As a South Floridian, the first thing that comes to mind when you say fresh air is what? The beach of course! It seems so simple, yet we may not make it to the beach all week even though we can walk there from our house. At The Atlantic Current, we have discovered just how great this fresh air fix can be, and the many activities that revolve around it. One of our favorites is a cruise down A1A. Now we don’t want things to get too crowded, but we believe if everyone got their daily fresh air fix, we would live in a happier place. That’s why we’ve narrowed down our favorites for this issue’s 5 Ways to get your fresh air fix! instagram.com/the_atlantic_current | twitter.com/atlanticcurrent | Facebook.com/theatlanticcurrent | theatlanticcurrent.com

TOP 5 WAYS

TO GET YOUR FRESH AIR FIX IN SOUTH FLORIDA

T

here’s only one region in the nation that combines a scenic, 72-mile highway, parks that offer every outdoor pleasure, and a myriad of activities to do in saltwater. Without further adieu, we present you with the Top 5 ways to get your fresh air fix in South Florida. Where else would you rather be?

1 Cruise down A1A

A1A is arguably the best spot to cruise for some fresh air – for free. Bike, skateboard, even rollerblade (don’t forget elbow pads) down the beach road and you’ll see sunrises, sand dunes and blue ocean stretching into the endless horizon. If you don’t have time to get out and about, take a quick drive on the 72-mile stretch. Just don’t be the one holding up traffic trying to cop a view.

2 Stand-Up Paddle The versatility of Stand-Up Paddleboarding has made it the fastest growing craze in the South Florida beach scene. Swell or no swell, SUP is a great fix. What to do on your SUP? •Take one out surfing or on an open ocean paddle. •Scenic paddle through the intercoastal waterways. •Want to fish somewhere other than the crowded Deerfield Beach fishing pier? Take a pole with you, paddle out, and cast a line near. And if you prefer to dive for your food, pack your speargun and catch dinner. Don’t have a SUP board? Here are some nearby shops to rent or buy boards. •Nomad Surf Shop (Boynton Beach) •Board Room on Atlantic (Delray Beach) •Boca Surf & Sail (Boca Raton) •Bogaert Boards (Deerfield Beach) •Island Water Sports (Deerfield Beach) •2nd Street Surf Shop (Pompano Beach) Photo: Ben Hicks

•Precision Paddleboards (Pompano Beach) •BC Surf & Sport (Fort Lauderdale)

3 Fishing

Fishing in South Florida operates one of two ways: if you have a boat, fuel up and get on the water. If you don’t, chances are you know a friend of a friend whose cousin has one. If you can sweet talk your way to a boat day, you can take home anything from Swordfish to Kingfish to Tuna. Can’t get on the boat? Well, there’s water everywhere - use your imagination and go fish! Worst case, you will get to kick back, cast a line, and get your fresh air fix.

4 Opt For Outdoor Seating

Many of us are used to choosing AC over the Florida heat, but with a nice breeze coming off the water, we say opt for outdoor seating! There are tons of great bars and restaurants near the water in South Florida. Here are a few Atlantic Current supporters we recommend: •Sandbar •Boston’s On The Beach •Kahuna Bar & Grill •2 George’s at the Cove

5 Get to the Park

Been in a cubicle all week? We’ve got the perfect remedy for you: get some fresh air at one of our many parks. South Florida has a huge variety of parks that offer kayaking, boating, fishing, camping, snorkeling, mountain biking, and much more.

Notable parks to visit •Quiet Waters Park – Deerfield Beach •Red Reef Park – Boca Raton •Markham Park – Sunrise •Oleta River State Park – North Miami •Jonathan Dickinson State Park – Jupiter •Everglades National Park – Homestead •Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge – Palm Beach County •John Pennekamp State Park (great snorkel spot) – Key Largo •Amelia Earhart Park – Hialeah Photo: Jessica Berman

FEATURE TOY

FLYBOARD If you had told Franky Zapata at a young age that he would use his experience from racing jet skis to develop the FlyBoard, a “water sports apparatus that allows propulsion underwater and in the air,” he would have laughed at you. But that’s exactly what he did in 2011, creating prototypes that were able to lift out of water and hover in the air. Zapata Racing filmed these prototypes and uploaded a video online, which received an astounding 2.5 million viewers in 15 days. Resembling something from the Matrix Trilogy, the FlyBoard is connected to a jet ski, and rises up out of the water shooting water downward. Learning to operate one is “very intuitive,” according to Flyboard.com. It’s “similar to learning to ride a bike, waterski, surfing, skating or any other activity that requires a little balance.” Zapata was able to take all of his passions – skiing, using a jet ski, snowboarding and acrobatic diving – and merge them into one machine.

SKATE

2013 Freedom Contest

with Steve Caballero

“Freedom” at Ramp 48 was an event put on by ArtHeart that focused on raising $18,000 to support a group of orphans in Rwanda through an organization named ZOE Ministry. This event brought artists and skaters together to demonstrate their creative skills both in the bowl and on the canvas. Legendary skater Steve Caballero was present – showing the young guns how they did things back in the day. For those who haven’t heard of him, Steve Caballero is known for this variety of technical tricks he invented over the years. Thrasher Magazine even named Steve “Skater of the Century” back in 99’. It was great to see the young up and comers skating with one of the biggest legends in the game. Nathan Hamler was on site to get some shots of the action – enjoy!

Not yet a teenager, Marcos Montoya shows the characteristics of most 12 year old boys – that is until you watch him skate. What first impressed us about Marcos was how humble and easy going he was. He didn’t like to brag or boast – he just flat out loves skating. This young gun is definitely somebody to keep your eye on. The Atlantic Current crew would like to wish Marcos the best of luck in the future, and we look forward to watching him progress!

How did you start skating? I was 8 when my dad got me my first Wal Mart board-I never got off. Then the best uncle ever got me my first pro board and from then on I never stopped. You are a pretty quiet and humble kid, how do you get the confidence to skate the way you do? I’m just crazy influenced by the pros and some of my homies. If you aren’t skating, what are you doing? 20

If I’m not skating I’m sleeping, or watching skate videos while pretending to do homework. What was your worst experience with security guards? None really. I’m still young, so my baby face still works! (laughs) What would your ideal day be? Get up, eat ice cream, and skate Tampa Am. What skaters do you look up to the most? Chaz Oritz, my pops and all my

homies that push me! Any new tricks you are working on? Currently working on Kick Flip back lip but always working on new tricks. What are your plans for the next year? Skate hard, have fun, and hopefully be able to skate Tampa Am this year. Anyone you would like to thank? Definitely my mom and dad for all the time and effort they put in for me, all the people that support me, and my sponsors.

FEATURE FOOD

“The Pilgrim” Ever wish you could eat Thanksgiving dinner year round? We know it can be a big procedure – from the turkey to the stuffing. It takes time and isn’t portable - until now! Feast your eyes on “The Pilgrim,” portable and oh so delicious. This sandwich comes with slow cooked pulled turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. We recommend slapping a slice of provolone on there as well. The Pilgrim is available only at D’Best Sandwich Shop in Boca Raton.

South Florida Beer Week

BREW REVIEW

D

uring South Florida Beer Week, we were lucky enough to test out a few of the beers on tap at the Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery in Boca Raton. The first two beers are brewed for special events and tapped only two to three times per year. The third Buddha beer is on tap regularly. These brews were definitely funky – in a good way. Enjoy!

Crusts A rich imperial brown ale that tastes like you’re biting into a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. This beer has creamy peanut butter in the front and a delicious sweet and fruity aftertaste. Crusts may be 9.2% ABV, but you would swear you were drinking the same sandwich your mom made for you growing up.

Maple Bacon Coffee Porter Need we say more? Rated as the #1 American Porter in the world for over 2 years now, it comes in at a drinkable 6.5% and has flavors of smoke, salty bacon, fresh coffee, and sweet rich maple syrup. This beer is rich in body and taste and it is like having breakfast in a glass.

Hop Gun IPA An IPA in the American tradition of super hoppy and bitter IPA’s. Hop Gun is 7.7% ABV, extremely sessionable, and balanced out with a solid malty backbone. Delicious notes of citrus, earthiness, and piney hops are in every glass. This one is a regular, too, and can be experienced at every happy hour.

FISHING

Diver: Javier Garcia Photo: Jason Arnold


Fishing Report by Tom Greene

South Florida is known around the globe as a world-class fishing destination. Local and National legend Tom Greene gives us an inside look at what’s hitting the line in February and March.

F

ebruary and March in South Florida is a very, very good time for fishing. This is when the tourists come into town and we have a lot of small boat tournaments; we have probably 70 sailfish tournaments, as well as kingfish tournaments up and down the entire east coast from Stuart to the Florida Keys. With the weather changes and the weather patterns we have this time of year, the wind will go northwest, the front will come through, and the temperature will drop about 20 degrees. After the temperature drops the winds will turn around and swing out of the Southeast and everything will warm up for 3-4 days, until the next approaching front. As we sit here today (January 16) we have southeast winds and the weather is 78-82 degrees; tonight it will drop to the high 60’s and the next day all of a sudden it will drop to the 50’s as that front comes through – what this front does for fishing is, it changes the barometric pressure, the temperature of the water goes down, the fish feed, and the fish turn on. What we have found about the sailfish is, as these ground swells and these waves build, the sailfish will literally get up and surf down the waves. You have seen other fish surfing the waves like porpoise and dolphin, and sailfish do the same thing. So over the next 4-5 weeks you have at least 15 tournaments in the immediate local area, and over the next few months they will all be fishing sailfish.

air and you are suspending 3 baits off of that kite, the sailfish come up, and because that bait is laying on the surface, it’s just like if you are a fish, looking up and you see this bait flipping on the surface you come up and investigate and you will see 3 or 4 more baits in that immediate area; so it’s very common in the tournaments in this area for one boat to have 3, 4, or 5 sailfish on at one time. So be aware of that – you will get a lot of bites. Also, these tournaments over the years have produced very large Calcutta’s, where you will enter a tournament, fish 3 days, you’ll buy or catch your bait, expenses might be high but a lot of times a winning boat in these tournaments will win anywhere from $50,000 to $400,000. There were several tournaments last year around the world that paid over $2-3 million dollars for first place. So, tournament fishing can get to be a lot of fun. A lot of boats go at it full bore, and a lot just go have fun. For the weekend angler and for our visitors from up north who want to entertain their guests this is the time of year, for the next few months, where you can catch all the sailfish you want to catch.

The next thing that happens this time of year is reef fishing whether we catch yellow tails or mutton snapper; any morning or afternoon you can drift in 120 feet of water on in to 60 feet of water and catch yellowtail snapper as well as mutton snapper with very good consistency. This has been going Now, how do we catch sailfish? The bait of on for many, many years and you can do choice is live bait, whether it’s a live goggle it with a variety of baits; sardines, squid, eye, sardine, pilchard, or ballyhoo. All of ballyhoo, and pilchards; use these types these baits are fished, either slow trolled of frozen bait and you can catch fish. Kids behind the boat, drifted behind the boat, have fun with this; you can anchor up and or fished out of a kite. Everybody asks, have a chum line and anyone can go out “what in the world is a kite?” Well, if you and catch snapper and grouper this way can understand a boat with outriggers, and have a ball, and this happens over the what you are doing is fishing a kite in the next few months day and night.

“Bubblehead” vs Breathholding

I

really couldn’t help myself. There I was with my beautiful wife for a romantic lunch on Valentine’s Day overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway at Two Georges Restaurant at the Cove in Deerfield Beach. Our server Chris takes our order but proceeds to ask about my watch. Of course it’s not just a watch – it’s also a dive computer. So we get into a lengthy discussion about diving, spearfishing and boating. I must admit that I almost forgot I was with my wife as the conversation turned into free diving versus SCUBA diving. Chris said that he does both but most of his buddies are strictly free divers. They even gave him the nickname “Bubblehead”. Hardcore free divers view SCUBA diving while hunting as cheating. And while you are not able to claim any world records on SCUBA, there are elements to free diving that make spearfishing more of a sport. However, the use of SCUBA shouldn’t be viewed as a bad thing. Don’t call your buddy names just because he or she adds a tank of air on their back. After all, shooting a fish while using the noisy breathing contraption of SCUBA should be given some bonus points, don’t you think? Spearfishing in open water on SCUBA presents numerous challenges regarding proper buoyancy control and navigational skills with the added dimensions of deep diving and wreck diving. And it always seems that you are down to 500 pounds of air when the big fish comes along. You can run out of air even on SCUBA. Spearfishing while freediving adds the element of being attached to a fish that can keep you underwater for an extended period of time. Additionally, shallow water blackout is a real danger with the added exertion of spearing a fish. There is sort of an “added value” while spearfishing on SCUBA or freediving. You must learn the value of being yourself as both a SCUBA diver and/or a freediver. Only after you have achieved the skills of an accomplished diver can you add the elements necessary for spearfishing. And you must always dive with a buddy - especially regarding the risk of shallow water blackout associated with freediving. Typically, the only requirement that is necessary to spear fish in most areas is to purchase a fishing license. Some areas require a special permit if you are a visitor but there’s no requirement to take any type of safety or spearfishing course. There are certifying agencies within the dive community that have instructors that can teach specialty spearfishing courses. This is a must for anyone interested in learning how to properly spear fish. Not only will they review proper safety techniques but will teach you the various hunting techniques to successfully bring home your fish. Another option is to join your local spearfishing club as typically these clubs provide a “culture of safety” when it comes to spearfishing. I view it like this: it’s all about what works for what condition. Let’s face it, it’s all about bringing home the fish, whichever way works best for you. So don’t call your buddies names, and get with the program. “Bubblehead” Chris did recommend the lobster melt along with a couple of rum punches, and I quickly remembered it was Valentine’s Day and my wife does have that ability to bring me back to reality.

Jim “Chiefy” Mathie is the author of Catching the BUG-The Comprehensive Guide to the Spiny Lobster and soon to be released Catching the Spear-it!-The ABC’s of Spearfishing. Visit www.chiefy.net for more information.

Top 10 Ways to Stay Healthy During Flu Season

HEALTH &

Flu season is here and back with a vengeance. Here are 10 tips on how to protect yourself and build a spartan like army as your immune system.

Sleep – We need at least 6 hours per night or we can go

1 ahead and pretty much expect to get the flu. Less than 6

hours of sleep makes us 30% immune deficient the next day. Water – We are almost 70% water, water is mainly what our blood

2 is composed of too. We need plenty of water to transport vital nutri-

ents to our cells. Use this equation to prevent dehydration: Your weight / 16 = The # of 8 oz. glasses of water you need to drink per day. Wash hands often – So far this article is telling you nothing

3 that you do not already know. Wash your hands often with soap and avoid touching your face.

4 Amino Acids – These are the building blocks of protein synthesis.

Protein is what our immune system needs to build cells that defeat foreign invaders. You need to increase your amino acid intake to give your immune system enough ammo to fight a battle. I recommend an amino acid called MAP (Master Amino Pattern), which is used by cancer patients as well as Tour de France cyclists to increase protein levels. Proteolytic Enzymes – These enzymes digest protein and can

5 be taken in two ways. First, they can be used with food to digest

protein and spare your body’s own proteolytic enzymes. The more that we can spare our own natural source of these enzymes the more we will have for battling foreign invaders. Second, we can use these enzymes away from food to digest bacteria and viruses. When taken away from food they enter our bloodstream and target the protein rich wall of a viral/baterial infection and digest it/destroy it. Exercise – Exercise not only boosts endorphin levels which makes

6 you feel great but sweating will help empty the 70 trillion garbage

cans in our body (cellular waste). When fighting a foreign invader our cells accumulate waste that needs to be exited through the avenues of elimination (skin, liver, kidneys, bowels). Making sure our garbage collectors are emptying their trash cans is important in detoxification. Infrared Sauna – Dry heat is another great way to sweat especially

7 if you are too sick to move and exercise. Find a sauna and detox or

build one at home for about $500 with some PVC pipe, tenting materials and infrared bulbs from Home Depot for a quick made detox center.

8 Butter – This superfood has such a bad rap but has many great

qualities. Butter is composed of lauric acid which is the same fat that is in breast milk. We all know it may be a little awkward to ask a breast feeding mom for a glass of the good stuff so go ahead and buy a stick of butter and spare yourself some strange looks. Lauric acid has an anti viral, anti bacterial and anti microbial effect that helps to build a strong immune system. Organic butter from grass fed cows is your best option.

9 Reduce sugar intake – Sugar feeds bacteria and helps it

thrive. Starve an infection by reducing sugar intake. Sugar provides energy and should not be eliminated but good choices of sugar are the way to go. Natural sugars are in fruit and vegetables as well as honey and molasses – they should be part of a healthy diet. Processed sugars such as white or brown sugar and corn syrup should be avoided or limited. Cut back on sugar-loaded foods such as candy, baked goods, sugary cereals and sodas to reduce your cancer risk and help to improve your immune system. Probiotics – Using probiotics, such as Kombucha Tea, is like sending a huge protective army into your body to fight off the bad guys. Yes, you are drinking a live bacteria culture, but this stuff is seriously good for you and the crew at The Atlantic Current swears by it.

SURFERS FOR AUTISM

W

iping tears from her eyes, Jewelee Tervo watches her son slowly stand on a surfboard as the whitewash gently pushes him into shore. Twelve-year-old Cameron steps off the board, as a handful of volunteers give him a high five and a pat on the back. For Jewelee, this scene is absolutely priceless. Because Cameron has Asperger’s syndrome, he “never exhibited happiness,” according to his mother. But at any given Surfers for Autism event, he beams from ear to ear.

“We knew when Cameron was young that there was something different about him - he didn’t find enjoyment in stuffed animals and matchbox cars,” Jewelee said.

Parents who have children on the autism spectrum know all too well the process that ensued, with an endless amount of doctor appointments and tests that would bring worries and questions. Cameron then became part of the staggering statistic released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that 1 in 88 children have some form of autism. It’s also the fastestgrowing developmental disability, according to the Autism Society. Symptoms for autism depend upon the functionality of the person, and include limited interest in activities, repetitive use of language, significant nonverbal communication skills, and a delay in learning how to speak. “Cameron is high functioning,” said Tervo, “but dealing with things outside of his comfort zone are huge.” Cameron’s younger sister – Hannah –was also diagnosed on the spectrum. Watch36

ing television one afternoon, Jewelee saw a segment on children with Autism surfing on Florida beaches, not far from their house. After listening to testimonials of parents and children, the family decided to give Surfers for Autism a chance. On the beach, the family was met by a multitude of friendly volunteers, trying to make the day special for all families involved. This is a goal of Don Ryan, who founded the organization, to provide children with what the organization calls “developmental delays” an enjoyable beach day completely centered on them. Both of Jewelee’s children “let go” at the event. Hannah, who has difficulty separating herself from her mother, quickly latched onto a surfboard and enjoyed every second if it. Cameron, vulnerable and outside of his comfort zone, didn’t stop smiling. It floored Jewelee. “I don’t think there’s a word to describe it,” she said. “I don’t think I’ve been to an event where I haven’t cried, seeing the success of my own child or of another child.” Every time I’ve personally visited with Ryan about the organization, he continually tells me stories about its therapeutic aspect. With tears in his eyes, he’ll tell anyone inquiring about hearing autistic children speak their first words to their parents after catching a wave. He’ll recall watching children who rarely interact with others energetically slapping volunteers’ hands. He’ll proudly say that he saw children throw tantrums at events – common

among those on the spectrum – but no one would gawk and give the child’s parents a dirty, ‘get your kid under control’ look, because of the protective and friendly atmosphere at events. With eyes resembling a proud grandfather, Ryan will tell you he’s seen lives changed. “Don and Kim (Ryan) genuinely care about these kids,” said Tervo. It’s because the founding couple has put so much time, energy and care into the organization, that it’s spread to international acclaim, holding events in Puerto Rico and Australia. Families will fly across the country and spend endless hours driving just to watch their child receive these therapeutic benefits. Visit the upcoming SFA event April 5-7 at the Deerfield fishing pier or any of the events up the coast and you’ll watch families, like the Tervo’s, experience an emotional and life changing beach day. – Cash W.

Tony Arruza has the most impressive quiver in the South Florida surf scene. Glance into his boardroom and you’ll see some of the following: a 6’0” Nomad fish with a photo of a mullet chase in action above and below the water on the bottom of the board (left), a 6’6” B.A.T. single fin with a black and white monstrous wave crashing in almost spooky fashion (above) and a 7’6” Firo fun board with a Pipeline bomb a fraction of a second from detonating as the sun’s rays glimmer through the lip of the wave. These boards, created for both surfing and decoration, will hit a local showroom floor in exhibition form sometime in 2014, when the renowned photographer has completed the project. To date, Arruza has completed over half of the proposed 15 pieces of fine art. “Surfing and photography are my two biggest passions in life and I thought, ‘why not try something like this?’” Arruza said.

It’s the innovative method that he’s using to place the high-resolution prints on boards, shaped by 15 high profile shapers nationwide, that’s garnering momentum in the art realm. The lengthy process began when Arruza decided to create the prototype (left). He met with a South Florida shaper and decided on a board size and an image that would best compliment the style of the board, printed a highresolution image of the photo, and placed it onto the foam blank as the shaper glassed over. “I couldn’t believe how it first came out,” said Arruza, when the prototype dried. “We were putting the resin on it and I was looking at the insane quality - it was an eye opener.” Arruza has been adamant about shining light on the

shapers who created the mediums of art, and will include their portraits and photos of the entire process in the upcoming gallery. “It’s about paying homage to the shaper - the person who is very artistic in his own way,” he said. “Not many people understand how much artistic ability is required.” With this project, Arruza has removed the glass case restrictions from art and replaced it with high functioning masterpieces – Cash W.

FAU BASEBALL & SOFTBALL

Photos: Ben Hicks

Q: Season is getting ready to start, and your team plays a lot of games. How do you get yourself physically and mentally ready for the season? Mark: In the Fall we have plenty of practices and scrimmages, lots of lifting and running. The team does a good job of getting us ready. Taylor: I put in extra work at least 2 times a week to get me physically ready and then mentally, honestly, I just take it day by day and think about what I need to work on. Q: Your thoughts on this year’s team, your strengths and opportunities, and how you feel the team will perform this year. Mark: This is one of the best teams I have played on; we have depth hittingwise and with pitching, so our strength is we have a lot of power in the lineup and our pitchers should be good from starters to the bullpen. Taylor: We definitely picked up some good infielders and outfielders, we have much more speed this year, and our team camaraderie is much better. As far as how we are going to be this year, we are taking it day by day and when we play our goal is going to be to win that game. 42

Q: What is your daily training and workout regimen? Mark: We have conditioning at 7am then classes and I make sure I get plenty to eat, and then we jump back in to practice and I eat again before weights and then eat again afterwards, you know, just eat well to maintain your weight and stay in good physical shape. Taylor: We normally work out 2 times and week and then practice as much as we can. If we play over the weekend we have Monday’s off but other than that we train every day. Q: Favorite junk food? Mark: Not much of a junk food guy, maybe chips or something like that. Taylor: Buffalo chicken, at Duffy’s! Q: Favorite band? Mark: That’s a tough one. My walk up song is by Nelly, but I’m more of a country guy. Taylor: I have no idea, I’m not a music fiend. Q: Pre game meal and routine? Mark: Chicken, something that will fill me up but not too much, maybe a shake. Taylor: I always bring a peanut butter

sandwich to eat before the game. I really don’t have a pregame routine. Q: When I’m not playing, practicing, or working out, I’m ……….. Mark: Just relaxing, either in the apartment or the locker room, hanging out with the guys, building some chemistry. Taylor: Either school, work, reading a book, or laying out by the pool. Q: What’s the craziest thing that has happened on a road trip? Mark: Probably in Alabama last year; we swept Alabama and were supposed to fly back but the bus broke down and we didn’t get back to Boca until about noon the next day---a little crazy but fun and interesting. Taylor: (Voice in the background “Keep it PG, please!”): When Quincy Wilson got stuck in the door of the van--the door kept shutting and wouldn’t open! Not that many crazy things happen. Q: Anything for Owl Nation? Mark: Come watch us play. Support the team. You will enjoy it! Taylor: Come out and support us! We need all the support we can get and we will hopefully have a great season.

Women’s Head Softball Coach Joan Joyce

Q: Coach, you’ve experienced an incredible career; 11 Halls of Fame, records galore here at FAU, professional golfer, professional softball player, the list goes on and on. Did you ever imagine you would have this kind of career? A: Oh no, not at all. I think I have always been a realist, and one of my best skills is to take everything one day at a time. I’m not sure I have ever set a goal in my life. When I played softball and pitched, it was one pitch at a time, and wherever we ended the season, it was what it was. But one thing I have is, I’m a heck of a competitor, I don’t like to lose, and I will work real hard not to lose, and if I do lose, I work hard to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Q: What have been your keys to success and have those keys changed over the years? A: Teaching the kids the knowledge of the game, how to run bases, especially the girls, because they don’t watch baseball, so as they grow up playing the coaches tell them what to do all the time so they don’t really have a grasp of what the game is like. So teaching them the game, how to play the game is most important. Q: Over the years, how have the players changed, and how have the ways you motivate them changed? A: You know, that’s a very good question. Some days we come out and play different games with each other, and they don’t have to be softball games; could be kickball, hitting left handed (if you are right handed), throwing with your non throwing hand, and they are so competitive.

a Michigan team walk onto the field, they don’t have that same attitude toward them, and that can drive me crazy. The players tell me it’s music that can get them pumped up and I’m telling them they are at the wrong school; it’s when the other team walks on the field is what pumps you up, to beat them, and it’s hard to get them to that mentality and it’s something we work on all the time. Q: What are your prospects for this coming season? A: We brought in five recruits this year, and I think we will have four of them starting, which says a lot about the talent we brought in. We had issues last year at 2nd base and shortstop, and two of the players we brought in play those positions. The Freshmen we brought in last year have spent the summer working on their skills and they have gotten a lot better. So, we have the potential to have a real good team. Q: If you weren’t coaching what would you be doing? A: Playing golf! Q: Favorite athlete of all time? A: Mickey Mantle Q: Favorite post game meal? A: Hot dogs! Q: Any last words for Owl Nation? A: I think if you look at our schedule we have some really good teams coming in here, and our conference is really tough and I think our conference teams are as good as or better than half the other teams we have coming in. Come out and watch us!

Interview With the

Band

Q: What is your craziest road story? A: The craziest road story I can think of came on our last trip out West just recently with our label-mates Kayavibe. While we were on stage at Redfest in Red River, New Mexico, some hapless dudes went through our bus and robbed us of our computers. Our new album (almost finished) was on those hard drives. With an entire detective team effort consisting of The Supervillains, Kayavibe, Redfest security, and the New Mexico rangers, we took down the burglars and got our stuff back! Happy endings like that rarely happen to us, so we would like to additionally thank Nick Novak from Kayavibe and his deadly right hook. Q: Who is your most extreme fan? A: Our most extreme fan is a kid from Gainesville, Fla. He let our merch guy come on-stage and spit in his mouth for a t-shirt (we dared him). When we came through the next time, he let our sax player kick him in the nuts onstage for another t-shirt (we double-dogdared him). He was all crumpled up on stage with this vomit-drool substance cascading out of this mouth, and it looked like it hurt A LOT. We haven’t seen the kid since. Q: Favorite song(s) to perform? A: The party songs like “Drinkin Tonight” and “Resin” are big crowd favorites, so we usually get pretty pumped playing those. Personally I like playing the crazy-fast punk stuff like “The Pit” or “Rapture” (off our new Robots EP) because it’s a lot of fun to watch the crowd react and go nuts! Q: What are your pregame rituals before shows? A: Our pre-game rituals pretty much just come down to getting loose: Some mild stretching, a couple of jumping jacks, maybe a couple dice games going on in the bus. Starting to get loud and in character, some cocktails, 46

some swats, a couple last-minute tweeks to the set list, some inspirational words and a “Whoa Bundy” and it’s time to get it on!

gets taken care of and keeping the show rolling (while maintaining your sanity) can definitely be difficult to negotiate.

Q: What has been your toughest roadblock as a band? A: I think the toughest roadblock that we all face in our situation is just keeping it together. Balancing your personal life and your professional life is a huge task when you run your own business, and in our case our business calls for being away from home for extended periods of time. It takes a toll on your families, loved ones and yourselves. We are a DIY band that owns our own label, manages ourselves, records in the tour bus, plays every night and controls its own destiny so there is definitely plenty of work to go around. Making sure that all the work

Q: What is the best way for fans to support The Supervillains? A: The best and easiest way to support the Supervillains is obviously to pay for the music we put out rather than ripping it offline. It costs a lot of time and money to get everything sounding right and out to the public so without fans buying our product, we wouldn’t be able to keep it going. Another way is to get out to a show and party with us! We seriously love our fans more than anything and we try to make ourselves as available as possible for them at shows. So come out to a show, have a great time, buy a t-shit and a CD, get them all signed by the band, and we will all live happily ever after!

e bounds into the restaurant, looks around, and takes off in a direction opposite of where I am sitting, as I wait to meet this ace guitarist from the band, The Heavy Pets. A moment later he is back into view, and heads my way, probably thinking “this guy is out of my age bracket….could this be the interview guy?” He slides into the booth and I can tell immediately this ain’t his first interview rodeo. Jeff reminds me a bit of Shawn White, but without the snowboard. He’s amped up, maybe from a big night the night before, more likely that he is genuinely interested in talking about the band, their plans, and the music scene in the South Florida area. Jeff is at once engaging, articulate, and has a clear vision of where he and his band mates are headed. Now, I am a new fan of the Pets, having just downloaded 48

their self titled work “The Heavy Pets” and after giving it a quick listen, I like it. I mean, I really like it. They have a style of their own, their production and vocals (all 5 members share vocals) are slick, and the somewhat complex but fresh and very memorable melodies are something one expects from a band filled with musicians with excellent chops. I pick up notes of Steely Dan, Fountains of Wayne, maybe some others, but after listening to the disk all the way through, there is no one description to pin on this band. It’s a Heavy Pets sound. Here are some excerpts from a rambling interview that hits on topics from musical influences, how their last two albums came about, life touring and playing 150 dates a year, and what might be in store for Heavy Pet fans across the US of A.

So, after your self titled record “The Heavy Pets” came out, you followed it up with an acoustic record – why the shift? Jeff: Well, what led to the creation of both of those records was that we signed with a record label, a local record label called 102 Degrees, and we are not with them any longer but they did a really good job by us and they sent us out to California to work with a fantastic Producer and a fantastic Engineer; the producer flew out to Florida and we played like, 80 songs for him to hear, and he kind of narrowed it down, and he said we have more than enough material for 2 records so we’ll do one electric and one acoustic, because really some of the material is just better geared toward acoustic. “The Heavy Pets” were really well received, named a top 10 album of 2010 by the Huffington Post – what was your reaction to this? Jeff: Well I was pretty excited about that…..um, it’s always exciting when the critics like it, and it’s always exciting when the fans like it and we were really happy about that because it introduced our music to a lot of new people.

Jeff: It’s growing rapidly and that’s something we are really proud of and proud to be a part of….we go to these scenes in all parts of the country, and I’m not going to name any names, but there are a lot of cities that tout themselves as this great music scene and I go there and feel like it happened 20 years ago, or 10 years ago and people are grasping at the tail end of something, whereas here I feel like it’s erupting and there’s an incredible amount of talent and culture here, and because the area is so huge bands can come play West Palm, Lauderdale, Miami, and the Keys and hit different audiences. It’s a thriving music scene and even though none of us are from here we are proud to call south Florida home.

another one in February. And, we hope to do another album soon; we have a ton of material that has never made its way to an album, and just go in and record a ton of material live, maybe over dub some vocals or guitar solos and just try to keep it true to who we really are, just touched up a little bit, and that’s what our fans really want.

So the interview wraps up, we exchange thank you’s, and Jeff quickly bolts for the door. I tried to get some juicy dirt on tour What bands have you really enjoyed escapades and he wouldn’t take the bait, touring with, and who would you like only saying that The Heavy Pets are a real to tour with? rock ‘n roll band and they do the things Jeff: There is one band we have probably that go along with that, (“things can get been playing and touring with the longest out of hand”) and that their reputation and it’s appropriate I am mentioning them on the road has probably “improved” over now because they have announced they So what’s up with your next album, the years (I really didn’t buy it…..). He did are going to be taking a break, a band what is the band thinking about? offer up his early influences which is the called Perpetual Groove and they are some Jeff: Our latest EP is a huge departure stuff I listened to back in the day, and of our favorite people out there, and it from our previous 2 records and the most still do; Hendrix, Mountain, Deep Purple, makes it easy because we have almost an obvious reason for that is that we self Johnny Winter, so all of a sudden I feel identical stage set up. As far as who we’d produced it, and a guy Daryl Wolff has a I’m more in his “age bracket” and maybe like to tour with, there are several bands studio here in town very close to our own we have a little more in common than I from the jam band realm like Umphrey’s and we can go in there and plug in and thought. The Heavy Pets Radio is my newMcGee, moe., and part of it is these are play and get a high quality live recording, est edition on Pandora, and I beefed up high octane rock and roll bands much like and that’s what we did for our last EP, we the lineup with some of his faves, includus, with 2 guitars. And there are bands went in and did a couple of takes of each ing Umphrey’s McGee, Perpetual Groove, who do things outside of what we do like song and picked the best ones and mixed The Dirty Projectors, and Grizzly Bear.
