While I was in Miami for Christmas, I had to go out to Miami Watersports Complex to catch up with the homies that were around. I talked to Gabe Menendez about coming out for a ride and film session. He didn’t let me down and, regardless of the conditions, he and Andrew Watson threw down. Check out their cool new Unit pipe Hack with kickers halfway down the middle and how the boys got creative with it. Wait until the end of the video for a short fun little "friends" bonus segment in there also.
