Making Dreams Comes True
The event also made an eight-year old boy, Zack Wenner’s wish come true. Wenner who is suffering from Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis had a dream to meet the cast from Storage Wars (his favorite show) that has given him a way to escape his painful condition. His dream came true when he not only met the cast, but also actually got to bid in the live auction against them. The auction took a heartwarming turn when one of the cast members, Sheets actually bid on an autographed helmet on Wenner’s behalf. His mother, Tiffany Wenner said, “you guys made his night unforgettable and one of the of the happiest moments in his life.”
Sponsors included: Prodigy Entertainment, All Smiles Solutions, Evan’s Lager, Pabst Beer, Status Vodka, Karma Tequila, The Wine Artist, Night & Day Productions, Socially Sweet Events and Wee Man´s Chronic Taco´s.

Seeing an Endsession gets you up the noses of people who play music for a living and a once in a lifetime experience BUT it’s not like you can pop up and stage and out-perform the stinky band members at their own songs. We got out of bed extra early, 11a, on a Saturday and picked up bands Grouplove and Young The Giant for some crazy karting fun at K1 Speed in Redmond.It was an opportunity to be better than the band at something none of us had much experience doing…
There’s something about being poor, on the road and skinny and going super fast in a kart. When race driving something so light, potato chips and xbox doesn’t often equal a great training regiment! Evidently Young The Giant are staying thin on their tour bus as guitarist Eric managed to go fastest of all band members!
Grouplove’s Christian and Hannah seem so nice to one another off the track. Then you get them racing next to one another and the intensity shows its dark side!
Bands tour together for months without much break and become friends on the road. Our K1 experience took place on the final stop of a long tour and they couldn’t have been more ready to goof off together!
So fun! Thanks to K1 for having us and Mat Hayward for taking the best photos!

Sanuk Surfing America Prime presented by Got Milk?
Huntington Beach Pier, March 17 & 18, 2012
We acquire the strength we have overcome.—Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Sanuk Surfing America Prime presented by Got Milk? at the Huntington Beach Pier last weekend was cold, windy and scary!
The Huntington Beach experience started pleasantly enough on Wednesday in perfect hollow peaks with the beginning of a three-day PacSun USA Surf Team training camp. The team members rotated through three coaching segments. The f
