Our sponsor Hyundai asked my family and me to take a new 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe on an "Epic Fun Day." What that meant was entirely up to us. The first step was coming up with where we wanted to drive! We chose a beautiful beach near our home in Los Angeles where I knew we could pack lots of fun activities into a short time. Then we invited our pal and video maker Eric Mittleman along to document our day. Watch the video above for a glimpse of the fun! Here's what we did:
• Used our homemade kite aerial video rig to shoot some bird's-eye-view video.
• Hunted for sea glass, which we brought home and used to decorate polymer clay creations.
• Made a bubble wand out of sticks and strands of seaweed.
• Explored the cool caves and tidepool lifeforms on the beach.
