I was invited by Joel Tudor and friends at Vans to come over and shoot the second in a series of three longboard events. I don't usually shoot contests, but this one was rad. It is an invite only, 16 surfers, all friends, in New York, surfing, skating and live shows. I owe a big thank you to Vans and Joel for the invite and putting me up in a rad hotel room and getting a firsthand look at the edge of LongIsland and a frontrow seat to Mos Def and Public Enemy!!! Surfer Magazine did a quick write up on the event you can see on the link below. Look for more images to come in the magazine and once I get the film back too!
