Highways and Byways

Words & photos by Ben Karpinski

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.

Thanks Michael!

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.

    We'll never know what line Marius had in mind here because his limbs get tangled on the first move and he gets thumped.
