Digging through the old crates, you find the craziest images of the strangest things… —Jake Phelps

Slob fastplants are hard tricks—and when done by Lee Ralph, they're classics. The facial alone says it all: "Eeeeaaagh!" Photo: Kevin Thatcher
Indoor pools: Two words that go great together. They called Rob Roskopp "The Barn" because he was built like one and he was from Ohio. Knee pads didn't help much at San Jose's Sanitarium pool circa 1986. Photo: Stecyk
Classic spots keep coming back into our lives. Buena Vista's seen four decades of ripping; last I heard they'd dug it out with rusty spoons. Non-local Al Losi jams a quick backside air, 1988.
Bill Ruff tuck-knees a proper invert above SF at Sam Finger's ramp in Hunter's Point. Check the skyline—when I see photos like this, I think they could've been covers.
This is a shot of Gator before vert died (yes, it did). These guys were rock stars one minute, and then next thing you know… Shit happens. This is an outtake of the famous Gonz Supercush ad shoot on the rooftop pool n Melbourne, OZ, catchin' some rays before the Torquay Ramp Riot in 1987. In jail for life. Sucks. Photo: Kevin Thatcher
Overview of Joe's Ramp Jam. The Barn jumps the onion while all 40 people gaze on in astonishment. Was the suitcase for Miami Vice, or for the $250 in prize money? Ridiculous. Twenty-feet wide, Masonite, and the sun. Slam time.
4/28/2017What’s this all about? Well, the longest-running shows are about real life. Cops and Seinfeld are both just about nothing. The Cauldron is about giving it all the way from the top to the bottom. We used to sell it, now we just cruise and film the randomness of existence. If you see us come over and tell us what’s up. Nothing else matters. —Jake Phelps
4/17/2017Boards, beers and bros once again convened at the Bryggeriet in Malmo for the Vert Attack. Wilkins, Lasek, Kreiner, Beckett and a whole slew of others destroyed the ramp. Cheers again for another great weekend. –P-Stone
3/31/2017We already served up the big enchilada, but you haven't tasted the whole SOTY experience until you dig through the chops of Dustin Dollin.
3/27/2017What’s better than raising the SOTY trophy? Getting to go to Australia with your friends! Lucky for us, Kyle’s homies are pretty damn good skaters, so sit back and enjoy an All-Star lineup of destruction raising hell Down Unda.
3/24/2017The SOTY Down Unda crew sparks a sesh at the infamous Five Docks park. Remember when street skaters could barely grind a bowl?
