Last Wednesday, we hosted the RDS (Run Drop Slide) dudes on their Crossover Tour once again, and were treated to some pretty damn good skateboarding. If you're not familiar with what this is all about, you're not alone. These guys travel all across the country doing contests for skimboarding, surfing, skateboarding, biking and probably a bunch of other crazy shit. They always make SPoT one of their destinations and put together a totally DIY competition with about 10 guys and very little money. It's all heart and it's also one of Schaefer's favorite events of the year.
