Who doesn’t love a good surprise? When it was time to let the cat out of the bag for our hometown hero Wes Kremer with his groundbreaking cover of our June issue, we got photographer Mike Blabac and a bunch of the Sk8mafia heads to roll over to Wes’ house in Carmel Valley. Before we knew it, Wes’ mom was bringing us snacks in the backyard and Wes fired up his iPod speakers with his Krusty K mixtape and we hung out for hours. So enjoy this afternoon at the Casa De La Kremer with the Sk8mafia, Mike Blabac, Wes’ family, and more.
