In Arizona, on the weekend of the Phoenix AM, it seemed like it was 1000 degrees outside. That didn’t stop Ben Hatchell from killing it all weekend. Not only did he get an ad done, he also qualified first and then won the 2011 Phoenix AM. Not bad for a guy who also turned 21 at the stroke of midnight.
Where do you go where it rains in California? To the desert of course! We hopped in the van and met up with Paul Machnau out in Palm Springs to get some skating done. The rain followed us, but Paul killed it in between showers and handled business.
DAKINE follows Andrew Langi from Redwood City, CA. He shows us the lines at Phil Shao’s park. Then we all jump in the van and head up to San Francisco’s Potrero Park to film his Ad. Andrew finishes the day with some food at the local Mexican spot.
DAKINE tags along with Sean Conover and the boys in North County SD. They start the day at Oceanside’s Melba Bishop skate park. Then Sean heads over to tangle with a sketchy run up and a wooden rail. After the dust settles, he ends up at Del Taco and gets a consolation prize for a hard days work.
Featuring Chris Haslam, Paul Machnau, Brent Atchley and Sierra Fellers on a two-week tour of Oahu and Maui, Hawaii.
