6am. Let’s face it, no one wants to be awake at 6am. But when it’s time to hop in the van for a day of skating in L.A. with the Matix crew, the SW boys are up and rearing for an adventure no matter what the time. With Mike behind the wheel, Jade, Steve, Dylan and myself behind the lens, plus Johnny, Nate, Adam and Matt ready to shred, we hit the road ready for a solid day of skating with a solid crew. After an 8:30am pit stop for some coffee, a quick stretch and an 18 pack of brews, it was on.
