From the best part of the month, to the worst:
Every Wednesday the Vans park in HB opens the bowl to bikes all day for free. And bikes only!
It’s great to know that in going there I will run into all my friends and meet new ones as well!
So here’s some photos of those sessions of myself and Larry Edgar and Ross Lanier.
The worst part was that we lost a friend I met through shooting wave photos.
Brad Honda who passed earlier this month at 33 years old. He was one of the nicest people I’ve met through shooting photos and I hope everyone who he impacted (including myself) changed for the better.
His attitude was so loving and forgiving…he was also a big wave fanatic. He would go out on the biggest wave days and come up laughing.
Featured here, is a photo I got of him on about a 15 ft face wave he rode last summer. As you can tell he got destroyed once this wave closed out on him, but damn this wave was huge. I remember being so nervous watching it roll through…
