DISPATCH: NORTH SHORE SPAM.


The North Shore is a place oversaturated with stimulation in the wintertime. This winter was lackluster, wave-wise, but it still had short stints of excitement in between misdirected swells and onshore winds. 

North Shore Spam ~ a short edit from two weeks of searching for waves along the “Seven Mile Miracle”. 

Surfers: Cliff Kapono, Kahana Kalama, Ezekiel Lau, Ford Archbold, Shane Borland, Michael Rodrigues, Jesse Mendes, Kyuss King, Colin Moran, Anthony Walsh, Eli Olson, Kainehe Hunt, Ezra Sitt, Ian Gouveia, Dusty Payne, Kiron Jabour, Conner Coffin, & Coconut Willie.

DISPATCH: GQ'S ~ "THE ANOINTED ONES: THE FUTURE ATHLETIC GREATS"


In September I helped film a short segment for GQ's short video "The Anointed Ones: The Future Athletic Greats". The video highlights ten of the most talented, up-and-coming athletes like Odell Beckham Jr. and Simone Biles. 

I had the opportunity to film with World Champion surfer, John John Florence (1:25 mark). To see the full article in print, pick up the November 2017 issue of GQ. 


DISPATCH: "INVITED NORTH" ~ STAY WILD MAGAZINE.


Last month, I was invited to visit Tofino, British Columbia, Canada to document the Vans Duct Tape Festival for Stay Wild Magazine. The trip coincided with the release of Vans' new UltraRange shoe designed by their team rider Patrick Gudauskas. 

I filmed and edited a short highlight video from the trip, as well as put together a short story for Stay Wild's Summer 2017 issue entitled, Invited North.

DISPATCH: CASUAL FRIDAY WITH – TY WILLIAMS.


Earlier this month I documented a new mural that Florida-based artist, Ty Williams, painted on the Banks Journal US HQ in Newport Beach, CA. This short film offers some insight into Ty's creative process and the new style of painting that he's been experimenting with over the last year. 

Banks Journal had an unveiling party for the mural last Friday at their inaugural "Casual Friday" event. Drinks were provided by Vacancy Coffee Bar Pabst Blue Ribbon. A special thanks goes out to Ty and the Banks Journal crew for supporting this rad project and event. 


DISPATCH: GUAYAKI ~ COME TO LIFE WITH KASSIA MEADOR & CYRUS SUTTON.


Two, new short films I put together about Guayaki Amiga & Amigo, Kassia Meador and Cyrus Sutton

"Pushing the limits of women's surf culture has always been natural for amiga Kassia Meador. She continually encourages her tribe to express themselves freely and be who they are meant to be. She takes the stand as an active leader for positive change in causes she feels passionate about, especially environmentally and socially."  ~ Guayaki 

"Life doesn't slow down for anyone, including amigo Cyrus Sutton. Despite today's fast pace, there's no better time than NOW to take a break, grab a tereré and enjoy the things you love most in order to #ComeToLife. Here's Cyrus finding a moment of clarity in his old backyard in San Diego between tour stops for his film Island Earth." ~ Guayaki
