Just after Surf Expo the O’Neill wakeskate bros got together at Battle Falls to do some team shredding, bonding, and photo-shooting. It’s always a good time when you get to mix crazy old vets like Scott Byerly and Aaron Reed with young(ish) bucks like Nick Taylor and Andrew Fortenberry. Throw Bret Little and Ollie Moore into the scene and you’ve got a recipe for a hell of a good time. The guys spent a couple days at Battle Falls and winching around Orlando just having some fun and putting down some solid riding. I got to hang out and capture them getting captured – whether it was Aaron’s super pro posing abilities, Ollie’s first time at Battle Falls, Scott almost breaking his wrist, or more of Aaron’s super pro posing abilities. Here’s a look at some of what went down at the newly redesigned Battle Falls.

Always stoked
