BLUE LAGOON WITH SELAH TENNBERG

Ahhh youth. As I've recently officially circled the sun 27 times, there's nothing that makes me wish time were spinning backwards more than after shooting with Selah Tennberg. Her innocent beauty and silent thoughts on the possibilities of this world ooze out through every frame. It's Springtime on the North Shore and this week of excessive amounts of April showers are sure to bring May flowers, and ideally sunshine again. Though in the meantime we'll be here, pretending like we've got the Blue Lagoon in Iceland all to ourselves.

A few images from our gloomy evening, below.

KAM HWY CRUISIN' WITH PENNY SKATEBOARDS

I'm a skateboarder's nightmare. I push mongo. My brother Evan Mock just shakes his head at me. Absolutely none of my style or coordination from surfing transfers over to riding a board with four wheels. I actually prefer sitting and someone push me; that's fun to me, and a bit safer. However, Penny Skateboards gave me this pretty piece of indigo printed plastic to try out and I gave it a go in front of my house along Kamehameha Hwy. I think it's safe to say i've found my new mode of transportation to avoid the bumper to bumper Winter traffic. I'm a beginner at best so you definitely won't find me zipping through Banzai Skatepark, but i will be that person rolling by on the inside roads beating you to Pupukea Grill.

CHASING LIGHT WITH AMBER MOZO

One of the things i love most about being from Hawaii is getting to see firsthand how much creativity flows from this place. Amber Mozo is one of those people you live through vicariously on social media. She's got one of those unmistakeable laughs and a gaze you'll never forget. Her ability to capture moments so effortlessly is ridiculous. A quick glance at her Insty [ @ambermozo ] and you'll see what i'm talking about.

She recently released her first book, Chasing Light, which chronicles 80 days of travel around the world with her mother and siblings. It's much more than that, though. It's a bit of a love letter, to everyone with a desire to see the world, and also to those who have seen much and know how traveling can change you. It's been over 10 years since her Dad was lost to the ocean, photographing Pipeline here on the North Shore, and Amber takes us through her journey since then. Her words are vulnerable and passionate; and that's how I think of her photographs too. I never got to meet Jon Mozo, but i see glimpses of his light through Amber's book, and now you can too.
