Over the past 8 or so years fiddling around in the motorcycle/apparel industry with my camera, I've been given extraordinary opportunities by the influential people that make this little world of ours spin. This year, Paul D'Orleans and Vincent Prat decided to have an invitation-only family reunion in the coastal foothills of Central California. We did a little racing, skating, and surfing over a few days, trying our damn best to catch up as friends and enthusiasts. The good folks at Iron & Air Magazine teamed up with Converse to help cover the event, and asked if I would bring the camera along with me. This is the first post of a couple.
