Recap: Grind for Life Series at Simi Valley Presented by Marinela

We learned something at this stop: skateboard contests on a Tuesday aren't going to be super packed. We figured in Souther California when schools out, Tuesday would be like a Saturday, but it wasn't. Oh well, there was still a good crew of you that came to have a good time and that still went down.

We learned something at this stop: skateboard contests on a Tuesday aren't going to be super packed. We figured in Souther California when schools out, Tuesday would be like a Saturday, but it wasn't. Oh well, there was still a good crew of you that came to have a good time and that still went down. Check Nate's video recap and Chaz's photography here. We'll see you at the next stop in Bradenton in a couple months.
