In late 2000 Jeff Kay moved his sporadically-published humor zine to that newfangled wonderland known as the Internet, and began documenting his daily adventures in the suburbs.
Within a year the rough and raucous West Virginia Surf Report had gained a sizable following, and readers returned again and again to catch up with Jeff's latest stories and R-rated rants about Pennsylvania drivers (the worst in the world?), racist barbers, hygienically-challenged Ukrainians, his in-laws (Sunshine & Mumbles), and a thousand other tiny things that captured his attention or got under his skin.
With this first edition of the Surf Report Archives series you'll re-live that first year, and share the culture shock that Jeff and his wife Toney experienced after moving their young family from southern California to northeastern Pennsylvania.
And you'll discover -- again or for the first time -- why The West Virginia Surf Report remains one of the most beloved personal blogs of them all.
About the Author
Throughout the '80s and '90s he published a humor zine called The West Virginia Surf Report!, and moved it to the internet in late 2000. That website became a popular destination for folks whose own switch had been flipped along the way. It remains active today.
In 2011 his first novel, Crossroads Road, was published. Many people loved it, while others said it offered no redeeming social value. Just like they used to say about MAD!
Jeff Kay lives in Clarks Summit, PA, with his wife Toney, their two teenage sons, and a fantastic border collie named Andy.
