Burnout: Friday Night Lights
Well, it's come to an end. I've squeezed the last zit of action out of my Southwest Toy Machine trip.
Mad heads at the El Paso demo.
You know Johnny loves a demo.
Matt B sparks it with the tire jump.
Hardflip focus group.
Butch goes Big Air Budro.
Collin oops it up.
Leo dug into the greatest hits.
'Why do you laugh, Abuela?' 'Because the little one, he bust his ass.'
As is his style, Ed shut it down. The kids poured in from the sidelines.
Like a bunch of kids, these good lookin' young people came over from Juarez for the demo. Nice.
Afterparty/ video premiere at a jungle-themed nightclub.
Mike does some of that grassroots shit.
Johnny excels in these settings.
New technology means we can enjoy embarrasing late-night moments over and over.
Someone stole Daniel's backpack, then decided to bring it back. Thanks?
Write an essay on what 'High Gravity" malt liquor is.
Our uber host, Jesse.
Not much left but some bullshitting and a 10-hour drive.
Thanks again, everybody.
9/21/2019Vans 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.
9/21/2019Another new Nike video?! Yep, Trust Fall premiered last Friday in Hollywood, chock-a-block with skateboarding’s glitterati.
9/21/2019Tony 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.
9/21/2019Vans 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!
9/21/2019How 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!
9/21/2019The 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!
9/21/2019The 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???
9/21/2019After 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!
9/21/2019Kreiner and crew grab some sky time, Weiss gets worked and Clay’s epic part premiers. Y’all seen that thing, right?!!
9/21/2019The old guard and yüng bucks vie for sky time and have a blast on Mothra's new swingset.
