The DNA of Dawn Patrol resides in the cold ocean swells, which conjure power waiting to harnessed by a man and his board. Paddle out, and enter the mighty, untamed oceanic teeth.

And within these elemental marine ingredients, there is also a power most surfers are drawn to. Robust 3-chord bursts of pure energy known as Punk Rock. The sonic landscape fitting for entry into the swells of Dawn Patrol.

Today we paddled out in the spirit of 80s Punk Rock. YHC wearing merch from a 1989 Dinosaur Jr. show at the Brewery in Raleigh, and the PAX in tow, ready for what the surf had to offer.

Let’s paddle.

Moleskin:

Thanks to the PAX for indulging me on the punk rock tour. Costco started into a John Cougar song, which was forbidden fare for a punk rock workout. That said, always enjoy his jukebox antics. So no harm!

Nice work, men. Many burpees = a good Thursday in the gloom.

COT:

Prayers for all men venturing out for The Mule Saturday.

Master Builder offered us to the care of our good Father.
