Santa Barbara Events

Two Santa Barbara events you do not want to miss!

It is finally done. Stacy Peralta's latest film... The Bones Brigade: An Autobiography.

As a Santa Barbara native, I was always surrounded by skateboarding and surfing. There is just something about this town that breads this creatively infused lifestyle. As many of you may or may not know, Powell-Peralta is a local Santa Barbara company that has deep routs in the skateboard industry. When I say deep, I mean DEEP. The Bones Brigade docmentary is "an emotional, intimate, and exciting film about a group of dorky American boys who turned skateboarding from a fringe pastime to a thrilling action sport and a multi-million dollar industry." It currently is at Sundance in Utah and then the second showing in its history will be at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. If you thinking about watching this flick, I strongly suggest you get there early. Red Carpet event starts at 7 PM Thursday February 2, 2012 at The Arlingon Theatre. Tommy Guerro, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Lance Mountain, Mike McGill, Stacy Peralta and George Powell have all confirmed their attendance and a Q & A will be held after the show. Tony Hawk will unfortunately be out of the country and will not be able to attend. Hope to see you there!

And just as exciting is this years 2012 Quicksilver Rincon Classic presented by Channel Islands Surfboards! I love this event because it always brings together Santa Barbara's amazing surfing community and talent for a fun weekend at my favorite beach. The event was scheduled for this weekend, but due to rain it will be postponed so please check out the Surf Happens facebook page for more info or the site. 

Hope to see you there!
