Active in Costa Rica 2 Hammeke and the Active guys stop by an orphanage and skate some spots with the locals in Costa Rica. Posted: July 14, 2011 We visited an orphanage to drop off clothes that the guys at Active had collected for donations The soccer ball we bought for warm-up hack sessions was quickly commandeered from the crew The kids were real interested in Nuge’s tattoos While they were skating outside the fence of the orphanage, one of the workers warned us that the neighborhood is sketchy and that the local drug warlords may be plotting an ambush of our van. Good to know, and on that note, we were out of there Back in a safer part of town was a skatepark in a schoolyard Daniel Chacon showed us his expertise in heel flippage Making friends with the locals can really save some time and energy when finding the good spots. Plus, as a total bonus, you make new friends who can crash on your couch if they make it to The States. Diego was our main spot guide.  He ain't no chicken, especially when it came to talking to the authorities Hubert rolled with us most every day. He really exemplified the "Go for it" attitude. Here, he blasts the transfer that Dan Pensyl had a photo of in the mag a few years ago They took us to lots of really good spots, like this hubba. Figgy pays homage to his new TM at Emerica, sliding a few front noses for Heath The locals each get a piece of it too. Diego with a back 50 The crew has gotten quite thick by the next spot, but everyone's stoked to be there. Hubert exemplifies his approach Figgy, paying in pain to get his trick in the mag Bryan took this 180 switch all the way down the ramp and more jQuery('#k2Container').addClass('Videos'); function ChangeVideoJquery(){ if(jQuery("#container").length){ jQuery('#container').css("width", "auto").html(''); }else{ jQuery('#container_wrapper').html(''); } jQuery('#playinquicktime').html("Flash"); jQuery('#playinquicktime').click(function(){window.location.reload(true);}); } Category: Other jwplayer.key="RRy5WsD2gVlBAFezTNfLhubGfPoRVQXl+tCqcA=="; Loading the player... var stretchChoice = 'fill'; jwplayer("container1955752510").setup({ file: "http://media.thrashermagazine.com/Other_CarlosCostaRica.mp4", image:"http://www.thrashermagazine.com/hwdvideos/thumbs/remote-1216.jpg", related: { file: "http://www.thrashermagazine.com/Callbacks/RelatedVideos.php?Video=1216" }, height: "406", width: "610", ga: {}, startparam: "ec_seek", backcolor:"000000", frontcolor:"000000", lightcolor:"000000", screencolor:"000000", logo: { file: 'http://www.thrashermagazine.com/videobugoverlay_thmag-1.png', link: 'http://www.thrashermagazine.com' }, sharing: { code: encodeURI("") }, primary:"flash", advertising: { client: 'googima', schedule: { adbreak1: { offset: "pre", tag: 'http://www.thrashermagazine.com/VideoAds/DFPpreroll/DFPconfig.php?zone=1216' } ,adbreak2: { offset: "post", tag: 'http://www.thrashermagazine.com/VideoAds/DFPpreroll/DFPconfig.php?Post=1&zone=1216' } } }, players: [ { type: "flash", src: "http://www.thrashermagazine.com/plugins/hwdvs-videoplayer/Jwplayer6/jwplayer.flash.swf" }, { type: "html5" } ],skin:"http://www.thrashermagazine.com/plugins/hwdvs-videoplayer/Jwplayer6/modieus.xml?NoCache=12312313" }); jwplayer().onReady(function(){jwplayer().onPlay(function(){console.log('Player Ready');})}); In a true testament that skate rats around the world will make due with whatever they've got to skate, check what Carlos can do on what little is left of his board

Dustin Dollin graces the cover of the September issue, screeching a hellacious 180 nosegrind at the Hollywood Bowl. The hits keep coming inside: Matt Bennett, Jake Donnelly and Wes Kremer get grilled; Element traverses Taiwain; Vol 4 hits the road (and the spliffs) for SXSW; a 16-page photo feature blows some stoke in your eyes; EMB OG James Kelch talks Classic Graphics and Cory Kennedy talks some shit. Yeah, that'll do it. Add this one to your collection.
