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.
Tyler Pakstis won the Enter-To-Win Lakai x Active contest online. He won a day with Active & Lakai Pro, Guy Mariano. Took him out to breakfast, stopped by Active HQ, then to Active Rancho, Lakai Warehouse, Girl HQ, & topped off the day with some fancy EATalian food! Continue reading Day With Guy Mariano
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!!!
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.”
