    Yep! So cool it is still around. Why I chose it start posting in even though I am landlocked as a surfer smack dab in the middle of the country. Jam skateboard days were fun times!!!!

    Colorado has a connection to a famous surfmusic group, The Astronauts from Boulder.

    Interesting documentary on them, kicks in a few minutes into the vid after discussion about a venue they played in.
