Donavon Frankenreiter, an unique style in both Music and Surf

   Can someone have such a wonderful life? Donavon Frankenreiter is a Musician and FreeSurfer. From is own words “Today can I write a song? Today can I get barreled? It's always exciting"

   I admire Donavon Frankenreiter a lot because of the way he talks and expresses is love about Life, Music and Surf. He is an old friend of the Musician and Surfer Jack Johnson and sometimes they play together. Let me show you a great song of him, "On My Mind":

   His first album "Donavon Frankenreiter" was released in April 2004 in Australia due to his high popularity there, both from being a professional surfer and playing in Jack Johnson concerts. Cool songs from the first album include "Free", "It Don't Matter" and "Make You Mine".

   Since then, he has been releasing very good albums and songs, with an acoustic background and great mood ;). My recommended songs are "Girl Like You", "Beautiful Day", "Move By Yourself", "Wondering Where The Lions Are", "Your Heart" and "Keeping Me Away From You".

   Let me show you another great song, "What'cha Know About":

    A great YouTube video of Donavon Frankenreiter, Jack Johnson and G.Love playing together, it is just awesome:

   Donavon Frankenreiter is a very good Free Surfer and has an amazing and unmistakable Surf Style. Check this 2 awesome videos about him. In the first video, as well as seeing the surf skills of Donavon, you can also hear his song "Hold On". The second video displays his "I surf because..." video from Billabong and it is just inspiring. ;)


   To finish, let me show you some of Donavon Frankenreiter photos:
