We had an epic day at the legendary Lockwood Elementary in LA yesterday. adidas and Transworld put on Daewon’s Picnic, a four-part contest using all of the school’s iconic benches and banks. LA OGs came out in droves: The Gonz, Paulo Diaz, Gabriel Rodriguez, Gino Iannucci, you name it! There were separate awards for each section, and Miles Silvas came away with the overall win (judged by Daewon, Ronnie Bertino, and Joey Suriel no less). Scroll down and read the captions to see who came out and a who put it down!
