Last Thursday in Ocean Beach, skaters, family members and friends gathered at Culture Brewing to celebrate the world premier of LEFTY, a documentary featuring Stevie “Lefty” Breeding. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Stevie’s story, he lost his right arm in a car accident driving back to San Diego from Tehachapi at the age of 13. At the time we were just starting to skate together more frequently, and this awful news shook our crew to its core. But as this mini doc demonstrates, Stevie never let this obstacle in his life hold him back from becoming the man he is today. In fact, it purely motivated him to skate even harder, and this unfortunate loss would later help him gain renowned sponsors like DC, Creature, and Pacific Drive to name a few. Lefty has always been a source of inspiration for me personally, skating through life with power and a smile on his face. I’m honored to call him one of my closest friends, and all of SD couldn’t be more proud of your big night! Hope you enjoy these recap photos from the festivities, big ups to Lefty!
