As far as the X-Games, éS is super proud of our very own Alexis Sablone, proving that her long term commitment to Skateboarding is still paying off with her Gold Medal win on Sunday.
A huge thanks to Rob Brink for threading us these images to use.
Jump in for some sequences and more.
On Saturday while the masses gathered for X-Games 16, 8 of the éS team visited one of the spiritual homes of skateboarding. Val Surf the oldest running skate shop in the world combined with the park SkateLab (the premier museum on Skate culture) to present a demo by some of the éS team.
Here's a quick little edit of about half the tricks that got laid done beneath these hallowed walls. The demo was a great warm up session for the South by South East Tour which kicks off this weekend.
If you've never been, go witness the incredible history which speaks from their walls and rip the park while you're there, safe in the knowledge that the purity of skateboarding rests comfortably in Simi valley.
