I recently visited the Philippines with prAna & the non-profit Surf For Life to help document the rebuilding process after last fall’s Typhoon Yolanda. It was an intense experience for both the heart-break of the towns and people in need, and the beauty of their spirit and reconstruction efforts. Monster Children & Corona Journeys have posted a gallery of my photos and an essay i wrote about my experience, please check it out here:
one of my favorite memories of 2013 was 4 back-to-back trips to Mexico over ~7 weeks. each trip was wildly different for waves, weather, people, and who got food poisoning, but overall it was a series of adventures that strengthened my love for the land and let me witness some absolutely amazing surfing. this was one of the last evenings I spent there in August, and Dane Reynolds was going nuts while filming for his latest movie, Loaded.
In case you missed it, last week I released my newest short film, “Water”, a brief odyssey into the world below the sea. Please check it out!
