The special ol’ girl has had some new paint thanks to the local crew pooling their funds together. Black and ‘Creature Green.’ There’s been some epic sessions going down of late. Big thanks to everyone who has made this happen!
The Santa Cruz #cruzindownunder tour held a sick demo at Belco Skatepark yesterday. It was a beautiful afternoon with good crew.
Big thanks to Eric Dressen, Emmanuel Guzman, Shuriken Shannon, Blake Johnson, Justin Strubing and Aussie team rider Sam Giles for putting on a good show. Thanks to Dave and Irene from Trilogy for chucking the BBQ! Recent new team rider Blake Johnson definitely was a stand out skating hard and for the longest!
