Made in California: Artist Mike Weber Finds Balance in Nature

The Originals: Joe Bark

Director / Film / Edit

In our era of reality TV shows and social media, it’s refreshing to meet a guy like Joe Bark. Friendly and unassuming, the Palos Verdes resident also exudes a strength and vitality that seems to be more prevalent among folks who have saltwater coursing through their veins. And for the retired fireman, board shaper and family man, it does. Whatever the phrase “the good life” might mean to you, for Joe it’s about the simple joys of good people and a life lived in the water.

Southbay Strong: Alex Gray

Director / Film / Edit

You probably already know Alex Gray as one of the finest surfers to come out of the South Bay in his generation. Earnest, gregarious and full of life, he embodies the “go big or go home” dogma. Yet behind the enthusiasm and incandescent smile, this journey to the top is much more than conquering epic waves, one after another.
