The last link to the "Original Montauk". Gone.
Winter in Montauk gets pretty black and white but some days can bring out a lot of beautiful colors, too.
Smokey mornings. Watching and making the call.

Sleigh rides with Mikey Detemple.
Chris Matzen locked in. He got about 20 more this day.
This is usually the most populated beach on the east end of Long Island. But in the winter we get to enjoy Montauk for all the real reasons it's great. Mikey Detemple coming in.
One of my favorite views from home. Pictured are the "jetty grinders" checking the waves in the distance.

NY hellmen Dylan Stott and Kurt Rist were nice enough to take me in and show me around Ireland. Those guys are on another level over there. So Gnarly. Heres Dylan getting some GoPro footy for one of his epic movies he produced.
Duryea's Dock. This dock was one of the last structures from the original town of Montauk. It has been recently sold and "fixed". Austin Eckardt stepping back in time.
Recent shot of Ditch Plains in Montauk during Hurricane Cristobal. We got some really good waves that swell.
I remember this day vividly. I showed up alone to this spot and there wasn't a footprint anywhere - just fresh snow cover and perfect peeling waves everywhere. This was one of the most beautiful days I can remember at home.
Steamrollers trooping their way to the lighthouse.
You can't take a bad photo in Ireland. That's all i'm going to say.
