Just over two weeks ago something really cool happened — Beau Cottington invited a whole bunch of blade pioneers to get together for a session at the Ocean Beach skatepark here in San Diego. From local legends to far-flung cele-bladers like Dion Anthony and Blade Dennis, and even the LA contingency of Dave Paine, B Luv, Randy Spizer and more — if you were lucky enough to strap up at the session and add to the mix, you will probably never forget. For everyone else, here’s a grip of photos snapped by Steve Steinmetz and his assistant-for-the-day Shelby Whitcomb.
