This fall NYC is hosting a major surf competition for the first time ever. As part of the festivities, Tony Hawk and the Birdhouse crew put on a vert demo in Manhattan. I was pretty happy to be there covering it for RC.
I was able to cover this event for Highsnobiety. Very cool event. The art exhibit was on display in the Redbull space in SoHo. Art on display was created by legendary skaters Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Chad Muska, Pat Nogho and more. The theme of the exhibit was a tribute to those revered skaters who lives were too short. It was a pretty big honor for me to meet so many skaters that I looked up to, as a kid.
LRG was rocking out with their stocking out, on Thursday night, at their offices in the garment district of NYC. They are located in this cool old building with elevators that still require an elevator operator, to turn the controls. I wish that we would have had time to stick around longer.
