When you live in California, it’s easy to take all the traditions that started here for granted: surfing, skateboarding, and especially lowriding. In celebration of these pastimes and the art, clothing, and photography that’s inherent in their history, Hurley teamed up with Tribal Gear to throw their first Legacy Show at the Hurley headquarters in Costa Mesa, California. We hope it’ll become a yearly tradition and, based on the turnout, we’d be surprised if it didn’t. Best of all, it was free admission!
Lowriders and lead sleds were out in force with clubs such as the Viejitos, Majestics, Imperials, Pegasus, Strays, Elite, Groupe, Ragtops, Beatniks, and Usuals in attendance. This was a totally family friendly environment with food, an art gallery, a DJ spinning oldies, and perfect California weather to top it all off. You could also check out skateboarding on an indoor ramp, clothing for sale, and even a vintage skateboard collection and hand-painted surfboards by the likes of Tim Hendricks, Big Sleeps, Albert De Alba, Manny Cisneros, 2Shae, and the 7th Letter. Photography by The Dead End Brothers, California Sundays, and Bobby Tribal could be seen in the gallery and sales of surfboards and photography went to benefit Waves for Water.
We’ll wind down our babbling now and let you check out some of the cool rides that showed up including lowrider legends Gypsy Rose and El Rey. Enjoy.
