Last Friday we hopped in the van and made the 6 hour trek up to San Francisco to watch Thrasher Magazine make it official when they hand Kyle Walker the 2016 ‘Skater of the Year’ trophy. After the 6 hour drive up which comprised of at least an hour just trying to get over the Bay Bridge, we made it to Public Works SF for the party. Should have added us on Snapchat, it would have been like you were in the van! Kyle Walker was surrounded by his family and friends along with all his homies throughout the skate scene. Three acts were on the bill as well featuring Kill a Punk for Rock and Roll, Danava (who also played the Holy Stokes! San Francisco premiere) and Bay Area legendRappin 4-Tay. After the party everyone headed to the local skate bar Kilowatt and after that we took the party back to the hotel rooms where it didn’t stop until the wee hours of the morning. Check a few photos below and Active Ride Shop’s Morgnar even hopped in the van with us and has a recap over at the Active blog too. Congrats Kyle!
