I don’t have to tell you the house was packed with pretty much every skater in SD. Last night the La Jolla Museum Of Contemporary Art, which probably hasn’t had a skate video premiere since TransWorld‘s The Reason, held two capacity crowd showings of the full-length Sk8mafia video. You can probably guess who had last part, and he didn’t disappoint. After all was said and done, many people claimed some of the gnarliest footage in the video may have belonged to Jamie Palmore and Brandon Turner (who, by the way, is out of the cage and was in the theater). The Friends section is nice and long and the soundtrack has plenty of classic California gangster rap. Be sure to stick around after the credits for an introductory part of new guy Marshall Heath. Oh and today there is a massive skate jam down at Memorial Park.
And here are the photos pasted in rather than in the Flash player. Let us know what you think:

Shuriken was not happy with Jamie’s part--he said it was too gnarly. It’s tough to be a pro these days.
Look at this crew: Walker, Bo-dini, and Ryan Harris.

I had to get a photo with one of the Dons, who wouldn’t?
