One thing learned on our latest Baja run is if you’re going to drive through desert salt flats at 80 mph with a dog named Macho, its best to do it listening to Electronic music turned to 11. San Juanico is quite a hike from San Diego, but the sleepy fishing town holds some seriously fun point surf. Sector 9ers Daniel Graham, Drake Stanley, Rob Molt (and Macho of course) made it down for the sweet little Mexican surf fiesta, "El Torneo de Longboard Surf". Thanks to the folks of San Juanico, Manuel, the hut at the Burro, and the La Paz party crew for the great times... and thanks to Macho for the help through the Federale check points on the way home. Viva Mexico!

Drake Stanley, Rob Molt, and the champ... Daniel Graham
DG, aka "pinche Flacco".
Daniel donated the board to the locals and kept the pancho.
Tecate's, tequila, and Caballeros... hard to top that party.
Pancho barrels to cap off the night...
The Sector 9 Japan crew have been donating their time and efforts to helping the victims of the Japan Tsunami.
The crew brought a bunch of Sector 9 bamboo boards to the shelters and gave them out to the kids. They had a great response, and helped make some smiles in a difficult time.
The devestation from the Tsunami is still everywhere and the Japanese people still need help. Do what you can to support them in a their time of need.

The Sector 9 Surf Team have been surfing beers and crushing waves down in Cabo San Lucas all week. There must be less gravity south of the border because the boys were blasting massive airs all over Baja California.
Check out the madness here:

San Diego Padre's pitcher, Luke Gregerson, rides retro. When he's not riding his Sector 9 to the stadium for practice and games, he rolls in style with his 67' Camaro.

The photo album from the Clash at Clairemont gives you a good idea how heavy the sessions were! All the skaters there were killing it, and Sector 9 destroyed it with Jake Piasecki and Shaun Ross taking #1 and #2 in the Longest Board Slide contest. Big thank you to Grind For Life for putting on another epic event and continuing to do what they do!
