Active getting involved where it counts. The industrial/port city of Wilmington, CA was the back drop of the Ambassador Series Launch for 2008. They bring together companies, celebs, and community together to impact youth in a real positive way!
The skaters in Wilmington have needed a skate park update! They had some modular ramps before and now Spohn-Ranch made the legit upgrade thanks to the efforts of all of the Companies who got involved like; Active, Red Bull, Nike SB, Gibson Guitars, Emu, and the Skateboard Mag! We’ll done gang.
Ambassador Series brought out skate Celebs like Paul Rodriguez, Daewon Song, Lizard King, and hip hop bruiser Chino Xl. Even some MTV’s Real World celebrities like Will Gil and that one other guy. The girls went crazy for them and the kids were stoked to see Paul cut the ribbon to the park and put on a little demo with Lizard King for the massive 3,000 plus turnout! Active and Plan B put on one hell of a product toss to end the event. Big thanks to all the suits who pushed this thing through! Ya did good!
