KINETIC skate shop hosted the ZERO Halloween tour down at the 7th street spot. Many greats attended like jamie thomas, chris cole, and jimmy carlin to name a few. The spot really couldn’t home the great talent they possess but they made the best out of it and had a good time shredding. i had to make the best out of a hotshoe flash as well.

After all the hard work Andrew Po, HOMEBASE skate shop, the town of Bethlehem and who ever else helped with contributing to this fine yet incomplete plaza. ITS FINALLY HERE! On behalf of all the skaters we would like to say thanks.
Heres the recap of the 2nd day of the grand opening, July 17th 2010. The day was marked for skateboarding only and hosted events such as a demo featuring pros/ams- Josh kalis, wes kremer, ishod wair, tom asta and many other rippers. Also skate shop only competitions such as a Game of Skate, best trick on different obstacles through out the park, as well as autograph signings, raffles and ofcourse the product toss for the kids.
Heres some of the highlights of the event.
Jeff Pang attended

the infamous product toss.
.And with no surprise reign skate shop takes best overall team to win this friendly competition. Ishod wair winning best trick, and tom asta winning the the game of skate.
It was a great and beautiful day in the town of Bethlehem, pa. And had to be an even greater day for Andrew Po and the ones that had this vision years ago. And lets not forget the plaza is only about 1/3’s complete and they still need money to complete the whole thing!
For more photos from this event, ill be adding them on facebook in a few days. http://www.facebook.com/AZwallace
Stay tuned for this past wednesdays photoshoot. Will be posted on my website so check back periodically.
Im not really a blogger, first one since december, but this event was way to good to pass. So casually browsing hypebeast.com on a random thursday afternoon, i noticed a mini banner at the top of the screen advertising OTW. So im like word, ill check it out. Already being a fan of the otw advocates as an artist and photographer. It ended up being a blog for them and while scrolling i noticed they were headed to New York City. Me thinking it was pretty cool, i scrolled down a little more an saw they were headed to philly. Slightly hyped, i continued to read for the date. Once i saw the date it was being i held, i rushed to see what the days date and if i had missed it or not. Psyched not to be bummed for missing it, it was the next day. At that point i knew forsure that the night of the party would be a night to remember, simply because of the grace of god for me to see it at the last minute.
So Friday comes and i head down around 9, arriving at the location around 10 something. Literally took me like 45 minutes to find a freakin parking spot.. I normally would be over it for taking so long and would go skate philly or go home, but i knew the opportunity were to good to pass up. My main reason and mission for going, was to meet Atiba Jefferson. He is like the most well known skate photographer of our time. Finally parked and inside UBIQ, i see one of my dudes J-Atcheli and say what ups and immediately ask if “The Blackouts” were still there, yes. then headed up stairs in pursuit. it was nuts, tons of heads.
Finally after the navigating my way through the hypebeast, hipsters and party goons, i reach the Dj booth. To my surprise whos on the Table.
Settling down, took some party vibe photos.
Spotted Eric and Dimitri
Pete Rock called next.
Had to get the two halves of the black outs. AKO and Atiba Jefferson. They were really good dudes.
Party ended, and UBIQ was kicking everyone out like a riot, i wasn’t going anywhere. thank god i looked legit enough with all my camera gear with me, so i stayed after with all the important people. you know how i do 😉
HADD to get a photo with atiba, current best and future next 😉
Atiba and Dimitri.
THE ENDER. last shot with the fellas, shotgun beer photo.
OVERALL, seriously one of the best nights of my life. Living out in Snoresville PA. and always being bored out of my mind and knowing what my lifestyle is totally capable of being and for me to have a taste of it was fantastic. Even thou i am going to give it %200 percent to get where i want to be, that night was just a reassurance i will use the next time im down and in need of motivation. Just want to thank all the OTW advocates and especially Atiba for being open and inviting that night. And Its one thing thats really funny about the night, ive neevvverr had the taste buds beer, thou ive developed the tolerance. But Ako passed me a beer and it was literally the first beer ive ever enjoyed. Best sign ever. This is how beer taste when your on top.
