This four piece set has been best-of-friends since grade school in the 70s & 80s – much of our time together then centered around the tape deck and what was playing in it while we otherwise rode our BMX bikes, motos and generally punked out. We mostly existed on the fringe of the social sphere by virtue of our shared interests, which included kick-ass punk and rock bands ranging from The Clash, Bad Brains, Ramones, Fugazi, and The Replacements to The Jam, Blonde, The Police, The Cure and The English Beat…(more/others?). Meanwhile, Red Zone started several bands on his own while the rest of us spun-off into other life shenanigans through our 20s and 30s – all while still meeting up to surf-the-dirt on occasion and share and enjoy new-found music.
Then, one day out on a mountain bike ride (shred ‘in hard of course!) we thought why don’t we meld our collective passions and create a band – shazam… Dirt Surfers! Since then, Kidd Skidd, Slick-E-Boom and Endo have managed to keep Red Zone intrigued in fits and starts – and now six years later, we continue to be driven by the same energy that brought us together 30 years ago – living for the love of music, dirt surfing and generally pushing the comfort level on life to not only enrich ourselves, but hopefully those that we come in contact with along the way – or even better… along the trail! Here’s to all you Dirt-ers out there!
