We found a new spot! Thanks to our good friend and Malibu OG Steve Wu's suggestions we moved our session to a flat and easy going bike path in Santa Monica. It's a great spot to be near the beach, skate and hang out with the DockSession family. Here's a short fun video of out last session. We're gonna keep jamming there till further notice; follow us on our

This past couple of sessions have been amazing. Witnessing the gradual growth of DockSessionUSA and seeing new faces as well as recognizing "the usuals" from week to week always puts a smile on my face.

Santa Monica: March 5 & 12, 2017 Coming from a tight skate community back in Bogotá, Colombia, I missed having an environment where people could be comfortable having different skill levels and learn from each other when it comes to skateboarding. The DockSession jams (originally created by Lotfi Lamaali in Paris, France) have always intrigued me, and I'm stoked on the opportunity to help build that community here in Los Angeles.
- Welcome to the Loaded Challenge Series 2016: a fun way for you to learn new tricks and save some serious dough on Loaded and Orangatang gear! Its been way too long since we last shared a challenge series with you all, and were stupendously excited to bring it on back.
- When you're up there, it's somewhere else that you go. It doesn't specifically feel like you're on a mountain, or that you're in Santa Barbara, the state of California, or even the good ol' US of A, for that matter. When you make the ascent to the lofty peaks that make up the Santa Barbara range you leave behind all the bullshit of your day to day, and embrace a tetherless experience of being above it all. Every year the Santa Gnarbara race comes around, and every year I relish the opportunity to make a weekend out of it and spend my time in the clouds. It's a bit of a cleansing experience, a weekend of gorgeous scenic views and incline oriented skateboarding to help put the odds and ends of your life back into perspective. It's also something I don't take for granted, knowing full well I'm rather privileged to be able to live a life that allows me to experience such things. As you can probably tell by now I really enjoy those mountains. I feel safe, cozy amongst those steep cliffs, the winding ridge roads, the bathed-in-orange sunset sessions. It's like a dream you once had, but it's real, in all its glorious vividness.

It's been a long journey, about a month and a half in the making, but we finally did it. We got to Barcelona, Spain and boogied down with the locals with Fort Rate sparking the stoke. The first two days were spent enjoying the wonderful rainy weather that apparently had been following us where ever we went. But alas, there was a fluke warm and dry day that allowed for an appropriate amount of steeze making and gnar grinding. We met up with Sergi Rudolboy and his camera equipped buddies to make
