Smith Sun 2011

I just spent the last couple of days shooting the 2011 Sun Catalog with the Smith crew, we got some good stuff! The new 2011 glasses look so good....you can never have enough sweet stuff in the wardrobe! :)

I love hanging with new people. On the Santa Cruz leg of the shoot I shot with fellow MTB athlete Cam McCaul and Kayak athlete Brad Ludden. It is pretty rad hearing about other sports....I really know nothing about competitive kayaking but you can't help but appreciate an awesome athlete. Brad founded an organization called First Descents which gives outdoor therapy to young adults who have suffer from Cancer. Rad guy on a mission...check it out!

In sad news, Andy Irons passed away yesterday of what sounds like Dengue Fever. I didn't know Andy personally but when something like this happens to someone in the action sports community, everyone feels it! So, so sad. RIP Andy Irons!
