    Undoubtedly one of the heaviest road trips to date, but there were still extra revs in the tank. Enjoy...

    Spitfire's "Keep The Fire Burning" Video
    You won’t find a sicker road trip squad than this crew right here. The Spit team leaves nothing but scorched Earth and crushed concrete in its wake.

    The Hellride Crew crushed the coast from SF up to Portland, keeping the fire lit for all those who no longer can. “How do you go to jail while camping?” Gerwer asks. Damn good question! Read the article and find out.

    It's one of the greatest feelings in skating. Hell, it's one of the best thrills in life. Who are some of the all-time classic frontside floaters? It takes one to know one, so we asked Grant to help compile this video and photo feature.

    Plucked from Stratosphere’s upcoming full-length, Brock gives us an advanced screening of what he’s been cooking down South. Dan Plunkett, David Clark and GT roll through before Justin etches his name on some iconic stone. Putting in the work pays off.
  • Canvas Artist Profile: Gabi De la Merced

    Canvas Artist Profile: Gabi De la Merced
    We get killer art submissions from all over the world. Every once in a while a contributor is so talented we trip out and wonder if they sent their portfolio to us by accident. Gabi's paintings belong in museums and the best art galleries, but we're stoked this skate rat wanted to be in the mag.
  • Quasi's "Dallas Man" Video

    Quasi's "Dallas Man" Video
    Parking-garage pumps, hotel hijinks and messed-up manual pads, the Quasi crew gets the skate trip right. Josh Wilson, Justin Henry, Jake Johnson, Bobby De Keyzer and the rest mob the spots with the homie-cam rolling.

    Hear ye! Hear ye! We have a new King of Crust upon the horizon, Sir Mason Silva! Mason pops an unfathomable ollie (over a rail, past the flat) into a blistering bank. That’s how you score the front! More Silva inside as he weighs in on the heroes and heavyweights who have shaped his skating. How did Dashawn Jordan turn into an Olympic athlete seemingly overnight? Find out! Getting caught masturbating? Wack. Over-instagramming? Wack. New Palace pro Jamal Smith schools us on how he finesses the skate industry. Seems to be working. On the travel tip, GT, Collin Provost, Jackson Pilz, Chris Pfanner and the rest of the Volcom crew explore the wonderful world of Deutschland. From the biergartens to the streets, these guys are a force to be reckoned with. Stateside we have the FA guys trekking from Dallas to Oklahoma City, gobbling up dog shit sandwiches and epic spots every step of the way and the Monster crew gets sick in the Colorado Rockies. Need more? Martino Cattaneo gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment, we present you with a skater’s guide to head injuries, Emmanuel Guzman takes some high-speed plunges and Steel Pulse, Wolf Parade and Witch all get grilled. This issue is so chockfull of stoke you’re gonna need two faces for it to melt.
