  • Corey Glick’s Pro Surprise

    Corey Glick’s Pro Surprise
    Corey Glick turned pro for Foundation Skateboards at Active Long Beach the other day. It was disguised as a team signing/newlywed gifting for Aidan Campbell and Cole Wilson. If you’ve been keeping up with Corey, you know he’s been smashing things up on King of the Road and his pro model is well deserved. Congrats, Corey!

    Evan continues his onslaught and K Walks goes Zero Sunday with Jamie Thomas on board. Then there's Dakota's bent-ass rail of death. Heavy week!

    If the pigs feet and dog coats didn't raise the red flag, the $600 in pizza definitely did the trick. No wonder the budget's f--ked.

    The Etnies Lake Forest park is a skate wonderland with endless possibilities. Established pros and new blood from Foundation and Toy Machine did their best to destroy the place. Featuring Leo Romero, Collin Provost, Dakota Servold, Blake Carpenter, Corey Glick and many more.
