Omar Hassan threw a backyard bowl party. Here's who came to skate: Grosso, Hewitt, Grant Taylor, Partanen, Navarrette, Steve Olson, Lucero, Josh Borden, Willis Kimbel, and many others. You gotta see Hosoi's ender.
Raybourn, Parts, Navs, Strubing, and crew stopped at two legendary Santa Cruz spots, Derby and Buena enroute to the big NHS museum opening.
NHS opened their museum to a select group of family, friends, and rippers. From Steve Olson to Eric Koston, we all gathered to revisit history and share skateboarding stories in all its glory. Great job Novak and congrats on 40 plus years!
Rhino checks in from the Gonz photo show featuring work from Joe Brook, Gabe Morford, Benjamin Deberdt, and more.
