They Say its a Revolution

Now I can finally talk about this. The CA Heritage Museum in Santa Monica has put up an amazing show about the evolution of Skateboarding and art in California through the years.  Shows opens this Saturday November 14 and goes through May 30, 2010. Well worth checking out!

Last night was the private opening party for all the old school skaters to get together hang out, eat and drink, check out the boards, tell stories and catch up with one another. It was an awesome night and so great running into skaters I have not seen since we competed together back in the late 70's - early 80's.

We all got a chance to catch up with Skip Englebloom after so many years.

We ran into David Hackett outside - he is always the nicest guy.

I was able to take pictures in here thanks to Dale - all the other rooms were guarded by security guys and no photos were allowed - except the one I shot off fast of Kevin and I in front of his board before they caught me!

It was the best night ever!
