We brought the Endless Summer party along the next day to Active Escondido for a team signing. All hungover, or maybe not. Just as long as it was after noon then I think we were good. But the party didn’t stop there! Thanks for cruising out everyone! The line up: Bryan Herman, Windsor James, Don ‘Nuge’ Nguyen, Brian ‘Slash’ Hansen, Riley Hawk, Chris Gregson, Collin Provost, Jon Dickson, Justin ‘Figgy’ Figueroa, & Jeremy Leabres!
It’s party time! Our good friends from Psockadelic had done us a good one with this Endless Summer party at the Pour House in Oceanside! Everybody was there, your mom, your dad, even your ex’s! Radio Moscow kicked ass as always with their psychedelic blues and surprisingly Figgy’s new side band, WRIT opened up the place with a bang! The first of many awesome times with Psockadelic, cheers fellas!
We jumped our way on over to Active Riverside for a special event with our friends from Theeve Trucks. There was a ton of pizza, guest appearances by Theeve pro’s Anthony Schultz, Jordan Hoffart, & Forrest Edwards! Thanks to all the Riverside locals for cruising out to this fun sesh! MIGHT AS WELL JUMP!
To celebrate the release of the new Hook Ups x Etnies collab, the homies at Etnies invited the selected shops to a dinner at Jeremy Klein‘s go-to Korean BBQ spot, Cham Sut Gol in Garden Grove, CA. We definitely got stuffed. Thanks to Jeremy & Etnies for an awesome dinner!
Following after the PUSH premier, I remembered there was another event going on down the street at Paper Agency Gallery in Los Angeles. I looked on my instagram and there you have it, a Crailtap group photo exhibition with some, if not all, of my favorite photographers/documenters in skateboarding. Featuring: Aaron Meza, Andy Mueller, Ben Colen, Eric Anthony, Jerry Hsu, & Sam Smyth. Peep the flicks from the night.
Two nights in a row at the Ace Hotel Theater in Downtown L.A. This time for the Berric’s Push premier. It featured 8 parts: Luan Oliveira, Ben Raybourn, Josh Matthews, Cody Cepeda, Ishod Wair, Leticia Bufoni, Trevor Colden, & Aaron “Jaws” Homoki. Each skateboarder had an introduction short-film before an actual video part filmed in 6 months with different filmers. The result is this. Here are photos from the premier that night and be sure to watch the series on The Berrics.
Transworld SKATEboarding‘s “Snap The Gap” presented by SUPRA contest went down the other day in front of the Agenda Trade Show in Long Beach. CA RampWorks built us an epic street gap replica for this best trick/long ollie throwdown. There was $2500 in cash to give out and the mayhem kicked off as soon as we opened the gates.

We got a new Active Pro team rider in the ranks. What seemed like only a skate jam & pizza party turned out to be Kyle Walker‘s surprise pro party for Real Skateboards. They even got his parents to come way out from Oklahoma to surprise him in a gnarly lookin’ van with his pro model & pizza. Here are some photos from that epic day. Congrats Kyle!
Last Saturday at Kingswell in Los Feliz, Almost Skateboards had their retrospective photo show featuring iconic photographs shot by Seu Trinh from the past 12 years with Almost. It was also a release party of a photo board series Seu did with Almost that came out recently. As if the free donuts and beer wasn’t enough: Rodney Mullen, Chris Haslam, Cooper Wilt, Justin Schulte, & Almost Alumni Torey Pudwill made an appearance. Past & Present always family in the Almost team. Lewis Marnell Forever…
When two badass companies collaborate like Spitfire & Deathwish, you get one big bang. The Baker Boys posse & Spitfire gathered at the local skate park, Sheldon Skate Plaza down the street to a large group of stoked out local shredders. Here are some photos from that day.
