Active Pro team rider Riley Hawk takes the Crail Couch for a spin.
Following after the PUSH premier, I remembered there was another event going on down the street at Paper Agency Gallery in Los Angeles. I looked on my instagram and there you have it, a Crailtap group photo exhibition with some, if not all, of my favorite photographers/documenters in skateboarding. Featuring: Aaron Meza, Andy Mueller, Ben Colen, Eric Anthony, Jerry Hsu, & Sam Smyth. Peep the flicks from the night.
It was fun while it lasted… fast times in Carlsbad with Team BK & the crew. An 80’s themed camp (no one got the memo) at the beach and fun out at the lagoon. Ain’t here for a long time, here for a good time. Learn it, Know it, Live it.
Celebrating 20 full years of Chocolate Skateboards at Art Share L.A.! Taking a trip down memory lane with all the series of decks from right when Chocolate started, photos, memorabilia, & what not. It was awesome celebrating it with most of the OG’s from the team and the people behind it all.
We were at the Gundo the other night celebrating the release of Active & Girl Pro, Guy Mariano‘s exclusive deck! The Girl & Chocolate family were also there in support with a signing and hanging out with their fans and having staring contests. Luckily, we didn’t leave our wallets in El Segundo (A Tribe Called Quest reference). Here are some photos from that night!

Went out to Jumbo Rocks Campgrounds at Joshua Tree for a day with Lakai and some of the Active fam from each shop who were slangin’ the most Lakai shoes (and who’s schedule permits). The weather was not too hot, not too cold. In fact, it was the best place to be. Isolated from society and no cell phone service (a lot of #latergrams.) We were climbing up on some rough rocks but well worth the view in the end. The sights were unbelievable, sorta like being at California Adventure in Disneyland… but the real thing! It was a great getaway before the Holiday season. Thank you BK & Culver for letting me tag along and document this!!!
Everyone from Active Ride Shop got to skate the Crailtap park October 17 6-8. Everyone killed it and had a great time. Special thanks to Crailtap, Girl, Chocolate, and Royal for letting us skate the park and a special thanks to Joey Coleman for setting up! Filmed/Edited by Cody Hyman from Active Thousand Oaks!
