Salba's 50th Birthday

Salba hit the big 50, and they celebrated with a party at the Fontana Skatepark. The Flame Throwers (his band) and the Skatetanic Rednecks provided the live music, and the Taco Dudes hooked up tacos for all. Malba, Omar Hassan, Justin Strubing, Josh Borden, Screech, Josh Mattson, Tristen Rennie, and a bunch of Badlanders came to celebrate and skate with Salba. 50 years old and he's been skating 40 of them. Happy birthday, down for life!

    Yesterday, some of the top-rated female skaters gathered at the Vans skatepark in Orange, CA, for the Girls Combi Classic. The competition continues to get gnarlier and this year was no exception. Check the shredding here. Girl power!

    With Chris Gregson filming and a stacked crew rolling in, this Masher Pacific Northwest video is killer. If this doesn't make you wanna shred then you hate skateboarding.
