Van Doren Invitational – Women’s Bowl Contest

Went out to support the lady shredders at the Van Doren Invitational Women’s Bowl Contest. So good to see the level being pushed every year and the stands filling up with stoked fans.

Ride for Shogo Kubo.

Don’t ever need a reason to skate pools with good friends, but this day we rode in honor of skateboard legend, Shogo Kubo. Ozzie lined up the venue and called up Salba, KB and Riverside Shawn the week prior to clean up this epic Rossmore Blue Haven.

That very next Sunday we all met out front and listened to stories past of Shogo. Then stepped into the backyard to begin one of the best sessions I’ve been a part of in a long time. Just pure stoke.

2014 Van Doren Invitational Course Renderings.

CA Ramp Works just released the confirmed course renderings for the 2014 Van Doren Invitational. Looking pretty similar to last year’s Marseille setup, but with a squared off bowl instead of the round.
