Das Tubby (AKA "Da Bus")

Our crew travels in style aboard Tubby, our 25 year old Volkswagen Vanagon Bus. She's the perfect surf-mobile, climbing basecamp and photography road studio.

The Volkswagen bus is the quintessential road trip vehicle, and Tubby does not disappoint. She is decked out with all the toys: solar panels on her roof that allow us to live and work off the grid for weeks at a time, a kitchen with fridge/freezer, a queen sized bed, and all-wheel drive for those winter ski trips that we love.

And as we have discovered, Tubby is also an ambassador of fun and Aloha. Not a road trip goes by when we don’t have total strangers slowing down to give us a thumbs up or take a photo or walk over in a parking lot and tell us a story about their parent’s bus back in the day. If you’re going to travel as much as we do, you might as well have fun doing it!
