Pizza's "Southwest Side Story" Photos
Being on the road with the Pizza crew is quite the experience. You have a bar back, an Uber driver, a business major—accompanied by several already accomplished scholars—an en route correctional officer and a couple full-time skateboarders. Luckily, everyone has the same agenda: get the hell out of Dodge and ride skateboards. Five states in 12 days was a task that required everyone to keep it eight more than 92 in a tightly-packed van spending every waking moment together. Luckily, the Pizza dudes are a tight niche. —Kyle Duval
Ryan Martin gets the legs going with a switch 180 to start off the trip
We got to this school as the sun was going down. Ducky Kovacs wasted no time putting together a few clips on this waist-high bar. Back 5-0
The giant location pin we stole from a car dealership naturally turned into the new soccer ball for morning hype
I’m not sure if Ducky is going through a Billy Idol phase or what. Anyways, here he snakes through a boardslide
Bryan Whalen, aka RB, aka Big Red, aka my occasional Uber driver is a wizard on the board. Wait until you see some of the lines he put together. Nollie noseslide
We spotted this bar to bank from the highway and Jesse Vieira’s wheels started spinning. Noseslide yank over
These guys might read the Bible. Footy check in AZ
Next up was TX. Ducky, feeble tail grab in the brisk town of El Paso
Dirty Joe and Diego from El Paso took us around for a few days and showed us this virgin hubba. A little TLC and some truck rubs later and Andrew Dellas rolled away from this 5-0
We made a bet and told Ducky we'd buy him a lap dance if he landed this Smith grind. Needless to say, everything is bigger in Texas. Right, Ducky?
RB, switch ollie
No matter how many times I see this, it still blows my mind. Michael Pulizzi, kickflip hippy jump
Quick stop at the ol’ Grand Canyon
Jesse, feeble transfer
In skateboarding, sometimes getting lost can be a blessing. After a few boardslide attempts, Ducky switched it up and back 50-50d this beast first go
Ducky, ollie over to frontside Smith
The cops gave us five minutes to skate this spot and Ducky fired off three tricks in our allotted time. This ollie over to back Smith was a rad one to witness
6/26/2020The man, the myth, the ramp is back on the job site, keeping his crew moving through impossible rails and wild hill rides. Mason and Fabi join Cookie and the Mulls to hit new heights of hype.
5/29/2020Raiding the NHS warehouse, Ducky grinds through a makeshift kinker and dips out with enough gear to spark a giveaway for the Modesto kids. Props to a man of the people.
5/28/2020All bark and all bite, the DPFC blasts outta your TV set featuring bosses like Mikey P, Miles Silvas and the OG Matt Pailes. This is everything you love and need from a shop video and then some. BIG LOVE to the homies in Macramento.
5/27/2020Chase blasts through concrete and steel, surviving some of the riskiest rails and ramps ever skated. This Pizza is fully cooked.
5/21/2020Talk about supportive parenting, Ducky’s mom even edits his video parts, laying down a Britney Spears track for good measure. This is LOVE.
