Girl/Chocolate #prettysweet Trunk Boyz Demo video!

It was a pretty sweet Trunk Boyz demo here at the Active Park. After having minds blown by the “Pretty Sweet” film, many fans of Girl & Chocolate came out of their way to the headquarters in good ol’ middle-of-nowhere Mira Loma, California to see their favorite team riders shred in person. Needless to say, Raven Tershy, Elijah Berle, Cory Kennedy, Mike Mo, & Sean Malto demolished rather than demonstrated the park! While the OG’s: Rick Howard, Mike Carroll, & Chris Roberts watched on. The Active Ride Shop team riders, also known as the “Active Army” were also throwing down hammers with the Trunk Boyz. The #prettysweet hashtag made its way through the night as the fans had their photo ops with the team. After the demo, everyone had the chance to meet & greet the team through the autograph signing and even more photo ops. Thanks to Sam Smyth & Jason Callaway at Girl for coming through as well as getting some of the team to the park after a long trip around the world!

Also, check out some more photos HERE!

BIG thanks to Rick Howard, Mike Carroll, Raven Tershy, Cory Kennedy, Elijah Berle, Sean Malto, Chris Roberts, & Mike Mo for cruising through, signing autographs, shredding, & stoking out the fans!

The STITCH: Spring Break in Phoenix

For Spring Break I decided to pack my bags and take a road trip down to Phoenix, AZ to show some love and support for our boys on the Active AM team at Phx AM. After a long 6 hour drive, I was greeted by 95 degree weather and beautiful skies. AZ showed me a good time and I’ll definitely be back.


We out here!

First thing on the agenda: backyard mini ramp session.

Phx AM was the next day and, despite the hot weather, all of the riders killed it! YEEE Active!
