Tim was awesome to invite me on his Baja 1000 gig, his second year my first. We were shooting the Volkswagen, Red Bull truck for Oakley. It was cool to be shooting a Volkswagen because Volkswagen has a lot of history with the race. The new Touareg clean-diesel vehicle is groundbreaking. It is fast, quiet, uses less fuel and has very low emissions (they even use the word “green” if that word could possibly be in the same sentence as Baja 1000). It looked amazing cruising the Mexican desert at 100 mph+. As Fuzzy Hall said the race is the wild wild west, it is unbelievable to watch firsthand what goes on during that race. You see hordes of Mexicans fans just feet away from speeding cars that are bouncing up and down side to side, it is not surprising that fans occasionally die watching this race. Thanks James Masters it was fun.

Just about got stuck in the mud outside of New Harmony. Steve's Awesome driving skills got us unstuck.

We are on the road with David Law doing a commercial for Fuel TV. It is a simple idea, pushing a skateboard through beautiful places. The challenge, nothing man made in the frame but the road and David’s board (and clothes). So far we have been in Goblin Valley, Capital Reef National Park, Hell’s Backbone by Calf Creek, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Big Sur, and now Point Reyes ‘Station, California, north of San Francisco.

Had a great time in New Jersey shooting a New Pollution segment on Little Sean. This kid was a super rad and an amazing BMXer. This kid’s outlook on life made me smile. (photo: Matt “Pretty Boy” Beacham and Little Sean on the boardwalk on the Jersey Shore)


I decided to try something new while we were in New Jersey and I booked us into a bed and breakfast instead of the usual corporate hotel thing . We stayed at the Cottage on the River and it was amazing. It is a very comfortable house on the bay. From our window we could see the boats in the bay just a few yards away. The place is run by Sally and her husband Phil. They are super cool and had made us feel comfortable. We had our own bathroom so there was plenty of privacy and there were nice common areas too. The breakfasts were perfect and the place is just so peaceful. Sally even let us do our final interview in the living room of the house. In times like this I think Sally and Phil should have our money and the Marriotts will be just fine without it. (photos: the place and Matt our host with Sally and Phil)


sean is rad and super easy to film, steve and I have had a great time shooting with him. One more day, then home for a few days before heading out on the next fuel spot shoot.
