#FresGNAR

When we were trying to figure out a hashtag for the week trip to Fresno, Eric thought of the idea for “FresGNAR“. I looked it up on Instagram to see if it’s been hashtagged yet… The answer is, no. So there you have it, the Active FresGNAR trip was born!

Last week, we were traveling back and forth from the fort at Element Skate Camp to Fresno for the past 3-4 days leading up to the grand opening of Active Fresno. Along with were the circus acts: Denzel White, Ryan Alvero, Greg Green, and filmer, Darn Shane from Texas. Eric held down the navigation & everything else you can think of.  Every afternoon we would drive down to a skate park in Fresno/Clovis area and throw a BBQ, giveaway some free gear, & shred with all the locals. Aside from the many photos taken, here are 40 that can summarize the trip as well with a recap video of the trip.
