I can still remember the day when I got my first screen burned for printing t-shirts. I was on a trip to Thailand, and my buddy DA ran a really cool clothing company called Magnetic. He helped me source a lot of goods on that trip. At 20 years old I had no idea how shirts were made but being in Thailand, things felt a little more accessible. Young people were making things, they were making brands, they were following their dreams. I was inspired.
Like most kids in the 90's, I grew up scribbling on walls and thrashing around my neighborhood on my BMX. We left our mark wherever we went. Some people outgrow this, and for others, it's an artistic obsession that only gets stronger with age.
Looking back and hell looking forward, I think this obsession is one of the reasons I do Broken and Coastal. In a way it's my way to leave my mark, it's my artistic expression, my scribble on the wall.
We put together a black and white book for the COBRA Racing Photo Show at Royale Brewing. So much good photography in this.
P.S. Designing this was a blast!

For the release of Volume 03 of Broken & Coastal, we held a party at Stripe in downtown Santa Cruz. For those that don't know, Santa Cruz is a small city on California's central coast. The city has a special place in my heart and some of my favorite people on earth live there. And as if I needed another excuse to host a party there, Santa Cruz arguably has some of the best trails in the United States. Oh, and the sunshine, I can't forget about the sunshine!
