SOTY 2015 Party

On a cold, rainy Friday night in SF, the skate world found shelter for the crowning of AVE as Skater of the Year. Thanks to everyone that came out and to Hongry and The Spits for providing the soundtrack.

    Quasi's "Mother" Video
    The skating is superb, but this video is so much more than a collection of incredible clips. The music rips, the editing is perfectly in step and we have nothing but good things to say. Long live the full-length project...

    Das Days premiered in São Paulo and adidas put together a trip for the occasion. The video tells part of the story but the article is the whole meat buffet. Dig in!

  • Lizzie Does The Loop

    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
