The stars shown bright over SFC last night as we crowned another great. Ishod Wair is the 2013 Skater of the Year.
Hard to believe, Tony Trujillo SOTY 2002. Here he is talking about the past 10 years and many more to come.
One of the best skate-trip vids of all time, Tent City captured an epic journey through Oz with Cardiel, Trujillo, Hewitt, and others. This new version has tons of extras (as seen in this clip), available on iTunes now.
What a day: Bands, makes, slams, and a gnarly extension were all on hand to celebrate 18 years of skate anarchy. Here's Trujillo, Stranger, Cardiel, and many others at SF's Potrero del Sol.
From Vincent Alvarez to Christian Hosoi, here's some more gems from the Van Doren Invitational. Thanks again Vans-that was one kick-ass contest!
From Greyson's psycho float to Raven's Rube-a-Dube to Hatchell's trick wizardry, this was one of the wildest finals we've ever seen. And Raney's transfer? Just wait!
Thanks to Jim Beam, garlic, road miles, gas cards, Waters and crew, Monster, Contour, Sypniewski, and all the bands. Jaws, Raybourn, Gravette, and four SOTYs—one epic adventure. Hopefully another one is right around the corner...
Stopped in Oxford for a slice of suck, got into a jam and had to bail on Jackson. Made it to the Big Easy and lurked at an indoor bowl. 6am flight on Sunday, fuck this is what we do. —Jake Phelps
24 hours of Memphis. We bootlegged a show at the Gaslight and blew Altown out with an onslaught from Figgy, Gerwer, David Gonzalez, Gravette, Patlanta, and Raney. Some epic shit here kids!
It was only logical to begin the burning in Detroit Crack Rock City. Grant Taylor, Ben Raybourn, and a 40 man onslaught - Skate Rock begins now!
All of the madness; blood, guts, skateboarding, and tunes in one week. Starting the 15th—new towns, new slams, new freaks. Get ready, it's gonna be a long one—it's on! —Jake Phelps
