10th Annual Active Mammoth Trip 2012

For the 10th year Active Ride Shop dragged its top players to Mammoth for late season fun in the sun and snow. Players were treated to Oakley’s poker night at Lakanukie and amazing live performance by Ezekiel band the Fling. By the way, they saved the party weekend because Neon Indian had to cancel last minute. GO Mark Willingham for pulling strings like a bowse! Partied out Active heads arouse each morning to Analog/Gravis prepared bagels and Mimosa’s and Sabre got down with Bloody’s to put the pep back in their step, so heads could shred. Another highlight of the weekend was Matix Savage Games which featured a brutal obstacle course of tricycling, pogo sticking, beer bonging and pie eating… oh yeah these boys and girls snowboarded too.

4th Annual Hippy Killer Hoedown 2012 Photos!

It was a nice sunny day after a rainy one at the Wild West Arena in Winchester, CA. The beauty behind the lifestyle of doing it yourself & building your own is the story behind all these choppers, bobbers, & hot rods. This can relate to the skateboarding world in so many ways, that’s why most of these people are skateboarders or have a history in skateboarding! Despite of all the different cliques, garage shops, & motorcycle clubs, they were all gathered here for the love of what they live… to ride! It’s a close knit community. In the end, they were all “here for the beer!”
