This Epic Video Will Make You Want To Quit Your Job And Live In A Van With Your Hot Girlfriend

by 5 years ago

We can level with each other, right Bros? After six years of blogging here at BroBible, I hope you’ve figured out that I’m BroBible’s freewheelin’ hippie nomad. My beard is approaching Paul Bunyan-esque levels of gnar, so much so that one-in-every-five people at the Super Bowl the other week asked me if I was Allan from The Hangover. I love Bob Marley and skiing and road trips and Phish and reading Hunter S. Thompson and all that stereotypical shit. It might sound like a cliche, but adventure is my drug of choice.

The reason I bring this up is because this video is the very definition of living the dream: Just a Bro, his girl, and a van, roaming the West Coast with no where in particular to go. It’s just so… helplessly romantic. So… uninhibited. So… Kerouacian. It’s a life many Bros dream of, if only it wasn’t for the whole having-a-job and bills and rent and all that other bullshit that keeps us from taking big risks with our lives.

The video is by filmmaker/pro surfer Cyrus Sutton, who ended up visiting some very rad friends doing some very rad things: Crafting homemade surf boards, building tree houses, chillin’ in hot springs, living in a van down by the river without being a Chris Farley cliche. Watch the video above. It’s epic.

And note the ridiculous treehouse/skate park compound that his buddy Foster Huntington is building in the Pacific Northwest. It’s called “The Cindercone“:

INSANE. It reminds me of the Ewok Treehouses in Star Wars.

Unreal. That is a dream crib. Anyway, shout out to Cyrus Sutton for the dope video. Get out there and do epic shit, Bros.
