Live Oak Skateboards Grind Out Hunger Co-Lab Deck

So we decided to hook up with the Grind Out Hunger guys over at Second Harvest Food Bank and do a collaboration deck! We thought it could be a great opportunity to help give back and help end hunger in Santa Cruz. All Grind Out Hunger boards sold here they are only $50.00 and all proceeds go to Second Harvest, all artwork done by Jimbo Phillips. Every $1.00 dollar feeds a family of 4, by purchasing our Live Oak Grind Out Hunger Skateboards you are providing 50 hungry family’s with food this holiday season. Spread the love and dont’t be a Scrooge help us give back to our community!!!

Ian and Zane Shred Buena

Ian and Zane dude Venture their way up to Buena Vista to shred some jagged walls. Ian threw some gnarly grinds over the light and snagged a couple sick pics, Zane also got some sick pics and threw down some rad tricks. Their is no real strategy for skating a bowl like this. We asked the two and both explained, go fast and put it all on the line, “Blood Sweat and Tears leave it all in the bowl”.  

This shall not be the last time you see these two ripping Buena together or ripping anywhere for that fact. Keep your eyes peeled for these two.

Here are some of the pics enjoy!!!
