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!

    When you pack this many rippers into an RV and hit the highway for a few months, the result is pretty obvious: absolute spot desecration! The full rampage rolls out on Monday.

    Barging doubles at a spot that’s barely wide enough for one, GT and Omar handle biz where few others would stand a chance while on Volcom's RV Rampage tour.

    It’s that time of the year – video surprises around every corner! Louie Lopez dropped a heck of a bombshell and Volcom and Thrasher offered a sneak peek of his latest masterwork at the Good Bar in Long Beach last night, (which magically aligned on his 23rd birthday.) Cheers, Big Lou!
