Big thanks to everybody that came and all the brands for the support of skateboarding!
Major thanks to Monster for the new park set-up which included a vert wall, handrail, four block, and hubba.

The STITCH: Ladies in Mammoth!

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.

The Witchy Women team killed it, we were the only girl team and faced the competition full force in our punk rock get ups!

Ready for Summer?

Memorial Day is behind us and ahead lies the season of backyard BBQ’s, days at the beach, the OC fair, and tall glasses of lemonade.  That’s right – SUMMER!  It’s right around the corner and if you’re not prepared, well, Active’s got you covered!

The RVCA Luna Tank is a simple piece you can throw on with your favorite jeans, or over your bikini when you head to the beach.

Active’s very own Rosalita Dress has a great fit you can dress up, or dress down.

The RVCA Ferris Skirt is a must have this summer – you can wear it with just about anything.

I love TOMS’ new Rope Sole shoe.  A twist on their classic canvas shoe – they are so cute, and as always, incredibly comfortable.

Of course accessories are a must…

The Dude by Sabre is a fun take on a classic wayfarer style.

The Nixon Time Teller P is a bright splash of color for your wrist at an unbeatable price.
