Burnout: Burnout: Milwaukee Gold
Met up with Mugs for a tour of his vast treasure trove.
Tip o' the iceberg.
Hitz on standby.
No stranger to ephemera coveting.
Beteljeuse, Alf … you know, the standard shit.
Don't think he's not DFL, either. That's the original subscription cover on that '85 Gonz cover.
An underappreciated genre of skate collecting – crap skateboards.
Seemingly garbage, actually Lucero artwork on this Variflex.
Shred ready, too.
Stack of forsaken Turf IDs.
Where's this shredder now?
Autographed Morrissey stub, NBD.
Ok, definitely time to go skate.
The fabulous Estabrook build!
Starring … this thing!
Free air, up for grabs.
Rory on that 43 to D.
Next level tailgrab varial flip!
A local's float.
Crap tap. That's what they used to call 'em anyway.
You probably recognized those two in the middle.
Gas tank as flat bar.
Jungle pocket floater.
The patented cab 43! Must be nice.
Too much shredding, but time to get to Cream City.
Thanks Estabrook builders! Amazing shit!
Oh crap. I'm late.
Line out the door.
Inside, Leo warms up on the red.
But soon started cranking. KF front board down...
Flash n roll up!
SOTY '94, frontside flip the Cali-table replica.
Then Westcool plows it under with the half-cab heel.
Top shelf Nolder grind.
Then he jumped the whole Pier 7!
Sciano flicks tré.
Frontside flip fly over.
Hsu and Vincent work the bank.
Then Raven pushes the outer limits of the frontside thrust.
Some classic SF wall work from Carroll – impromptu slob attack!
You're welcome Bublitz!
Spider, wall walking in the black hole corner.
Jerry delivers the Hoo-Soo grind on command these days. I know, right?!
That's Water's cue.
'Ughh, no coconut water?'
Despite the lack of photos, this demo was Biebel's show. He was killing it nonstop with the kind of technical moves better captured by moving pictures. Nollie flip back tail was all I could get!
The crowd was totally behind him.
Boss, lofts in the corner.
You better believe it!
They skated until there were no more tricks left to perform. One of the best demos I've ever seen!
Meanwhile, upstairs in the new bowl …
This is where Hitz is the star!
Collin slides bluntly. Sick pit!
Golden hour, Wisconsin style.
Thanks again, Bill!
You too, Casey.
Rounding up the troops.
See you next time, Cheeseheads! On to Des Moines!
9/20/2019Vans threw a big contest last weekend with a bunch of skaters you don’t usually associate with the words “organized competition.” Tyler Bledsoe, Breana Geering, Taylor Kirby, Austyn Gillette, Simon Bannerot, Mason Silva and hella more throw down the gauntlet for some fun in the OC sun.
9/20/2019Another new Nike video?! Yep, Trust Fall premiered last Friday in Hollywood, chock-a-block with skateboarding’s glitterati.
9/20/2019Tony Alva invented the frontside air, the skater attitude and maybe even the dirt ‘stache. It’s about time he got his own documentary! OC’s glitterati converged for the very special premier of The Tony Alva Story.
9/20/2019Vans rolled out the red carpet to celebrate Elijah Berle’s hotly-anticipated signature shoe – we’re talking skate jams, party busses, baller-ass spreads and the hip-hop stylings of Soulja Boy. Burnout could barely keep up. Congrats, Eli!
9/20/2019How do you beat getting your own shoe? How about a getting a skatepark, a car and a party for all your friends and family? Congrats, Big Lou!
9/20/2019The OC and ATL’s finest converge to celebrate Grant Taylor’s 20 years on Volcom with a skate jam, killer bands, bros, babes, Big Hongry and the premier of Lannie Rhoades’ epic GT documentary. Cheers, Stoners!
9/20/2019The two-day tornado of rock, rap and radical known as the Thrasher Death Match whipped into the Big Apple recently with brain-scrambling maneuvers sharing space with hellacious pits – plus all the ferocity that names like Omar Hassan, The Gza, Kader Sylla, Gorilla Biscuits, Roman Pabich, Roc Marciano and Pedro Delfino conjure up. A Bill Thomas photo show offered a glimpse into NY skateboarding’s golden age and the whole thing was free! Where were you???
9/20/2019After a big night it’s time to either sweat out the poison or try to soak it up. Alltimers attempted both with a donut-fueled skate jam at Fat Kid the morning after the Death Match. Burnout prefers chocolate old fashioneds!
9/20/2019Kreiner and crew grab some sky time, Weiss gets worked and Clay’s epic part premiers. Y’all seen that thing, right?!!
9/20/2019The old guard and yüng bucks vie for sky time and have a blast on Mothra's new swingset.
