Smith grind? Fuck no, Losi grind. Big Al lays into some concrete cope at Del Mar. Right hand rollin' up the window, pushin' from the back into this grind—first hit. Fuckin' awesome; I can still hear it if I close my eyes and dream. "Allen Losi is gnarlitude." Photo: Mofo

    Legends and homies alike made their way out to RVCA's headquarters Friday night to welcome Christian Hosoi to their ever-expanding team. A heated bowl jam ensued, in honor of Ivan "Pops" Hosoi's 75th birthday. Add to that some artwork by Mark Oblow, tunes from Tommy G, free grub from Pizzanista and complimentary cold ones from PBR and the locals were in for a treat!
