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.
A ton of raging Emerica fans rolled up to Active Chino Hills to meet their favorite team riders. A solid turn out at the shop. The demo was even more intense. Right when we rolled up to Ayala Park, non stop shredding was going on. The park was packed with many onlookers watching the Emerica team shred. It was almost hard to keep track of what every rider was doing as tricks were unpredictable at some times.
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.
Once again, the Emerica team came, saw, and not only conquered the Active Park, but tore it up into pieces (figuratively). When we talk about demos here, we mean pure destruction, a demolition; or one might say, “Demolición“. With names like, Andrew Reynolds, Bryan Herman, Leo Romero, Jeremy Leabres, Justin Figueroa, Jerry Hsu, lest not we forget the legend of Heath Kirchart, here in the building, you’re bound for a real treat. Anyone that was there that day left with their minds blown, like they just seen Made In Emerica Chapter 1 or This is Skateboarding, Stay Gold, etc. So for this piece, we gotta add the Emerica filter, “green is fo’ tha money and gold is fo’ the honey!!!”
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!
