Burnout: Ten Down
Dekline footwear, self-deprecating, skater-owned footwear brand celebrated ten years last night with tacos and good times.
Oh, and free beer, too.
You know Hambone was down.
Celebration temporarily sidelined by the new mag.
'I must ollie something even taller ...' Jaws thinks to himself.
The Sinclairs get a scolding from Dekline head honcho, Kevin Furtado.
McSween and Culbertson, glowing behind the scenes over there.
Rodent is backing our SOTY decision while Barnett is holding out for that Malto win.
Spencer and Dakota keeping it classy at the bar.
Speaking of, Patty Burke!
Kevin's favorite image out of the history gallery.
Barker coming through. Speech time.
Swank's speech was nothing if not uplifting.
While Mike saved his graces for the team and their upcoming video.
Merlino even made a speech!
Ex-Black Box sales alumni. Onward and upward.
'Round about beer number three things start getting chummy. Don searches for a lap.
And then shortly after, shit gets punchy.
But always with love.
And in case you were asking, Joey Ragali is NOT a serial killer or some sort of super villain.
Though I see why you might think that.
Finally, the Dekline babes.
Congrats Dekline! See you on the way down!
