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

Two covers heating it up this month: Raven Tershy nose grabbing a back tail way over vert at FDR and Figgy getting crooked down a 24-stair monster. Tons more Stay Flared tour highlights inside, 20 pages if you're counting. Other travel tales include an epic Dubai mission for We Are Blood and the Asphalt Yacht Club voyages to Hawaii. Tom K and Frank Shaw both get the Heads treatment and music-wise we got interviews with Morrissey and Slayer, so that's worth the admission price alone.
