Surfing as Rehab

Flea Virostko
Interesting story in the New York Times about Santa Cruz’s Darryl “Flea” Virostko and his battle with meth addiction and how he’s helping others turn their lives around with his Flehab surf program.  It’s scary to fathom that the “first time [he] surfed waves as tall as three-story buildings at Mavericks, the legendary surf spot some 50 miles north of [Santa Cruz], he was high on acid.”

Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
