No Ams On The Pier

From King of the Road and the Volcom video to the Am Scramble and a new Toy Machine part on the horizon it was a no brainer to bump Axel into the pro ranks. The only question was how to do it? Ed enlisted the help of Axel’s girlfriend, Lizzie Armanto, to bring him down to his home turf of the HB Pier to drop the surprise. –Ben Karpinski

    Lizzie Does The Loop
    Ms. Armanto goes where no skateboarding woman has gone before – all the way around Tony Hawk’s notorious loop. Though many have tried, many more have gotten spat out in spectacular fashion. We caught up with Lizzie to hear about her mental and physical battle with skateboarding’s most terrifying terrain. Congrats, Lizzie! – Michael Burnett
