The Last Acoustic Night of 2011

  If it’s schmaltzy to say, “Thank goodness for Mike Shackelford,” then we accept the schmaltz.  We’re sentimental about living in a small, coastal town, where neighbors wander over to the park for an open-mic style Acoustic Night each month on a Sunday evening – May through October.  The city of Atlantic Beach sponsors the […]

Kurtis Loftus Goes for a Record

A local beaches man, Kurtis Loftus, is a graphic designer, artist, surfer, athlete, and a guy who is passionate about life in our beautiful coastal community. For five years, he’s run in the 26.2 Donna Deegan Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer. This year, he wanted to do something different. So he combined his love of surfing with his competitive spirit, and is looking to break the Guinness World Book of Record for number of hours surfed, and is raising money for the ‘breast cancer marathon’ while he’s doing it. This video was shot after Kurtis had been in the water for just over six hours.
