SLUG A SLO Movement Zine

Notice the BACON SKATEBOARDS phone number 805)549.9764 recognize it? Yep Rootamental’s number since 1993 thats because we were the founders: Scott, Joel, Ethan, & Orr back in the early 2000’s

We get inspiration from renaissance multi-talented people (surfers in water and on land combined with creating provoking artwork and music). The biggest stars present in the 70’s were Richard Vanderwyk, Davey Miller, Steve Manahan and John Drury.
