Alexis Ramirez’ Video Premiere Photos

Sk8Mafia runs deep in the San Diego area and along with DC Shoes they put on a skate jam at Shokus skatepark in Ocean Beach. A ton of homies showed up, HoDad’s Burgers were fired up on the grill, cold ones got drank and numerous best-trick contests went down. Right around sunset, everyone headed over to Culture Brewing Co in anticipation of seeing Alexis Ramirez’ new video part. The place was packed to the gils and his part blew everyone’s minds. Right after the credits rolled, Alexis was surprised with his first Sk8Mafia pro-model boards. Well deserved! –Rhino
