Salba's 50th Birthday
Salba hit the big 50, and they celebrated with a party at the Fontana Skatepark. The Flame Throwers (his band) and the Skatetanic Rednecks provided the live music, and the Taco Dudes hooked up tacos for all. Malba, Omar Hassan, Justin Strubing, Josh Borden, Screech, Josh Mattson, Tristen Rennie, and a bunch of Badlanders came to celebrate and skate with Salba. 50 years old and he's been skating 40 of them. Happy birthday, down for life!

10/27/2014It's been five years since the last Rumble in Ramona went down. The vert ramp got a new facelift and the session was back on.
8/05/2014Robbie grinds blind, Ronnie breaks the flip-grab rule and Pedro saves the best for last in the VDI best trick event.
8/02/2014Ten lucky skaters were pre-qualified for the VDI. For everyone else, it's a battle just to make the big show. If these are the semis, just imagine how raw the finals are gonna get!
7/30/2014Omar Hassan gives you a little background about the course for this weeks Van Doren Invitational in Huntington Beach.
7/13/2014Great weather, beautiful women, amazing Canadian hospitality, insane skating, and one of the gnarliest slams of all-time. This one had it all, with Alex Sorgente taking home the prize. Chalk up another epic contest to Vans.
