Living the California dream proved much harder than anticipated. Combining a "work" and personal trip to shoot dirt biking, surfing, and product shots along the coast from Whistler to Southern California for four weeks straight. Long nights of driving, setting up tents at truck stops and the relentless rain were only a few of the problems faced. Persevering through the wind and the rain, rewards of sun and clean surf soon waited. When the surf died out, it was time to head to the desert to ride mountains of sand. Although tough, this trip was definitely worth it.
