Tristan Rennie’s Video Premiere: SoCal skateshop

We got a solid crew over to Omar Hassan’s backyard bowl for an afternoon session before heading to SoCal skateshop for Tristan Rennie’s Indy video premiere. Taco Dudes from Chino supplied the food, some skate obstacles were pulled out of the warehouse and a rad session went down behind the shop until dark, then everyone piled inside the shop to watch Tristan’s new part. The skating was amazing and everyone was blown away. Thanks to SoCal skateshop for having us! —Rhino

    It’s one thing to do some of the tricks you’re about to see, but it’s a whole other story to be dispatching them in the tight and cramped conditions of a backyard pool. Tristan makes it look way too easy.
