Donavon Frankenreiter's Beach Playlist

The surfer-turned-artist downloads his top tunes for the unofficial start of summer this weekend.

Donavon Frankenreiter knows beach jams. The former pro-surfer (evidence above) and current singer, guitarist and songwriter lives in Kauai, Hawaii and released his fifth album, Start Livin' earlier this year. Since he captures the chill beauty of the beach in his own folksy music, we asked Frankenreiter to create his perfect soundtrack for a day of waves.
