It just about that time of year to get the homies together and go on a sweet skate trip, eh? Just in case you didn't know, there was an epic tour that happened in 1999 seen by the small town folk of Western Canada that ended up influencing a whole generation of skateboarding and music. So if you need some inspiration to make a big-time trip with small-time funds check out the World premiere of "Hicks on Sticks" by Soren Johnstone in the Newport Beach Film Festival this Sunday April 29th at 7:45 PM. Purchase your ticket here!
Thanks to everyone for coming out to the first game of s.k.a.t.e. at Lazy Tuesdays, and congratulations to Jordan Bacon for the win and $100 prize. Runner up props goes to Zane Baines and Gabe Di Norscio, hopefully we can do it again soon.
The stellar Chicago shop Uprise and Spitfire have teamed up for special edition wheels, 52mm Classics and 53mm SF Wides. Chicago has long been one of the most underrated cities to skate. Just ask Josh Kalis. Full of great spots so close together you could lace a line together for a mile. Big ups to the Ruta brothers!
If you have instagram, which I'm pretty sure you all do..you can follow the epic tour I just hopped on for 11 days. Search the #creatureconquest and follow the whole crew..
