How'd You Get Into Overlanding? Surfing is really the main reason I got into off-roading. I wanted to have a rig that was capable of getting me to some of the most remote surf spots both safely and comfortably.

Favorite Cali Raised LED Product: Most of the time when I go camping, I am rolling into camp in total darkness. I usually flip on the Low Profile LED Ditch Lights and my 32" Lower Bumper Hidden LED Light Bar when I need to see what is in front of me and on my side. It's nice knowing Cali Raised LED lights got my back and I can see everything around me!

Favorite Trip: This last Winter I went on a surf trip south of the border. The drive was extremely long and the roads were terrible due to a recent rainfall. It was all fun and games blasting through massive puddles until my buddy I was in a caravan with broke down, half submerged in a puddle the size of a small lake. His car wouldn't start and I ended up towing him the remaining 15 miles to camp through the night. Cali Raised LED lights led the way!

Do you have any big trips coming up soon?
I am currently planning a surfing and dirt biking trip up into Canada at the end of the summer. Going to try and find waves and some epic trails around Vancouver Island!
