We’re big fans of Donavon Frankenreiter here on the Razz — mainly because he’s got a kick-back, relax, crack open a Corona-type vibe that’s reminiscent of Jack Johnson. Actually, the comparison is appropriate since these two are good friends and surfers — with Donovan having rented a home from Johnson’s parents for a time in Hawaii.

Anyways, we’re also happy to spotlight him here because of the work he does on behalf of organizations like the Surfrider Foundation and Surf Aid. In a recent interview, he expressed he stressed the importance of having sponsors that give back to the environment. “If they are a surfing company first,” he said, “Then wherever we are able to give back to the environment, we should do so.”

We’ve got two copies of his latest album to drop called “Pass It Around” — which one reviewer on Amazon called a “testament to Frankenreiter’s continuing evolution as an artist.” Groovy. Want to win one? Just leave a comment below telling us your favorite full album to chill to. Complete rules and giveaway details for this contest are available here. Good luck!

    ALO’s ‘Fly Between Falls.’ Every song takes you on a mini-trip throughout the journey of the album.

    On and On by Jack Johnson, simply the best.

    Full album? Oooh, that’s tough … maybe G Love Philidelphonic?

    I agree with Jack’s On and On. It’s a perfect chill album. The cd from G Love’s A Year and a Night is a super close second for me too.
