When you spend a few hours in a car driving from the beach to the desert , you learn a lot of things that seemingly would never come up in daily conversations. Take for instance our ambassador, Alyasha Moore. The guy has more layers of awesomeness then anyone I’ve ever met. More on that in another blog post. We hit the freeway and headed east two weeks ago to meet up with the rest of the skate crew and work on our SS16 look book in Palm Springs.
Here’s the visual candy for you all to check out including @STACKALY’S commentary…
Got lucky with an iPhone snap of one of the most stylish cats I’ve met, pole jammin’ . Daniel Shimizu.
Beating the heat with THE KID…Jason Adams.
Shimizu at the legendary Gottschalks banks…
One of my favorite photographers, Jai Tanju taking a dip after a long day of skating and shooting.
“I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he’s a victim of the times.”
The Kid care of Johnny Cash.
Taking a load off before lunch.
Besides being one of the most talented skateboarders I’ve met, Christian Malouf is one hell of a chef.
Malouf keeping it 6:00 as always.
Adventures in paradise lost…
Ditch better have my money.
Captain Keenan on deck first thing in the morning.
Morning coffee and story time with The Kid, Aaron Finley and Daniel Shimizu.

Thank you Palm Springs, until next time. —– Alyasha Owerka-Moore
