Alex Jumelin visits Studio City Lot.

Yesterday I started riding solo and as the day progressed, riders came through one by one. By the end of the day we had an Unexpected visitor....Alex Jumelin!

Alex was on his way back to L.A. from Vegas and stopped by the lot. We had a quick session before heading out to eat dinner.

Ben Q. - The man who does it all.

So, I'm at riding Studio City and decide to text yo' boy, Ben Q., to see if he wants to ride.
He writes back, "I'm about to go on stage."
"On stage?!...." I reply.
"Yeah, at Universal City Walk, 7pm."

City walk is across the freeway from the Studio City Parkinglot. So I rushed over to check it out!

Ben is in a band called "Project Dirty" and he creates the beats...

Ben Q. is a skateboarder.

Ben Q. is a flatlander.

Ben Q. is a father to a cowboy and Karate kid with nun-chucks!
