 I just got to Texas after almost a week of driving across the western United States and lucked into one of the best swells I've ever seen hit the coast line here in Texas!! So stoked to of scored this with just a small hand full of my best friends... I snapped this sequence right before I ran out and surfed with lobster sunburnt legs for 4 hours straight :)

Myself & a good crew of friends went out to Death Valley here in the nutty desert of California for New Years few months back. Took off from Ventura in a few vans loaded up with multiple bikes... there was super 8, fires, wow so many laughs, 2 dogs, we hiked a canyon, got drunk new years night with fireworks, ate some expensive bread, sand sliding, wild donkeys hill side, so cold i had to stop and warm my hands on my cb-400 motor, just all the good stuff i suppose. gotta love the open air out there. (the video above is all footage i shot while out there + the music is from my band "Dive, The Divide")

write up on KORDUROY.tv

 Pretty stoked to see people stoked on what I do, i tend to get caught up in a lot of different things at once, but i guess they all drive each other into being better so it's all good in the long run. Music, photography, filmmaking, motorcycles, skateboarding, and most definitely surfing... these things run my world and i wouldn't have it any other way. Here's a write up that KORDUROY did on myself and my work. have a read , listen, and feel for what I've been up to. Thanks world. -JR

A band from Ventura, CA matched up as a trio (Cory Soto // guitar & vox) (Izzy Morones // drums) (Emilio Morones // bass). The sounds these guys put out live are insane! It's like what you hope to see energy wise at a live show, this was their first, about a month ago and they blew the roof off the place. (black & whites shot on ISO 3200 35mm film).  Check out their only recorded song as of now, Magenta Rain

Scarlet on deck

 This is probably the worst photo of Scarlett Johannson i could find,, and she's still hot of course. 
And this is probably the worst drawing i could have done as well,, but its fitting with the haggard 6'1" thruster.. which i plan on taking out once theres some more meat to the surffffff + GROTE examination through 3-D + a quiver of now.

this kid shreds the cement!!

 Few months ago I filmed one afternoon at Ojai skatepark this kid CASH that I had been seeing slay the cement pool there over the past couple years... he's only 10 years old and the kid is flying around like it's nothin. Made this quick edit with Hendrix on the mind. go skate with him, he's there literally every freakn afternoon.

Ojai bowl sessions + parking lot speed bump.

 Myself and 2 of my closest friends just moved into a warehouse in Ventura as a creative space and office for all our different works we do. We got tired finally after about a week of moving in and building so we jumped in Rooney the van and sessioned the bowl up in Ojai, which we do a few times a week it seems.. love this tiled out cement heaven of a pool!
