The Downhill Division is touring Europe for the next few weeks and stacking clips at every possible apex. Last week at the Almabtrieb Downhill race in Germany they convinced a luger friend to eat their dust and get the shot.
Our friends Diarrhea Planet are a great band with a horrible name. The Nashville punks pulled an awesome sneak attack on the Casbah Saturday night and came on just as Nobunny had finished tearing the place apart. The boys nailed two shows in one night and were looking at a very late and long drive out of town. Instead they took a detour straight to Mission Beach to dip their toes in the ocean and crash on Rock Team Captain Rob Molt’s floor. See them on tour and invite them to crash at your place.
Gabe Gwynne is quite the globetrotter, finding his way all around the world in search of winding roads and buttery asphalt. This time he ended up in the Japanese hill country navigating narrow switchbacks with Matt K. on the follow cam.
The Clairemont YMCA Skatepark hosted the California State Games last weekend and our favorite 11 year old, Nate Vernia, swept the podiums for Vert and Pool in the Sponsored All-Ages division. Big congrats to the little dude!
In the skate world Albuquerque, NM is known for it’s endless ditches and expanse of skateable concrete. However it’s more commonly known as the Land of Enchantment, and that’s exactly what it did to the Deep End team. Get lost in the lo-def Super 8 preview. Full-length hi-def recap coming soon!
Go Skateboard Day is one of our favorite days of the year and it makes it even better when we meet someone like this dude! The leg art is from an old pintail board called the Seedling and we couldn't be more stoked on the tattoo.
After 3 long years of waiting, and a little help from riders and industry alike, Almabtrieb is back and ready to run. Louis Pilloni, Micah Green, and Brendan Davidson have landed in Germany and are stuffed in a Euro van with friends and teammates James Kelly, Alex Persson, and Max Ballesteros. Don't miss the crew rolling across Europe and coming to you live from InstaBlogFace for the next 4 weeks.
