The AXS Longboard Retailer Launch Party Was Awesome!

SoCal rules!! So we went down to Long Beach California Jan 5 for the launch of AXS Longboard Retailer Magazine (oh yea and to go to Agenda 2012) and had a blast, 28 degrees celsius and sunny in January! We hung out with Michael Brooke and Rick Tetz for the weekend, drank some tequila (Thanks to Pablo and Don from Loaded) and chilled at the Hilton Long beach! Famous Dave’s BBQ did a great job hosting our launch party, great ribs, wings and nice cold beer!
