It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! The yuletide joy was shredding around yesterday in LA at Lincoln Park. Hundreds of bros came out for product tossed presents and to skate with the Baker x Deathwish teams at the annual Baker Boys Christmas Demo.

3/17/2017The Boss was only 19 when he got the top honor and was just starting to come out of his Turtle Boy shell. Supercuts, filming for The End, the start of Baker, "feeling feelings" and why SOTY is more important than the US presidency – all covered in this candid trip down memory lane.
3/14/2017Figgy sparks the final episode with a rail attack before breakfast, and Raven brings down the curtains with a noseblunt slide straight from the heavens. Skkrrrrttt!
3/13/2017The SOTY Down Unda crew fires it up, only to get stymied by a human skatestopper. Ishod skids big and Kwalks snags the cover.
3/07/2017Talk about INSANE TERRAIN! The crew kicks off their south of the border romp by skating some of the craziest concrete creations on the planet.
3/02/2017If you haven’t seen it yet, the short film Year 13 is a visual feast. Here Jim talks about the painstaking efforts he and everyone involved faced in terms of both skating and technical production. Thanks for the work of art, Jim.
