GO SKATEBOARDING DAYThe first annual Go Skateboarding Day was a success! Tum Yeto, Central Village (CCDRC), with special thanks to Council Member Ralph Inzunza's office and park director John Anderson, held its festivities at the newly built Memorial park in San Diego's Barrio Logan. Free day at the park, we served 200+ plus free hot dogs, sodas and held huge raffles. Just a fun day chillin at the park! The way it's supposed to be.

Ethan Fowler now rides for Boeing. And just purchased a mansion in Florida that he is converting to a circus tent. Usually he can be found at the hotspot, kickflip nosegrind.
