Recap: Southbound and Down II Presented by Emerica

Posted by Rob Meronek on Saturday, September 26, 2015

Well it was just as we billed it: Bikes, boards, beers, homies, and all the good things that results from that mix. What a Saturday at The Boardr HQ in Tampa. Thanks to everyone that was a part of it from the booth vendors to the two wheelers to the four wheelers and random lurkers.

Kicked off my day with a lunch banger from the Chicken Trap food truck.
