Our good friend and contributing photographer, Aaron Smith, went to Kansas City to start working on a full interview with Sean Malto so he hopped in the van with Ty Evans and drove out a few weeks back. Here’s a sneak peak at what went down. Chocolate’s own Stevie Perez came out and got some bangers too. Check back for our Sean Malto & Friends “Straight to the Internet” exclusive video this Friday.

Stevie taking this 50-50 all the way down only to stick on the wood at the bottom. Worth it?

The face of a winner.
Ty, Malto, Joseph, and Chris Roberts watching the slam Malto just took.
Sliced legs are no fun. Just ask Sean.
A friendly neighbor whose house overlooks the spot saw Sean go down and thought he would come out and lend a hand. He patched Sean up in no time.
You can’t win them all.
Sean’s friend, Nick Mathews, back Smiths this rail with ease in Detroit.
