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.

    Warning! Aggressive, messy and chaotic! Larbfest celebrates the bands that provide the soundtrack to our skateboarding. Having a session before the gig is a standard ritual, but this time we turned it into a little mission from Minneapolis to Milwaukee, harvesting parks and spots in between gigs. Turn it up and check it out! —Hitz
