This Saturday, Aug. 17 at Active Brea. Matix is coming in with their mobile Workshop to get your Matix Denim tailored fit for free and your personal garments!
Also, if you spend $50 on Matix gear you will get a free limited Matix x Active tee!
Last weekend the Active crew headed up to Mammoth Mountain for a little adventure. Although it’s technically a trip for the guys, this year the ladies decided we’d have a presence as well. It was an awesome 3 days full of laughing, snowboarding, great company, and the first annual Savage Games!
We all piled into a tour bus and made the treck up to the mountains. About half way up back luck struck and our bus broke down! A few minor repairs and we were on our way.
We made it to Mammoth at about 8:00pm on Sunday night. Oakley set up a rad poker game at Lakanukie bar, a great spot in town. We then headed over to Hyde bar to watch The Fling, thanks to Ezekiel, jam the night away with great tunes!!
The next day was the Savage Games tournament (thanks to Matix and Beer Savage!) where we broke up into teams and battled it out in everything from beer bongs to eating pies as quick as we could.
Overall the trip was a major success, and we couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. Until next year Mammoth!!

Hey! Shmoo you! It’s time to get that doodling you’ve been doing in class to good use! Here’s your chance to win a signed Mike Anderson Krooked deck as well as some of his signature clothing from Matix! Heck, we’ll even throw in a set of his own Spitfire Wheels for you!
All the managers & assistant managers at each of our retaillocations met at the headquarters for a yearly meeting discussing & reviewing important topics and new things to come into stores. Afterwards, a special lunch was provided by our friends over at Matix.
“Oh yes it’s LADIE’S night, and the feelings right!”
Last Saturday, Active Ride Shop threw an awesome party for the ladies. All 21 stores hosted a special shopping night for our women’s customers, and at Chino we did it big this year! It was a special night full of sugar, sparkling cider, discounts, and more! We danced the night away to a DJ, and handed out giveaways like hot-cakes. We even had talented artists come down and paint TOMS for the customers. And did I mention that all women’s clothing was 25% off?! All in all, it was a successful night, full of fun and shopping!

Last Friday night we were out at the Irvine Spectrum for the second annual Rack Rave event, a part of Style Week OC. The event was awesome with over 10 other retailers coming out to support the night’s festivities as well with trunk shows, games, prizes, make-overs, styling – not to mention the candy bar! Our friends over at Matix joined us and brought out Matix PLINKO where guys and gals could walk away with FREE product! Check out photos from the event, and be sure to join us tomorrow night at the Irvine Spectrum where Active will be showcased in the OC Surf Sport Runway Show!
I cleaned out my closet the other night and, by the end of it, I had a huge trash bag of unwanted clothes. Instead of tossing them in the trash, I decided to head down to Buffalo Exchange in downtown Fullerton. Buffalo Exchange is a consignment store that buys and sells used clothes, accessories and shoes. So, your “trash” can simply become someone else’s “treasure.” After class, I hauled my old clothes over there and hoped for a couple of bucks. I ended up walking away with $66 dollars! I found some cute feather clips and a vintage looking tee and now I’m off to go shop at Active with the rest of the moolah (scroll down to see the new Fall items I just picked up at Active!)!
Next time you’re thinking about throwing away some of your old clothes, think again! Take a trip down to Buffalo Exchange – I promise it’ll be worth it.
I even found this super cool old Active Tee!
Here are some of my favorite fall items that I picked up today at Active!
Almost Time Hoodie by Timing

China Rose Satchel by Obey

“I don’t always wear pants… but when I do, I wear denim.” Ha!
There’s nothing like a good pair of jeans…(especially on the ladies!) But when I find a good pair of pants, I wear those things for weeks at a time. I’m stoked on Slash’s signature jean from Altamont right now…Those things have lasted a super long time…
