by on Friday 6th September, 2013   22436 Visits   Comments

Iconic surfer, Rob Machado, has travelled the world for more than half his life. During that time, he’s crossed paths with countless individuals who share a love for surfing and a passion for the arts. In his new series called Through The Lens, we meet these individuals and follow Rob as he re-connects with the people who’ve inspired him along the way.

In this episode, Rob has the unique opportunity to spend a week working along side legendary tree house builder, Takashi Kobayashi, during the final stages of what Takashi describes as “his most important tree house” to date. By working along side Takashi, Rob begins to understand the power this beautiful, symbolic tree house can bring to the Tsunami stricken Sendai region of Japan. This great gift Takashi is offering to the surviving children of this region is one small step in bringing some joy, happiness, and light to a part of Japan heavily impacted by the Tsunami disaster.
