With our fall merch going out this week we’ve been getting a few questions as to why we use the triangle eye as our logo. First of all, I’ve been drawing this eye in crazy detail for over 12 years now, so it was only natural that it became our logo. It was one of the first things that I ever drew for Zach and he had it hanging from his rear view mirror before we ever decided to get a van and start a YouTube Channel.
So, why the eye? Basically the all-seeing eye symbolizes to us that *something* is watching over us all, that Karma is real, and that the things we do and say have a lasting effect. It’s a little reminder for us that since all of our actions have a domino effect on those around us, we want to try to put as much good out into the world as we can. Spread the stoke!
Each video we put out has a few goals in mind. First and foremost we want to keep it as real as possible with you guys. We try to share all of the challenges and hardships we face along with the good stuff. Second, we want to share inspiration that your life doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s. We choose to travel and live in our van seasonally, but full-time/year-round van life definitely isn’t for us. No matter where or how you choose to live, we are advocates for making it work for YOU (as long as it doesn’t negatively affect others). And most importantly, we want to get you guys as stoked as possible on this life that we get to live! Although there are inevitably going to be hard times we are lucky enough to live on a pretty badass planet that lets us surf it’s oceans and fling ourselves down it’s mountains. For us skating, surfing, and snowboarding make us feel the most happy and alive – maybe for you that’s something else, but making time to do the things that keep you stoked is way more important to us than any traditional measures of a “successful life.”
