Watching this really makes me wanna go outside and skate… it should really make you leave this computer screen after you watch! Thanks Andrew Reynolds & BAKER for keeping it real!
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.
It was the second year anniversary for Volume 4. The best place for this was at the infamous BLACK bar in L.A. Kicking out the jams that night with the LSDJ‘s (Nuge, Gabe, J.Roy) and turned it up even more with The Blackouts (Atiba & Ako Jefferson). Congrats to Don “Nuge” Nguyen, Sammy Baca, & all the Baker Boys homies on the anniversary. Live Heavy, Travel Light. LISTEN TO VOLUME 4!
When the conversation came up about creating a capsule, Andrew was surprised to learn that the slate was clean; he could create and curate anything he wanted for the collection.
Trips from the Shake Junt team van “Skate Tank” all gathered into one big epic montage. A 3 part series on Thrasher, being released onto DVD soon after. Full VX, just makes it a true Baker/Shake Junt classic. A night to remember filled with the raddest mini ramp session & all the homies. Thanks Steve Hernandez @ Baker Boys for the invite!
I’m assuming you know by now what pho is… if not here’s a quick breakdown: Pho is a Vietnamese comfort food. Basically it’s noodle soup with meat (or no meat if preferred) as well as street basil leaves and bean sprouts. You might add some chopped up jalapeno if you want a little spice in your life, mixed in with hoison sauce and chili paste… add some egg rolls on your order, why not? Good for those cold days or if you just want to eat some noodles and soup. Active pro, Don Nguyen (a Viet himself) eats pho all the time!
