Traveling is fun. We here at ShoresCrew don't really know because we don't travel all that much. NOT. We're lucky enough to get to go all over the place doing fun things. It helps to do those fun things with fun people that are from that fun place. That's why when a buddy from Chile told me that a couple of his friends were coming out to compete in the flowboarding portion of The Alt Games, which airs on CBS College Sports on June 19th at 2pm, I went out of my way to show them a good time. Okay, I guess it wasn't really that far out of the way for me at all. I got to practice my spanish and they got to practice their english. They figured out the train system in Ventura, inspected the Vans skate park with Bucky Lasek, got a tour of LA, checked out the pecking order at lowers, and got to meet the infamous California girls. They came, they saw, they conquered. Check out Gerardo Joannon's Kaya Unite clothing line and for all things snowboarding in Chile go to Federico Mekis' ChileSnowboard.com
