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.

Ditch sidelines

Shuriken color coordinated

Ron Whaley knows how to party

E-Man feeling the Purple Haze

Watch them gang signs and blue kicks in the hood

    Antihero and Thrasher put on an invite-only contest at Lower Bobs to celebrate life of P-Stone. With a cast of characters that P-Stone knew and loved in attendance, the revs were at an all-time high and the skating and hijinx were top shelf. Thanks to everyone for coming out and keeping it PMA! Stone is smiling down, no doubt. —Joe Brook

    Lower Bottom in Oakland has the homegrown DIY spot with Preston’s grill. It was a fitting place to have an invite-only Thrasher and Antihero collab contest. From Royce and Ox to Red and Marty, it was all thriller no filler. –Jake Phelps

    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
