The Los Desperados x Bat Skates show at Hurley this weekend was insane. My brother Tom Vadakan curated the show and was all smiles witnessing the immense turnout. Over 700 people showed up to support the phenomenal art, bands, and food that kicked of the event. It was cool to see Southern California surf/skate culture continue to thrive at a show like this.
Visiting the Hurley HQ was a treat as well… their campus is pretty amazing, a 3 or 4 different building that were strictly designated as design, showroom, finance, and even an indoor skatepark! Damn. I couldn’t help but imagine a Poketo campus…. it would be art gallery, cafe, restaurant, work studio, film lab, an everything design lab, artist residency, concert and karaoke space…. one day my friends, one day.
