Open is a tiny board company from NYC. They’re currently donating all proceeds to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. If you need a new skateboard, why not get one supporting our friends across the pond. If a little company like Open can donate, then the big skate, snow & surf players need to step it up and help.
You know Ken Block’s old house in Utah where we filmed the Mountain Lab movies? Well, the darn thing is up for sale. All of the jibs are not included, but the rope tow and the memories are. If you have millions hanging around, maybe send the first 10 to Japan, then spend the rest on this.
There’s a guy in my neighborhood who has one of these remote controlled skateboards. He zips up & down the street on the daily riding his. They look pretty sweet. I think you could have so much fun with this thing, not to mention get really worked, which in turn can be really fun too. Like, take your passed-out drunk friend, put him on the board, then drive him down the street…God that would be funny.
WINNING. Chuck Sheen seems to be doing a lot of that lately. Although, the aging, psychotic, attention-whore is probably disappointed that Libya and Japan’s recent mega-disaster have eclipsed his “news”. The death counter has started. I give him about a year. In that year, we shall receive more pop culture quotes and more shirts to buy.
Wow. Leave it to our Northern neighbors to come out with the party trail map beer can. I guess if you’re using a beer can as a trail map, you need to be sober to read the tiny print. If you get pulled over and there’s an empty six sitting in the back seat, you could always argue with the officer that you were handing out trail maps to your friends. Would crushing a Kokanee can on your head be the equivalent of folding a trail map?
Going to Indo is a surfer’s right of passage. There are so many great surf spots, many of which are off the beaten path. This guide book is your key to finding hidden gems, where there will only be 60 people … not 160.
If you were alive when Thrasher Magazine was newsprint and inked your fingers when you flipped through it in biology class, you’re old enough to fill this 30th anniversary pint glass with beer. If not, you could fill it with milk … although milk would probably be a bad choice.
We all have friends with bad tattoos. Some are so bad, they’re actually awesome. This YouTube vid is dedicated to the awesomely terrible tattoo.
Here’s a little how-to on building a quarter pipe. It shows the way to draw out your trannys and drill them. I recommend having a friend come over to help. It makes it easier to hold the trannys, while you screw them together. I always find that getting a good smooth tranny can be the hardest part.
Cobra has created a way to use your iPhone as a radar detector/diagnostic tool. Red light cameras, speed traps, Dunkin’ Doughnuts, they can all be detected with this app.
