WHAT WE'RE WORKIN' WITH

Michael Jordan Brown

This is Jordan Brown, he’s our intern and he’s chewing his food mad loud in my ear right now.

CALI THREESOME


IMG_5829

Friday night I was talking to our boy Jason Sherwin about my lack of snowboarding lately, so he threw out that Cali Threesome idea for Sunday. Myself along with Matt Finelli and Dan Rhoades took the bait.

IMG_5830

I was fishing Saturday, so although I wanted to stay in Newport Beach with Jason so I didn’t have to get up super early, I wasn’t prepared, so I got up at 5:45 am in LA and made it to Newport in time to catch some waves.

IMG_5831

I borrowed Tim the Shredder’s wetsuit and got a collar of black afterwards that was there for most of the day.

IMG_5833

THE CIRCUS

Yesterday our homie Jeff Garza from Good Worth invited us to the circus in San Diego. He traveled with them for 6 months or so and lived the craziest life. So he wanted to show us what’s up and take us behind the scenes. It was so tight. Here’s Lany Morrison excited to get it going.

ASHBURY NIGHT

Thursday was the Ashbury Night at Los Globos, earlier that day I received a c0py of Videograss’ latest release The Darkside. Nima has a nice HD projector at his house so we got some friends together to pregame it there.

It was real good. So psyched to have a copy before anyone else! It’s on repeat.
