Handplants and Channel Blasters


Words & photos: Rhino

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.

    Some bowl comps generate so much energy that all the skaters get electrified and push each other. This one was insane. Here’s Chris Russell, Greyson Fetcher, Rowan Zorilla, Jack Fardell, Grant Taylor, Ronnie Sandoval, Kevin Kowalski, Pedro Barros, and many others.
