Greetings from Los Angeles

by giuli 27 April 2010

Los Angeles, second and last stop for my US visit. I’ve been crashing at Nick Trapasso’s and Neen Williams’s house for the fist two days: tipical skater house with plenty of beers and house guests, and a tatoo machine that never stops! Everybody coming through the place might get a tatoo, artwork provided by Nick or Neen.
Finally we go out on a sesh, and what a sesh! Some well known faces in the worldwide skateboarding scene as you can see in the picture above from left to right: Neen Williams, Cole Matthews, Benny Fairfax, Nick Trapasso, Julian Davidson, Andrew Brophy.

For the last two days I stayed at Federico Vitetta’s, a.k.a. Feds, originally from Milano, Italy, then moved to LA. Feds, besides being filming for years along with Ty Evans and Spike Jonze for the Crailtap Fam, couple years ago went Tm for Lakai. There i was roomies with Daniel Espinoza, new am for Lakai and Chocolate, too damn stylish. So we’re out on another mission, i even manage to squeeze in my boy Derrick Wilson, (the other Affiliate Skateboards rider in Cali along with Neen Williams), and little Espinoza takes us to a secret spot where someone (probably Berra?) planted this mimetic ledge, and we proceed with some filming. Raymond Molinar shows up too, and it’s on…

Unfortunately i can’t give you the bangers (not many anyways since you get kicked out so often in Socal), but i can at least share these few images to hopefully give you the gist…
