IGLOO & Andy Davis

“As a wee munchkin growing up in sunny Southern California I had many wonderful adventures with family and friends. Packing up the VW bus in my early years and then on to the trusty Oldsmobile wagon a few years after that, we would head to the coast, the mountains and lakes, parks and ball fields that surrounded us in all directions. Everywhere we journeyed to we had a companion that accompanied us. Yes, sometimes it was the family dog or a distant cousin, but it was always, without fail, the tried and true trusty red, white and white and blue Igloo Playmate. Filled with Hawaiian Punch, peanut butter sandwiches,orange slices and all other sorts of goodies.” -Andy Davis

Surfrider Foundation benefit with West Elm

Surfrider Foundation benefit with West Elm

It's the season of love and giving so Andy Davis is sharing his work to help protect our seas. These beautiful images titled Alana from Solana, printed on recycled sugar cane paper, have been set aside for a good cause and you can help support it. A portion of the profits from this series will go to the Surfrider.org, a non-profit foundation dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's ocean, waves and beaches. Thank you West Elm for joining forces with us to educate and raise money for such a great cause. It is an honor for Andy to give back to the big blue ocean that has given him a lifetime of joy.

Way Way Out There Grand Opening 11.11.17

Way Way Out There Grand Opening 11.11.17

We had the grand opening of the Way Way Out There gallery and space station on Saturday 11/11.  Man, what an overwhelming experience it was!  It was wonderful to have so much support from our community.  My wife Ashley @opadell had her debut show and installation and it was a smashing success!  Lots of red dots!  Big mahalos to Jon Wegener and Sean Tully of Second Harvest for the smooth and styling sounds that kept the crowd swinging and swaying.  To Matt and the quacks from Duckfoot Brewing for the delicious suds.  To our Way Way Out There crew David, Liam, Randall, Cole, Grace and husband Big John who I like to call Little John, and to our newest member John Konno for all his commitment and hard work this past month.  This event would not be possible without everybody's dedication and hard work.  I am so stoked to have such a wonderful team.  Also thanks to Embry Rucker, John Brodie, and Evan Schell for documentation of the show throughout.  To Tyler Warren for the two beautiful surfboards.  To Todd Major and Manny Caro for the sound and vision on opening night.  To Chrome Digital for the batch of new prints last minute.  To Kirk Gee for bringing down Way of the Bird books last minute.  Last but not least a huge thanks to everyone who made it out.  It was so much fun! -Andy Davis
