Just got back from a day and a half photoshoot in Catalina with 2 legends in the Dive Industry. At age 86 and still diving Co-Founder of Body Glove, Bob Meistrell and Jean Michel Cousteau who is the son of legendary Jacques Cousteau. I came over on the Body Glove boat and we met up with Jean Michel who was hosting a family dive camp on Catalina Island. We were there for a product shoot with new co-op wetsuits and other products between Body Glove and JMC. Never had to sleep on a boat before and that took sometime to get used to while trying to sleep. Thank god the boat ride back home was a lot smoother than the way to Catalina. Only one person was over the side throwing up his breakfast!

Check out the photos of Matt Barker's FXR that I shot down in San Diego. On the cover of the new Hot Bike Magazine. Got just enough shots in for the cover before the San Diego PD pulled us over and sent us home.
So I skipped the morning surf thinking I had a loan doc appointment and was getting antsy cause I needed to get to the shop to get some work done. Well my wife had arranged as part of my anniversary present to have Bailey from the LA Kings to stop by the house and give me some LA Kings gear. I was totally surprised and it was real weird seeing this Lion standing at my door as I went to go answer it. First the Kings win the Stanley Cup and now Bailey comes to my house. What an amazing year it is to be a Kings fan. Go Kings Go! And thank you to my wife for doing that. Best present ever.
