"Baker 4" Premiere Photos
I started to write an intro for this post and then realized it doesn’t need one. You’re going to watch this video no matter what I have to say about it—it speaks for itself. Regardless, here’s some photos from the Baker 4 premiere this past Thursday night at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown LA. Wait, I actually do have one thing to say about the video: All hail Baca!

Jerry Hsu: People I've KnownThroughout two decades of pro skating, Jerry has encountered a wide cast of characters. Here are his quick impressions of those people who have added to a lifetime of memories.
"Lotties Skateshop Must Be Stopped" VideoThis is everything you could ever want from a skateboarding video. Sit back and enjoy. Then hit the streets...

"Boys of Summer 2" ArticleThe cast of this second video rotated in and out on each trip. Since BOS is not a company so much as a group of friends, it’s a real mixed bag of potatoes.
