When Donavon Frankenreiter was 10 years old, he got his first surfboard. Six years later, he picked up his first guitar. It was the beginning of a wildly creative journey: His improvisational twin obsessions have carried him around the globe and into his fans’ hearts. After Frankenreiter’s release of his fourth album, Glow, in fall 2010, the 37-year-old singer/songwriter/pro surfer admits he still thrives on simply taking the plunge. “We don’t have a set show, if we did, I would go crazy,” he says. “You never know what’s going to happen. I love that element of surprise with music and surfing – you never catch the same wave twice.”
