Every year at Etnies Skatepark in Lake Forest Ryan Sheckler throws his Skate for a Cause event. The event raised 90k for charity. I was only able to stay for the Legends Pool contest. Here are a few photos:
I got the call from Jim Muir to shoot some photos at the legendary “Gonzalez Pool”. I was excited and bummed at the same time…this was the last and final session. The Gonz Pool has been going on for over 30 years and the crew had no problem getting the session heated quickly. The line up included: Ray Flores, Jim Muir, Skip Engblom, Jesse Martinez, Scott Oster, Aaron Murray, Chris Cook, Christian Hosoi, Lance Mountain, Tosh Townend, Bennett Harada, Charlie Blair and Chris Mumma. The session was a great time and hearing the crew talk about the legendary sessions that went down there was a lesson in skate history. I am glad that I was able to get a few photos to share Gonz’s last session. R.I.P. Gonzalez pool, it will be forever in our memories.
I met up with some of the Osiris guys at Unit B. They have a solid group of skaters on their “Concrete Crew Team”. I followed them to the Combi and got a few photos. Look out for their video coming out soon.
On Feb. 2nd Charlie Blair had a Jam session at the Fullerton Skatepark. There was a good turnout and a lot of the locals were there. Everyone was ripping and the session had a good vibe. I posted up by the hip most of the time because that’s were most of the action was going on. I did not get that many photos but here are a few of the photos I got:
Charlie Blair: The man with the plan….or the man with the jam. Ollie to fakie over the hip.
The groms were ripping:
