We all like RC cars. What makes a Remote Control car even better? Well, one you can squirt water from of course. Just be careful who you squirt. Anyone over 3 feet tall can play King Kong with your new squirty, little hot rod and make you sad.
Once upon a time, there was a skate shoe company named Airwalk. All the super-professional, action sports stars rode for them. Then, the 90s ended and everyone quit except for Andy McDonald….the end. Or, so you thought. I stumbled upon Airwalk’s website while looking for funny animal videos. Low and behold, they still make the Prototype shoe. I remember back in the day killing to find a pair. Every kid wore them in the H Street vid. Wow, what a trip down memory lane. Well, if you want to relive that feeling every day, go and get yourself a pair. Mind you, they’re as big as snowboard boots and probably less comfortable, but hey, they’re a legit piece of skateboard fashion history.
Face it, spring break is almost here and all you own are tired old board shorts from last summer. You don’t want to be last year’s fashion fo paux do you? Of course you don’t. Get some new stylish trunks on your legs and impress the ladies, or the guys ( far be it for me to know what you’re into ).
DC has released The Life Collection featuring casual summer shoes, backpacks, etc. I like this pair. They look really light, comfortable and would probably be at home with a nice pair of slacks.
GoPro has finally released the 3D camera setup I saw at the X Games and featured a few months back. It’s your standard HD affair. Should be pretty cool, especially if you have one of those 3D TVs. If you don’t, I’m thinking your just going to get a headache. Well more of a headache, than you would watching your already shakey-ass footage.
I had several of the Roskopp boards from Santa Cruz over the span of the 80′s. I had this particular board as my vert shred, and I must have had 3 or 4 of the Roskopp Mini’s as my street weapon. Pretty cool that they have been doing the re-releases of these classic boards. I wonder if Santa Cruz is going to re-release Rip Grip? All I know, is that my Roskopp was covered in that shit.
Is it weird if you surf with a hairbrush in your back pocket? These might be the best trunks I’ve ever laid eyes on. Imagine the crotch rash if you actually surfed in jean shorts?
The artist, NeckFace, has been making a name for himself lately. This is the latest in the NeckFace Collection of mash-ups. Altamont’s Night Stalker jacket has all you would come to expect from a piece of clothing. Buttons, pockets and even a collar to pop. All this, with the artistic flair of NeckFace. Ok … what the hell is a neck face? You were thinking it … I’m asking it.
Taylor Knox turns a surfboard really well. It seems, Aerial7 took notice of his abilities and gave him a signature headphone. These days, T Knox can be found on the Professional Surfing World Tour or the CT. I think CT stands for Champion Tour or something? Anyhow … Taylor goes all over the planet surfing amazing waves. When it’s time to focus, he needs these headphones to block out the world and listen to some Kenny G.
Supra’s new Society Mid is the latest in their collection of skate-inspired shoes. Often seen on hipster-types from Brooklyn, Supras can also be used to stand on a skateboard and do actual tricks. By tricks, I mean not just push mongo with a backpack full of DJ equipment.
