As part of our new “All You Can Eat” series, we teamed up with the famous Howlin’ Ray’s Nashville Hot Chicken in Chinatown, Los Angeles. Here is a video recap & photos from our special invite only dinner event that included limited tee’s, hats, pins, & decks for the release. Also check out the #activeAYCE hashtag on Instagram for more pics!
Girls in skateboarding isn’t news to us or anyone for that matter and for that reason we decided to host Ladies Skate Night at the warehouse last week. We want to continue to break down those gender barriers within skateboarding and strive to make people see that skateboarding is gender-less.
The event could not have been a success without the help of Spice Girls Skate, a group of three friends helping to promote girls in skateboarding. Also, a special thanks to Adidas, Element Women’s, and the Poseiden Foundation for helping sponsor the event. Make sure to give them all a follow on Instagram to stay up to date with the progression of women’s skateboarding!
ETN came out with a new series on their live network. We got in on the sesh with Active Pro Chris Gregson along with a bunch of other heavies that rolled through for the ramp jam contest show. Cody Lockwood won the overall contest. Peep below to see photos from that night!
The Girl & Chocolate team came & crashed the active park! Featuring: Mike Carroll, Simon Bannerot, Tyler Pacheco, Yonnie Cruz, Sean Malto, James Capps, Jerry Hsu, Niels Bennett, Chris Roberts, Mike Mo Capaldi, and Rick Howard. Watch the video and scroll down to check out some of the photos from that night.
To celebrate the launch of the Nixon x Bones Brigade watches, Nixon & Active Ride Shop hosted a Meet & Greet with the Bones Brigade at the Irvine Spectrum along with a photo gallery curated by Grant Brittain with a zine for the occasion. It’s not often you get the whole team all in one place. Definitely a blast from the past hanging out with the Bones Brigade team with the old & young fans! Check out more photos below from the day.
We’re stoked to be having Illegal Civilization here at Active!
Fun Fact: Mikey & the crew first had their premier at our Burbank location back in January 2012 with most of the Burbank Army team riders at the time. Illegal Civ is now online and at our Burbank, Santa Monica, Riverside, & Irvine Spectrum locations. Check out some photos we took from the night they came through at Active Burbank for the launch!
Good times and good vibes are exactly what you would expect from a Bro Style photo show and they provided plenty of that, along with free beer from Lagunitas. The gallery walls were filled with photos from team riders and their bros and as the clock struck 6 o’clock the gallery was flooded with people eager to take in the music. Girl Tears got the crowd going and even though Leo Romero was slightly handicap’d he and the rest of Travesura put on a great performance as always. Frontman Josh Harmony alongside Grant Hatfield ended the night with a bang letting you know how awesome their band Freckles really is.
It was LAABF weekend so lots of art shows were going on at night. Tino Razo had a book launch & photo show one of the nights, a gallery filled tons of epic photos of backyard pools & skateboarding. Here are a couple photos I took on my film camera from that night. Make sure to get yourself a copy of his book!
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Grand Opening day of Active Menifee! Following the grand opening was the ever spectacular annual Toy Machine Halloween Demo that was insane as well! Peep the recaps below.
Active is stoked to be opening their thirtieth location: Menifee! Join us for the festivities on Oct. 29!
We headed out to Beach Goth thanks to the homies at The Observatory for the plug! Check out some photos I took those two days. We went late the first night and the next day rained, but we still had a blast.
