Over the course of last week, I found myself shooting on the East Coast of Fl., then a day later, shooting on the West/Central Coast of Florida. In hindsight, the most consecutive days of hard riding and consistent photo snapping I’ve tucked under my belt in awhile.
Enjoy…

For the past two years, I’ve had the honor to stop by Dave White’s house (Area 43) in San Diego for an infamous Saturday session. Things get wild, always. And the cast of legendary riders that roll through is pretty humbling for me: getting out the camera is nothing less of an honor.

This year, Mulville and I were in the area for a Profile bike shop tour. It made sense to wake up at the crack of dawn and drive 90 miles south from Riverside to Dave’s perfectly manicured yard/ramp. At 9am, we put rubber to wood, baked in the sun for 6-1/2 hours, and left actually not wanting to leave: We had to drive 3 hours north-east to Palm Desert.

Thanks to Dave White for the hospitality. Thanks to the locals for an incredibly dialed session and for being easily photogenic. Until next year…

I asked Dirt Ron if he'd mind if I shot this nose fakie. With a giant grim, he executed 4 in a row for me. Thanks man.
