Salba's 50th Birthday

Salba hit the big 50, and they celebrated with a party at the Fontana Skatepark. The Flame Throwers (his band) and the Skatetanic Rednecks provided the live music, and the Taco Dudes hooked up tacos for all. Malba, Omar Hassan, Justin Strubing, Josh Borden, Screech, Josh Mattson, Tristen Rennie, and a bunch of Badlanders came to celebrate and skate with Salba. 50 years old and he's been skating 40 of them. Happy birthday, down for life!
