To commemorate Jaime Reyes getting an Actions REALized pro board, the REAL team flew her to SF for a trip with the crew. What she didn’t know is that they also planned a surprise birthday party for her with Skate Like A Girl, Unity and 510 Skate Shop at the Rockridge curbs. Spirits were high and everyone had a great time celebrating all things Jaime. Scroll down to see all the action. —Christian Alexander
