Body Glove teams with Ocean Beach Surf and Skate

The Body Glove crew including Cheyne Magnusson, Justin Quirk, Jenny Lane, Matt Patterson and Jenna Meistrell had a packed week of festivities with Ocean Beach Surf and Skate. We joined OBSS at the Ocean Beach street fair for their 7th Annual Skate Jam, one of the festival's largest attractions. There were thousands of people at the festival enjoying live music, the OBSS annual skateboard competition, hundreds of vendor booths, rides for kids and the beer garden. If you stopped by our tent you had to play the amazing game cornhole in order to win a Body Glove inflatable hand!

Next stop, The Pearl Hotel in Point Loma for a special screening of our film the Drop Zone Fiji. If you have never been to this hotel I would definitely recommend stopping by for one of their movie nights. We sat by the pool enjoying refreshments while watching the movie on the big screen. Below is Cheyne Magnusson with Ocean Beach Surf and Skate owner Rodger Caldwell and Director of Public Relations Lanette Jorgensen.

Strong Rock2Rock finish for Body Glove / Jimmy Miller Foundation FAMILY

LA County Lifeguard & JMMF key man, Anthony Vela, led the unlimited class with a 3H 52M finish time. 3 minutes later, Race Organizer George Loren came ashore; followed 2 minutes later by Matt Walls.

Matt Walls is a long time Body Glove team member currently selling men's swim/apparel category. Scott Daley, Body Gloves marketing Veep, skippered Matt's escort boat with son Jack acting as 1st mate. Matt and his sons are an integral part of the Jimmy Miller Surf Fiesta and ongoing Ocean Therapy projects.

"The Rock2Rock is notorious for challenging conditions. Waking up to low winds and a swell pushing toward the finish line was a huge relief," declared Walls, "I spent a lot of time in George Loren's rear view mirrors and really wanted to catch him. The pace we set from the start was pretty insane."

Hillary Kane, Body Glove's Business Development Veep, proudly participated on the first ever JMMF/Wounded Warrior relay team. The JMMF raised funds and awareness for the Jimmy Miller Foundation's work with the USMC Wounded Warrior BN West. The 6-member relay team (including Carly Rogers, Gene Boyer, Krystal Flanigan, Ryan Artuso & Ryan Allen) took turns on the board and were escorted on the crossing by Scott Alexander.

There is an indescribable bond that develops between and among the paddlers and crews. Family and friends lined the historic San Pedro shoreline to welcome paddlers as they hit the beach. It was a Father's Day celebration to remember.

The 22.12 mile Rock2Rock course begins at the Catalina Isthmus Pier and finishes at the Cabrillo Beach Bathhouse. Joe Bark established this race in 1997. It has evolved to be a rite of passage for all paddlers and serves as a qualifier for the 32 mile Catalina Classic in August.
