A Slice of Life | Keep It Classic

sc-CARdiff
I’ve always been a sucker for classic cars, so I was thrilled with the opportunity to spend some time with a gorgeous Chrysler New Yorker. It seemed as though everyone walking through Cardiff were also keen on it; we had tourists and locals alike coming up to snap photos and admire the beautiful car. I also received some sweet compliments on my retro outfit, featuring SWELL’s mania top, Raga printed bell-bottom pants, BC buckle sandals, RAEN Fairbanks sunnies, and my mom’s vintage hat!

Transitions are an inevitable part of life. Whether they are planned or unexpected, they keep life interesting and push our limits.

Happy Days lie ahead for Ryan “Chachi” Craig, winner of the 9th annual Follow the Light Foundation Awards in memory of Larry “Flame” Moore. The 32 yr old Santa Cruz photog cracked the final 5 a few times since 2008 and now joins past winners club of legendary lensmen like Burkard, Glaser, Maasen and more.

The epic event was followed by a typical US Open Afterparty at the pope’s living room, the Surfing Magazine Oasis of insanity. Shots, see-throughs, cervezas and the eventual late night eats… Chachi killed it! (more…)
