Rare hometown event this coming weekend...


Yeah, that's what's up! This weekend Fukitt Clothing will be attending the Jersey Shore Music Festival in our hometown and birthplace of Fukitt, Seaside Heights, NJ!!! If you don't know where this is, remember when Hurricane Sandy hit? Remember seeing pictures of the roller coaster that fell into the ocean? Yup, that's it! That's Seaside and that WAS our roller coaster! But since Sandy (and subsequently a fire) wiped us out, we have built ourselves back to a summer vacation destination spot, home to some of the most beautiful beaches around, a place we all call "home". 

We rarely get a chance to spend a lot of time here anymore because we are travelling around with Fukitt spreading the word. But every now and then, a rare opportunity presents itself and we're jumping at the opportunity to take it. Saturday and Sunday we will be set up right on the boards, the North side of the boards that is, popping up a tent, and selling our gear like old times. 12-7 pm Saturday and Sunday we will be re-spreading the word about Fukitt and our cause to young and old, new to Fukitt and friends who have been supporting us for years.  Here's a picture of some of those great friends who have always been there.

I can't wait to spend some real time on the boards again, walking on the white beach sand, dipping my toes in the chilly Atlantic, having a funnel cake and some cotton candy and seeing all of our friends throughout the day. We are so excited for this weekend, in that these are our grass roots, our starting point, where it all really began. We've come so far from those days, but sometimes it's nice to be back doing what we always did, the way we always did it. We will never forget where we came from or who we are...

Thank you Jersey Shore...home IS where the heart is, and ours is right here...
