This past week we were given the opportunity to go to Woodward West and have an official Razors Week in the mountains of Tehachapi, California. During the week Dre Powell, Julian Bah, Rachard Johnson, Erik Rodriguez and myself were all able to be in attendance. For many years the name “Woodward” has been associated with great skate parks and a summer destination for extreme athlete enthusiasts. Growing up I never had the opportunity to experience the camp aspect of Woodward, it was not until I turned pro that I was able to visit the facility and enjoy everything they had to offer.

Write-up by Brian Aragon

Maybe it’s the air, the high altitude, or the fact that we had finally escaped California traffic but arriving at Woodward we were all in good spirits. We soon got to meet the in-line campers who had traveled from all over the country to come skate and improve their skills. Since becoming a professional skater it has always brought me a lot of gratification to teach kids how to improve their skating due to the fact that growing up I was taught by skaters I looked up to and I still remember how meaningful it was to me.  

The majority of the week was spent skating different parks on the Woodward West Campus along with filming for some upcoming podcasts that I hope everyone enjoys! As with everything, when you're having fun the time seems to fly by and next thing we knew it was the end of the week. I can speak for everyone when I say that we had an awesome group of campers and that we all learned something new while we were there. I am already looking forward to the next time I get to return to Woodward West and forget about everything else and just skate!

Big shout out to Pam & Ritchie Velasquez along with all the staff at Woodward West for treating the whole Razors team like we were family!
