Clash at Clairemont Photos

The Clash at Clairemont went down on Saturday with a stacked roster of pro and am skateboarders throwing down for a good cause—to help fight cancer. The Krause Family YMCA was packed with skate fans showing up for the ‘boarding madness, autographs, and to see Black Flag play. Thanks to everyone who showed up to support Grind For Life! And fuck cancer! —Rhino
