Burnout: PROWAN


After an avalanche of top-shelf shredding, Rowan Zorilla of the Shep Dawgs gets the pro nod. 


1Just another successful day on the streets.

2Hours of traffic later… behind the velvet rope at Black. 

3Oh yeah, this is the right place. 

4Group shot triptych. 

5
6Good looking bunch, right?

7Almost squeezed 'em all in. 

8Shhh! Movie's starting. 

9The warm glow of anticipation. Dustin knows what's coming. 

10Tight flick. You watched this thing yet?

11And then the crush of congrats. 

12Somewhere in that wriggling mass Rowan Zorilla forfeited his amateur status!

13
14
15For chrissakes, let 'em get hydrated!

16There we go. 

17When in Rome.

18I think this is the 'acceptance' stage. 

19The Boss's calming hand. 

20Yep, he was gonna be just fine. 

21Product toss!

22Then Dan Lu went pro!

23For sure!

24This is when I shoulda switched to taking photos with my telephone. 

25You guys get the picture. 

26Killer grouping. 

27Yep. 

28'Who is that guy?' 'He's …. my friend.'

29A father's embrace. 

30I can't believe they got Pushead to draw the graphics!

31Yeah, yeah. He's pro. Big deal. 

32Media, at the ready. 

33Locals mostly. 

34O'Side was there. The good ones, anyway. 

35DLX South!

36The Hermans and Beagle's better half! Good to see y'all!

37Tight bros from way back, Regan and The Mule. 

38Bob Long!

39That's right. Like a goddamn premonition. 

40Management types and upstarts. 

41An Lu, spooked by them graphics. 

42Lovell and Green, my Propeller friends. 

43These things are exhausting!

44Right?

45Kru and crew. 

46BB and Baca settle the score. 

47Match point: Baca!

48Cute couple alert. Lizard was babysitting. 

49'Let's do a silly one!' Sammy always says. 

50Sorry again about that email, Doug. 

51Nuge does his impression of Richie in a bar fight. 

52Peanut's prophecy – 'Vista still rips!'

53He's not wrong. 

54Which Shep will go pro next?

55Meanwhile, we count O'Side Garza among the converted. Hell yeah. 

56You can imagine where it went from here. Congrats Rowan! Thanks Baker fools!

    The REAL van reached the end of the line on the Actions REALized Tour at the 5th Annual Roll For Rob, to support East Coast skate community pillar Rob Pontes through his fight with ALS. This year the crews at Theory and Civil skateshops hosted the event at Skaters Edge Indoor Park. The support for Rob Pontes and his family was amazing to see and everyone had a good time. We love you, Rob!
