SALT specializes in well-crafted, simple surfboards. Made for the New York City surfer.
SALT is the product of a collaboration between two surfers, launched in 2011. Co-founders Tyler Wolff and Nabil Samadani, come from very different surfing backgrounds outside of New York. Hailing from Hawaii and California, respectively, both were stoked to discover a thriving surf scene in New York City.
The two partnered up with Mauricio Avila, an established shaper based in California, and began working on a line of surfboards to compliment the New York City surfer, in hopes of delivering quality, progressively-shaped boards, at affordable prices. Currently, Tyler and Nabil are enjoying being poor New Yorkers, always trying to surf more and work less.
I'm at work on my first book, a collection of linked short stories that follows a community of expatriates living on the southern coast of Spain.
I care about stuff. Like curing type 1 diabetes. And marriage equality. And rights for immigrants. And public radio. And espanol. And Frank O'Hara and Jennifer Egan and Federico Garcia Lorca and Tony Kushner. You know, cool stuff.
I make postcards that are also stories.
Sometimes I read stories and poems out loud.
Sometimes I go to conferences.
You can find my short stories, essays, poems and flash fictio in a variety of places in print and online. If you Google really hard, you might find the two short radio pieces I produced on a badass NPR affiliate in San Francisco.
This is where you can go to find out who I am.
