As the second day of the first annual Doheny Surf Festival commenced, so did the swell, the music and the island vibes. The smell of sunscreen and coconut oil lingered in the air over the beach and tents stocked with Polynesian jewelry, surf art and board shorts of all materials began to slowly break down for the evening as headliners Common Sense, Fishbone and Everlast prepared to wrap up the weekend. It'll be less than a month before we're back on these shores again for the massive Doheny Days festival in September featuring the Flaming Lips, Jane's Addiction, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and more. But as far as last night is concerned, experience the best of what we saw on the beach after the jump.

As if by some divine magic, this Carson-based island singer and his band managed to pull everyone out of the shade and/or ocean to do a little hip-shaking, two-stepping and singing about island life. Kids and adults tripping on the aloha spirit danced and smiled right along with Zhen, who beaming under his fedora through his entire set. Those were some good island vibes, right?
