NHS MUSEUM OPENING

40 years of Santa Cruz(or as Novak likes to say, 44 years) equals a lot of fuckin’ history skateboarding wise. Needless to say, when NHS opened their museum to an invite only crowd, The RSVP situation was pretty much a big “I WILL BE THERE”. Saturday October 5th was one of those nights Ill put on my LIFE HAMMER list. Hanging out with legends and pioneers from Koston to Thatcher and back up the list from BK to Haslam and then back down the list from Raybourn to Mofo… Fuck it was sick. Being able to hear all the history lessons, see the stoke, feel how important skateboarding is and has been to these people for so long it floored me!
