Cruzin' Down South with Santa Cruz

Cruzin' Down South with Santa Cruz
Words & photos: Rhino

The Santa Cruz team made the trip down to San Diego and I got to take them around for a day. A quick stop by RT 44 Skate Shop and off to the streets and ditches with some cold ones. We finished the day at the infamous Home Ave ditch with some tricks and cold ones.
