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!

    The good times roll on and on, from the streets to the pool, and every park in between. With a crew this stacked, you know what to expect.

    New Zealand is a dreamland. Part one kicks off in the gnarly concrete pits before Grant seals the deal on a mountainous rail attack.

    There was too much heavy shredding for just one edit, so we made another. Thank you for the good times, Floripa. Until we meet again...
