I couldn’t find the dudes when I got off the plane. My phone didn’t work either.
Eventually I used one of those Call the USA services from a payphone sticker. It ended up costing $37. Met up with Jet and Leo, the latter of whom was shitface loaded.
The Emerica team is not messing around, what with this video and all, so it was straight to spots.
Minor, Kevin, Marquis, Cedric and Jet.
Accidental culture part 1.
A German skate camp showed up. No shit. We ran into them all week.
The only dude they recognized was Jerry.
Orange snacks, totally appropriate.
Ffej and Claus fucked up when they missed this spot.
This spot is sort of disappointing after seeing Rick’s radical cover.
This one, however, is a shocker.
Bon nuit, Petite Fucky.
12/15/2019Zero skateboards gave the hometown crowd a sneak peek at its eighth full-length video, Damn It All. Old faves, new faces and even a pro surprise. Get your FOMO workin’.
12/15/2019Vans threw a big contest last weekend with a bunch of skaters you don’t usually associate with the words “organized competition.” Tyler Bledsoe, Breana Geering, Taylor Kirby, Austyn Gillette, Simon Bannerot, Mason Silva and hella more throw down the gauntlet for some fun in the OC sun.
12/15/2019Another new Nike video?! Yep, Trust Fall premiered last Friday in Hollywood, chock-a-block with skateboarding’s glitterati.
12/15/2019Tony Alva invented the frontside air, the skater attitude and maybe even the dirt ‘stache. It’s about time he got his own documentary! OC’s glitterati converged for the very special premier of The Tony Alva Story.
12/15/2019Vans rolled out the red carpet to celebrate Elijah Berle’s hotly-anticipated signature shoe – we’re talking skate jams, party busses, baller-ass spreads and the hip-hop stylings of Soulja Boy. Burnout could barely keep up. Congrats, Eli!
12/15/2019How do you beat getting your own shoe? How about a getting a skatepark, a car and a party for all your friends and family? Congrats, Big Lou!
12/15/2019The OC and ATL’s finest converge to celebrate Grant Taylor’s 20 years on Volcom with a skate jam, killer bands, bros, babes, Big Hongry and the premier of Lannie Rhoades’ epic GT documentary. Cheers, Stoners!
12/15/2019The two-day tornado of rock, rap and radical known as the Thrasher Death Match whipped into the Big Apple recently with brain-scrambling maneuvers sharing space with hellacious pits – plus all the ferocity that names like Omar Hassan, The Gza, Kader Sylla, Gorilla Biscuits, Roman Pabich, Roc Marciano and Pedro Delfino conjure up. A Bill Thomas photo show offered a glimpse into NY skateboarding’s golden age and the whole thing was free! Where were you???
12/15/2019After a big night it’s time to either sweat out the poison or try to soak it up. Alltimers attempted both with a donut-fueled skate jam at Fat Kid the morning after the Death Match. Burnout prefers chocolate old fashioneds!
12/15/2019Kreiner and crew grab some sky time, Weiss gets worked and Clay’s epic part premiers. Y’all seen that thing, right?!!
