The Land of Coyote

We had a really good camping mission to the desert this weekend complete with campfires, stars, and plenty of beers.

Anikka's Dad has owed this land since the 70's. Perfect spot for a camping mission

The moon was not full. Mars was

Annika said this water tower used to have a running shower under it. Not quite the Westin;)

More photos soon

Canadian Thanksgiving

Last month in Vancouver we had a super nice Canadian Thanksgiving with some new friends....We went to the skatepark to work up an appetitie.

Keegan ducked, I flipped the board, and Jeremy snapped the photo

Just came across this photo of the crew we took during the summer of the 1st People movie. We were all living in the office in Tahoe City . I think at one point I went a week without showering. In hindsight, it was worth it.

Life is Hard

Laying out in the sun, watching people skate all day sure is a tough life for this guy

6 Hours in Calgary

Is enough time to get a couple blog photos-

Screen Shot 2011-11-14 at 2.57.40 PM
Not sure what is in this thing but its pretty cool none the less

Screen Shot 2011-11-14 at 2.58.12 PM
We came across these amazing statues.....I wish more cities put more money into public art

Calgary was pretty cool even though we were only in and out. I was pretty happy to head back to the warm beach weather after a quick sample of 20 degrees Fahrenheit

Fall in Sapporo

On the 1st day of the Japan trip, Kazu asked us if we wanted to go for a hike on this local mtn outside of Sapporo. We were all pretty jet lagged so it seemed like the perfect thing to do.

Screen Shot 2011-11-08 at 9.48.21 AM
I don't think we could have picked a better day of the year to hike around.

Screen Shot 2011-11-08 at 10.11.32 AM
Once we got to this point of the hike Kazu told us you weren't allowed to snowboard at this resort. I guess its the Alta of Japan?

Screen Shot 2011-11-08 at 9.57.26 AM
Jussi started climbing things.

Screen Shot 2011-11-08 at 10.11.53 AM
And didn't stop until he was above Sapporo

Screen Shot 2011-11-08 at 9.56.56 AM
Good crew, perfect day

Screen Shot 2011-11-08 at 9.55.56 AM
After finishing the 2 mile hike back down, we came across this sign...Kazu told us it was a warning for hikers not to use the trail since there had been a bunch of bears spotted in the last couple weeks, we had taken a different trail to the top and missed it on the way up...glad we made it;)

Is That A VX1000?

Tim had one of the largest camera set ups I had ever seen a couple weeks back in LA. Not quite ideal for run and gun shooting

Halloween in Shibuya

Mark talked all week about getting a costume for Halloween. So when he showed up dressed like a frog with his skateboard we knew there was only one thing to do....shoot a couple photos

Sollors_Shibuya, Japan_L'Heureux-6662
Shibuya crossing is probably the busiest crosswalk in the world and def the busiest in Japan. People are shooting photos and time lapses of it daily.....I'm guessing this was the 1st frog costume of the day.

A skateboard always makes things more fun

Before you knew it, everyone was in the holiday spirit!...

Let's Rent Some More Bikes

The entire media crew is in Newport Beach, CA this week for our annual meeting. After a long day hanging out with some of the best dudes around we decided to rent some bikes from the local beach cruiser rental.

Screen Shot 2011-11-03 at 8.31.58 PM
The bikes had coaster breaks....which means really good skid outs. Adam took the cake on the skid factor but I got a better photo of Nicks....

Screen Shot 2011-11-03 at 8.32.17 PM
Hasi is in town as well and its always a pleasure getting to hang. He's pretty bad ass on his bike as well...especially for someone 6'6.

Screen Shot 2011-11-03 at 8.31.44 PM
We ended up not having time to shoot bike photos on this sidewalk and have cover shots of Bike Weekly planned for tomorrow

Screen Shot 2011-11-03 at 8.33.27 PM
Blotto drove out from AZ to hang this week and actually brought his own bike....In all reality he's a really good biker and snuck in a shot after shooting photos himself for most of the session....

Check out his blog post from the day:
