Foundation's "Souvenir" Premiere Photos
Keeping the premiere season going, KOTR alumni Foundation skateboards debuted their newest offering Souvenir to the public Thursday evening at the RVCA headquarters in Costa Mesa. Locals from all over Southern California made their way out to see what the F team has been cooking up for the last year. With newly turned pro Corey Glick having a part along with Foundation vet Dakota Servold and new dudes John Clemmons and Cotie Robinson, it was hard not to roll out—not to mention the fact that Black Plague Brewing was providing beverages for the evening. Add to it a ramp jam out back and you have the perfect formula for a guaranteed good time. –Alex Papke

Packed house! No wonder the beer was gone so fast
You’ll have this look on your face, too, when you see Corey’s last trick.
