Santa Cruz 35th Anniversary Signing
Santa Cruz Skateboards held a 35th year signing down at ASR this past Friday. Mike, Chris and I stood in line for what seemed like an eternity to shake hands and get signatures from a few of these Santa Cruz legends. Not all of the names listed were there, but definitely some heavy hitters. I just had a little point and shoot camera, so I apologize for the quality.

Washington Street 9/6/08
Went down to WSVT yesterday morning to try and get a few runs in before the crowd rolled in. It wasn’t long before the place was going off…and im sure it only got hotter. The SMA crew was in effect and Skip was out there BBQing some hot dogs. Not only is this place super hard to skate, it’s not easy to take pictures at either…but enough of my excuses…
New section of the bowl closed in.
Jerry Gurney. FS Smith over the loveseat.
Mr. Miyagi Skates?
I came across this article on the Slap Magazine website a few months back, but I forgot to post it. Just read it again and it’s even better the second time around…now I want to go skate!
