Next stop: Portland, for a demo and signing at the Dept. of Skateboarding. The department had an eight-year run, but was shut down shortly after this demo due to the guys not being able to renew their lease. It was one of my favorite spots to skate when I lived in Portland, and really helped me get through the rainy winter months.

4/27/2017The original road trip from hell roars back to life on Viceland! Creature, enjoi and Deathwish push the tricks and torture to unheard of levels in what is seriously the gnarliest, weirdest and most ridiculous KOTR we've ever done. The TV series starts June 8th, with always-free webisodes on the Thrasher site the following day. Check the carnage to come!
4/14/2017The part was a barnburner, leaving no doubts about his elevation to the pro ranks. But to truly appreciate the part, you gotta dig into this Rough Cut. Taylor puts in WORK.

4/10/2017The most electrifying skater from one of the rockin'est crews rolling, you'll know why Deathwish turned Kirby pro before you get to the first guitar solo. Crank this joint to 11 and watch Kirby send it!
