My San Francisco Side Trip

For those of you who don’t know, this week is WWDC here in San Francisco. I have been super lucky the last few months and just happen to work with a company cool enough to send me out here to enjoy the fun. WWDC is pretty epic. I love every minute of it.

While I’m here in SF, I had the awesome opportunity to meet Jim Theibaud (@jimt43). He was kind enough to give me a tour of the DLX Headquarters where all the magic happens to create products for Anti-Hero, Real, Thunder, Spitfire, and Krooked (skateboard products if you haven’t guessed). I couldn’t take pictures, but let me just tell you it was sweet! Right next to DLX HQ is the place where Thunder, Indy, and Venture trucks are actually manufactured. I watched the most popular skateboard trucks in the country being created, hot molten aluminium and all!

Also saw a super sick clip of Alex Perelson doing something awesome. Not sure if I should spoil the surprise, but the video comes out in like a week.
