Independent's "Gotta Pray to Play" Premiere Photos

Independent Trucks premiered their new video Gotta Pray to Play in San Diego at Culture Brewing Co. We decided to put the word out for a low key session at the Ocean Beach skatepark with a bbq and some beverages. A skate session before a video? Why not. A heavy session went down with the likes of Dressen, Hitz, Marius, Townley, Nora, Nicole Hause, Lefty, Remillard, Clive, Omar and a bunch of locals until dark then we all rallied over to Culture for the video. The place was packed with skaters, a huge raffle of Indy and Thrasher goods was hosted by none other than Omar Hassan. Thanks to everyone who came out! –Rhino
