2nd Annual Lower Bob's P-Stone Invitational Photos
A sunny day in Oakland brought out a heavy crew of skaters and spectators to celebrate the life of Preston "P-Stone" Maigetter. In the past year we also lost Mark "Monk" Hubbard and our beloved Editor in Chief, Jake Phelps, so this year’s event was extra heavy. The Lower Bobs crew added some new ‘crete to the park and shit got turned up to 11! After it was all said and done, everyone who showed up and skated won, but the official trophy winners who rev’d it up all day were Ronnie Sandoval in 1st, Roman Pabich snagging 2nd and Rowan Zorilla zipping into 3rd. And don’t forget about Pedro Barros—he took home the Widow Maker award. See you next year! —Rhino
