A Florida Road Trip to the East Coast

Posted by Rob Meronek on Saturday, February 1, 2014

This past weekend, Porpe, Clem, and I took a road trip to the East Coast of Florida to bring Sean Malto, Matt Miller, Brad Cromer, and Steve-O to surprise our friend Jacob at his bar mitzvah. We skated, hung out at the party, and got some other business done while we were in town. Thanks Jacob and family for having us as part of your weekend. We had a great time. Maybe The Boardr should start doing celebrity birthday parties, too? I've got a camera dump here.

This cell phone edit is from when we first surprised Jacob with Sean, Matt, and Steve-O picking him up at his house.

This weekend we launched The Boardr Store. We got you on Sean Malto's Crail Clouds deck here. Sean's still recovering from his ankle smash and will be back on the board sometime around March or April.

Steve-O also has interesting skateboard stunts.

Matt Miller's working on his DC shoe right now that will be out soon. And yes, you guessed it, we'll have it in The Boardr Store. Okay, that's enough store pushing from me. If your local shop doesn't have what you need, ask them to get it. If that doesn't work, soon we'll be fully stocked to help you out with getting it from us. We had to get going to the party after Matt's nosegrind on the extra large picnic table here.

Steve-O skated the whole night and even got on the mic to introduce Jacob.

Out back was a graffiti dustcloud.

Porpe goes in with his tag high enough so that none of the kids can paint over it.

Jacob is doing a frontside 180 into grown manhood right now.

I bet right now Sean Malto is wondering why these two dudes decide to sit right here when there's 1,000 other chairs in the room.

The next morning, we woke up early to a great sunrise and view thanks to Woodward's Gary Ream letting us use his condo.

While we were on this coast, we also stopped by the offices of MovieTickets.com. They have a few skateboarders and BMXers working there and want to get involved in the skateboarding events we're doing in 2014. We're looking forward to working with them. We got an interesting tour of their offices and some basics on their tech and operations that are based out of Boca.
