Converse X Chocolate Skate Jam
In celebration of Kenny Anderson’s new Converse X Chocolate shoe, the guys teamed up for a classic parking-lot skate jam at Furnace skate shop in Buena Park. Tacos, ramps, beers and bros—what's not to love? —Ben Karpinski
Arrived just in time to see Hager Brothers Solutions putting the finishing touches on the obstacles. Manual that!
Tom Remillard tests the waters with a front blunt. She's seaworthy, mates
Then it was straight to the skies. Lien on me…
Meanwhile, across the parking lot—
The man of the hour, Kenny A, taking his pivot to fakie. All style, that guy
Classic Kenny back noseblunt. Check out those shoes!
Frankie sure as Heck doesn’t have a snowboarder back 360
Ryan Townley snaps a tré flip over the stool. Just say no to the yo
Plant Food For People kept the plant-based tacos coming all night
“Kenny, there is no way all this is vegan” “Jackfruit, Tom, all jackfruit.”
Furnace lifer, Billy Davenport
Speaking of the Furnace crew, Randall Pink and Cody Creez
Rick Howard eyeing the board wall, looking for Girls
Ducky found that new Jesse Vieira board. Mmmmm, fresh Pizza
While Justin Eldridge reminisces about that perfect 7.5625" shape. It was sooo good…
Furnace triple OG Danny Montoya stoked on the reissued shirts. Yellow making a big comeback
Back out front, Aaron Kim catches some free air…
…while Jeremy Ponce pounces on a truck bash
Jem took a break from manning the register to check all the action. Relax…
Crailtap’s finest posted up in the parking lot. Yo, where's @bonelesszine?
Ryan Townley and the elusive heela monster. She'll bite ya'
Then Kenny and crew busted out a stack of decks for the best tricks off the kicker. Eddie sparked it off with a kickflip
Eric Lord made this backside flip his servant
In the end, everyone who showed up was a winner…
…and Kenny became an honorary Peak Park local
Only thing left to do was have a few brew dogs
And maybe figure out how to get that quarterpipe back to your house
Thanks for the epic night, Cons, Chocolate, Furnace and Plant Food For People. Parking-lot parties will never go out of style
9/20/2018This is NOT a contest. This is a collision of volcanic skateboarding energy that fuels Mach speed Smith grinds, stratospheric wallrides and skyscraper tail drops. Go for the GLORY or get bent.
