A Photographers Tribute to Woodies and the California Dreaming Surfing Lifestyle

California Woody’s Are Iconic for a Legendary
Surfing Lifestyle Unique to Surfers and Locals

Woodies Cruising the Highway 101 / Pacific Coast Highway Run

When you think of Southern California is is hard not to
think of “Woody’s” or “Woodies” since the classic cars
get spelled both ways by car lovers and enthusiasts
who see them as the iconic symbol for surfers.

Woodie Classic Car Videos

Woodies to me showcase the beach lifestyle in a
nutshell and anytime I see them I think “California”.

As a photographer I try to take advantage of every
opportunity to photograph them and in 2007 I
created a “woodie” calendar which showcased a
different one for each month of the year.

For anyone else who is a classic car owner or just
loves woodies check out some of my favorite links
and photo shoots below.

Here is another awesome woodie I photographed in Huntington Beach California.
This ride is still actively used daily by the owner and surfing is the primary
destination for this classic car.

Woody’s and girls seem to go hand and hand and for every photo shoot I do
I always make sure to get pics with cars and pics with girls and cars to make
sure the wives of the woodie owners are also happy –

This is one the best all time woodies ever and here are more pics
with the cool car and hot Playboy cybergirl model

I have shot hundreds of woodies along the California coast over the last 8
years either at car shows, swimsuit model photo shoots or by chasing
owners down the Highway 101 and asking to get some pics. I am a
classic car addict and love adding new cars to my photo collections.
