Jared Mell went to school on the sand in Newport Beach. Literally. Staring at the sea and coloring. Since those days of hand ball on the sand, he’s developed into the kind of longboarder you want to stare at. One of those guys who moves spastic and poetic at once.
And on this gloomy little morning in Newport we tossed our Off Beat gamut of questions at him and ended up touring the harbor in a boat. Spontaneity!
