From the subways of Brooklyn to the warm waves of Mexico: such is the travel arc of the  Beastie Boys '  Mike D , who was asked recently to guest-edit an issue of  Monster Children  magazine. Since the quarterly mag's all about art, surfing and skating, it seemed a surf trip was in order, so Mike packed up boards, beer, friends, his son -- who got his Beastie dad started on surfing ten years ago -- and a bunch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and headed to Baja for a surfing safari.

Mike D also brought along director  Alex Kopps  who shot a retro-looking surf film capturing the trip.  It's streaming on the magazine's website,  MonsterChildren.com .

Mike D and  Adam "Ad-Roc" Horovitz  have retired the Beasties Boys name since  Adam "MCA" Yauch 's death in 2012, but Mike D continues to create music -- he  scored a fashion show  last year for the fashion house Kenzo, and  remixed Portugal. the Man's "Modern Jesus" single  in November.
