West Coastin’ 2nd Report by Pam Díaz

It all started..

Faster than what I ever thought. We made a plan, we collected the money, and with the help of our sponsors we got the car. Thank you Daddies Board Shop, Blue Sky Longboards, Comet Skateboards and Caliber Trucks for your constant support!

The plan is to start in LA and drive in the van to Washington, in a two week roadtrip to the 1st Maryhill She-Ride.

The first spot was Malibu, ready to film and take pictures, we started shredding!

Since the very first moment it was a great feeling to be only girls in a car, driving in California with our skateboards.

After a very nice session in the sunset, we started heading to Santa Barbara, got ready in the supermarket and got the right equipment to go camping. We got there in the night, so I had no idea what was waiting for my eyes to see.

No words to explain the happinnes of waking up in the road in a beautiful morning with four beautiful ladies ready to skate.

The day was AWESOME! we met with locals who invited us to stay for another day, was great because the next day, after good rest we started our way to San Francisco.

In San Francisco we were planning to stay with the Sunset Sliders. The driving was long but worth it ten times!

San Francisco was epic, i would say it was the best stop by far, i love those people!

When we got to SF the boys were waiting for us at Big Dave’s house, our buddies Bandy, Nick, Jensen, Adrian and Jesse. It was amazing how many good vibes we felt since we got there.

The plan was to stay in SF for two nights.

The other day we woke up and went skating with the Sunset Sliders around San Francisco, they showed us some of their spots and we shredded in every of them.

Super grateful to spend time with shredskater brothers in that beautiful city, who took really good care of us

San Francisco has my heart.

ANYONE SEE THIS YET?

AKB 48 SKATES? HAHA

So there is this weird girl band sensation in Japan, there is still a boy band one too but this group in particular kind of took it to another level. Their name is AKB48 and there are 48 members of the group. These are just some of the main and more popular ones.  Funny thing is all the girls in the group are around the age or 13 or 14, with the exception of a few “leaders” who are a bit older… and by older I only mean “of age,” so they are still only like 18 or so. These ones up here are some of the “leaders.”

Im surprised that longboarding hasn’t blown up a bit more over there, considering all the hills. I lived over there for quite a while and I got my brother in-law doing some downhill. Stay posted to the blog guys cause I am heading back pretty soon for a trip. I will be posting all sorts of sick photos!

I doubt I will be running into AKB 48 with all their skate gear but if I do I will be sure to get some more photos for all your viewing pleasure.

Wanna know another funny thing? My older brother in-law has been to one of these girls concerts before. But thats really not surprising because the majority of their fan base is guys from the ages of 18 – 25 or so, I wonder why???

Well, enjoy the eye candy guys!
