Got to jump in the van and go up to Santa Barbara with the Habitat team on their "Highways and Byways" tour.
Finally got to check out the Church of Skatan which is located in an actual old church.
Got the grand tour over at Powell. I managed to sneak off a few photos walking around.
They still cut all the bushing out by hand.
The dudes headed to the Santa Barbara park to shake some hands and kiss some babies.
Push Skateshop has an archive

Again, had to sneak off the photos but they had some heavies on the wall and I couldn't help it.
D. Gar met up mid way into the trip
Daryl Angel, switch ollie up six
What, you think they only show up at Baker demos?
8/28/2018International globetrotter Marius Syvanen lands in North Africa, shreds some sweet spots with his squad and helps put the finishing touches on a new skatepark. Solid trip!
8/23/2018With a nod to Jeremy Klein, the WKND boys hit the road Hook Ups style and put together a launch-ramp-infused tour, complete with a box for the top of the van and Willy Santos in tow. It’s called skateboarding. It’s supposed to be fun.
8/23/2018The WKND crew took a U-Haul full of ramps to the desert and things got weird. They may not have located Animal Chin but they found Josh Beagle so we’d call it a unanimous success. Warning: there will be nudity.
6/26/2018Any Austyn footage is golden and this Rough Cut is 17 minutes of pure, unfiltered shredding. He’s simply one of the best to ever do it.
6/22/2018The OJ's crew is thick, with enough styles and approaches to please even the saltiest skater haters. If you can’t find some joy in this Elite vid then you’re probably a closet scooterer.
