This year, Thanksgiving festivities were celebrated in North Carolina, a state that, to us Minnesotans, is summed up entirely by Duke basketball, Michael Jordan, and Cape Fear. After spending just a few short days in the Wilmington area, a few things became clear very quickly. The food is delicious, the weather is spectacular, and the locals are amazing. To be completely honest, I simply didn’t want to leave. In the midst of working on my horribly pale tan and pounding back cafè lattes, I did my best to snap a few shots of the local scenery. Here are some of the results.
I took a quick trip back to Minneapolis for the weekend, spending some time shooting the breeze at two wonderful Check Your Six retailers, Cal Surf and Studiiyo 23. The first stop was at Cal Surf, a shop that has supported our brand since day one. Well, in all actuality, they were supporters even before Check Your Six became a brand…when we ran a local t-shirt brand called Sanktuari. After five years, the relationship between our brands is stronger now than it has ever been.
