BY THE WATER

“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.” -Thomas Merton

By the water is a point of view, an undefined boundary between inside and outside, between submerged and emerged. The space in which the surfboard moves, not completely in the water, not totally free in the air; an area dominated by balance and lightness, where time is marked by the rhythm of the waves.

With a diverse and eclectic background, Shawn has walked the path of a competitive surfer, Hare Krsna monk, action sports industry player in NYC, DIY theology and religions major, and a touring punk rock musician. Now a father and self-proclaimed seeker of the “soul” of surfing, Shawn enjoys sessions with friends at uncrowded peaks along his home state’s shoreline and writing about his surf related experiences.
