While visiting Shiner Distribution in the UK Eric took some time to look through a few of Shiner's vintage boards. The experience was a step back in time to the 1980s.
In the midst of the museum opening madness we were able to snag a few heavy hitters to ask them some really important questions. Pay attention.
The Santa Cruz team took it over to Oahu for a quick vacation/skate trip with Salba, Guzman, Strubing, Shuriken, Dressen, and Sid Melvin.
A board company like Santa Cruz becomes legendary through the riders who represent it. Here's Strubing, Guzman, Mikey Curtis, SC's newest team rider Shuriken Shannon, ripping ams, and even a Dressen sighting.
Joe Brook went along on the Skatepark Round-Up with the Santa Cruz team and came back with these photos.
