Here's more photos and footage from this year's SOTY party. This was the first venue in years to not give us a permanent ban. Thanks to everyone who showed, the bands, sponsors Monster and HoodieBuddie, and most of all, David Gonzalez.
From groms to glam, lurkers to legends, and rockers to rap heads, all basked in a sun-filled stoke of an afternoon filled with firecrackers, boards, burgers, and fine sisters dolled up in their stars-and-bars best.
Skateboarding is the new religion worldwide, Thrasher is the Bible, and whether you know it or not, our bloodline runs right through Latin America. This video is only the beginning of something massive. Estan listos?
