BFF’s at the TF Video with Malto, Mikey & Manny!

The BFF’s at the TF contest has been over for a while, but with such busy schedules it was hard to get everyone together! Just the other week the winner Manny Guevara and his friend rolled out to Sole Technology to meet up with Sean Malto and Mikey Taylor to skate the Training Facility and grab a bunch of free Etnies gear. Congrats to Manny Guevara and check out the video!

Which One’s Ping? Art Show & Party Photos!

Todd Bratrud Paddles

Check out the photos from the Which One’s Ping? Art Show we had last Thursday at Krochet Kids HQ in Costa Mesa. Colt 45 came through with a ton of beer and we even had a ton of free Sake for everyone. Todd Bratrud, Eric McHenry, Ed Templeton, Deanna Templeton, Lance Mountain, Michael Hsiung, Russ Pope, Tristan Ellis, Danielle Hassan, Corey Cady, Deluxe Artists, Chris Pastras among others all painted ping pong paddles and also displayed original artwork and a few of them even did installations for the show on the walls. The place was packed and our friend Kohl from Krochet Kids ended up winning the Ping Pong Tournament and the surfboard that went along with it! Thanks to everyone involved; Ambiguous, Krochet Kids and all the Artists!

Crossroads and ASR Photos!

Crossroads and ASR were both last week and tons of people showed up to Crossroads to be a part of the event and to bro down in the name of skateboarding. Jamie Thomas and Black Box played host to Crossroads again and it seems that this new show will only grow more and more throughout the coming years which is great. Check out the photos from both events and we will see you all next time!

Daryl Angel Blogs – Europe to Portland

Active Rider Daryl Angel sent me some photos much like Chris Haslam did recently to show you what he’s been up to. Within the last month or so, Daryl went on a two week camping trip all throughout Europe with the Habitat Team. The RV trip started in Frankfurt and ended in Berlin. Shortly after he returned from the Euro trip, he shot over to Portland for another one week camping trip again with his Habitat comrades. Peep the photos of everyone from Silas Baxter Neil, Reda, Marius Syvanen and more.

Thanks for the photos Daryl!

Chris Haslam – New Zealand Trip Photos

Chris Haslam and a handful of other skaters including Active Pro Kenny Anderson, Cairo Foster, Keegan Sauder, and more went on a trip to New Zealand not too long ago and biked over 300 miles! Chris sent me some photos that he is allowing me to share with the world. Hopefully he will send me photos more often since he is the ultimate world traveler and all.

Chris is currently in Berlin, so if you spot him out there tell him ‘Greetings from America!’
