Welcome to the first edition of ‘Zen. Lax. Lacrosse.’, which is a vegged-up version of Zen, Lacrosse and the Art of Stringing.

We’re on the road! Day one of our trip to California and this is what we’ve been up too, w/ video.
Well, it seems as if traveling across the country on the open road is coming to fruition; all thanks to everyone! If you’ve kept up a little bit on my stringing tour, you’ll know that I had to fly around this spring to all the locations where I held my stringing workshops, due to not […]
