Once in a while we hear about amazing causes around the world, and Beyond The Surface International is one of the raddest. This group of board riding advocates travel to lesser fortunate parts of the world and use surfing and skateboarding as a medium to motivate and educate young minds. The video below was filmed and directed by 3 brothers from Lobitos, Peru, and they even made the music. The next project for them and BTSI is to build a skatepark in Lobitos.

Jimmy Riha Out In The Hills

Skatehouse Media caught a quick session with Jimmy Riha out in the hills. Jimmy just gets better and smoother every time we see him skate... butteriness included.

Washington, DC based group Congo Sanchez, has drawn their line in the sand with today's release of their first full length album titled 'Dealin' With This'. This album is anything but your average radio loop, as it takes you through turmoil, protest, love, and life on the road. Spanning from funky dance breaks to dark hip-hop beats, and back to lounge based sambas, this album takes you on a ride. 'Dealin' With This' is available today on Herb Records, buy it here.: http://herbrecords.bandcamp.com/

Product Guide: Marshmallows

No graham crackers and chocolate needed here. Just skewer the 61mm Marshmallows on to your favorite set of trucks and unleash their sugary goodness on the concrete world. The 78a durometer and pure white urethane give these wheels a smooth roll and slide as you melt them on the asphalt. Watch 12 year old ripper, Cole Trotta, toast his set out in the San Diego hill country.

Tabor for a demo day of the new Sector 9 lineup. Team riders A.J. Haiby, Chance Gaul, Jake Wilkinson, Georgia Bontorin, Harrison DePass, Louis Pilloni, and Tibs Parise grabbed a variety of setups and rallied the closed road with the locals.

Does Minneapolis minimalistic surf punk sound good? If you’re The Blind Shake it sure does. This fearsome 3-piece just released their latest raucous record, 'Breakfast of Failures' on Goner and it’s a burner. Listen to the song ‘Parachutes’ here...
