The day before King of the Road kicked off, Real got an unpleasant phone call from Ishod Wair. Seems that Ishod pinched a nerve in his back and is completely unable to skate for a while. After one phone call, Jake Donnelly is in and it's on!
To help congratulate Jake Donnelly on going pro, Real added three new filters to the InstaREAL free mobile App and are giving away five of Jake's first Pro decks. Details here.
Here's some weird skatepark challenges, Jake Donnelly getting a pro model surprise, and more ripping with Busenitz, Cavedoni, Torgerson, Aultz, and others.
Hammeke went to Minneapolis and met up with some guys from Real and DC for Day of Familia celebrating 8 years of Steve Nesser’s skate shop.
Rhino checks in from the Gonz photo show featuring work from Joe Brook, Gabe Morford, Benjamin Deberdt, and more.
Jake Donnelly skates with a coveted combination of speed, power, and style. He handled this part in less than a month while back home in Buffalo, though you'll notice the face-melting ender happened right here by the Bay. Wow.
Koston, Keegan, Brock, Donnelly, Plunkett, Nugget, P-Rod, Wieger, and BA in a good-times street skating edit without time lapses and excessive art-faggery? Joey Digital delivers the goods.
