WLAC was super cool as usual and the season opener had a great turn out!

Way to go SSS -- Brown Bomber was smokin and Attila was a force today! Josh good job. Here's a pic of the top three enjoying the moment . . .


Great to meet Baby Bianca for the first time. Here she is along with her proud parents . . .


More Firsts . . .

David showed at WLAC for the first time to join his chargin Brown Bomber and Cannonball brothers. Jay Smith took some practice runs and vowed to return to race next time -- lookin good!

Andrew Mercado should get the "most improved in one day" award -- way to go! He was also bustin out with old school moves (to match his vintage Vans) in the after race parking lot session. Hope to see more of him at upcoming events!

Thanks to Scott Peer, et al for another great event and everyone who came out to make it special. If you haven't made it out to WLAC yet -- you're missing out on some great memories and another leg of history in the making. Next one is set for July 20 -- GS and tight . . .

Ladies and Gentlemen !

If you feel electricity and fireworks in the air when you attend WLAC - it's coming from a young fella named Andrew Mercado !

This kid has the "stoke" for skateboarding
that is really amazing to see !
He's actually a good all-around skater too.

Andrew kinda reminds me of when I first got into skateboarding - a hundred years ago !

Andrew - you got the whole world in your hands ! You gotta BIG future in skateboarding ! ! ! Go for it !

..........-Rene' "Cannonball" Carrasco.
