Being lazy is nothing to celebrate, no one ever congratulated the bird who woke up late to catch the worm. Although, lazy Sundays can make an exception to the rule! Especially when some form of circle track racing is on television and folding laundry while watching your favourite Netflix shows. But, if you’re lucky like us down here in Florida, you might just enjoy relaxing on the sand without get a wicked sunburn. However, on this particular lazy Sunday we met up with Randy Noa to hangout and shoot his car.
Who might that be? Well, he is a 21 year old West Palm Beach native who is part of the BANWPB crew, but more so of the drift club Street Legal. He is one of the youngest in the group and I would consider him the man in charge of their media success. Randy can be found regularly pushing his limits on track and on the streets. With his aggressive style he is quite the sight to see, currently favouriting 360 drift entries and destroying his rear bumper on any rear clipping point by getting so close. His single turbo RB20 power, BC BR coils, Ebay arms, hockey pucks engine mounts, and about 300 layers of paint on his Zenki Nissan 240SX is the model definition of Drift Bae.
With the minor setbacks of having to help some of his friends with a ride situation, I didn’t have an issue of turning this into a “shoot Randy on his errands” mission. It gave this shoot more of a relaxed feel, instead of having to setup up the car in different locations and move it into the best position for that perfect shot. It was nice to get these candid shots; nothing staged, all 100% real. When it came down to the drift shots, well, that’s when things started to get out of wack. The sun was fading fast and the area of choice to drift wasn’t lit by street lights. So we had to call it quits, but as for the rest of the day, it was so chill! We were happy with what we got!
