So about 1.5 weeks ago, Motley was just coming down off a skate-geek high after her tour of Riedell in Minneapolis and the we-us's at Cruz decided to celebrate the terminal endification of Block's Spring Semester by commencing a journey to the southland to rub elbows with some of our favorite manufacturers and purveyors of the the goods we use to keep us rolling, to protect our brain-cases, and to nunsmashify our pointier parts.
We met up with some stellar peeps who are working hard to blow alla-us's mindholes open with awesome. Seriously, they showed us and schooled us about many a thing formerly beyond our ken and we can't wait to share it with yous all…
For now we just want to express our gratitude to all the rad peeps that made it possible to tour:
- Powell-Peralta in Goleta
- Sure-Grip in South Gate
- S-one Helmets in Gardena
- 187 Pads in Encinitas
- Aend Industries
We also want to thank:
Jo Mama of Jo Show Promotions for letting us crash, for taking us skating at Venice beach, and for taking us to see a rad band after the Derby Dolls Bout.
Dumptruck and Whipskey for hooking us up with a place to crash for THREE WHOLE NIGHTS!! AND IT HAD A POOL!!!
Vulverine for creating the magic that is NEWDAYNEWDICK.com and for letting us make loud noises in her back yard very late on a work night.
Dudes at S-One for hooking us up with some VIP Seats at the Derby Dolls bout. So epic.
To those we missed...live closer to where we're crashing next time. Sorry we didn't see yer faces.
