Last night at the infamous Saloon in Encinitas, California, DC Shoes closed out its am video project, Skateboarding Is Forever, with the highly-anticipated Wes Kremer part. DC hooked up free beer, the LSDJs (Gabe and Richie Belton) handled the tunes, and the Saloon got packed with skaters from all over San Diego. If you haven’t seen it yet, peep Wes’ part here, then scroll down for the pics.

It’s Miller time! I wasn’t taking a picture of you handsome dude on the right that doesn’t fit at a video premiere.
Duncombe started a “Kre-mer, Kre-mer, Kre-mer” chant. Jesus Christ, can you find a girl in this photo? F—k.
Lupher and Wes.
Hookah? Massive bud? Hold on just a second, I just realized DC is handling two drinks in one hand like some sort of futuristic, genetically perfect, bar adapted prehensile monkey tail. Truly impressive.
No, it’s just Clairemont’s Davey Dread!

Fedoras are the new flipped-up bill hat, bro. Blowing it.

Once the smoke cleared and a lot of skaters left, you could actually see girls there! God, I wish we had a funny Street Boners caption that fit this one.
Interning at TransWorld—it’s like a rocket ride straight to the top.
Car bombs at last call? Solid move. Thanks DC!
