Default Desert Storm 2021 Photo Thread.

figured since we’ve officially entered Desert Storm Week and Supercat Fest West is in the bag, I’d start a new photo thread.


Monday morning at the shop.









out front of The Nuatical Inn





woke up this morning and spotted the elusive mini havasu cow grazing in front of our room. 😁😁

Sunset last night. Kids in the pool after running up to 3 dunes for the day. Windy and choppy but didn’t sweat the cigarette in the least.

It's a beautiful, timeless rig - it's worth putting money into imo! I think you'd be going in the right direction with a pair of NA 600s in your Cigarette, I loved the NA 588s in my original 30 build. Neither one of my old turds are ready for the water yet, I'll be lucky if we make Skaterfest and LOTO, much less Desert Storm next weekend. Keep posting the great pics though, all of us that can't be there appreciate them!

that is a shot to hold on to with your son at the helm. You can see the pride on both ends of the camera.... as you have said before - get them hooked young.

great shots of the hardware!
