Jill Vedder has uploaded a new photo of her husband, legendary Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, walking at the beach with his board. Unfortunately for female fans, Vedder’s shirt is on, as it is chilly in January.
Vedder is a surfing and stand up paddle boarding enthusiast. He discusses his passions in a 2011 Surfline interview.
“I take the underwater iPod thing and go out on long stand-up paddles on my own. I could paddle for like two hours if I had music, rather than 40 minutes. I go out on the Puget Sound where there are no waves; it’s a little like hiking on the water.
I had never surfed with music until a few years ago and the first wave I caught, I can definitively state that it was such a powerful thing that it was like almost hearing music for the first time.”
“I was listening to a Neil Finn live record; it wasn’t until my third session that I had a wipeout. It was during a drum solo, and I was in the little mini-washing machine. The waves weren’t too big, so the headphones stayed in as I was getting tumbled to the drum solo. Ah, a fond memory.”
