During the 1990s, more than 50% of municipal waste in the Garden State was recycled, but since then our numbers have dropped.

Today, the combined municipal recycling rate in New Jersey has fallen below 40%, but in many ways recycling is much more complex than before.

For years, many kinds of waste, especially plastic containers, were all shipped to China for recycling, but as of 2018, the Chinese no longer accept many recyclable materials from the United States, which means New Jersey cities and counties had been paying to get rid of their recyclables suddenly have to start paying to have the materials recycled.

Doug O’Malley, director of Environment New Jersey, said that while Garden State’s recycling rate is better than some other states, it’s not where it should be.

There is no trash fairy

“Every ton of trash that isn’t recycled goes somewhere. There’s no trash fairy, so either it goes to a landfill or it ends up being burned in an incinerator in our community,” a- he declared.

Recycling is uneven

He said some New Jersey counties have adopted a county-wide recycling program, but the materials that are ultimately collected for recycling may differ from city to city.

“Some cities require dual-stream recycling where you have to separate your glass and paper and plastics, and some counties and cities only have a direct single-stream method where they will sort after the materials are collected,” did he declare.

The state Department of Environmental Protection tracks recycling efforts in every county, and some are more successful than others.

In North Jersey, the leader is Bergen County. Mercer and Middlesex are doing well in central Jersey. Cape May and Cumberland score highest in South Jersey.

Counties that are facing recycling issues include Hunterdon, Hudson, Union and Atlantic.

To see how your county is ranked by DEP for recycling, you can look here.

O’Malley pointed out that recycling coordinators in different parts of the state oversee different programs, while reminding local residents “that recycling isn’t just a good thing that someone else is doing, it’s is a good thing that everyone should do”.

Do not be shy

He said to increase the amount of material that will be recycled in Jersey, local residents should start asking questions

“Do you have a recycling coordinator in your city, and does that person go there and educate more people in the community, and is there an enforcement if people don’t recycle ?”

He said some Jersey residents end up ‘wanting to cycle’, putting things in the recycling bin that they would like to think should be recycled, such as a bowling ball, but are actually not materials. recyclable, which slows down the whole recycling process.

“Only 5% of plastics are recycled in this country, so just because something is recyclable doesn’t mean it will be recycled,” O’Malley said.

15 Sensational Places to Visit in Seaside Heights and Seaside Park

From the rides to all the boardwalk food to the many water fun, Seaside Heights and nearby Seaside Park has remained a family friendly place for all ages.

Along the way, the Seaside Heights boardwalk and Casino Pier were hit by tragic disasters, such as a fire, Super Hurricane Sandy, and another fire. Both have proven their resilience through reconstruction and expansion.

I’m going to San Diego next week. And yes, I drive.

Last year I made the RV trip and went door to door in 52 hours.

This year I’m taking the Jeep coast to coast and trying to beat my time.

My wife Jodi and my son Michael leave early and I deliver the car. Then my wife and I will fly.

I know it’s possible and easier to ship the truck, but I love the drive!

It’s the perfect way for me to decompress before taking two weeks off.

I will listen to local radio as I cross the highways and get a local feel for each area I pass through.

Driving gives you a real perspective of how other states and communities operate.

Leaving the Garden State to get a glimpse of what freedom and affordability look like is a great reminder of why I fight every day to restore freedom and prosperity to New Jersey.

As for the journey, according to Google maps, it takes about 42 hours by real road from Princeton to San Diego.

I think 2 hours of gas stops leaves me with 8 hours of downtime.

Here is my thought.

Go home after Friday’s show and sleep for 3-4 hours.

Leave my house at 3 p.m. and drive for 18-20 hours. That means I’d be ready to stop around 11 a.m.

If I take the road through St. Louis and Oklahoma City, the trip should only take 41 hours.

The challenge is that St. Louis has become a dangerous place and I would have to schedule gas stops to make sure I get through St. Louis with a full tank.

I could stop in Bloomington where I should arrive in about 13 hours.

This stop makes sense if I’m leaving right after the show.

So, as you can see, I’m still undecided on the best route and departure time. Help me if you can!

Contact me on the free New Jersey 101.5 app and let me know your thoughts.

Do you think I can do it in 52 hours or less? Bet the least!

WAILUKU — When Jennifer Driggers’ car was stolen from the parking lot outside her apartment in Wailuku, she called the police and then conducted her own investigation.

This eventually led her to Piihana Road in Wailuku, where a car is believed to have burned down. She asked if anyone had seen her car, then left. Three minutes later, she received a call to return to the area and someone handed her the burnt-out license plate from her black 2017 Chevy Malibu SS.

The car, worth $55,000, was found burned down in the Piihana Farms area, she said. A chain was around the car, which had its trunk and hood missing and three catalytic converters cut out.

“I just don’t understand why this happened to me” said Driggers, who was going to work at 6:30 a.m. on June 2 when she discovered her car had been stolen. He was found the same day.

“Why don’t bad people have to suffer, but good people do, people who work for a living to pay for what’s theirs. I know it happens everywhere, but when it happens to you , it really hits a nail.

Through July 28, police said 511 vehicles were reported stolen in Maui County this year, an increase of nearly 41% from the 363 vehicles stolen during the same period last year.

Kihei resident TJ Prentice said his 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty truck was stolen from the carport of his home as he and his wife slept in the early morning hours of May 29. Their surveillance video showed a man getting into the truck, starting it and driving off.

His wife posted about the theft on social media and spoke to people who said they saw the truck. After searching the backcountry, Prentice passed the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center and “about to give up” when his wife called to say the truck had been spotted a minute earlier at the Shell station on Waiehu Beach Road.

When he arrived and saw the truck, Prentice called 911 and used his wife’s car to pin the truck. He said a policeman arrived quickly, followed soon after by two others. The 31-year-old man who stole the truck passed out in the passenger seat, Prentice said, and a pipe and a meth syringe were found in the vehicle.

The man was arrested but posted bail the same day.

The solid steel base plate under the truck had been removed and its muffler was cut on the bottom, Prentice said. Because the truck is diesel, “there are no precious metals in there”, he said.

The $84,000 truck is still being repaired, with damage estimated at $16,000 so far, Prentice said. He rented a truck for his business, Pacific Greens Turf.

While all of his tools were in the truck, insurance won’t cover the loss of a backpack and a Yeti drone he used for work, Prentice said.

“It endangers my employees who earn money” he said.

A resident of a Maalaea condominium complex, who asked not to be identified for fear of reprisal, said his silver 2014 Toyota Tacoma truck with surf racks was stolen from the parking lot on the night of July 19 or early morning of July 20. “He was in perfect condition” he said.

When he called the police, “they basically told me there was nothing we could do” said the resident. He recalled an officer saying: “Go see Piihana Farms.”

The resident still hasn’t gotten his truck back, which he says would cost between $10,000 and $15,000 to replace.

At the same resort, tourists who had rented a Jeep woke up at 3 a.m. on July 25 to drive to Haleakala, to find the Jeep gone from the parking lot, the resident said.

In the nearly a year he has lived at the resort, he said at least two catalytic converters have been stolen and there have been a dozen instances of gasoline theft. “There is an epidemic here” he said.

When Driggers called the police again after burning his license plate on the afternoon of June 2, officers arrived and a crowd gathered around the Wili Pa Loop area of ​​Wailuku. She saw three boys pass and recognized them from social media posts showing them in her neighbor’s car, which was stolen that morning from the same parking lot as hers.

When the police approached the boys, they called one of them, “Why did you take my car? Why did you do this to me?”

The boy replied, “I’m sorry. It’s all messed up. I didn’t burn it. said the dredgers.

She said the boy was handcuffed but had not been arrested. An officer later told her the teenager admitted to taking the car belonging to her neighbour, who declined prosecution after the car was returned undamaged.

When asked about the Driggers stolen car case, Maui police spokeswoman Alana Pico said: “At this time, no arrests have been made, as the suspects are minors.”

“Currently the investigation is ongoing as there are potentially other related cases, and once completed it will be forwarded to Family Court,” said Pico.

Asked for more information on the suspects and related cases, Pico said “there are several suspects” aged 16 to 17.

“Other cases are still under active investigation for various offences,” she said by email.

Regarding reports of stolen cars being burned in the Piihana area, Pico said: “Unfortunately, fires in the Piihana area are not uncommon and cannot be directly linked to stolen vehicles, but are being investigated.”

On the afternoon of July 24, the fire department responded to a 2-acre fire off Piihana Road that burned an area of ​​brush containing abandoned vehicles and trash.

Photos of the fire showed vehicles huddled together in an area, which some say was not the case a few weeks ago.

” I don’t understand “ said the dredgers. “Why aren’t they doing anything about it? There are burning cars everywhere.

JWhile it’s true that there’s never really a bad time for ribs, BBQ ribs in the summer are extra special. You can eat outside. You get to embrace the mess.

Eating ribs indoors requires a modicum of civility to keep your clothes, furniture, and face gravy-free. We snack on them with sticky pinkies. We can dream of tearing up those tender, succulent ribs with our bare hands and going to town on them like a dog with a cushion, but we don’t, because we’re not barbarians.

As winter turns to spring and our days get longer, our patience for rib restraint diminishes. We emerge in the great outdoors with a thirst for freedom. Freedom to run barefoot through wet grass. Freedom to cartwheel on the sand and splash around in the waves. Freedom to eat ribs like no one is watching.

The most tender and meatiest of all the ribs is the baby back, which has nothing to do with babies, but everything to do with the back. They come from the back of the pig, where they wrap around the loin.

Because it’s the leanest part of the pork, ribs have very little fat and plenty of meat to drizzle with copious amounts of sweet, sticky gravy. All pork ribs will melt off the bone when cooked slowly and slowly, but thanks to their small size – it’s the shortest rib cut – baby backs will go from grill to table faster than all other cuts. This is an important thing to consider when you are spectacularly hungry for ribs.

Where the baby’s back ends, the ribs begin, curving around the pork’s fat, flavorful belly to its breastbone. Ribs are fattier, with very little meat on top of their long, flat bones and lots of well-marbled meat between them. More marbling means more flavor, but it also means you have to wait a little longer for your ribs to be tender.

At the end of the ribs, where they meet the breastbone, is a fatty flap of meat resembling pork belly studded with small bits of cartilage known as the rib tip, and it is pristine when cut. she has enough time to blend into the stuff that dreams are made of. If you want to use ribs instead of baby back in this recipe, give them an additional 10 minutes on low, low heat, for tenderness that falls off the bone, do 20. Then move them from the side of direct heat. off the grill, apply the bourbon cherry sauce and get ready to have a good time.

St. Louis style ribs are ribs that have the short ribs removed, so you can use them interchangeably with baby backs in this recipe with no adjustments necessary. These rectangular grills are a great choice if you want the almost paramount experience of feasting on flavorful, fatty rib meat without the nerves.

And, remember, it’s OK to ravage one of these coasts as if we were, in fact, barbarians. After all, it’s summer.

Bourbon-Cherry Glazed Ribs

You can use baby back ribs, baby back ribs or St. Louis ribs in this recipe

(Peggy Cormary/Washington Post)

active time: 40 minutes | Total time: 2 hours, 40 minutes, plus overnight refrigeration

Serves: 4

This recipe calls for back ribs but can also be made with ribs or St. Louis ribs. These rib cuts, which come from the belly region of the pig, are flatter, fattier and tastier, but because of their marbling they take a little longer to cook; add at least 10 more minutes to the “low and slow” cooking time, then use visual cues to determine when they’re tender enough to move to direct heat. This recipe will also yield more glaze than you’ll likely need for two racks of ribs; you can serve it on the side or use it to glaze poultry the next time you grill.

Get ahead: Ribs should be scrubbed and refrigerated for at least 12 hours or up to 2 days before cooking.

Storage Notes: Refrigerate ribs for up to 3 days. Leftover frosting can be refrigerated for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 1 year.

Remarks: To prepare your gas grill for indirect heat grilling: cover and preheat with all burners on high until it reaches 150°C. When you’re ready to cook, if you’re using a three-burner grill, turn off the middle burner and reduce the heat on the other burners to medium-high. Many two-burner grills are set up for indirect heat, so you can simply place food in the center of the cooking grate. Heat one burner to medium-high and leave the other off.

If you are using a charcoal barbecue: fill a firelighter with charcoal, light it and, when the coals are burnt, arrange them on each side of the pan, leaving an empty space in the middle. If your grill is too small to allow for an empty spot, push embers to one side, leaving the other side empty. Pour enough water into the pan so that it rises at least 2½ cm up the side. Replace the cooking grate and place an oven or grill thermometer on it. Cover the grill and preheat over medium-low heat, about 150°C. For a medium-low heat, you should be able to hold your hand about 6 inches above the embers for about 8 seconds.

If using a charcoal barbecue, the recipe may take about 15 minutes longer.

Oven method: these ribs can also be roasted slowly for 1h30 to 2 hours in an oven preheated to 150°C as well. To caramelize the glaze, at the end, raise the rack about 15 cm from the grill and grill for about 3 minutes, watching carefully so that the glaze does not burn.

Ingredients:

For the ribs:

2 squares (1.4 kg total) ribs

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

50g packed light brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons smoked paprika, sweet or hot

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon fine salt

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

For the icing:

One bag (450 g) of frozen cherries

120ml bourbon

60ml pomegranate molasses

Finely grated zest of 1 orange

½ teaspoon ground cloves

½ teaspoon fine salt

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Method:

Remove the silver membrane from the back of the ribs by slipping a butter knife under the skin in the midsection, and lifting and loosening until you can grab a portion with a towel, so you can d first tear one side, then the other.

Dry the ribs well and brush each with 1 tablespoon mustard.

Salt the ribs: in a small bowl, combine the sugar, cumin, paprika, garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper. Cover the ribs on both sides with the dry rub. Place in an airtight container or wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 12 hours and or up to 2 days.

Grill the ribs: Take the ribs out of the fridge and let come to room temperature for about 1 hour before grilling.

Prepare barbecue for indirect heat (see notes above). Place a heatproof or aluminum pan next to the embers on the coldest side of the grill. Pour enough water into the pan so that it rises at least 2½ cm up the side. Place the grate over the pan and embers and place the ribs on the pan bone side down. Close the BBQ and adjust the heat to maintain a temperature of around 150C. Cook for 2 to 2.5 hours or until the meat begins to pull away from the bone.

Make the glaze: While the ribs are grilling, in a 1.9 L saucepan over medium heat, combine the cherries, bourbon, molasses, orange zest, cloves, salt and the pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, and cook until the cherries begin to soften, 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and, using an immersion blender, puree the frosting until smooth (alternatively, you can pour the mixture into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth ). Return pan to medium-low heat and continue cooking, uncovered, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and reserve; you should have about 2 cups of frosting (you will need about 1 cup for the frosting).

Have a cutting board and serving platter handy.

Brush the ribs with the glaze and slide them to the direct heat side of the grill. Cook, uncovered, for about 5 minutes, then brush the ribs with more glaze and turn them over so they are meat-side down (if you have flare-ups, move the ribs slightly to the side so they don’t not directly above an open flame). Continue cooking, uncovered, until the sauce begins to caramelize, 5 to 10 minutes.

Using tongs, transfer the ribs to a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut between the bones. Place ribs on a serving platter, brush with glaze and let rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Nutritional information per serving (4 ribs, ¼ cup glaze) | Calories: 825; total fat: 40 g; saturated fat: 8g; cholesterol: 252mg; sodium: 1134mg; carbohydrates: 27g; dietary fibre: 2g; sugar: 26g; protein: 67g.

An extreme plan to stop fentanyl overdose deaths in New Jersey https://esurfboardracks.com/an-extreme-plan-to-stop-fentanyl-overdose-deaths-in-new-jersey/ Mon, 25 Jul 2022 10:29:11 +0000 https://esurfboardracks.com/an-extreme-plan-to-stop-fentanyl-overdose-deaths-in-new-jersey/ Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid used by doctors to treat severe and advanced cancer pain.

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid used by doctors to treat severe and advanced cancer pain.

It is also used by drug dealers and cartels to increase the effects of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and every other substance you can think of, and it causes a dramatic increase in opioid overdose deaths in New Jersey and across the country. .

State Sen. Paul Sarlo, D-Bergen, is pushing a plan to quell the large amount of fentanyl that is pouring into the Garden State.

“A lot of these drug dealers are mixing marijuana and other drugs with fentanyl so the user doesn’t realize it, but they’re getting fentanyl, I want to make it a first degree felony, this n It’s not like selling someone marijuana,” he said.

A serious repression

Sarlo is sponsoring legislation (no bill number yet) that would make selling, possessing or manufacturing more than 10 grams of fentanyl a first-degree felony, punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $200.00.

His measure also states that selling or possessing any amount of fentanyl up to 10 grams would be a second-degree felony, punishable by 5 to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $150,000.

Man in prison hands behind steel cage bars. criminal offender locked in jail.

Rattankun Thongbun

He said it may sound harsh but “it’s such a volatile and deadly drug that those who inject or inhale fentanyl run the risk of immediate death.”

Fentanyl is dangerous even to the touch because it can be absorbed through the skin.

“It’s very deadly, it’s not about drug addiction, it’s about killing someone, no different from pulling out a gun and shooting someone,” he said.

Susan Gibson, the special agent in charge of the New Jersey Drug Enforcement Agency, has warned Garden State residents that as little as 2 milligrams of fentanyl mixed into a drug can literally kill you in seconds.

She said the DEA had now started investigating drug overdose deaths and if they were caused by ingesting fentanyl, the case would not be treated as accidental but as a homicide.

“Those pushing fentanyl on the street is almost like a license to literally kill,” Sarlo said.

He said the Bergen County District Attorney’s Office recently arrested a man in possession of 15 pounds of fentanyl, enough to produce about 3.5 million lethal doses.

More than 3,000 people died of drug overdoses in 2021 in New Jersey, according to the state medical examiner, and law enforcement officials have warned the total could climb further this year.

Yacht Club the jewel in the crown of many amenities offered at Kelowna’s waterfront project

Content of the article

While stunning 180-degree views of Lake Okanagan is a good reason to buy a home in Mission Group’s Aqua Waterfront Village in Kelowna, builder Jon Friesen says well-heeled buyers get more than just a simple view. They create a “legacy”.

Content of the article

“We see this as an opportunity to create lasting memories with your family,” says Friesen, CEO of Mission Group. “The vast majority (of buyers) are interested in building legacies or memories, something to leave behind, an experience with family, not just ROI (return on investment).”

Mission Group believed in its legacy theme so much that it even hired a Brazil-based company to create a narrative-style short film in which a fictional grandfather prepares to welcome his children and grandchildren to his new house, with stunningly realistic video renderings of a yet-to-be-built Aqua and the surrounding town.

Final-stage homes at Aqua Waterfront Village range from 535 to 2,705 square feet.

Those inclined to dismiss Friesen’s point as a mere sales pitch might consider that he is preparing to follow that pitch in his own life. He and his wife currently live in a stunning, modern, multi-thousand-square-foot home overlooking another shore of Okanagan Lake. But they plan to move into a much smaller house in Aqua when it’s finished in about three years.

Friesen says sales for the final phase of two planned community towers in Kelowna’s Lower Mission district are dramatically different from the first phase last year, which saw 154 homes sell quickly. This phase, zoned for overnight rentals, attracted a much larger percentage of investors.

Aqua's residences feature many luxurious extras, including oversized windows and spacious balconies.

But with this latest phase, he says the percentage of investors is the smallest yet to invest in a Mission Group project.

“The highest demand comes from units that exceed $1 million, and it’s usually the reverse, with the highest demand for the less expensive suites.”

Situated on a 6.17 acre parcel, the Aqua site has 1.25 acres of sandy beachfront land easily accessible from the three towers that border the site.

And the list of on-site amenities for towers 2 and 3 is impressive: a large private outdoor pool, deck and hot tub on a fifth-level amenity podium, golf simulator and practice green, a two-story fitness center. , bike storage, paddle board racks, and a pet wash studio, among other features.

The houses have oversized windows, large spacious balconies and terraces and appliances, and finishes well suited to a luxury project.

But its crown jewel of amenities that truly sets Aqua above its competitors is its Aqua Boat Club. For a fee, the club offers owners a separate four-story building to house their own boat year-round and sheltered from the elements. Those without a boat have instant access to a shared pool of seven 24- and 25-foot-long surf boats powered by 300-400 horsepower inboard engines.

But unlike the typical launch location, club members escape the tedious process of also owning a truck and trailer. Instead, they simply board the boat while club staff use mini-tractors to gently and quickly guide the boat in and out of the water. Gold subscriptions, which allow access to a boat seven days a week at any time of the year, are currently priced at $15,000 per year, while Silver subscriptions, with reduced access on weekends, are set at $9,500 per year.

Beach life is not a new concept for Mission Group.

Twenty years ago, the company built a 57-unit waterfront project called Mission Shores, adjacent to the Aqua site. Craftsman-style wooden condos, with shake cladding and copper gutters, were snatched up primarily by Albertans, who valued proximity to the lake, the relatively mild Okanagan climate, and “close and go” convenience. of development.

But resort-style living is very different today, Friesen said.

Buyers are now more sophisticated, having been exposed to other luxury venues. They value and want the superiority of concrete construction and the rich array of amenities made possible by high-density development.

Asked if this shows Kelowna is “coming of age,” with prices now exceeding $4 million for Aqua’s most expensive offering, Friesen said, “c ‘is actually a bit late’, a fact he really appreciates.

“A coffee table. A square. No, rectangle. No, shaped like a…surfboard? His mind was whirling like a Breitling.

A harsh white sun broke through the blinds of the marketing department on Monday morning. A pair of executives sat comfortably on a Finnala© faux leather three-seat sectional sofa (available in black, tan sherpa; pull-out, $2,455).

Facing them is Rob Machado, former world number two in surfing and environmentalist, sipping coffee from his Kejserlig© mug (black, gray, clay; $4.99/pack of 2).

“Do you find the place OK, Rob?” »

“Yeah, I saw those bright blue and yellow flags out front. It’s cool that you support Ukraine.

The executives met their eyes and then returned to Machado.

“Hunger?” the executive asked as she handed a plate of Huvodroll© ($7.99/12) meatballs to Rob.

“I’m vegan.”

The executives knowingly winked at each other and stretched another arrangement of Varldsklok© vegetable hash balls across the glass table.

“What do you think of these? They’re durable!” exclaimed the executive.

“What does it mean?” Machado asked, raising an eyebrow.

The executives leaned forward.

“That’s why we brought you here, Rob. We dream of a new entirely sustainable line inspired by surfing: furniture, kitchen utensils, beach equipment. And we think you’re the perfect person for a collaboration. Full partners, IKEA, the WSL and you, from the forest to the ground.

Rob, drawing fingers to lips, questioned the proposal. “Ikea uses precious wood to make its products, doesn’t it? »

As one executive rubbed their hands in a nervous ball, the other replied, “Yeah, but it’s all sealed in plastic.”

“Oh.”

Seemingly relaxed, Rob slipped on his sandals and slid his toes through the plush Langsted© rug (low-pile, non-slippery; $49.99).

“We want to collaborate for the same reason Dockers partnered with Jon Rose’s Waves for Water. I mean, who doesn’t want – no, need – access to affordable pants in drought-stricken parts of the world? »

The other executive added: “We want to collaborate with you for the same reason Breitling nabbed Kelly for his intimate knowledge of watch movements.”

The room went silent as if chloroformed.

Dropping their smiles, the executives explained. “You see, Rob, our business is much more than disposable furniture. We care about the environment and those who live in it. Have you ever visited IKEA in San Diego?”

“Fenton Parkway?” Sure. And I’ve always dreamed of cruising north for a few hours to the Costa Mesa store in my converted van.

The executive started painting a picture of Rob. “When you walk into the IKEA in San Diego, you see people from all walks of life: old, young, rich, semi-rich. Everyone is there, of all colors, walking in perfect harmony, perpetually. it’s about multicultural sustainability for people and for the planet.

“You should open one in Kharkiv,” Rob said innocently.

The executive spoke straight into Rob’s eyes. “So far we have a few things in the works, but we’re stuck. For example, take a look at this.

Executives rolled out a prototype Kaseberga © beach blanket on the table, plain white.

“Now, Rob, we want something that screams ‘SURFBOARDING!’ Tell us: what should we do with this cover?”

Machado studied the fabric like a surgeon reading an x-ray, moving his eyes around the four corners of the terry cloth monolith.

“I’m thinking of the floral print.”

The executives pumped their fists in unison.

“YES! That’s exactly why we brought you here, Mr. Machado. Now keep the flow here. Keep rolling.

They made bicycle crank circles with their hands.

“What’s on your mind for the collection?”

Rob crossed his arms, looked up at the ceiling, then spoke slowly, carefully.

“A coffee table. A square. No, rectangle. No, shaped like a…surfboard? His mind was whirling like a Breitling.

“Oh, that’s beautiful, Rob,” one of the executives exclaimed. “Beautiful. A table that looks like a surfboard.

A drum roll and a table trumpet sounded from the executives. “Ladies and gentlemen, I offer you the Kaseberga© surfboard coffee table (bamboo, wire base, $99.99)!”

For the next four hours, the team pored over new Surf-Core Line designs. They sketched, they struggled, they questioned, pushing the boundaries of design, taste and ethics. Ultimately, each piece in the collection was determined to have a floral print. They also came up with the idea of ​​a charcoal barbecue, also with a floral print.

Rob, exhausted, fell back in his chair.

“It’s all great, guys. But is it sustainable?

Confused, the executives threw their palms up.

“We are past that. Everything comes from the trees we cut down and what can be, will be, wrapped in plastic.

“That’s not enough. I’m sorry.”

“Mr. Machado, what do you mean?

“You know, sustainable. Royalties in perpetuity.

The trio burst out laughing.

“Now, how about taking some plant hash balls and driving to Costa Mesa in this conversion pickup truck (Dodge, 1978, 7 mpg.).”

Royal Enfield X Wavelength

Louie LeProvost powers the six-speed Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. Maintaining gears meant the bespoke 2-1 escapement beefed up a 1960s baritone through the old, hazy pines of the Médoc Regional Nature Park. With the little BAAK speedo pointing towards the magic ton, the barber, surfer, motorcycle enthusiast and former military machine fitter, released the accelerator and pointed his bike, and his thoughts towards the Biarritz Wheels and Waves Festival. But before talking about the destination, we must talk about the trip. We have to talk about the Beach Hopper project.

The spark

In 2021 Wavelength and Royal Enfield traveled to the Drive-in Cinema for the Beach Hopper. 100 bikes came to cruise along the beautiful Cornish coast. This year, the Beach Hopper project set out to demonstrate how anyone, regardless of mechanical skill level, can easily modify their bike. A wide range of custom bolt-on options from various companies are available right out of the box.

We were given a fresh Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and a stack of partners provided everything from exhausts to board racks to turn the modern classic into a tarry, head-turning, ear-splitting surf mobile. We would build at the Spring Classic Festival and go to the annual Wheels and Waves Festival. Cornish-based Louie LeProvost, barbering in the Moto paddock at the Spring Classic with Uppercut Deluxe, was the obvious test rider.

A beautiful blank canvas.

building

The Interceptor 650 rode in Woolacombe, a retro roadster, to be transformed into a certified Beach Hopper as it left the Spring Classic.

After undoing the mounting bolts and carefully removing the exhaust, an S&S 2-into-1 exhaust was lined up and fitted with a little patience, a little sweat and a light tap with a rubber hammer. The throatier, meatier sound wasn’t just for the pines, on his journey from Cornwall to Biarritz and back, LeProvost received more compliments on the exhaust than on his beard and hair. No small achievement.

BAAK, the Lyon workshop for the creation of motorcycles and spare parts, provided a prototype of Surfboard Rack. Coming to market soon, construction was incredibly simple. After removing the front engine bolt, it was replaced with the front plank bracket and bolt. The left rear passenger footpeg was later replaced with the rear surfboard rack. After a quick squeeze, the black two-finned Beach Hopper fish slipped like an old biker’s hand into his favorite leather glove.

BAAK also helped streamline the cockpit with a small Daytona speedo. It is a plug-and-play solution where we have reconnected the BAAK wiring harness where the original was unplugged. It added a smooth, simple and retro feel to the dashboard.

The bike already looked very hot, but we wanted this Beach Hopper to be a real showstopper. Enter Image Design Custom, the UK’s leading and legendary custom paint and design house. The preparation for these geniuses was a piece of piss. The battery covers were easily removed to reveal a small tool pouch that Enfield supplies with everything you need to work on the bike. Within minutes the gas tank was removed, easily packed up and ready to paint. IDC did the rest.

All that remained was to attach the ingenious Wingman of the Road Goose tent to the back. It has a fully waterproof 420g ripstop canvas tent with wing/awning, high density foam mattress and built-in sleeping bag. With this bad boy, our fearless rider would always have comfortable, waterproof, instant swag to call home. All that was left to do was hit the road.

The trip

After a wet Wednesday in Plymouth to catch the ferry to Brittany, Louis dried off on the boat and soon encountered two other riders heading to the WAW. We’ll never know if it was the tattoos, the leather jackets or the handlebar mustaches that brought the trio together. On French soil, they leave for Quimper for a continental breakfast, then keep the sea to their right and head south. Louis made a detour to La Roche Sur Yon for dinner and an overnight stay with friends who live in the rural hinterland between La Rochelle and Poitier.

The next morning he opened the Beach Hopper to the ribbons of black tar that roamed the Renoir fields of green and yellow and reconnected with his new buddies on the ferry to Royan. A crossing of the Gironde estuary led to the ride through the Médoc regional natural park, and finally to a surf check at the Lacanau surf hub. There were waves, but the pull of the last stage to Biarritz and the Waves and Wheels was too strong.

The festival

Royal Enfield’s warm welcome, not to mention the prime rib, cold half-presses and crowd of like-minded surfers and motorbikers, meant it was a good choice. For over a decade, the festival has blended motorcycling, surfing, skateboarding, music, art and culture. The aim is to build on the past and use the know-how to live the present and talk about the future.

On Friday, Louie took part in a hike in the Pyrenees, and the incredible roads and mountain views saw Louis call it the best ride of his life. The fact that it ended with an epic lunch and sunset surf on the beaches south of Biarritz made it a pure to-do list.

After another surf on Saturday morning, the call went out to ride an hour north to Magescq to watch the El Rollo Dirt Track race. Here, everyone from pros to legendary old retirees raced 80-year-old Harleys at high speeds on a gnarly track. Not for the faint of heart or soft of the down. The final night was a celebration of the Beach Hopper project at the WAW village before Louis howled and retraced his steps through the French countryside to Roscoff and home.

The end of the road?

No, fine, Jose. Due to a mix of customs paperwork and supply chain issues (don’t you like taking back control), the final stages of the custom build couldn’t be completed before the ride. However, our friends at Bad Winners, the Parisian custom motorcycle workshop known for its bolt-on aftermarket kits, will be working on the front headlight, custom handlebars, rear storage and new seat to get the Beach Hopper ready for Cornwall this summer.

The Beach Hopper will keep rolling! This is just the start of something special. Readers, let us know where we should point it next…?

Do you remember the feeling you felt the first time you walked into a surf shop?

The smell of wax and fresh neoprene. The reflection of the boards that lined the shelves. Otherworldly surf beaming on a screen overhead and the telling story of a local luminary in the corner.

Since time immemorial, the surf shop has been the earthly centerpiece of our local communities. A place to get together, swap stories and glean information about the best local banks and the chance to score them tomorrow. Somewhere to take a close look at cutting-edge new gear and get advice from the wise but skeptical owner, who’s seen more wetsuit re-designs and leash innovations than you’ve had hot dinners.

Of course, the work of the surf shop has changed quite a bit over the past few decades. Now, many specialty retailers have also developed an online branch. But their role within the community remains substantially the same. In fact, as surfing explodes into an increasingly mainstream version of itself – where fast fashion behemoths like Primark feel bold enough to throw their hats into the wetsuit-making ring – the existence of grassroots surf shops, run by surfers and filled with independent, surfer-owned brands is more vital than ever.

This is just one of the reasons why specialists in high-quality hardware Manera have placed them at the heart of their business model. While a growing number of watersports brands have sought to eliminate stores entirely by selling directly to their customers, Manera has gone in the complete opposite direction – becoming the only major wet brand to sell solely through specialty retailers. selected. Why? It all depends on their principles.

See, Manera is a family business – originally created as the accessories arm of the hugely popular sailing sports brand F-One, founded by Raphaël and Sophie Salles in 1994. In 2012, the couple’s son, Julien Salles, came on board as brand manager, leading Manera’s first forays into the world of wetsuits. In the early days of the business, a small network of shops and salespeople was integral to its success, with the loyalty and trust developed over those years still going strong. “That’s why we’re here today,” says Julien, “so we decided to respect that and make sure a good store never goes away.”

One of the most important examples for him is Side Shore, a physical store located in the northwest of France. They have been selling F-One and Manera since the very beginning and for Julien they represent all the ways a store can be a pillar of the community. In addition to sharing their unparalleled knowledge of the region, they organize events, manage a repair service and encourage local succession through sponsorship.

Although the brand’s approach is designed to cater to industry partners like them, it also has significant benefits for the customer. As well as ensuring that the surf shops will always be there when you need them, it’s a great way to ensure product quality. Because, rather than hiding in the brand’s warehouse waiting for an online sale, each of Manera’s products is handled and endorsed by dozens of passionate water sports shop owners around the world, who of course don’t will stock only the best for their customers. . With every Manera wetsuit, along with maximum flex, X10D fleece and thermal protection, you are committed to keeping the surf culture alive.
