Eddie Elguera held his El Gato Classic this weekend Jan 23-25, 2015. He brought together the legends of skateboarding to Palm Springs for since the Gold Cup Series in 1980. Friday started off with a photography/art show with many of the skate photographers from the 78-92 era showing photos never before seen. A lot of the skateboarding family hadn't seen each other in 30+ years, Gold Cup Marina footage played in the background. When vert skating died all of a sudden everyone quit, this time a lot of the legends were getting each others to sign boards and t-shirts and taking selfies for their own collections.
Here are some videos I cut together from videos I shot that weekend.
Note: Listen to Christian Hosoi's commentary its funny and historical and you
can tell everyone is having a great time especially BB.
( i will add to this blog spot with photos and video)

Chloe Kim is the future of woman's snowboarding. Chloe Kim at 14 years old became the youngest snowboarder to ever win a gold medal in winter X. The Olympics said she was too young so she didn't get to compete in Sochi last year even though she was ranked No.2 in the world at the time. Nice win to the road to PyeongChang South Korea for Winter Olympic 2018.
