Some of the Urban Skate Project Crew took a break from building DIY spots in the Los Angeles area and headed north to the Bay Area to try out a couple of the DIY spots they have up there (and ended up at Skate FE in Visalia in the end). Can’t be all work, right? With a truck packed with beer, boards and liquor “Balls” (something like 20% in a little ball size plastic bottle) with skateboarding as the destination – we headed north. The pictures tell the story.
Let Skateboarding take you places….
