"Lotties Skateshop Must Be Stopped" Premiere Photos
This past Thursday we had a super small showing for close friends to see the new Lotties video. The theater was kinda overkill, but I wanted to have the people who worked real hard on the shit they filmed get the opportunity to see their efforts on a big screen instead of a fucking phone, even if it was just once. Fifty-five seats in a theater get filled super quick, so my apologies for any friends who didn’t make it, and thanks to the friends who were able to come watch. Obviously if you’re reading this, you’ve already clicked on the video, you weren’t satisfied, and you needed some more content to check out. Our apologies! Here is some more junk from the drawer to click through. If you’re still not entertained, please come by the Lotties. I will do whatever I can to make it up to you. —Daniel Wheatley
How picturesque, a little video premiere in the quaint Los Feliz neighborhood
Our prince, Nick Michel, receiving a deserved punch in the face
Pre-show hype: Sully Cardenas, AA, Mike G, Frank Mare, Dog Walker
Nobody wants to be the first person to walk in the theater. You’re an instant kook if you go in first, much to my dismay :(
"What’s the ticket for?" I will give you one guess
Lev Tanju, Charlie Young, Eli Berle, Danny Brady, Logan Lara, Calvin Reboya, Cody and Christina all delaying the premiere. Skaters hate to sit down when they are told to do so
Damn, Rowan showed up. My anxiety was not happy about this, but the rest of me was.
It’s Ako, you fool!
Two video gods, Logan Lara and Aaron Meza. Meza has a psycho crush on Logan. He was really bummed when Logan quit Girl, and then had to deal with me instead. Logan’s shoes were impossible to fill. I’m sorry Meza; I will never be Logan.
Jay Bone in the house. Jay puts my nerves at ease. He’s very warm and not judgmental. Unlike my old boss, Meza. I’m not a free spirit, Meza, get over it!
When skate trends get in the way of your life hack
Full house! Who are those girls? We specifically said no girlfriends on the flyer
Spanky and AA, fine as hell.
Mike said some really nice words. I remember saying some stuff that wasn’t as good
Frog skateboards riders Frankie Decker and Chris Milic on the floor. I’m sorry, guys
And then it was over. I wish more people would yell and get crazy at premieres. I would say David Clark got the most applause
Mike G and Nick Michel. As Figgy said to me the other day, “If he’s got two first names, you know he’s going to be good”
Two of ATL’s finest, Ryan Flynn and David Clark. David was nervous as hell
Nick and Frankie Decker. Both of their dads skate. They have seriously been skating since they were semen. You can tell when you see them skate
Lotties employees Chris, Eric, and Louie <3
Jerry, Spanky, Danny Brady, J-Lay and the rest of the crowd doing the typical wait-to-see-what-everyone-else-is-doing thing
Ready or Not… let’s go to the bar. Jk, I’m going home. I am exhausted and boring
3/28/2020Frogs and friends Chris Milic, Frankie Decker, Nick Michel, Salomon Cardenas, and their fellow West Coasters rip through LA with their signature blend of bitchin’ bank moves and serious stunts. It may look fun but these guys are not playing around…
3/13/2020Phelper took an all-time crew of heavy hitters to Chile in January 2019 for what turned out to be his final HELLRIDE. As he fired up the session, legends like Koston, GT, and Ishod took things to the next level. It’s been a year since his physical form moved on, but the Old Man is STILL WATCHIN.
3/12/2020Grosso bridges the generational divide between Gen Xers and Millennials by talking with Rowan and Ronnie Sandoval. Rowan’s unreal story about Phelps is reason enough to tune in. Know your history.
3/06/2020Everyone’s favorite annual award ceremony is back to celebrate the year’s best breakthroughs and bunts. If you can’t make SOTY, might as well hope for a T-Eddy. See the list and guess who’ll get pissed.
2/21/2020Continuing their already impressive legacy, Emerica strikes gold again with Green. Dakota pushes his rail game to new limits and Dickson rips every set and bank to shreds like a rabid wolverine while the rest of the team fills out a killer montage. This is canon.
