Martinique January 2016 | Martinique travel tip blog

Norwegian Airlines is now flying non-stop from Logan Airport in Boston to Fort De France Martinique, so we decided to check it out!  Flights were very inexpensive, but you get nothing with the cheap fare, no bags, no food, not even a glass of water. We packed very light -we carried on our ebag tls Mother lode Weekender Convertable ) I can’t say enough good about this bag, but thats a story for another day!) – it’s only a 4.5 hr flight, so pack some snacks in your carry on or pay for snacks on the plane (with your credit card of course! no cash accepted)

Travel Blog |Travel Tips | Our Travel Experiences

While we are a Tattoo Surf and Skate shop, we have, are and will be doing quite a bit of traveling.  We are planning some changes to our blog.  We will be incorporating some travel blog material to our site including reccomendations, photos and tips for travel and places we have traveled to.  Basically documenting the good, the bad and the ugly of our travels.  We’re constantly asked about the places we travel to and we’d like to share our experiences with the world.  Don’t worry, we’ll still be posting about rad tattoos, guest tattoo artists, local events and local surfing as well!!

stay tuned ~WnP


Rincon Puerto Rico | Boston Surf Shop

We made a quick jaunt down to Rincon, P.R. from Boston this past weekend to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary.  We flew into San Juan, had our ritual lunch at Mi Casita and then headed out to La8 Surf Shop.  As usual Peter at La8 took really good care of us, i highly recommend checking out this shop if your in San Juan, even if you don’t surf you can pick up a pair of reefs, some board shorts, a rash guard or even some shades!

Next we were on our way down rt2 to Rincon, We made a sunset stop in Aguadilla to check out Surfers Beach, then back on the road to our final destination Hotel Villa Confresi.  Nice hotel RIGHT on the beach, with a lively bar and pool.

Surfed some waist + waves at Marias and Domes.  When we were done at Marias we picked up some artwork from a local artist IKE (pronounced e-kay)  ike is usually posted up right at the entrance to marias where the road splits and you can continue down to domes or head up the hill.

We had a great lechon plate at el Fogon de la Curva, it’s a little ways outside rincon on rt115 in Anasco.  Great food, great views and run by a very nice family…another highly recomended stop in the Rincon area

We survived the great blizzard of 2013 | Boston Blizzard

Well, we survived/ate our way through the great blizzard of 2013.  We broke out our shovels and forks, piled the snow and stuffed our faces.  We surfed some big icy waves when we could finally get on the road.  So we’re back to regular operating hours and regular eating practices (the 3 day long eating binge is over!)   Here are a few pics from the storm – mostly from our neighborhood because we couldn’t get out!!  but hey our hometown made the front page of the new york times
