Surf Fest IV

Sid “The Package” Abruzzi’s Waterbrothers has been supporting skating and surfing since 1971, and for the past four years he’s thrown an annual shindig in Newport, RI of skate and surf history called the Surf Fest, and Big Tim put together a ramp for this year’s Fest and invited TA to come out and ride. Acres of skateboards and surf boards dating back decades littered the lawn and lined the walls, supplemented by Skatopia’s Brewce Martin, who brought a sizeable chunk of his quiver. Surf legend Peter Townend made an appearance. Sunny skies prevailed, killer tunes set the mood, East Coast legends mingled, food and beverages were on hand, and ripping went down until the sun set. Thanks for the good time Package, and for all you do. –Wez Lundry

Whichever environmentally aware recycling advocate designed this dummy, they obviously had Sid in mind.

The King of the Road issue never fails to serve up its own special recipe for brutality. This year, reigning champs Birdhouse went head to head with Element and Flip in an all-out no-holds-barred battle for the crown. Beers were butt-chugged, records were shattered (along with a leg) and insanity ensued with every page turn of the book. Included with this issue is the Hell of a Year DVD which contains the heaviest hits from thrashermagazine.com in 2014.
