Team Rider Isaac Maquet whoopin’ it up on Christmas Eve

Celebrated team rider for Surf Monkey Fellowship, Isaac Maquet, knows how to have a good time.  Seen here with the Solana Beach Senior Surf Babes at an undisclosed location.   He also knows how to keep the press guessing at the whereabouts of his next appearance.

He’s always smooth with the ladies, even world-class shredders like Sally, Evelyn, Pat, Eleanor, and Wanda pictured here.  And you can’t blame him, or anyone for that matter, for getting just a little weak in the knees in the presence of someone like Longboard Laddie, in the photo below.

Welcome to Surf Monkey Fellowship Isaac.  Thanks for being our newest Team Rider, and thanks for letting us, the Surf Monkey Fellowship press corp, in to your personal circles.  Surf on Bro!

old town surf in san diego now part of the fellowship

Old Town Surf in the heart of San Diego’s oldest community, is pure cool.  This little surf haven occupies one of the few remaining original Wild West store fronts, and on the inside, the ceiling consists of hundreds of dangling skateboards, representing the whole history of skateboard design.

And we haven’t even mentioned the best part… THEY NOW CARRY THE SURF MONKEY!!!  Yeah, it just doesn’t get any cooler than that. 

Vanessa and her new monkeys offer visitors a warm welcome.

Right back at ya, Vanessa.  Welcome to the Fellowship.

the Del Mars release their new CD “Surf Monkey”

Uh huh, this rockin’ new CD from the Del Mars is called “Surf Monkey”.  That’s right, and it’s title track is all about, you guessed it, our favorite surf icon.   With lyrics like, “When waves have shape, he goes ape,” we here at Surf Monkey Fellowship knew we found a banana-trove of our kind of music. 

The Del Mars, headed by Johnny Del Mar, are a Bay Area surf band with that classic, groovin’ surf sound in the vein of Dick Dale and the Ventures. 

The legend of the Surf Monkey, as inscribed on the inside cover, begins with “Surf Monkey thinks really deep thoughts,” and goes on to inform us that, “In one interview he claims to be a Senegalese prince but in the unpublished biography Mr. Monkey by Hodad Gremmie his mother was slain by poachers in the Congo.  Sold to the San Diego Zoo he endured adolescence in captivity.”  As it turns out, some Australian pro surfers liberated him and took him to Windansea where he “Discovered his formidable surfboard riding skills.”  The editorial staff here at Surf Monkey Fellowship humbly admit to have learned a few things.  Thanks Johnny!

You can listen to some tracks from this CD as well as other stuff from the Del Mars at www.johnnydelmar.com, and probably order a CD too.  You won’t be sorry.
