So I finally get a chance to talk about what went on almost a few weeks back now, its amazing how long it takes you to get back into the swing to thing after having such a surreal trip of the first year. Ok so the 7th annual OneLoveJam was of course on MLK weekend was extra special, first it was my big 43 day on this earth and second my homie fat joe bka halfpacker man, bka jody mf' temple made his first appearance on Southern California soil.
This year I decided to meet the homies down south so I booked a flight with Virgin which I gotta tell ya they are the most modern version of flight I'm down for this airline service. Any way it was on it's 2nd week of rain and my ray of hope was leaving Tuesday as the sky starts to fall, I mean so much that they had to switch pilots because the due was too green to fly out of the bay with the high winds and no coverage, yeah you couldn't even see the planes on the tarmac at one point. I finally made it after a very long 1 hour flight...lol the homie Ahmed came thru and we went to Venice to chill and was taxi over to anther homie place where I would be staying till the Air BNB was open on Friday. Wed morning I put the old girl together and snapped my new half link, luckily there was a shop near by but I wouldn't recommend it to anybody, what shop owner would sell you a link that wasn't the same thickness?? Any way I bought his overpriced non hollow pin half link chain and went down to LBC to meet up with young shredder Bene. The next day was rain, I mean like NorCal rain so I took the Metro up to Hollyhood to meet B Carter, Jody, and the Duke.
Friday was the big pre jam, I was stoked to be there this year, since I missed the last one. Lots of dude rode hard all day long, as the sun set, I headed down to Newport Beach to meet up with the Athens Fam, it's been a min since we all except Dane have been under the same roof. Im afraid Andrew's girl thought the stories he told were alternative facts.
Saturday was the day, OMG so many people where at the spot hella early, which is fine but man once everybody gets there its hard to find a good place to session, but hey its a jam theres no need to be a hermit. I feel like the fakie manny is the new steamroller, or maybe freecoasters are at the peak of perfection, I shall study this more. Then of course the epic fat sack give away, s/o to all the sponsors...I don't think any contest last year stateside even gives as much swag to the contestants and this is just a jam. Once again THANK YOU sponsors, without you this would not be one of the first big event of the year. And thank you to all the supporters coming out every year!
Well I can tell you more, but heres some pictures and an edit, hope to see y'all next year same bat channel same bat time!
