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.

Halfway through the mag, Ben is pleasantly surprised to find the featured poster is also under his name. So far so good! When he gets to the final page however, he gets the surprise of a lifetime… Ben Raemers is pro for enjoi!
