The Am Project | Arto's Photos From Chicago
Aug 8, 2013 11:42 AM CDT

If you received a copy of the latest CCS catalog in the mail this month, you'll have noticed the entire CCS Am Project team on the cover. Shot by CCS Pro and go-to staff photographer, Arto Saari, the cover shot was the culmination of the team's epic skate trip to Chicago. For an entire weekend the team hit the streets with Arto and shut down as many spots as possible featured in the image gallery below. Have a look at the extensive gallery below and get familiar just how hard some of the CCS Am Project 2012 riders can rip.  

Be sure to check out for more pinny imagery.
