things got weird at Ryan Smith's house.
The Crossroads retail show has turned into the number one place where skateboarding reigns supreme and you can expect to see everybody who's anybody. It's become my annual trip to So Cal and while my primary purpose may be "business", it's also a time when I get to catch up with old friends.
The trip started out with a visit to Transworld to see Dustin Koop and skate their park. (above) Morgan Hystad takes us through...
It's funny actually how far I'll travel sometimes just to wind up hanging with other Canadians I don't get the chance to see too often. We hooked up with Spencer Hamilton for a burrito later and he took us back to the house he's staying at in Encinitas for the next month and showed us the shoe/color way he's getting with Supra.
