San Pedro Shred Photos

San Pedro has always been about the DIY. From bands that tour “Econo” to Channel Street skatepark. San Pedro Shred: A Festival of Skate celebrates that DIY ethos every year when Pedro’s community comes together for a day of shredding. —Joe Hammeke

Guitar shredding.


Then at 3pm, Todd Congelliere’s band Underground Railroad to Candyland took the stage.


No foot pedals, these guitar sounds go straight to your ear holes.


Todd not only sings and plays guitar but was also an amazing vert pro in the early '90s.


Now this thing.


Crazy Kyle was sliding into and out of everything including this feeble to forward.


Riley Stevens manned up for the back lip.


Oscar Navarro, smooth back Smith.


And Mighty shut it down with the nosegrind.
