Brad Jacobson is rad.. He runs Civic Couch and shoots lots of great photos from the LA area... Got to meet up with him and blessed to get a few waves infront of his lens...
We got quite a bit of glassy barrels and good times for sure!! Great Laughs and surfing with friends is always fun...
took a few lumps for sure to get the shots and saw some beautiful waves!!!! Happy New YEAR!!!!! Check out Civic Couch and hope you are in waves!!!!

New York

Long days and even longer nites... It ain't over.. it's just beginning.. got in early to NYC and slept here like a log.. on the floor .. on the concrete.. Comfy is comfy when your tired..
humans are dirty...
The gang checks out the shots.. I got the whole catalog which I am thrilled about...
The Empire State Building is Black and White
Christmas Colors are even cooler..
Times Square around 2am or so... i recall.
Don't forget the reason for the season!
and this gang is awesome to work with!!!
Been a long couple of days and gnarly travel day today.. Praying my luggage shows up and a few packages in the mail.. If you don't hear from me on the blog daily, it's because i am off to Ecuador and will update when i get to interwebs..... Thanks for the support and following all year!!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS Y'ALL!!!

Kelly Slater

Kelly is the man!!!
I am not into competition surfing unless they are raising the bar.
Kelly has done both in the freesurf and contest world..
