Summer Evenings In Los Angeles Are A Revelation
Gallery: DTLA With Vissla And Jeff Ho.
Summer evenings in Los Angeles are a revelation, and last night’s release party for Vissla’s new Jeff Ho collection in Downtown LA was no exception.
As guests rolled through, tipping back tins of PBR and street tacos, Jeff made his rounds, signing fan’s decks and posing with old Zephyr teammates.
Vissla’s Vince De La Pina worked the crowd, Cam Richards and a crew kicked it, chatting with old friends, while the company’s Team Manager and absolute tubehound, Corban Campbell, looked thoroughly bronzed from last week’s hurricane swell. One of Stab’s local favs, Andrew Jacobson hobbled his way over from Malibu, the lanky goofyfoot still a few weeks from walking without crutches, and several months away from getting back on a board, but as always in high spirits, hanging in the corner eating crispy potato empanadas and chicken tacos.

Handshapes and rattle-canned lines.
Venice might churn out cold pressed juice and tech startups these days, but thirty years ago it was Suicidal Tendencies, Dogtown, and the man on the left, Jeff Ho.
Downtown Los Angeles is littered with beautiful post-industrial spaces.
The Vissla x Jeff Ho collection.
Two months after getting smoked on the reef during the first day of Cloudbreak’s mega swell earlier this year, it’s good to see Andrew Jacobson healing up and in high spirits.
What a little nugget.
We’re skeptical of anyone who’s not a fan of dogs.
An LA original is ever there was such a thing: Jeff Ho.
Head to the Vissla site to grab what’s left of the Jeff Ho collection.
