Hi everybody, my name is Brett Kirkpatrick (@brettkirk) and I'm the producer of the @thatvanagain project! I'm a husband to my beautiful wife @elocin31and dad to our three-year-old daughter, Clementine. I've been a fan of VW buses and a board rider since grade school. Growing up skateboarding and snowboarding on the East Coast, I remember seeing VWs in the parking lot at the mountains and thinking how cool it would be to live in one and wake up ready to ride. Gratefully I can say I am now the co-owner of a '72 Kombi named Seagull. She's amazing. 
Growing up I spent summers surfing, but it wasn't until my early 20s that surfing became my lifestyle. I destroyed my shoulder in a snowboarding competition and spent a month recouping in Hawaii. It changed me. I came home devoted to surfing. My wife and I have always made our home by the ocean. Even while working in NYC, I commuted from the Jersey shore just to be able to see the ocean every day. We've lived in San Diego, Hawaii, Bali, and while living in a camper van in New Zealand we discovered we had a baby on the way. Luckily we ended up in Ventura, CA. This led me to work across from Rincon, in my dream job, with great friends. My creative partners on this project Scott Erickson (@scottgregerick) and Tony Cruz (@tonycruz) inspire me creatively every day in and out of the water. I'm so stoked to share this and future projects with them and ultimately, with all of you.
