  • Curb Appeal: Ryan Maddox Photo Collection

    Curb Appeal: Ryan Maddox Photo Collection
    Curb skating is a blast but it's rarely the subject of a photo essay. Ryan Maddox documents the art of colliding with curbs and shows that, if you're up close enough, every slappy is a lightning strike.

    Since not all of us can have a private tour of their warehouse, DLX was kind enough to take a selection of goodies down to Black Long Beach for a lil’ art show.
  • Jake Phelps Lifetime Retrospective

    Jake Phelps Lifetime Retrospective
    Jake led one of the most extraordinary lives of all time. There’s no way to fully document his legend but we did our best. Based on the June 2019 memorial mag (and expanded here), this massive feature has 50 years’ worth of Jake photos as well as testimonials from his closest friends. It’s almost impossible to absorb all of this content in one sitting and it’s meant to be sampled in various stages. His story will live forever and his spirit continues in everyone who loves to roll. We love you, Jake!
