Embassy would like to thank World Cup Skateboarding, ESPN and FUELTV for inviting Steven Pineiro to this years Xgames 16 and The Maloof Money Cup. Steven took up the offer and accepted the invite although he would say, “riding bowls is more his arena”. He KILLED the VERT RAMP @ XGames & the Maloof. 4th place for the games on his first trip was RAD!! He did melon 5’s, indy 5’s, stalefish 5’s, eggplants, lip trick’s, huge frontside Alley-oop’s, big backside airs. He had fun with it! in the Maloof Money Cup, he finished 3rd, received a few bucks, and got a black cup w/ alot of bling on it. CONGRATS STEVEN!
Ben Johnson was on hand the whole time along with Priscilla Lee and her little brother Alex. We got to skate EVERYDAY, sometimes 3-4 different spots a day. Everywhere from Ben Butler’s backyard sickness of a Pool, to the Costa Mesa YMCA Vert Ramp, to the Venice Skatepark, (Thanks Dan and the crew @ JUICE), Dave Reul’s Skateranch, Volcom Skatepark in Costa Mesa, The Combi, and everywhere in-between. Thanks to all the people who gave a helping hand. The Lee Family, The Russell’s, Savannah & Gage Boan, Barry & Kelsey Millay. The trip was RAD. We’ll be back!! Now it’s off to Oregon for the Tri-Fecta!!
