(October 25, 2012) - International singer/songwriter Ben Howard passed through San Diego for a little sun and surf during a recent gig at the Belly Up Tavern. Ben, a passionate surfer himself, managed to sneak a few sessions and jam with surf icon, Rob Machado, in-between shows. "You hear about musicians rolling through town, and you gotta' throw out the invite," says Machado.

Ben, from Devon England, is currently on a grueling tour across the UK, Europe, America, Canada, and Australia, after the release of his 2011 platinum-selling album, Every Kingdom. He jumped on the opportunity to join Machado and his friends at Dragon for a California session. In return, Ben shared some of his latest music with Rob for an impromptu jam session.

"We went to Kansas City last time we were in the States," says Howard. "Music takes us to all kinds of crazy places, so when we get to be by the sea, it's great. We had a show in San Diego and had a day off, so Rob kindly invited us around to do some surfing and play some guitar."

This video by Dragon, is part of a series titled MUSIC + SURF, which is devoted to bringing unexpected cultures together through the combined passions of MUSIC + SURF.
