Awhile back, I was checking the surf at Seaside reef in Cardiff, when local legend Rob Machado cruised in to the parking lot to do the same in his van. I’d run into him a few weeks earlier at my local lab (he’s a talented surfer and artist) when he commented on my van which was idling out front. When our paths crossed again, and I had my late Widelux camera with me, I asked him if I could take a quick portrait and he didn’t mind at all. I mean, with a van like that…who would! With our campervan just a week away from it’s extreme makeover, I was feeling a bit of van love this morning.
