City of Long Branch Proclamation
September 24, 2016 - the Kiernan Surfing Association Day!...


Time marches on with the beat of all our yesterdays, the beat of those who have walked “a beach path marked with glory” this path that was Kiernan Boulevard. As you walk to the beach you reflect on yesterday, your beat and all that is entrenched in your fondest memories. There now comes the younger, the future, as they walk to their beat and are building their memories which then shall become their beat of yesterday. The glory is the pinnacle of achievements of the many that have walked this path. It has been our Blessing to have “a beach path marked with glory.” Take the walk to your beat. It’s that we wish to nurture and preserve.

What’s on your mind? I see this every day I go to Facebook, so I thought, today this is on my mind…….THE DAY…..I’ve been asked to write a short surf bio focusing mainly on a completive surf history, what’s difficult and most important is adding, The Day…….Every surfer regardless of stature has had one. The Day when all was perfect, anyway as close to perfect as one can get……..You and a good friend are surfing, uncrowded morning off shores or evening glass with a nice swell running, tubes, make that second break, paddle back out and catch the next set and do it all over again, and again and again. Everything in tune, you and the wave, you’re locking in with the natural rhythm and patterns around you. You are building memories and feelings you will remember always. Sandy Hook, Kiernan, Hatteras, Swami’s, Rincon, K-38, Sunset, Hanalei Bay, Acid Drops and truly, truly the best place surfed is that place without a name, your own place. THE DAY and then comes the next, THE DAY.
