Documenting the talents of amazing people who happen to surf.
Iconic surfer Rob Machado has traveled the world for more than half his life. And during that time, he’s crossed paths with countless individuals who share a love for surfing and a passion for the arts. In his new series called Through The Lens, we meet these individuals and follow Rob as he re-connects with the people who’ve inspired him along the way.
This episode features Jay Nelson, a San Francisco-based artist who specializes in a unique type of automobile customization. This past winter, Jay drove down to Rob’s house in Cardiff, CA, where the two worked together to build out the inside of Rob’s van and create the ultimate surf mobile.
