Josh Borden's Surprise Party

Josh Borden's Surprise Party

A heavy crew assembled at Omar Hassan's backyard bowl to surprise Josh Borden on Saturday. The bowl was shredded, cold ones were knocked back, Taco Dudes catered taco cart, friends, family and team mates, legends all showed up to congratulate Josh Borden on turning pro for Santa Cruz skateboards and to wish him a happy birthday all on the same day! Fuck yeah Josh!
