A lot of people write these things off but when the last time you were completely frothing to surf in a storm like today? πŸŽ₯: @curiousclementine @gofoil @goon.bunny #loyaltothefoil


It’s almost this season again. @sacraficialamb


A few months ago my friend @robbwilson_photo asked me to help him tell his story. β€œStill Here” is the story of surf photography helped get him his life back. Link to the full video is in my bio. Music score by @walkerguitars



Had an awesome trip to South Africa last week. thanks to the @positivevibewarriors and @instagrahamnash for bringing me along to shoot the video and @wavesforchange, @mikeyfebruary and @twincaleb for showing us around. What a rad project and epic crew! CANT STEAL OUR VIBE coming this summer.


Lucky to have this beautiful girl in my life! Here's @tessistess a few weeks back in panama.


I think about 50 percent of the time I kick out stoked on my wave @austinmeetsworld is on twice as good of one behind me. This one here was no different! πŸŽ₯: @mike_cochran



Drove a couple thousand miles with a few of my best friends and rode some fun waves last week. Thanks for the clips @mel__lani


I'll never forget when I was probably about 13 years old and my dad referred to a 25 year old as a kid. I remember saying he's not a kid he's 25, and my dad replied "your a kid til your 30". Well I'm not sure what happened to all the time but I guess I'm not a kid anymore as of today. At least I still feel like one! Stoked to spend my birthday in Panama with all these legends!


This was one year ago today while on one of the best trips I can remember to North Africa with a couple of my favorite people @kala.buthman and @tessistess. So excited for another adventure with these two next week!



Happy Birthday to my favorite girl in the world @tessistess. I can't wait for all the adventures to come!


Had way too much fun making this video with @dylangraves @kaiborggarcia and @jettschilling


@tannergud and @dylangraves wrote a genius song so we had a throw together a quick video.



@perrygershkow and @noahwaggy's film is showing tomorrow night in downtown Santa Cruz at the Nick. 7pm, $10 tix at door πŸ€™πŸ½


This thing is so much harder than it looks! Thanks @goon.bunny for letting me try it out. I had a blast learning how to surf again! πŸŽ₯: @noikukui


It seemed as if every other day we were repacking our bags and heading out on another adventure weather it be by boat, plane or car. We covered a lot of ground for spending just under 30 days in Indonesia this year. 5 days was the longest we ever stayed put to be exact. Because of this we met plenty of cool people and saw a ton of beautiful places. Here are a few of the sessions that @tessistess or I sat out to Document. Link to the full video is in my bio. @kala.buthman @noikukui



Terima Kasih πŸ‡²πŸ‡¨, good times and good people.


It felt good to go fast.


Today is my parents 30th anniversary and I think that's pretty awesome!



My brother @kala.buthman just sent me these. I can't decide if I'm more stoked for him or more jealous. I'll be there in 12 days, it can't come fast enough. Scroll right➑️
