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.
Trekked our way down to the WHERE IS IT? premier in DTLA. WHERE Is It? is a full length Active Army skateboarding film by Marque Cox. Here are some photos from that night.

The final stop for Penny Skateboard‘s “Viva Vacation Tour” was at Lincoln Skatepark in Los Angeles. We had some good times with a couple slalom and high jump contests. All in one, fun in the Sun! Everybody left with a Penny board!
Here’s what you missed out on:
The Hundreds X The Seventh Letter collection’s made up of a few tees and snapbacks. The collection features three original graphics , including reworks of The Hundreds’ Adam Bomb logo which are individually created by five of the The Seventh Letter artists; Eklips, Ewok, Revok, Saber and Rime.

The collection is available here at Activerideshop.com
The “Make Art Make Friends” art show at Think Tank Gallery happened last Friday night in Downtown L.A. It was great seeing all the homies who came out for support!

Last week we took to the rooftops of Los Angeles for our Active women’s Holiday Photo Shoot. Check out photos from what went on behind the scenes.
Every Sunday the Fairfax Flea Market is held at Fairfax High on Melrose Ave. I try to make it out to the great mix of antiques, and rare seen vendors as much as I can! This past Sunday I really scored and walked out with a vintage YSL purse for $20, a 1980’s Minolta camera for $35 (totally works), a Leadbelly vinyl for $5, and some cut off shorts for $6!! Talk about a steal. The flea market has a great variety of vintage furniture, clothing, antiques, collectibles, and all around fun. I prefer the Melrose Trading Post because the crowds are never big, it is a woping $2 to get in, and the vendors are sure to deliver. Next time your in the LA area on a Sunday morning stop by Fairfax High and check out the great deals the Melrose Trading Post has to offer!
But most of all I love finding diamonds in the rough (especially shoes) at the Melrose Trading post and pairing them with new Fall pieces from Active . Check out how I wear them all together! And stop by Active for new Fall arrivals from brands like Obey, Volcom, RVCA, and more!
The Museum of Contemporary Art in LA is hosting a fabulous mix of street artists from around the world in a new venue in Little Tokyo downtown. Work will be up until August 8th, and is definitely a must do for the Summer time! If you love street art, the skate culture that has evolved from it, and a mixture of unique artists, this exhibit is for you. I went down on opening night and snapped some shots of my favorite stuff. As a little hint, it is free every Monday from 11am to 5pm, so head down and check it out – you only have a little over a week left!
