Nike x Hockey's "Killshot" Demo Photos

For years now the guys at Pawnshop have dreamt of doing a parking-lot demo outside the shop. The only problem is that they’re on a busy street and have no parking lot. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, though, and with the help of Nike SB and Hockey, Pawnshop was able to block off College Avenue in downtown Covina and throw one hell of a “parking-lot” demo in celebration of the new Killshot shoe. —Ben Karpinski

    The squad fully snaps, exploiting all that the Brazilian terrain has to offer…. And they even got the Birdman in the van! Simon Bannerot is a different breed. He makes the exceedingly gnarly look effortless. Enjoy...

    Bust or Bail "Trouble at the Double" Video
    Famous for Arto's back lip over a decade ago, the spot has seen only over-the-rail action in recent years after the kinker was knobbed. The school granted us permission to hack off the skate-stoppers for just one day, and the rest is history. Big ups to everyone who BUSTED, especially Alex Midler and his game-changing kicky back lip. Boom!
