This is Oakley’s master of the lens and of flying squirrels. This was in Bali during the Oakley Pro Junior Championship. Russ is classic.
Asher Pacey at HT’s. Another crazy good Aussie who’s totally under the radar in the states. Asher fricken rips. I like this photo, too. It was one of my favorites of that trip in ’08.
This is Mitch Coleborn at Maccas in 2008. Pre-moustache era.
Here’s an old school photo of Ozzie and Barney — two of my favorite people. This was shot in New York about eight years ago maybe. Barney had walked into a barbershop near the Unsound Surf Shop and came out with this mental mohawk. Never a dull moment with him.
This is Andy Irons in the Telos around five years ago or so. He was ripping so hard during this trip. His style is so damn good, too. I love looking at these older photos.
