Handplants and Channel Blasters

Down south has a ton of spots to skate. Ronnie Sandoval and Chris Russell came down form the south bay to hook up with Tom Remillard and Willis Kimbel.  They tapped into some of the spots - skateparks, ditchs, backyard bowls, and mini-ramps and ended the mission at the Birdman’s facility. Not bad for the weatherman claiming two days of rain.

    Those two-wheeled machines on display commanded attention, but the heavy action was the four-wheeled assault on the vert ramp. From young bucks like Ronnie to the OGs Cab and Bucky, this session was revved all the way up.
