Gardena Skate Park | Official Skatepark Review: The Pilot – Red Bull

We came to Joey Brezinski with the idea of checking out skateparks in Los Angeles and “rating” them for a YouTube series.

With Joey on-board, along with his imaginary(?) friend RIP, we shot and edited this pilot episode. We quickly realized Joey rates his skateparks the same way he rates his burritos: with nothing but the highest of standards. The result is a hilarious, banter-filled, and purposely over-pretentious rating from a skater who will ALWAYS suggest you go out and skate the streets of LA instead… – Red Bull

A Day in LA With Pro Skater Torey Pudwill | FIELD DAY – Red Bull

Professional Skateboarders lead a seemingly charmed life – from demos, to signings, to photoshoots, to hitting the streets for the next video part, pro skaters are considered to have the best job on earth (well, at least to us skateboarders).

However, when the tours end and the contest season has mellowed out, it’s always good to be back home and enjoy skateboarding in its greatest form: low-stress, no-deadlines, and with the good homies. This is what “Field Day” is all about.

Roll along with us as we chill with Grizzly Griptape & Thank You Skateboards’ very own Torey Pudwill for a day.
