Here’s some photos from the Los Angeles premiere of Pretty Sweet. The Girl/Chocolate family never let down when it comes to video productions and spare no cost to make them epic, memorable and timeless. There aren’t going to be many more big video premieres like this in the future so this was one to soak in and enjoy. Thanks to Meza, Carroll and Smyth for hooking up tickets to one epic night. And make sure to check out our new issue hitting newsstands next week with a PrettySweet feature.

The day started off with a little Andele bearings session with Ray Maldonado, Joey Brezinski, Carlos Ribiero, Pete Eldridge and more at the Gardena park. Straight to the Internet video edit coming soon.

Finally made it in to check out the digs. Really nice. (you thought I was going to say Pretty Sweet didn’t you?)
Barbier, Dawes and Cliver. That’s a heavy line up right there.

Just so you know, it didn’t start at zero.
Now that is truly a heavy line-up. The entire Girl/Chocolate family. Respect.

Hell yeah, we’re proud to have Raven Tershy on the cover or our new Dec/Jan issue. His part ruled.

Then Daryl Angel got beat up by security. It got kinda gnarly.
Looks like the security guard got popped pretty hard. And good night.
