Trevor got some.

A tired Turtle, grabbing one more ride…
And for this dude, who was so stoked on the beach…
nice ride brother.
What happens when you let your friend play with the water camera….
Rude boy Ralphie Brasacchio, having fun at Refuphio.
So here comes Summer. Get used to that longboard Goleta.
It ain’t too shabby.
