The fall after my brother and I launched this brand, we holed up in a small cottage in Montauk, NY to regroup and refresh. Mornings were filled with surfing and drinking hot coffee at Ditch Plains while evenings were spent drinking Dark & Stormy’s at the Surf Lodge and brainstorming around bonfires under clear starry skies. Here, on the furthest end of the Eastern Seaboard, we escaped from the chaos of New York City and basked in an inspiring and rugged landscape.
To this day, Montauk is our little getaway, particularly in the early fall. By then, the crowds have gone, the beaches are wide and sparse, and the water is still warm from the summer sun. This year, with surfboards and some Fall layers in tow, we trekked out with friends for a little surf trip.
