Black Label Day In SJ


Photos & words: Schmitty | Video: P-Stone

The Black Label van took it up North Friday night to the home of The Kid Jason Adams and Peter Raffin to premiere their new video, God Save The Label. P-Stone went down early to skate with Jason and some of the bros, and then we all went to the Blank Club to check out the video and tilt back some bevies.

P-Stone got down to SJ early and got a tour of the town from Jason Adams.

First stop, Louie Barletta's mini.

Nagy almost forgot the video, no big deal.

Old pals, P-Stone gives props to Chet who filmed his whole part at Burnside.

Outside the bar, some kid got on his knees to praise Corpsey. Just another night in SJ... Black Label Day In SJ

    Firing Line: Luan Oliveira
    The first thing that stands out with Luan's skating is the raw power, everything is popped and stomped with authority. This line probably didn't take him long, but we’re not sure too much stuff does.

    The Summer Tour has become a lost tradition in skateboarding, but we joined forces with the HUF squad to cover as much ground in the USA as possible. Hot temps, hot crew, nothing but good times.

    Doom Sayers Interview
    Some people get insecure when they get interviewed and they keep their answers short and “safe.” Not Omar. He lets it all out and has interesting views on skating and the world around us.
