In this cruel world, there are some questions that should not be answered. Who shot JFK? Was 9/11 an inside job? Where is Waldo? Will the Real Slim Shady please stand up? I do not have any of the answers to any of these questions but one question that’s been on everyone’s mind is, what is The Waffle House? That my friends, I have the answer too.
We drove down to Los Angeles for a “2 Decades Of Stereo Skateboards” retrospective exhibit and the release of their first ever WeSC x Stereo collaboration. We arrived early to meet with Chris Pastras and Jason Lee for an exclusive walkthrough of the exhibit. Video coming soon along with the WeSC x Stereo collaborative capsule at Skate Warehouse!
We took a trip down to Skate One Distribution last week. Skate One is home to BONES Wheels, Powell-Peralta, Bones Bearings, Mini Logo and several other great skate brands. George Powell himself gave us a personally guided tour through the entire facility. We covered the deck manufacturing process in Part 1, so be sure to check that out before reading on.
Skate One Distribution is home to BONES Wheels, Powell-Peralta, Bones Bearings, Mini Logo and several other great skate brands. They’ve been responsible for the best bearings and highest performance urethane in skateboarding for decades running and we were excited to get an inside look at the facility. When we arrived, we were pleasantly greeted by our Skate One rep, Jamie Gathard, and our tour guide… George Powell himself!
A crew of SW doods flew our magic bus down to The Berrics for the Adidas Skate Copa competition and had some skatepark layovers along the way. Features Matt Clifford, Cole Garrett, Zach Garrett, Nate Hoover and a special lurky guest appearance from Louis Borzage.
When we got invited to the first ever adidas Skate Copa event at the Berrics, needless to say we were stoked. As homage to the World Cup, adidas arranged a series of shop team vs. shop team contests across the country for gold and glory. The competition was tough, the stakes were high and I couldn’t be more proud of our dudes.
