San Pedro has a new skatepark and it rules! Lance Mountain and the San Pedro Skatepark Association did a great job in making sure the Peck Park Skatepark was built right. Spent most of the time rolling around, but managed to fire off a few shots of the heavy bowl sesh.
Get down to San Pedro and get some!
There were plenty of parents with their cell phones covering the Tim Brauch 2014 Memorial Contest for Facebook, so I shot a few things going on behind the scene.

The 8th annual Clash at Clairemont went down this past Saturday in San Diego. Hundreds gathered to watch heavy legends and grom rippers tear up the Clairemont YMCA to benefit the Grind for Life organization.
Huge thanks to Mike Rogers, Chris Conway and all the Grind For Life crew that made the 2014 Clash at Clairemont happen. Until next year…
Super cool short documentary on the good dudes of Dreamland Skateparks.
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.
Thanks to everyone for a great day and epic session.

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.
The 2014 Van Doren Invitational Contest will take place in Huntington Beach during the US Open of Surfing the last week of July, with the finals on Sunday, August 2.
On Tuesday, July 29 be sure to check out the Van Doren Invitational Women’s Bowl Contest at 4 pm.
