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

610jp-backside-air
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

610jp-losi
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.

610jp-invert
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.

610jp-gator
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

610jp-joes-ramp
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.

    Bru-Ray: Volcom in New Zealand Part 2
    The good times roll on and on, from the streets to the pool, and every park in between. With a crew this stacked, you know what to expect.

    Bru-Ray: Volcom in New Zealand Part 1
    New Zealand is a dreamland. Part one kicks off in the gnarly concrete pits before Grant seals the deal on a mountainous rail attack.

    Vans Park Series: Floripa Finals
    Some bowl comps generate so much energy that all the skaters get electrified and push each other. This one was insane. Here’s Chris Russell, Greyson Fetcher, Rowan Zorilla, Jack Fardell, Grant Taylor, Ronnie Sandoval, Kevin Kowalski, Pedro Barros, and many others.
  • Tsuyoshi's "69" Book

    Tsuyoshi's "69" Book
    Tsuyoshi's book, 69, is spilt in half: one part is an ethological look into his good friend Jason Jessee's world and the other is filled with Felem's concrete work, skating and allies. Take a peek at some of the images and get to know Tsuyoshi here.
