There aren’t many things in life that are worth getting up at 5:30 AM on a Saturday morning, but this shoot with Thomas Barwick & co. might be one of them. We spent the day with a group of skate-and-surf addicted young adults who donate their weekend time to a nonprofit teaching disadvantaged, at-risk youth about the benefits of an active lifestyle through skateboarding, surfing, and camping.

As the sun rose over the hills of southern California, we watched sleepy-eyed kids transform into enthusiastic learners and daredevils. I loved watching the kids face each new challenge – and noticed that the most unlikely member of the group was a little girl that was, quite boldly, game for anything.

Building a sense of community is more important than ever - and we know our customers are looking to address this head on.  Working with this real group of young people was inspiring to witness.  This series portrays a genuine community spirit - a story that often doesn’t get celebrated.
