Fells Point Fun Festival

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Well, how convenient! This weekend, October 2nd and 3rd, is the 44th Annual Fells Point Fun Festival! This family-friendly outdoor street festival, featuring 100+ arts and crafts vendors, 250+ retailers, 5 music stages, 40+ food vendors, and, of course, your favorite surf shop, is the perfect place to spend a day or two outdoors eating, drinking, and being merry! We hear the weather is going to be awesome, and we couldn’t be more pumped. Our whole crew will be set up outside of the shop, so make sure you stop by, say hi, and hang out for a while! We’ll have our usual wares outside (not to mention all our awesome new fall merchandise inside), plus a few surprises you’ll just have to come downtown to check out. Although if you’re our fan on Facebook, you may get a sneak peak later this week…

Ever heard of Pyrography?  Walker Babington, a former local artist now based in San Francisco, has been experimenting with this technique of creating pictures on wood through a burning process for years. Using found objects like shutters and wood panels as the base for his larger-than-life portraits, he creates haunting portraits through a variety of burning methods, including a blow torch and magnifying glass. He also experiments with other non-traditional techniques and media including grip tape, candle wax, and scratched wood. Most recently he installed a 480 square ft. mural in Bangalore, India at a place called Jaaga. Seriously, How cool is this stuff?

Kelly Slater Wins!

ASP

Kelly Slater, nine-time ASP World Champion, won the 2010 Hurley Pro at Trestles, the 6th stop on the 2010 ASP World Tour, on Saturday. This win pushes Slater, 38, into the ratings’ lead for what could be a record 10th ASP World Title.  Lucky for him, he caught two big breaks; one, thanks to a new double-elimination rule, he got a second chance after a Round 4 stumble against Owen Wright; and two, his Round 5 opponent Chris Davidson was a no-show due to illness, giving Slater a free pass to the Quarterfinals. In the Quarterfinals, he took out Wright, went on to beat Mick Fanning in the Semis, and ultimately took the win against Bede Dubridge in the Finals. Now the pressure’s on; with four contests to go, can he win an unprecedented 10th ASP World Title?

Next up: Quiksilver Pro France starting this Saturday, September 25th.

It’s important to know what’s new this fall season but an even easier way to jazz up an outfit is to accessorize! Here are a few suggestions for this fall to add to any outfit to shake things up!

Metallic Bag- Matches basically with any outfit, can be used as a neutral color

Patterned Flats- Livens up any look especially jeans!

Shades with Color- Can’t go wrong with Black or Brown sunglasses but just a bit of color makes a statement!

Unique Earrings- Jewelry can be found in any store, new or vintage, preppy or punk, but adds just a little something to any outfit for any occasion

 

 

Roxy Remember When Bag in Bronze, Smith Chemist Shades in Smoke Teal, Unique Earrings, Roxy Piccolo Flats in Purple

Strap on your seatbelts Baltimore! It’s going to be a fast ride!
