    Skateboarding culture…and the art inspired by it…is alive and well. And the legendary Thrasher Magazine and Oakley are making sure of it – as the two iconic names closed out 2011 with the publication’s 30th anniversary and the Love and Guts Art Show at the Lab in Costa Mesa, Calif. With a feeling of nostalgia of the skateboarding’s storied past, a celebration of the sport’s future and an appreciation for art/photography – skate legends Lance Mountain, Christian Hosoi, Neckface, Michael Sieben and Patrick O’Dell showcased their work at the exhibit – while Vans skateboarder Ray Barbee threw down some tunes as a spirited soundtrack for the festivities. With two local skate shop “takeovers” – BLENDS and CARVE (strong Oakley supporters) – Oakley’s unique history was also on display with a vibrant product time line.
