As you may very well know, our city has finally built a new skatepark! Well, word got out and the Girl and Chocolate teams decided to make a stop for their Going Dumb Up The 101 tour. Does it get any better than a Girl and Chocolate demo? We’re honored that they chose to come to our town and get us even more stoked on the new park!
At long last, our beautiful home town of San Luis Obispo has opened up a new skatepark! Though we loved the old SLO skatepark, it was in serious need of replacement. After years of fundraising, public forums and city council meetings, the park is finally complete and open for business. What better way to celebrate such a momentous feat than with a huge grand opening?
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 premiered TransWorld Skateboarding‘s 26th video, ‘Outliers’ at the Palm Theatre here in San Luis Obispo last night. It was a pretty good turn out and we raffled away a pile of sweet TransWorld stuff. Before the TransWorld Outliers screening, we threw on a Jazztato teaser for the upcoming Jazzpush video which features a bunch of local rippers. Good edit Johnny Jazzpush! The premiere was a blast, the video was super good and as always, we were super stoked to see everyone that came out.
This past Wednesday Skate Warehouse was fortunate to be a stop along the Vans RV Tour Bus route. The bus pulled into our lot at about 4pm and unloaded with the Vans crew, a bunch of free Vans stuff, hot dogs and snacks and none other than the infamous Tony Alva, poster and sharpie in hand! Read more and see all the pics from the event.
