It Starts Here: The Dave Rastovich Profile - Surfer Magazine

Dave Rastovich looks like he's been washed ashore.

He is lying on the southern edge of the Australian landmass, on a beach, on a spongy bed of rotting seaweed, in repose, hands folded across his chest, legs crossed, a white floppy hat crowned by an eagle feather pulled down over his face, a swarm of sand flies forming a halo around his head, eyes closed, nostrils whistling, lights out, cooked.

As he likes to describe it, Rastovich is currently experiencing an "altered state."

How did he get here? Twenty-four hours earlier, Rastovich had flown halfway across Australia, driven overnight, only stopping to violently evacuate his stomach after contracting food poisoning from a truck stop, didn't sleep a wink because he has a rule about never falling asleep in the passenger seat as a courtesy to the driver, arrived at his destination at dawn, loaded a 9-foot surfboard into a tin skiff, motored out to an offshore reef, surfed some very big waves under a hot white sun, came in, stepped onto the shore by the boat ramp, looked down and discovered the universe had provided him with a perfectly-fine, natural mattress. It'd be rude not to, really.

Dave is channeling The Ancients. He's been fascinated for years by stories of Mike Doyle and Joey Cabell experiencing "papaya consciousness"--eating nothing but fruit for days to create a state of "oneness with the ocean" before embarking on a leisurely swim along the length of Kauai's Na Pali coast. After hours in the ocean, pickled and exhausted with the Na Pali skyline towering above them, they'd experience total immersion, delirium, and, eventually, a form of transcendence. "The old boys were gnarly," offers Rastovich. "They'd get into these altered states by just pushing themselves in the living world. I love the idea of marathon surfs, skipping sleep, skipping food. It changes your perception. The world around you is the same as it's been your whole life, but you're not. You see it in a whole new way."

Truth be told, Rastovich's current horizontal state has more to do with sleep deprivation caused by his baby boy then his surf mission. In fact, Rastovich's whole life these days could be considered an altered state if you contrast it against his freewheeling days when he traveled the world chasing waves, rogue whalers and environmental ideals. Rastovich and his partner, Lauren Hill had their first child, Minoa, last year, and little "Minnow" arrived at a transitional time for his father.

Rastovich had recently jumped ship from long-time surf sponsor Billabong and signed with environmental crusader, Patagonia. As part of the process, he flew to Ventura to meet with Patagonia founder, Yvon Chouinard. They knew each other well despite never having met. They hit it off. They're both figureheads of the environmental movement, they're both friends with George Greenough, and they both occasionally walk around looking homeless. Chouinard grizzled his disapproval of the whole system of sponsored athletes from whence Rastovich had just come. "Performing monkeys," was the term used, I think. Rastovich's program when he eventually made the jump would be very different. He took the title of "Global Surf Activist," although he had no idea what that actually meant and nobody in the company did either. He was the first.

For the first year of his new global gig, he wasn't very global. Minnow had a bit to do with it, but Rastovich also had a run of injuries. After years of crusading on behalf of the ocean, the ocean seemingly turned on him. It started when he stepped on a stingray and was barbed through the foot. That was two months out of the water. He then got the rail of his board to the face and broke his jaw--twice. That was six weeks each time.

All of this kept him close to home, which isn't a bad thing when you live where he does. Rastovich, Lauren and Minnow live on a sylvan parcel of Broken Head hinterland, with Greenough and Chris...

Baseball team's name makes a stink, takes off like a rocket - 680 News

MADISON, Ala. – A new Alabama minor league baseball team’s name is taking off like a rocket after making a big stink.

Meet the Madison-based Rocket City Trash Pandas.

Al.com reports the team held an event Saturday to unveil their new logo and start merchandise sales. They will begin playing in 2020.

“The name has gone viral,” said managing partner Ralph Nelson. Nelson told the newspaper they had already received merchandise requests from 30 countries around the world.

The team’s logo features a racoon lifting off in a trash-can like rocket.

A team press release said official team colours included “Space Black, Rocket Red, Sky Blue and Trashcan Gray.”

A California-based marketing firm helped developed the concept, which pays homage to the region’s aerospace industry. And trash pandas.

New boat dealership opens near Caesar Creek Lake - Dayton Daily News

A new boat dealership with a well-known family name in southwest Ohio has opened in Waynesville, just one-mile from Caesar Creek Lake.

Taylor’s South Shore Marina has relocated its dealership from its location near Cowan Lake to 6850 Corwin Ave. in Waynesvlle. The dealership is housed in a new 16,000-square-foot building with ample space outside for new and used boats.

According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, $37 billion was spent in the U.S. last year on boats and boating supplies, an increase of $1 million from 2016. That’s up from $27 billion in 2010.

South Shore Marina was founded in 1968 on the banks of Cowan Lake at Cowan Lake State Park. It has been under control of the Taylor Family since 1985. Chad’s father, Tom Taylor, started at South Shore Marina at the age of 17.

Tom Taylor is still a master mechanic at the dealership. The business employs 10 people, including four certified motor mechanics. Taylor said the business will employ 15 during the season.

The dealership is located near the 2,300-acre Caesar Creek Lake, a popular lake for boaters and fishermen between Cincinnati and Dayton.

“The location offers us an unique market and an opportunity to service the needs of customers in this part of the state,” Taylor said. “We’re excited about the location.”

The publication Boating Industry named Taylor’s South Shore Marina one of the Top 100 dealerships in the United States for their sales and customer experience.

Employees at the dealership have been busy in the past month. They recently had a display at the Cincinnati boat show and Feb. 9 through Feb. 11 they will be at the Columbus boat show.

“We’re pretty well-known throughout the state. People have confidence in our work,” Taylor said.

Even though the dealership is located west of Caesar Creek Lake, Taylor kept the South Shore name.
