Converse X Chocolate Skate Jam
In celebration of Kenny Anderson’s new Converse X Chocolate shoe, the guys teamed up for a classic parking-lot skate jam at Furnace skate shop in Buena Park. Tacos, ramps, beers and bros—what's not to love? —Ben Karpinski
Arrived just in time to see Hager Brothers Solutions putting the finishing touches on the obstacles. Manual that!
Tom Remillard tests the waters with a front blunt. She's seaworthy, mates
Then it was straight to the skies. Lien on me…
Meanwhile, across the parking lot—
The man of the hour, Kenny A, taking his pivot to fakie. All style, that guy
Classic Kenny back noseblunt. Check out those shoes!
Frankie sure as Heck doesn’t have a snowboarder back 360
Ryan Townley snaps a tré flip over the stool. Just say no to the yo
Plant Food For People kept the plant-based tacos coming all night
“Kenny, there is no way all this is vegan” “Jackfruit, Tom, all jackfruit.”
Furnace lifer, Billy Davenport

Then Kenny and crew busted out a stack of decks for the best tricks off the kicker. Eddie sparked it off with a kickflip
Eric Lord made this backside flip his servant
In the end, everyone who showed up was a winner…
…and Kenny became an honorary Peak Park local
Only thing left to do was have a few brew dogs
And maybe figure out how to get that quarterpipe back to your house
Thanks for the epic night, Cons, Chocolate, Furnace and Plant Food For People. Parking-lot parties will never go out of style
