It was back in the 90's when I met up with him and the other Rosarito boogie rats and we'd ride the empty beach breaks 'til we were hungry. Then we'd get out of the water and eat some tasty tacos for fifty cents each! Ah, the good old days.
I lost touch with most of them but I knew that Damian was in a punk band. He later told me that he toured all over Europe. Yup, a real life rock star. We linked up again late last year and he was interested in coming to Cabo Freak Fest 2012. Not only did he show up but he had the time of his life, took the Freak of the Week Award and grabbed some sick shots along the way.
Not exactly sure when he picked up a GoPro but let me tell you... this guy has the skills to not only get the shot but also post process to make sure the colors are right. Very impressive.
Damian just opened up another one of showings down in Rosarito. I really wanted to go to the first night last night but I suck. After looking at the photos he sent over, I'm kicking myself in the butt for not going. Looks like he had an epic turn out and on behalf of all the 2012 Cabo Freak Festers, we wish you the best brotha!
His photos will be up in Rosarito for the next couple weeks then he's going to take them to another gallery in Tecate. Interviews and other cool stuff are lining up for him. We're stoked for him.
|Where's Damian's scissors?|
|What is he saying? Maybe something like, Manny V inspired me. Just a guess.|
|The real reason why I'm bummed I didn't make it... the FOOD!|
|No pictures of the pictures please.|
|I know that rock.|
|Nice work brotha.|
|And this is how I hold my pole.|
|Can't wait to get down there and check it.|
|He's a comedian as well.|
|Pretty pro status, eh?|
|And when I went to Lover's Beach in Cabo, I realized the ocean is stronger than me.|
