After an avalanche of top-shelf shredding, Rowan Zorilla of the Shep Dawgs gets the pro nod.
Just another successful day on the streets.
Hours of traffic later… behind the velvet rope at Black.
Oh yeah, this is the right place.
Group shot triptych.
Good looking bunch, right?
Almost squeezed 'em all in.
Shhh! Movie's starting.
The warm glow of anticipation. Dustin knows what's coming.
Tight flick. You watched this thing yet?
And then the crush of congrats.
Somewhere in that wriggling mass Rowan Zorilla forfeited his amateur status!
For chrissakes, let 'em get hydrated!
There we go.
When in Rome.
I think this is the 'acceptance' stage.
The Boss's calming hand.
Yep, he was gonna be just fine.
Then Dan Lu went pro!
This is when I shoulda switched to taking photos with my telephone.
You guys get the picture.
'Who is that guy?' 'He's …. my friend.'
A father's embrace.
I can't believe they got Pushead to draw the graphics!
Yeah, yeah. He's pro. Big deal.
Media, at the ready.
O'Side was there. The good ones, anyway.
The Hermans and Beagle's better half! Good to see y'all!
Tight bros from way back, Regan and The Mule.
That's right. Like a goddamn premonition.
Management types and upstarts.
An Lu, spooked by them graphics.
Lovell and Green, my Propeller friends.
These things are exhausting!
Kru and crew.
BB and Baca settle the score.
Match point: Baca!
Cute couple alert. Lizard was babysitting.
'Let's do a silly one!' Sammy always says.
Sorry again about that email, Doug.
Nuge does his impression of Richie in a bar fight.
Peanut's prophecy – 'Vista still rips!'
He's not wrong.
Which Shep will go pro next?
Meanwhile, we count O'Side Garza among the converted. Hell yeah.
You can imagine where it went from here. Congrats Rowan! Thanks Baker fools!
