11 Ways To Define A Good Life With Eric Geiselman

A look through the lens of Lark.

Words by Jack Mutschler

North Florida is one hell of a place. It’s a sunburnt coalition of fishermen/women, surfers (wave permitting), and other unmentionable archetypes. After living in Jacksonville for the last five years, I can confirm that all the stuff you see on the news about the infamous “Florida Man” is true.

In the lower half of North Florida lies a little town by the name of New Smyrna Beach. While it is home to one of the most consistent waves in the state, the water is 99% shark.

Inside the shallow pit of dorsal fins and serrated teeth, you’re likely to find Eric Geiselman. Eric lives a good life; He surfs, travels, plays music, etc.

Whatever you catch him doing, he’s likely to have a smile on his face, along with a pair of OTIS shades. We partnered up with the eye-wear brand to uncover just what makes Eric Geiselman so jubilant.

Favorite song right now

My playlist is all over the place. Lately, I’ve been listening to “Slint” by Breadcrumb Trail.
