The El Gato Classic
The El Gato Classic went down in Palm Springs this past weekend hosted by Eddie “El Gato” Elguera. Skateboard legends from the '70s and '80s showed up who were the innovators of early pool riding and skateboard competition. The Nude Bowl replica got ripped apart by the legends and even Tony Hawk showed up for a vert demo. A legendary skateboard weekend, see you next year! Photos: Rhino
