Sandro is the brainchild, co-founder/owner, creative director and janitor at Color. An art school drop-out he got his start early in life doing graphics for skateboard companies while designing his high-school year book and slanging tee shirts, chips to crack Playstations and fake IDs. He’s proudly not on Facebook and lives with his lovely girlfriend Julianna in Vancouver BC.
Last Nite was the after party for DC's KING OF VANCOUVER. Montreal's JS Lapierre (above) took the title and $7000.00 along with it. I went along with the King on the bus to the Bogus Tokus show and let me tell you, there was a SHOW!
You'll have to ask one of the 15 dudes who cheered this couple on for the real highlights.
Over at the foosball table, Wes Kramer took out Sashca Daley
Eventually it became all too much so I found the nearest bus and tripped out on things like this:
Today was the finals for Canada's Matix Lord Of The Lines and here are the results!
1st Place: Desmond Hoostie ($3500.00)
2nd: Spencer Hamilton ($1000.00)
3rd: Mike Schulze aka Hasbrown ($500.00)
Afterward, everyone (of age) piled into the Biltmore Cabaret where the official after party commenced past 2 in the morning. congrats fellas! More photos coming soon.

As with most skaters my age, the friends I started skating with have long since moved on. I was lucky enough to sit shotgun side (at least for some) with the guys I first moved to Vancouver with 7 years ago. We toured 3 mexicans and 1 el salvadorian through the Okanagan over 5 days of swimming, skating, atv's, sailing, jetskiing and shooting off guns. It was fantastico!
This was the trip we always meant to do, but it never came together. We hit just as many rivers and lakes as we did skate parks. Here's a few photos I took at the kamloops skate park and others during the trip.
