Oakland Skatepark

Fresh 'crete has been poured in the East Bay. If you've got the guts, venture into East Oakland and enjoy the new street plaza at the Youth Uprising center. A few Street Corner heads rolled through yesterday for a test drive.

There's a new park in East Oakland.  Although it's on the youth center premises, the neighborhood that surrounds it is a little...rough.  Not for the faint of heart

Jaky is the manager behind the movement. The official inauguration is yet to be announced

Inside we found Corey, Cairo, Cody McEntire, Russ Milligan, Adrian Williams, Jeremy Reeves, Lee Yankou, and Danny Fuenzalida

Dustin Dollin graces the cover of the September issue, screeching a hellacious 180 nosegrind at the Hollywood Bowl. The hits keep coming inside: Matt Bennett, Jake Donnelly and Wes Kremer get grilled; Element traverses Taiwain; Vol 4 hits the road (and the spliffs) for SXSW; a 16-page photo feature blows some stoke in your eyes; EMB OG James Kelch talks Classic Graphics and Cory Kennedy talks some shit. Yeah, that'll do it. Add this one to your collection.
