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!

Here’s a little story to where the name GAMO came from Guy Mariano himself:
“GAMO in Gamoflage came from an old graffiti nick name and stuck around with a lot of the Girl and Chocolate fam. GAMO stands for Guy Anthony Mariano One. I was always drawn to graffiti art because of its similarities to skateboarding. Skating around a city looking for spots basically to express ourselves in some art form whether it be a trick or piece. Everyone leaving their mark in one way or another. I like the name and idea behind Gamoflauge because it represents everything I stand for now. With Lakai and Active joining forces in this shoe pack, these Gamoflage soles will be serving skaters everywhere.”

How often do you get to meet your favorite pro’s? Meeting them has always been anticipating yet intimidating, especially with legends like Guy Mariano, Eric Koston, Mike Carroll, Brian Anderson, Ishod Wair, Andrew Brophy, & Tyler Bledsoe on the line-up!… The Fourstar Team came through Active Long Beach on Saturday and drew in an endless crowd! Many fans of the Fourstar team came from all over Southern California (and who knows where else) just to see their favorite pros. Everyone who attended received a raffle ticket to win a whole Fourstar collection of either a Guy, Koston, Carroll, or O’Neill line. Thanks to everybody who came out! Here are some photos from that day:
