Jake Hayes Goes Pro
Jake’s a big dude. You know what that means? Regular spots look small but that’s not a problem because Jake likes to go big! With huge pop and a powerful style, Jake Hayes has been handling shit in Australia for a while. About a year and a half ago, Jake (with help from his sponsors) put up the cash for a Visa and made the move to the States. Since then he’s been steadily paying his dues: traveling with Deathwish, Dickies and New Balance, always handling shit on the road and all over Southern California. If you ask Dustin Dollin about Jake he'll tell you, “He’s a quiet kid who doesn’t drink. I hate that about him. But the fact that he can deal with Dane Burman as a friend is a plus in my book. Jake’s a true skate rat.” You saw the footage in Deathwish Part One and Jake is showing no signs of slowing down, so Ellington, Greco and the rest of the Deathwish gang let it be known: Jake Hayes is pro! —Joe Hammeke

7/12/2018Owner of one of the fiercest flicks in the game, Lizard barges in his own direction, unafraid to drop himself into disastrous situations.
7/03/2018Palace ditched the VHS for an even more outdated form of technology: the Betamax. And what better place for a trial run than Hawaii? Check the article from the August issue of the mag with photos by Arto and Atiba.
7/02/2018It starts with a bloody head and just gets heavier from there. Jon Dickson put in WORK on his Deathwish Part Two part. You didn’t think those holes in his jeans were for fashion, did you?! Big Jon slays.
6/26/2018The REAL van reached the end of the line on the Actions REALized Tour at the 5th Annual Roll For Rob, to support East Coast skate community pillar Rob Pontes through his fight with ALS. This year the crews at Theory and Civil skateshops hosted the event at Skaters Edge Indoor Park. The support for Rob Pontes and his family was amazing to see and everyone had a good time. We love you, Rob!
6/18/2018No sophomore-slump-sequel here, Lizard and Dickson deliver in spades, making Part Two of the Deathwish experience just as epic as the first.
