B Team Ramp Backyard Blast Photos


Over the weekend, some of the world's best transition skaters pumped some extra life into a backyard ramp in the heart of Vista. The B Team Ramp Backyard Blast was not only hosted by Mancha, but he also provided free food to everyone in attendance to fuel the good time. Before the jam, we thought the rain might put a stop to the celebration, but luckily Duncan’s thunderous voice on the mic kept the clouds at bay. Then Hosoi kept the fire lit from the sidelines while Sandro Dias put down a first-try gnar jar which left the ramp trembling. And despite opting out of skating the finals, Alex Perelson still managed to spin his way to first place with a series of jaw-dropping runs during qualifiers. After all these years, vert is still not dead! —Tim Aguilar

    Blood Wizard's "Occult" Video
    The Wizard gives you a peak behind the curtain at their sacred rituals for sparking sessions and creating chaos. Gregson deploys his double-threat talents, tearing up the bowls and ditches alongside Given, Rennie, Kowalski and more. Smoldering pentagrams are just the start of the savagery.

    No one can lose Gregson, not even in a jungle. One of the fastest filmers in the game takes you on a full-speed rip-ride through São Paulo’s DIYs alongside Kowalksi and a few more lunatics.
