Day Trip to Kinnakeet

Traveled down to the to the Hatteras Island, North Carolina this past weekend and filmed with Brett Barley and Philip Goold. The only decent sandbar on the island was in Kinnakeet and it seemed like everyone from Virginia Beach to the South Carolina border knew about it. It was nice to finally get some decent swell this season and hopefully it keeps up for the rest of September and into the fall.

El Salvador on Film

Last spring Philip Goold and I put together a contest and film trip to El Salvador for the ASP 3 Star event at Punta Roca in July. Our travel crew consisted Philip's longtime friend Cody Thompson as well as Tar Heelers Fisher Heverly and Brett Barley. This was my third time staying in the town of El Tunco and it’s suprising to see how much this little town has transformed in the past six years. The images in the gallery were shot on an old Nikon F2 camera with a Nikkor 50mm f/2 lens on Kodak TRI-X 400 film on our travels in El Tunco, El Sunzal and La Libertad.

After surfing the same beach break in front of our hotel in for ten days straight Philip Goold, Cody Thompson and Fisher Heverly decided to break out the rental foam boards and change things up a little before hitting the road the next day.

A summertime jaunt to El Salvador with Philip Goold, Cody Thompson, Fisher Heverly and Brett Barley. The boys stayed down the road a few kilometers from La Libertad and were welcomed with smiling faces, delectable cuisine, rippable beach breaks and rock points.

Outer Banks of North Carolina

Linked up with Philip Goold, Cody and Tristan Thompson, and Brett Barley back in April. The waves did not produce the clip worthy ramps and faces we were looking for but it felt good to be back in Carolina. All of the boys ended up scoring with filmer Sean Benik two days later. Below are a few frame grabs of mine from Friday and Saturday as well as Sean's edit from the month of April on the Outer Banks.

The first run of Polymer Persons tees & tanks. All of the shirts are made in Los Angeles by American Apparel and printed in Virginia Beach with environmentally friendly water based ink. The print is from a photograph Leebo took a few weeks ago in Montana. Here is the story behind it:

Bambi was found on the road by this guy Doc after his mother had been hit by a car right outside of his property. He picked him up and set him up in this cage until he could contact Montana Fish and Wildlife. They ended up telling him that due to the dense population of deer in Montana he would probably end up being euthanized if they came and picked him up. So Doc ended up telling them that the deer died over night, when actually he was nursing him with formula made for lambs. He gave him the name of Earl. Now Earl is out of the cage running around Docs 78 acre plot of land on the East Gallatin River. Every morning he comes knocking on Doc's door adorned in a collar waiting for breakfast. Earl plays with Doc's dogs and is living a much happier life than he would have if Montana Fish and Wildlife would have gotten a hold of him.

Got a chance to film with Philip Goold back in May. We waited for three days, hoping the wind would ease up or turn more in our favor but it never did. This is what we got... The wind just never let up. By the end of the session my lens was covered in salt.
