Got to jump in the van and go up to Santa Barbara with the Habitat team on their "Highways and Byways" tour.

Finally got to check out the Church of Skatan which is located in an actual old church.

Got the grand tour over at Powell. I managed to sneak off a few photos walking around.

    International globetrotter Marius Syvanen lands in North Africa, shreds some sweet spots with his squad and helps put the finishing touches on a new skatepark. Solid trip!

    WKND Lunch Ramp Tour Video
    With a nod to Jeremy Klein, the WKND boys hit the road Hook Ups style and put together a launch-ramp-infused tour, complete with a box for the top of the van and Willy Santos in tow. It’s called skateboarding. It’s supposed to be fun.

    The WKND crew took a U-Haul full of ramps to the desert and things got weird. They may not have located Animal Chin but they found Josh Beagle so we’d call it a unanimous success. Warning: there will be nudity.

    Rough Cut: Austyn Gillette's “Radiant Cure” FORMER Part
    Any Austyn footage is golden and this Rough Cut is 17 minutes of pure, unfiltered shredding. He’s simply one of the best to ever do it.

    OJ Wheels' "Elite" Vol. 1
    The OJ's crew is thick, with enough styles and approaches to please even the saltiest skater haters. If you can’t find some joy in this Elite vid then you’re probably a closet scooterer.
