Burnout: Off the Wall
I apologize for the extreme gaps lately. I been on the road, where WIFI fears to tread. Deathwish tour all next week, I promise - including photos of Antwuan with firearms. Until then however....
Beautiful Venice Beach for the Vans Round-Up, our most epic one yet!
Perfectly mimicing the ocean waves.
It's always an interesting scene down at Venice.
Holy shit! Is that...
Tony Alva?!! Not bad.
Like seeing a goddamn unicorn.
Who dareth leave the Gonz hanging?
Langi and Pfanner.
Gilbert, Yaje, Johnny, Jon and Curren.
Acosta and Barbee. Nice.
Lone wolf, Donovan Piscopo.
Here we go.
The legends dove straight into doubles.
A little high pressure, to say the least.
Ave gets squinty.
Point Break's Andrew Allen.
Behind the scenes of Jesse's Classic Covers.
He told us one incredible story after another.
Rowley talks Sturt.
Chima and Jake.
Tony got cryptic.
OC legends, Grosso and Jamie Hart.
T-Mo nudges ever closer to pro status with finger-flexing handplants.
The new generations' Daniel Lutheran with master lensman, Greg Hunt.
We were worried we didn't get enough street style so we met a few of the bros at the Santa Ana park the next morning. Langi did his best.
This reminds me of a Slap photo from the '90s. Gilbert, nollie tail grab.
It's always a good time to get out the Sears portrait studio. Mrs. Pfanner has a killer smile.
Ever wonder what Massimo Cavedoni looked like?
This also creates a good opportunity for contest websites to steal photos for their profile pages. Just in case you're checking this out, Dew Tour, this kid is Steve Steadham.
Part time owl, Jamie Hart.
Just in case anyone thought he lost it....
Always in control. Thanks, Jamie! Photos from Bucky's tomorrow. Get your shit ready, Hammeke.
