Stephen Lawyer Pro Surprise Party
Stephen Lawyer, the technical wizard in multi-colored camo, put out a new part for Sk8Mafia that premiered in Oceanside, CA, at Fat Joe’s beer house. All the cool fools made it out to check the next-level skating on the big screen and wash down the week with a couple of cold ones. The night rev’d up when a big surprise went down after the credits—Stephen’s pro model board was unveiled and presented to him by his mother! Congrats, Stephen, on the pro status. Well deserved, Fam. —JT Rhoades
