CityWild has been an extraordinary journey. Between hiking 10 miles from the countryside to the beach of Malibu, to the actual production, the whole trip was an amazing process. The entire crew learned so much about outdoors trekking, surfing, and even style. Here’s a behind the scenes glimpse at the products we loved.
