“i was lucky to be on the huf tour in hawaii with these boys last week. it makes me very proud to see the respect these guys have for each other. skateboarders and surfers not only getting along like brothers, but truly sweating what each other does on their boards, having an open mind and respect for one another is the way life should be. aloha, mahalo and love more.” —Mark Oblow

This was the first time I shot Arto. Dylan Rieder and I went to meet him right after he got on Quiksilver.
Dane Reynolds, Laguna Beach, 2004 Back Den 002
I think it was the first time I had shot with Dane. He was very quiet, and not too stoked to be getting shot actually.

I remember this was the hotel Robert Downey JR. was at when he got busted for drugs back in the day.
