Spring Update

Kicking things off right, we'd like to give a big shout-out to our local boy, Walker Ryan, who's landed his first magazine cover. Here he is holding the April 2013 issue of Transworld Skateboarding, one of the premier mags in the industry:

Walker just recently had a part in Transworld's skateboarding film Perpetual Motion which premiered last week in L.A. and San Francisco. The cover was the cherry on top for the year he's spent filming for the video.

Walker's parents have been drinking Karl Lawrence since he first stepped on a skateboard and we've been lucky enough to see him shredding the sidewalks of St. Helena for the last 20 years. 

He was instrumental in our town's mission to build a skatepark, and has never forgotten his roots despite his constant flux of global travel. Even his shaggy 16-year-old sillouhette can be seen in the middle of the park's sign!

If you've been by the office, you've seen his first pro-model skateboard hanging on the wall. By your next visit, we should have the mag hanging next to it. Here's a closer look:

Make sure to get a copy for yourself. They'll be hitting stores and stands this week. For more on Transworld and Perpetual Motion, check out skateboarding.transworld.net.

In other news, Cycling Team Karl Lawrence recently summited Mt. Diablo. Here's Ric, Bob Fores, Mark Jensen, and Dave Jamieson to prove it:

The mountain earns its name by providing 4,000 ft. of elevation in just a 10-mile climb. The crew logged a total of 35 miles for the trip.

And for all of you wondering about our inventory:

- All of our Aldin is sold out! 
- Only a few case of '09 remain. 
- The '10 is selling at a fast clip.  
- The '10 Reserves should be released in late March, after the bottles are labeled.

That's it for now. If you have any ordering questions and/or bicycle requests, you can email ric@karllawrence.com.

Karl Lawrence says Aloha

Albert Holt has been with us since the early days. Here's him and Cheryl in Hawaii. 

Al took Ric and Cheryl to the Top of Waikiki and gave them his two cents on the plethora of great Hawaiian golf links.

Besides drinking Karl Lawrence, Albert stays busy running AL's Kona Coffee. Give them a look! www.alskonacoffee.com
