We took a trip to Barcelona with the FOFA Hardware squad to link up with Miles Silvas in Spain along with Kevin Bradley and Blake Johnson. From skating all over the city, learning the Metro system, brushing up on our Spanish, getting kicked out of our Airbnb, and the endless pitchers of sangria – it was a trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives.

BEST WISHES TO EVERYONE IN 2017 – THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!
On Sunday, November 20th we held our 5th consecutive community dinner in Venice. It’s not just about giving back to the less fortunate, it’s about doing something positive in our neighborhood, and bringing everyone together to enjoy a meal and feel good about ourselves. Thank you to everyone that helps carry this tradition on, may it last forever.
We’d like to introduce our good friend and new editor to the blog, Michael Soto – He’s a photo journalist from the Bay Area that we met skateboarding in Venice about 10 years ago and remained close friends ever since. “I like to shoot everything from food to portraits but I primarily shoot street photography, the freedom aspect of it is something Ive always enjoyed & you never know what your going to get in the streets theres always a new image to create.” Keep up with Mike as he travels the world and documents it through photographs right here on the TF website – checkout some of his work below.
