Johann Chan and friends made it over to California recently for the S&M 30th anniversary bash.

Here’s what Johann had to say about this one: “Featuring one of my favourite new school riders Benedict Zartost, Diversion film maker legend Bobby Carter, Huntington Beach legend Gabe Weed & Carpark moonie legend Rich Slezak.
