The Angie’s Curves event all sewn-up and the shredding shredded, we piled in the Muir van and drove through the night to meet up with Big Dave and the Sunset Sliders crew in San Francisco.
We arrived the next morning at 5AM after a couple inopportune pit-stops. We lurked on Ocean Beach for a spell, sippin’ coffees and whatnot, and as the morning progressed we linked up with the Sliders and hit some shiz. The weather was damp and foggy—as to be expected in SF—but a brief window of sun peeping through grey clouds provided the opportunity for a solid midday Potrero Skatepark session. Dave and Jensen killed it and everybody got some coping. Yummy!
After a delicio-mexo lunch break, and after linking up with the Bonzing crew, we headed over to some hills to see what could be done about mobbin’ a run or two. By the time we got to the hills the rain and fog had assaulted us will a sold damp drizzle-fizzle. Nevertheless, we were motivated enough to say the hell with it and proceeded to take some runs regardless.
Shit was sketchy. People fell, slid into curbs and whatnot, footbraked for blocks at a time, but ultimately the smiles were wide and genuine. After a couple of runs we slapped some high-fives, hugged it out with the SF homies, put our wet and dirty gear back in the van, and hit the road for Oregon at around 5PM. Good times vested!
We got to chill with the SF homies if only briefly, but it was worth it for sure. That said, it was time to keep on keepin on tuckin, driving, groovin’, and movin’. No sleep till Portland. . .
A big shout-out to all of the “Keep on Tuckin'” sponsors who made this radical road-trip a reality: Muir Skate, Loaded Boards, RDVX Grip, Landyachtz, Rider Approved Designs, Waterloo Wheel Designs, Rip City Skate, and Paris Truck Co. Thanks homies!!!!
