Cab had a 50th Birthday party blow-out at the Vans Combi Bowl. There were tons of Steve’s friends and family skating and celebrating as well as music from The Faction and Agent Orange. Food, drink, hot rods, Love and Guts Artshow, and Skate Rock. Happy 50th Stevie!
It's a bit easier to strong-arm interviews with today's younger pros, but here's Jimmy Arrighi at the Vans Pool Party tangling with some legends who can hold their own including Cab, Hosoi, Grosso, Lucero, Agah, and many others.
Not a lot of skate companies last 20 years, much less keep it consistently awesome. The stars came out to celebrate two decades of the best skaters, graphics and videos in the biz.
