Things To Do In San Diego: Wednesday, May 20, 2015

I have had such a cool week so far and it's only Tuesday. Darren got his first photo pit experience shooting at Little Dragon and then going to San Fermin, his enthusiasm beyond what I would have had if I had gone instead, so it was kind of magical. Then yesterday, Darren, Nova and I got a tour of the incredible Sector 9 factory by Rob Molt. I had no idea the volume of boards these guys make- it is mind blowing. We learned every process, from where the wood starts as flat sheets to the presses and molds, to the cutting and sanding and shaping and applying graphics down to the laser printed serial numbers. Rob hooked us up with some swag and gave Nova a complete Liquid Metal deck, which he boxed up for us. Then he showed us the Bread Bowl- their onsite skate ramp- and had one of the Sector 9 team riders demo for us before letting Nova skate around it a little. It was truly an experience we won't soon forget. We took her to OB skatepark to skate on the small pools, had a rad dinner at Phil's, and then I went to Glass Animals at the Observatory followed by Speedy Ortiz at Soda Bar. And it's only Wednesday!
