering with Andrew “Red” Harris Foundation to help protect these ecosystems. Together, they have deployed 134 four-ton artificial reef modules that mimic natural reefs and 1,000 tons of boulders just offshore of the Jupiter Inlet. This is the largest project of its kind by a private foundation on Florida’s east coast. This $500,000 project has already dropped boulders on August 2nd and 5th, followed by artificial reefs on August 9th, 11th, and 13th. “Anyone who lives in South Florida enjoys our magnificent waterways,” said Paul Kabalin, CEO of ENGEL Coolers. “Because ENGEL calls South Florida our home, we feel passionate about protecting our coral reefs, and creating new reefs, which are vital for so many marine species and for the protection of our shores.”

ccording to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric

Administration, approximately 1.4 billion pounds of trash enters the ocean per year. Guess how it leaves. It floats to our beaches or ends up in the bellies of our favorite reptiles, mammals and fish. Although it may seem like a single person’s efforts will never make a difference, wakey wakey because it totally does. The main take-away from this is that small switches make a great impact when everyone is involved. So, invite your friends to join the “going green” party and live the high life of being Earth’s best friend. Read on, my conservation compadres, because we’re going to be the change we wish to see in the sea.

WHAT CAN WE DO? SCREEN YOUR SUNSCREEN Your dip in the ocean has lasting negative effects if you’re not using the right sunscreen. According to the Pacific Whale Foundation, whose mission is to protect our oceans through science and advocacy, researchers have discovered that some chemicals in sunscreen can awaken coral viruses, causing the coral to bleach and die. Bad news. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) states that coral reefs are some of the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on Earth. They support more species per unit than any other marine environment, including about 4,000 species of fish, 800 species of hard corals, and hundreds of other species. Many drugs are now being developed from coral reef animals and plants as possible cures for cancer, arthritis, human bacterial infections, viruses and other diseases. They are not only among the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the world, but they are also very fragile. When some pollutants enter the water, nutrient levels can increase, which promotes the rapid growth of algae and other organisms that can smother corals. If we can make a simple switch with our sunscreens to avoid adding to this pollution problem, let’s do it. Solution: Make the easy switch to reefsafe sunscreen. You can use physical, or mineral, sunscreens that physically block UV rays but don’t contain coral reef-harming chemicals. Definitely avoid Oxybenzone, as this ingredient is a known endocrine disrupter and is proved to damage coral reefs. However, make sure it does include zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. The best and most eco-friendly option is to don sun-protective clothing and a hat so you can avoid sunscreen all together.

JOIN BEACH CLEANUPS The beach is the best part of Florida, so we should focus on keeping it clean. Not only are there local, event-specific beach cleanups (i.e. July 5 in several cities), but the Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC) in Juno Beach, FL hosts monthly beach cleanups where they focus on the dirty details. “We started weighing the trash intentionally at the end of each cleanup and focused on sorting the trash into categories,” said Hannah Deadman, public relation and communications coordinator at the LMC. “We were really able to see what trash there is, and how much of each type, so we can focus on how to stop that trash from ending up in our oceans.” For the reader, this means to just be smart about what you’re leaving behind. Whether you’re a Girl Scout or not, you must abide by the leave-the-place-cleaner-than-you-found-it decree. If you brought it out, bring it back in. There are sea turtles that are counting on it. “Doing the sorting and finding the source of plastic over time, to see what is increasing, decreasing and where it’s coming from,” said Demi Fox, LMC conservation coordinator, “will help to find a solution for the end goal.” The LMC goes even the nautical mile further and hosts underwater beach cleanups. Their conservation team is able to clean under the

pier and remove items such as fishing line, sunglasses, random debris and more. Since they began this initiative a few years ago, they’ve removed more than 8,000 pounds of debris just from the Juno Beach Pier. Solution: Stop littering, you filthy animals. If it didn’t come out of the ocean, it doesn’t need to go in the ocean. Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful, the local non-profit affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, makes it easy for you to find a beach cleanup near you. Just visit www. keeppbcbeautiful.org/monthly.htm, get a group of friends together, and hit the beach. They invite you to “clean it up, fix it up, keep it up” so as to inspire generations of environmental stewards for years to come.

IF IT DIDN’T COME OUT OF THE OCEAN, IT DOESN’T NEED TO GO IN THE OCEAN.

SAY NO TO TOXIC PLASTIC POLLUTION

local authorities to take action to phase out single-use plastic bags.

According to a World Economic Forum study, there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans by 2050. SAY WHAT?

“We’ve been encouraging Palm Beach County municipalities to ask the state legislature to do away with the ban (the one prohibiting local governments from banning plastic bags) and support the bill that Surfrider has been working so hard to get passed,” Warnke said.

According to the Surfrider Foundation, plastics comprise up to 90 percent of floating marine debris, and up to 80 percent of the plastic in our oceans comes from land-based sources.

In addition to fighting against the bill, Surfrider is also promoting their Rise Above Plastics campaign and encouraging local restaurants to qualify as ocean friendly restaurants. The qualifications are easy to do, i.e. using green to-go products, but make a large impact when more restaurants get involved.

Coral Gables became the first city in Florida to ban single-use plastic bags, which took place a mere six months ago. However, the state may or may not be challenging this in court.

“This initiative is based on the Surfrider program in Maui. All we have to do is plug in our local restaurants,” Warnke said. “The restaurants can list on their menu that they’re an ocean friendly restaurant, which will help to educate the public.”

“The bill will be reintroduced in January and, as a pilot program, will make it allowable for municipalities with less than 100,000 people to regulate single-use plastic bags and report to the legislature on the results,” Warnke said. “In a few years, the legislature would have the necessary data to end the ban.”

You can also reeducate yourself on the three R’s: reduce, reuse, recycle. It’s a fabulous mantra, but the most important factor of the trifecta is the “reduce.” According to a 2013 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study, Americans generate roughly 4.4 pounds of waste per day.

When California enacted a state-wide plastic bag ban in 2015, Florida had already taken the opposite stance in 2008 and passed a bill prohibiting local governments from banning plastic bags. But, local municipalities are still working to ban plastic bags.

The Ban the Bag initiative is so important because it greatly affects loggerhead sea turtles. These sea turtles are a really good, and important, indicator species that signifies what is happening as far as overall marine pollution impact.

Palm Beach County recently joined the “Ban the Bag” efforts by supporting plastic bag bans in stores and restaurants. The campaign is designed to help citizens, shopkeepers and

“They eat the bags because they look like jellyfish, and end up not being able to breathe and die,” Warnke said.

“Reducing is always the first goal. Then you reuse and recycle. Recycling still adds to the issue, so it’s best to step back and first reduce,” Deadman said. “People shouldn’t be a 100 percent zero waste, it’s just important to take the small steps toward a more sustainable life. If you touch a piece of plastic for less than 30 minutes, there are solutions to that.” The goal is to just be conscious, caring and considerate of animals who don’t speak our language.

“Only about 4 percent of single-use plastic bags are recycled,” said Tom Warnke, the stakeholder liaison for the Surfrider Foundation Palm Beach County chapter. The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. Warnke founded the Palm Beach County chapter 20 years ago, and it was the Foundation’s first Florida chapter.

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT


Solution: Basically, cut down on your plastic usage. If you don’t have a Hydro Flask or similar reusable water bottle, invest in one. To become part of the Ban the Bag movement, visit florida.surfrider.org where you can not only engage your shopkeeper to stop using plastic bags, but also involve your city in the fight against plastic pollution. If you have an idea for a restaurant that might be on board to be an ocean friendly restaurant, email Anna from Surfrider at annapcherubin@gmail.com for details. Small changes equal a big impact.

“THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE PLACE FOR YOUR BUTTS IS IN A GARBAGE RECEPTACLE. NO IF’S, AND’S OR BUTTS ABOUT IT.”

NO BUTTS ABOUT IT According to Ocean Conservancy, a non-profit environmental advocacy group that helps protect ocean wildlife, cigarette butts are one of the top 5 deadliest ocean trash. Other items on the list include fishing gear, plastic bags and utensils, balloons and bottle caps. “A lot of people don’t realize that cigarette butts aren’t biodegradable,” Fox said. “The filter is in the butts, and the filter is made out of plastic, which only degrades and breaks into small particles over time, getting into our oceans.” The LMC received a Cigarette Litter Prevention Program Grant from Keep America Beautiful, a national non-profit that envisions a country in which every community is a clean, green and beautiful place to live, to combat cigarette litter on more than 50 fishing piers by installing cigarette receptacles. The Cigarette Litter Prevention Program is the nation’s largest program aimed at reducing cigarette litter. Communities that implemented the Cigarette Litter Prevention Program in 2016 saw an average of 60 percent reduction in cigarette litter. According to a Keep America Beautiful landmark study on litter and littering behavior, tobacco products, consisting mainly of cigarette butts, are the most littered item in America, representing nearly 38 percent of all items littered. Solution: If you’re not going to quit smoking (which you should), please, please, please consider your butts as pollution. Throwing them out your car window, burying them in sand at the beach, or tossing them in a plantar on the side of the street all counts as littering. The only acceptable place for your butts is in a garbage receptacle. No if’s, and’s or butts about it. TH EATLANTICCU R R E NT.COM

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PARTY After the LMC team documented hundreds of deflated balloons on local beaches and treated many turtles that had ingested marine debris, they developed and began implementing their Balloon Ban conservation project in 2016. Since then, they have partnered with communities in four Florida counties covering 130 miles of coastline. As of September 1, 2017, LMC and Palm Beach Country’s partnership prohibits the use of balloons at 11 county-operated beachfront parks, including those in Jupiter, Gulfstream, Juno Beach, Ocean Ridge, Riviera Beach and Boca Raton. The deflated balloons resemble jellyfish, which is a common food for the sea turtles, making it attractive for the sea turtles to eat. The LMC hopes to reduce marine debris, and save turtles’ lives by banning the use of balloons in town beaches, parks, hotels, fishing charters, etc. “Partnerships and collaboration with outside groups is so critical for conservation,” Fox said. “It’s everyone’s responsibility to protect our environment so we can keep our species.” Solution: Yes, balloons are fun and a great addition to any party, so just reserve balloon use to indoors. Omit them from your beach or park parties, and opt for more ocean-friendly decorations. Piñatas are super fun and there is never any candy left behind, and chalk is also a great idea for decorating the walkway leading up to a party.

L

ong story short, small steps do make a great impact. The idea of ocean conservation can be an “out of sight, out of mind” issue for a lot of people when you’re not directly faced with boating through a trash island, or seeing a sea turtle ingest a balloon and have to go to the hospital. Being aware is half the battle, so just start there. “If you’re walking the beach and see trash, pick it up. Or even just join a beach cleanup near you,” Deadman said. “Just be mindful, clean up after yourself, and encourage others to do the same.” Maybe if we all take proactive measures to reduce waste, we will be able to reduce the impending 2050 waste to marine life timeline, and enjoy the beaches and marine life that we love so much.

We appreciate you, the reader, in doing your part along with helping to spread the word of this cause.

1. 70 percent of the oxygen we breathe is produced by marine plants. 2. 36 percent of oil entering the ocean is from land run-off via drains and rivers. 3. Plastic is the number one source of pollution in the ocean. 4. It takes plastic an average of 450 years to degrade in water. 5. Each year, pollution kills more than one million seabirds, 300,000 dolphins and porpoises, and 100,000 sea mammals. 6. In the Pacific Ocean, there is an island of garbage twice the size of Texas, making it the largest oceanic garbage site in the entire world. There, the number of floating plastic pieces outnumber total marine life six to one. 7. Oil is the fastest source of deterioration to the ocean - far more than trash and waste - because it essentially changes the entire ecosystem of the affected area. 8. Animals at the top of the food chain have contamination levels of millions times higher than the water in which they live as a result of feeding on the smaller animals that absorb the chemicals as part of their food. 9. Chemicals found in polluted water can contaminate water supplies and food chains, creating hormonal imbalances, reproductive problems, nervous system and kidney damage to humans. 10. Up until the 1970’s, chemicals and garbage, including pesticides and radioactive waste, were deliberately dumped into our oceans, assuming they would dissolve to safe levels.

S

ince Jamie Foy departed from his home in Deerfield Beach, he’s racked up a host of sponsors and continued making a name for himself in the industry. Most notable was his jaw dropping appearance on Thrasher Magazine’s King of The Road, which led him to pro status with the Deathwish team. Recently, we caught up with Jamie to see what’s new.

What was the hype like after King of The Road started airing?

People seemed to love it because it’s just some of the craziest things you have to do on the road. Nothing better than skating and hijinks!

What was it like cruising with the Deathwish team?

It’s the shit! All just good homies making great times happen.

Who was the craziest guy on King of the Road?

There was a good amount of time where we would run into the Enjoi team on the road and everytime we did Jackson Pilz amazed me. He’s a magician.

What was your favorite challenge?

Definitely the Muska day challenge. One of my favorite skaters and lots of grinding!

What went through your head when you first got pro status with the Deathwish team?

Just straight fireworks haha. I didn’t really think of anything other than ‘is this real?’

When you got your signature pro deck, what came next? Did you sleep with it under your pillow?

Nahh haha, it kinda felt surreal so that board went in the closet for now.

What was it like growing up skating in South Florida?

Hot and sweaty, but also I was always skating around good homies so it was always fun. >>

SPORTS

With all the obstacles of becoming a pro out of this area, were there times you thought you may not make it pro?

There was never really a time that I was just straight striving to be pro so not really. I’ve always just wanted to skate and see where it took me.

It’s pretty common for skaters to head out West to make it in the industry. What do you think it will take for more South Florida skaters to make it pro without having to leave the area?

Just leave the area. I love Florida with all my heart but a lot of people get stuck there sadly. So you either need to move out to the industry or wish one day the industry will move to Florida.

What’s your favorite skate spot back home? RIP CityBank

What have been your most memorable rail tricks? 26

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

I’d say the frontside 5-0 and frontside nosegrind I did on the sunset 20 rail in my Welcome to Deathwish part.

and never have time to chill. Been trying to go back to just hang out for a while now.

Other than King Of The Road, what projects have you been working on recently?

Publix, Zaxbys, and Flanigans.

I’ve been working on a video with Ty Evans and some homies for about a year now and it’ll be coming out soon. And also working on a Deathwish video that’ll be up on Thrasher (Magazine) later this year.

Who was your biggest skate influence growing up?

When I was super young, it was just all the older kids at the park because I never really paid attention to videos, but once I did it was people like Muska, Jamie Thomas, and Jeremy Wray.

How often do you make it back home to Deerfield?

Sadly, not too often. Since all I do is skate, I always find myself getting into the next thing

Favorite food spots back home? Any specific goals for the near future? Make it out of the country more!

Alex Sorgente, Zion Wright and yourself have all been making big moves lately. Who do you think is the next skater to bust onto the scene from South Florida?

Honestly that’s pretty hard for me to call out. There’s a lot of skaters making the move to come out to California now. And they’re all so good. Shit, where I live right now in Long Beach I live with 6 homies all from Florida and they kill it, so I’d say just watch out for the Floridians! @jamie_foy

SURFBOARDS

SHAPING A CAREER OF PASSION AND STOKE BY SAVANNAH SHEEHAN

Mass production, large retailers, and online shopping leave the consumer with instant gratification but little background knowledge on the product. Imagine being in-the-know of the entire process of creating something you want and customizing it to your every whim. Grass-roots operations do still exist and Mike Pechonis at Bird Surfboards will be one of the first to attest. Deerfield Beach, Florida has been a hub for surfing and surf culture for generations. Having been raised in Deerfield, Mike Pechonis, owner and founder of Bird Surfboards, immersed himself in the surfing community at a young age. At the age of 15, when his first surfboard broke, Mike stripped it down, bought some fabric and boat resin and has been making his own surf boards ever since. A day in the life of Mike Pechonis consists of physical labor and shear enthusiasm. When I arrived at Bird – officially incorporated in 1988 – Mike made no haste in exploring the grounds of operation, giving me the grand tour. Mike, ahead of me in tow, guided me into the room where the boards are shaped – the first step. We then went into a room that has a stand to hold surfboards and low lights on the walls – at about waist height, and other various tools. Boards start off as “blanks,” or simply blocks of foam. Here, Mike explains how he fits a person to their perfect board, and once that shape and size is decided, he moves forward with sawing away the excess material. “Boards come out of me,” shares Mike, “Michelangelo sees a slab of marble and in that is David. I see a slab of foam and your perfect surfboard.” >>

LOCALLY ART MADE

Once the board is shaped, it makes its way over to where it is then sheathed in fiberglass and coated in resin. The room resembles that of a colorful, experimental laboratory with resin “stalactites” growing on the stands used to hold the surfboards through the resin process. Along the wall, projects are hanging…projects in this case are completed or almost completed surfboards. Mike used a few to demonstrate different techniques. I stand back in awe as he gives me the name of each person whose board he is showcasing. I look around and there are at least 60 surfboards at first glance, and I think, Mike knows each person’s story and what they seek from their surfboard in the most intimate way. This speaks to me as a testament of the passion in his work. After the resin, the boards get sanded and perfected with a “pinline,” which is not mandatory, but it ties the boards together. The tour ends, and I ask Mike, “Why? This process seems laborious and time consuming. Why do you do what you do?” Without hesitation, Mike replies, “Love is the driving force, an expression of your inward self.” The most gratification is derived from the experience of the receiving party, as Mike says, “When you call me back and say ‘omg that is the best surfboard I’ve ever had,’ it’s a very personal experience.” As the words leave Mike’s lips, I too feel the weight and reality in his mission. Mike does not limit what can be created in his work space. “If I can shape it and glass it, I can use it.” Skim boards, body boards, SUP’s and even tables can be requested and obtained. Having been exposed to simply a stint in the world of creating surfboards, the profound admiration and excitement that took over me is like nothing I’ve experienced from an outsider’s standpoint, because at Bird, Mike makes you feel right at home.

DOCK, DINE AND GET NAUTICAL SIX RESTAURANTS TO GET TO BY BOAT BY DARIEN DAVIES

W

hy dine inside when you live on a peninsula? Thankfully, my good matey’s, you don’t have to. The Intracoastal is our eastern version of I-95, where you trade the traffic for a little wake action. If you’re new to the boat life, or just want to find some new hot spots to dock and dine, there are plenty of eateries within a few nautical miles where you can tie up and get down. >>

DECK 84

OLD KEY LIME HOUSE

Location: 840 E. Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach

Location: 300 E. Ocean Avenue, Lantana

Vibe: There is no shortage of live music, cool cocktails and plenty of people watching at Deck. The best part is that there are dock hands who will do all the heavy lifting for you so you don’t have to make your sea legs work off the vessel. You can dine on the patio, deck or inside, but, if you want to get fancy, you can also order the full menu from your boat. I repeat: you can have everything you want delivered to you on your boat. You can order some delicious food and beverage, and maybe enjoy your dessert and some port on your port side, with a swift, stern finish on the stern. Enjoy everything from champagne bottles, piña coladas, a build-you-own bloody Mary bar during brunch, and, oh, food. Life is better on a boat, and thankfully the Deck crew has it covered for us.

Vibe: A forever laid-back, all-are-welcome, beers-are-cold-butthe-personalities-aren’t type of tiki bar. In fact, Old Key Lime House states that it is the oldest waterfront bar in Florida and the largest tiki bar in South Florida. As if you need more reason to visit, it’s also the greatest Florida Gator’s bar from here to Gainesville, and you can watch the Gator games on a jumbo projector screen. Pull up on your boat, dock that sucker and head to the outside bar, inside bar, or any table in between, and enjoy not only live music Wednesday through Sunday, but also the sunset and some friendly convo. It’s a laid back bar/ restaurant that welcomes you to join their vibe and stay a while.

Menu: The prime-catch menu offers American favorites with a fresh seafood twist. You can expect to enjoy house-smoked fish dip, flatbreads, conch chowder, burgers, salads, fish tacos and an assortment of delicious entrees.

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

Menu: Exactly what you’d think: fresh-caught fish, Old Key Lime House chicken wings, Cordero’s Maryland crab cake, smoked mahi and wahoo fish dip, steamed mussels, salads and seafood entrees. Now all that’s left is for you to kick back with a homemade rum runner or piña colada, and finish with their world’s greatest key lime pie.

GUANABANAS RESTAURANT

BANANA BOAT

Location: 960 N. Highway A1A, Jupiter

Location: 739 E. Ocean Ave, Boynton Beach

Vibe: It’s basically a paradise getaway that happens to be in your backyard – no passport required. The lush landscaping, dockside seating and paddleboard rentals (courtesy of Blueline Paddle) are all available upon arrival. Guanabanas is a 100 percent open-air restaurant with palm trees, woven tiki huts and stone pathways that invite you to get lost in island time. They host local, regional and national artists on their tiki stage that overlooks waterfalls (how’s that for background music?), which you can enjoy listening to as you indulge in their diverse menu that includes only fresh-caught Florida seafood.

Vibe: If you want some low-key, waterfront, laid-back action, the Banana Boat is your spot. It’s been in business since 1978 so its had plenty of years to fine tune its offerings, which include tasty drinks, a prime Intracoastal-front location, a diverse menu, and somewhere where you can get lost for several hours. They offer 250 feet of boat dockage real estate so chances are good you’ll find a spot to dock, dine and unwind (and uncork). It might be a good idea to bring your first mate to be your designated captain so you can relax, enjoy the breeze, the boat, and possibly contemplate how good you have it as you embark on your coastal coast.

Menu: It basically screams Sunday Funday. Adult beverages include A1A Lemonade, The Perfect Day, and Mango Beach Break (use your imagination, it all tastes like heaven), and you can enjoy these with their tropical menu items. Start with the Floridian fritters or the smoked fish dip, continue with the shrimp and grits, macadamia coconut fresh catch or the blackened fresh catch sandwich, and finish with the local specialties for dessert… or the aforementioned cocktails.

Menu: There’s definitely enough to fill your gullet. They serve everything from tuna poke nachos to steamed clams, lobster, shrimp and avocado salad, seafood crepe, burgers, seafood entrees and more. Don’t forget the Sunday brunch that includes bloody Mary’s with jumbo shrimp.

SHOOTERS WATERFRONT

TWO GEORGES AT THE COVE

Location: 3033 N.E. 32nd Ave., Fort Lauderdale

Location: 1754 S.E. 3rd Court, Deerfield Beach

Vibe: You’re clearly invited to drink, dock and dine at Shooters. It is a little bit more “yacht” than “canoe,” but still welcoming, pleasant and delicious. This dock and dine location has three outside bars (serving their own beer, nonetheless), 340 feet of available dock space with complimentary dockage every day, special events including full moon yoga, and the always-exciting Sunday brunch. You’ll need more than your GTL tank-top to dine, but that only benefits you as you will get the best bang for your boat-worthy buck.

Vibe: Two Georges at the Cove is located in the best area of Deerfield Beach. Feel free to head out on the boat for the day and return for happy hour, or start for lunch and happen to never leave (oops). There’s more than 300 feet of boat dockage so there should be no problem finding a spot. From there you can head to the massive outside bar for some dock-tails and appetizers. It’s important to mention that they offer overnight boat dockage so you can party and “park” without worry. Now that’s what I call some serious sailing snoozing.

Menu: You can get down on everything from crab cake benedict, lobster salad, shrimp po’ boy, Shooters crispy calamari, fresh oysters, sushi rolls, sandwiches, flatbreads and everything in between. The menu is large and in charge, and is certain to give your boating guests a full belly buoy.

Menu: Other than the Two Georges’ Famous Rum Runner, you can tip back the Dirty Banana, Key Lime Colada or Monkey Punch, which will more than certainly get you in the nautical mood. The food menu offers classic favorites like Mary’s conch fritters, fresh dolphin sandwich, and bang bang shrimp. If you need more sustenance, take a stab at the piña colada mahi, stuffed lobster tail or broiled sea scallops, which are best enjoyed with a cool breeze and a relaxing lounge on your nautical vessel.

Shooters

L

ife is better in your bathing suit and when you smell like Hawaiian Tropic, so grab your boat (or friend’s boat) and get down with an aquatic town where it’s always 5 o’clock. That somewhere is here, and the drinks are always cold, the music always dance-worthy, and the food always a good catch.

CATCHING UP WITH THE HELMSMEN

JUPITER BASED BAND IS TIGHTER THAN EVER BY DAVID ROLLAND

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

W

hen The Atlantic Current last spoke with the five men who make up The Helmsmen, the Jupiter based band had just released their debut EP in a genre of music they touted as “island indie.” Since then, the line-up of lead singer Jesse Glendinning, bassist Micko Paparo, drummer Samuel King, and guitarists Derek Campbell and Jake Constantakos have continued to allow music to rule their lives. The band started out of a lifelong friendship. “Jesse and Derek were childhood best friends,” guitarist Constantakos explained in an

interview. “They’ve always been musically inclined and were jamming and stuff. Eventually it evolved into The Helmsmen in 2013. Then down the road I joined the band and so did the rhythm section.” The five members had a connection even though each Helmsman had their own favorite personal musical genre. “We come from all different backgrounds musically, but we all respect each other’s tastes,” Constantakos said. “Derek likes Jimmy Buffet a lot and Dream Theater. >>

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT


MUSIC

Jesse listens to The Beatles, Arctic Monkeys, and very obscure, small indie bands too. Our drummer, Sam, comes from a background of Michael Jackson and Kanye West. Micko likes surfer, punk rock, and I love blues, R&B, John Mayer – so we all come from a crazy blend.” They call the concoction that the five members bring together as The Helmsmen, island indie, which Constantakos explained as “beach influenced music.” Stating that, “It’s not so much reggae, so we call it island indie since we take stuff from indie rock and folk influences. Both the island and the indie describes our variety.” With the five members all being from Jupiter, the beach and The Atlantic Ocean have played a massive influence on their songwriting. “One of the first songs we recorded as a band was on our The

42

@ATLANTICCU R R E NT

Homework EP, on there was a song called Get Back to the Sea where (Jesse) sings about the ocean calling you. The ocean plays a big part in all our lives. Most of us like to surf, I like to fish and take part in basic boating activities. Just being at the beach by the water, there’s something so relaxing that’s a huge part of the band’s life.” The band’s new music is also influenced by the sound and vibe of the water. Constantakos considers the new music to be some of their best work even if he was obliged to keep the details shrouded in secrecy. “This July we went up to St. Augustine and recorded. I can’t say exactly too much about the studio or the producer because he wants a low, low, low profile, but it was quite an experience. Some of the gear we recorded with was top of the line. This guy worked with huge names.

He saw us perform last tour and wanted to work with us, so it worked out. We recorded everything on tape. We don’t have an estimated release date or a title – you’ll have to wait and see.” Those eager to check out their new music can also keep an eye out for their many live shows up and down the coast, events that Constantakos says are well worth your attention. “While we’re jamming, you can expect tightness from the band and groove dynamics, so it’s not just full blast in your ears. The main thing I’ve been noticing lately is the control. Lately I’ve had musicians come to our show and tell us how good we’ve gotten, which is such a great thing to hear.” Follow along with The Helmsmen in their Vlog on YouTube and on Instagram @helmstagram

HOW I GOT THE SHOT WITH JEFF BIEGE

“C

reating this image was as much about luck and being in the right place at the right time as it was the actual technical part of capturing the image. My girlfriend and I started walking the beaches in early June checking the nesting dates on the first turtle nest of the season. We knew things would start to pick up towards the end of July...and we were right! As usual we made our 5:30 am wake up call so we could get to the beach before sunrise. This day the stars aligned and it was as if everything was scripted in our favor. We arrived at 6:30 am...quickly walked down the beach 100 yards or so, and saw this little guy from 50 yards away. I could see his/her little flippers flapping in the dim light. I ran down and ripped open my camera bag. There was just this one hatchling and I feared it would jump in and swim away before I got my gear ready! I slapped on my 50mm lens and quickly got into position laying on my side in the sand right at the water’s edge. The sun was starting to rise and the clouds were looking perfect for a colorful sunrise! The turtle was a little late making it to the water and was pretty worn out from digging out of the sand and walking from the nest. The waves were small, around 1ft but was big enough to make it pretty hard for him to get out. So as the sun started to rise I started firing off shots. The gold and oranges started to break through as the baby loggerhead made its push for the open ocean. It’s amazing to watch these little guys — the determination and never give up spirt and the automatic need to go towards the sun and out to open ocean. As I continued to lock focus and grab frame after frame, it was hard not to hope and pray that this little guy would make it! The amazing life cycle of the loggerhead can take them a quarter of the way around the planet and many of the mothers find their way back to the same beach they hatched from. I had a good 10 minutes of shooting before the little guy made its way out into the surf. Truly a small miracle, and just one of the amazing gifts you can find on our beaches if you venture out! The ocean truly is a gift. Its up to us to protect it.” @jeffbiegephotography
