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.
