We had a little party down here in SD proper at Embarcadero Marina Park in downtown. Killer park setting with big flat pad and little plaza. We hauled down some obstacles, brought our BBQ and the "former" World's Biggest Skateboard. We had about 2 hunski riders of the board there. Fred from King came by and MC'd a series of events. Rail jam, WBS Hippy Jump and Box (Barrel) Jump. Justiin S. from Route 44 swooped all three events. SD Harbor Police showed up but kept it cool. Good times for sure.
Came accross these sweet Foundation sock samples that the posse is making. These just say "found". Funny. There are only 8 pairs like this. Goes into the wacky sample collection. These are a little longer 70's style tube socks.
Acclaimed artist and skateboarder, Shepard Fairey did this years Go Skateboarding Day Poster. Tum Yeto's sister company, Watson Laminates USA. silk screened 150 qty the four color posters. They will be auctioned off by the International Association of Skateboard Companies for good cause. IASC created the Go Skateboarding Day international holiday on June 21st to celebrate our skateboarding community and culture and create awareness of our unique lifestyle.
Yo fool! If you are in SD "proper" come on down to the EMB park behind the SD and party with us. No? Why not? Your lame. You changed tyour mind? Cool. Your my friend. Contests with prizes: Slalom, high jump, barrel jump, jump ramp.
So Barker made me roll in on the WBS at TYHQ mini. I made it down and bounced off at the other wall where the WBS almost ran over me and killed me. Thanks Barker!
As you all may know, Rob Dyrdek, squealshed the World Record for the Worlds Biggest Skateboard awhile back. So that makes the Foundation WBS the former WBS that you can see at www.WorldsBiggestSkateboard.com. Anyways, I got invited to Rob's Fantasy Factory and got to see the new WBS. It is pretty amzing and huge. And I am not going to try and up the ante. Rob has a bunch of good shit happening. His Skate Plazas are going off in LA and he is about to launch Professional Street League. Click on the links to check it all out.
So I am hanging at Watson Laminates today and Damon comes in with these metalic colored Foundation Star and Moon decks. I had asked him to much around a bit on the next batch. We don't sell that many so I thought it would be cool to make them somewhat custom. They are not screened yet but I could not wait to put em online. They will be silkscreened tops and bottom in more than a couple color combinations.
Done in a week or so and available from Tum Yeto Authorized Nut Job Dealers. Party!
Thanks to Watson Posse for doing them up. Made in the USA m***er f***ers!
