Fresh Fest '17 – Final Season

Irma was a deadly storm, it will take years for Florida to recover; the Caribbean, even longer. So while folks in New England were enjoying classic late summer hurricane groundswell, hundreds of miles to the south others were struggling for their lives. Stoked? Well, up to a point. People are hurting and need help, and All the stoke and good vibrations don't amount to a hill of beans when there's looting in Tortola for example. Why does it take disasters for us to realize what's really important in life's journey?

It started off small enough Thursday evening.
