Boys of Summer #1

Days 'till Memorial Day: 19

Days 'till A Little Light Magic: 20

Days 'till the Summer Solstice: 46

No summer beach is complete without a surfer dude!

Of course, the Jersey Shore isn't exactly Hawaii or California in the wave department, but we still get our surfer die-hards out there in the surf.

Always a welcome addition to the summer ambiance...

"Boys of Summer", okay why do these guys only show up on the beach?! Where are they in Kansas......?
Would love an opportunity to win and I'm all about counting down to summer, especially if the guys in Kansas start dressing like this pic!!!

Uh, afraid I prefer to leave more to the imagination. A little old fashioned I know, but I have a pretty good imagination. Have a good summer.

Being born and raised in New Jersey summer was always a time of pleasant refection when admiring the guys at the shore.

My mind always goes wandering off on odd tracks.

I know it doesn't matter but I wonder if the guy can actually Surf !

A little rough water and you wouldn't have to imagine anything.
Is this an ad for the surfboard? Got my attention....

Oh yeah, summer and surfer boys, cruising around listening to oldies playing all those surfer songs I listened to growing up. I'd watch them out surfing late at night when I visited Hawaii, too chicken to try myself though.

I've gotten to the age where I look at a guy like that and think "young-enough-to-be-my-son" rather than "I-want-him!" !! LOL

LOL@Joy's comment. He's HOT but I prefer board shorts riding low on a guy instead of briefs/speedo's. But, look at those ABS!! Can't wait for the release of A Little Light Magic.

Hey, just because some of us are old enough to be their mama's doesn't mean we can't look and admire. :)

Being on the coast I love those surfer boys! You could always tell it was summer when the wetsuits disappear, but hey even wetsuits aren't bad things :)

Hey, I'm in Bali at the moment and let me tell you that I haven't seen a single surfer boy worth ogling! That picture just saved me from disappointment! o:) Tamsyn

jersey shore with lots of sand and sun as far as the eye can see (but the rundown shacks and commercialism also ruin it) you need a little bit of magic to see pass to the true beauty of nature i was once a guest here a present from a wannabe beau i pretended to be a pampered princess for the too short visit every summer i remember the magic of the shore

I have ALWAYS wanted to learn to surf! Think he's giving lessons? A Little Light Magic sounds like a wonderful read!

Wish I lived close to the beach, so I could watch the guys. Going to the local pool isn't the same.

Surfer dudes on my stretch of the Pacific have to wear wetsuits to keep from freezing.

Wow - just the cover of the book makes me want to grab my sunscreen. The book sounds great, too!

I like a swimsuit to have just a tad more coverage - but that doesn't stop me from looking and enjoying what I'm seeing. I grew up in California, but our surfer dudes didn't dress like that!

Very nice picture. (fanning self here) I love summer time the best too. I try not to complain about the heat in in kansas because I get really sick of the cold and snow we get here. I would love to live on the coast, preferably the gulf coast (Pensacola)

I've just got one thing to say, can surfer dude come to my house and play.
