Elwood and Active teamed up to bring our one of the best skateboarding teams in the world and some great promotions to Southern California for Earth Day, April 22nd. The entire Elwood Team including Dan Drehobl, Kenny Anderson, Anthony Pappalardo, Vincent Alvarez, Marquis Henry, and Silas Baxter Neal were all in the house.
The day was long and successful. It started out with meeting up at Kenny Anderson’s house where the team skated Kenny’s pool. From Kenny’s the posse took the WVO powered Mercedes and two Toyota Prius’ to Channel Street Skatepark in San Pedro. From the skatepark the Elwood team and crew headed over to Long Beach Active for a signing and a check in to see how the promotions were going. If you brought in an old pair of jeans, you’d get a discount on a new pair of Elwoods. If you brought in an old pair of Elwood jeans, you’d get a NEW pair of Elwood jeans, free of cost. Elwood also brought out a ton of stuff for give-a-ways and hooked up a ton of people who came out for Earth Day celebrations.
