It’s really cool to see people come together to make their skate scene better. Matt Cantor, formerly of Control skatepark, and MIA skate shop partners Chris Williams and Ed Selego have joined forces to create the MIA SKATEPARK. On Saturday Feb. 18th the Adio and Planet Earth Clothing teams kicked open the doors with a huge grand opening demo. In attendance were Ed Selego, Bam Margera, Kenny Anderson, Jeremy Wray, Danny Montoya, Steve Nesser, Ryan Bobier, Ernie Torres, Nick Dompierre, Joey Brezinski, Chris Troy, and Guru Khalsa.

This February the Adio surf team headed down to the Tuamotu atolls to get away from the cold and find some perfect South Pacific reef passes. The crew was Taylor Knox, Timmy Curran, Mike Losness and Local Tahitian charger Raimana Van Bastolear. Raimana hooked us up on a 120ft luxury catamaran complete with a crew of 15 at our service. Images and a couple video clips will be posted on surfingthemag.com soon, and the full story in the upcoming travel issue of Surfing Magazine.
