Words could not describe the amazing skating that went down at Upland Skatepark celebrating the Hoffman Family and the 35th anniversary of the Pipeline with their “Badlands Bash”. Dave Duncan was on the mic, but Salba was running the show.
Skaters included legends: Salba, Malba, Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, Eddie Elguera, Christian Hosoi, Sergie Ventura, and Jay Adams. Lots of up and coming sons of Badlanders including Frankie Fernandez, Kevin Burke and Tristan Rennie held it down and insured the Badlands are in good hands for generations to come.
