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…
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.
Sleep. The great earth is still. Leaves wither and brown. They fall away and touch the earth. Decay. The great cycle of life. New things will come from them after the earth sleeps. A few friends stop by from time to time throughout the year. They are from other places. Snow birds. Colorado. Pennsylvania. All over…
They try and sit out the cold spell. Frost glistens in the morning. Old bones crack and ache.The snow birds flutter and move to warmer regions. They long for warmth. We provide it. In spirit. They fly. They sing. They collect in groups and drink from cement ponds… nourishment for the soul. The snow birds are content. Thanks to Brandon Wong for the images. Skate- Ozzie
I got the line on the weird Anthony amoeba with a cool deck and diving block. Jake and Carlos cleaned it up and got it ready to rip. It only lasted a few sessions, but the memories last forever… especially if you have a few photos.
After years in the making, the Vans Off The Wall Skatepark opened this past Saturday and did not disappoint. Little girls, old men, street shredders and vert dogs all came out to get a sample of the 40,000 sq ft, California Skateparks built, wonderland located in Surf City USA. There has been a ton of coverage already, so I’m not going to go into design details, but here are a few photos from the day.
Huge thanks to Steve Van Doren and the Vans Crew, Jacks, CA Skateparks and everyone else involved in bringing another great park to the area. The Vans Off The Wall Skatepark is located at 7471 Center Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA, next to Old World. Hours are 10-7 right now with rumors of lights going in soon. After your sesh, head over to Grinderz in Old World for some burgers and good beers on tap.
