Last month I sat down with the good folks @twsnow to rap out about our anniversary and more importantly what we have planned for the next 25. I was looking for some riding photos and realize I didn’t have many. This one was taken a few years back at a Wiegle’s Heli trip in BC by @johnschwirtlich . I’d like to give props to the TW fam for all the love. @taylormboyd @hauc @hamiltonick

25 years to this day I️ went to the la county recorder and filed our business license for @686 . To think I’d be doing this a quarter of a century later with a family of amazing human beings is something I’m proud of. We’re always working on new stuff with the same passion, sweat and tears like it’s our first day in business. I️ wanted to take today as a reflection of the #1 reason we’re still blessed to be able to do what we do. What better than to go to the indoor racing tracks! It’s all about the people and unified vision of making a better experience. Thank you to all the past, current and future employees, reps, retailers, vendors, athletes, distributors, supporters, fans and dreamers who’s been a part of this. I’m so stoked on what we have coming up next. Let’s go! #wejustgettingstarted #readyforthenext25

The best kept secret (but not really a secret) spot in Tokyo to check out everything and anything tangible, Japanese style is Tokyu Hands. Where else can you find Made in UK NB’s to Wooden dowels that have perfectly drilled cores to Briefing bags to Titanium drill bit all stacked in an orderly and alphabetically format? I️ can spend all day here and come up with some new level shit

When people ask me who I respect in the creative world, there’s only a few who are naturally talented enough to do it all. My longtime friend Nin is one of them. Yes, he’s the lead designer for @stussy , the founder and designer for @blkpineworkshop , the founder and designer for both men’s and women’s for @maidennoir , has a cafe, an agency and is an established architect and college professor. The best part is that he’s low key and would never talk about his accomplishments. Along with his partner for life, Krista and his tight crew in Seattle, Tokyo, New York, Irvine and Canada all of them keep progressively moving forward. #respect

I'm tinkering with the new #nixonmission watch all this morning. I think @dinenna may have converted me to #androidwear at least for my wrist. Big ups to Chad and the entire @nixon design crew for executing a great piece of work

I found my next stop by the sea. Classic sunset snap but this one is Chicama-the longest left in the world. Hopefully the swell picks up. #goofyfootforever

I'm always tight on time. I cram too much shit into unrealistic schedules. My friends hate me for this. I've always had Peru on my bucket list and outside testing a few new products, I have no agenda but to explore, get dirty and be inspired by the local people. When I look back on creating the next best thing, it always has to do with letting yourself go. Next stop, dunno but looking forward to finding out #thisisreal #nofilter
