Returning back to the island getaway for a lucky 3rd year meant that the Downhill Division had one thing on their mind... win everything! The competition was fierce, the party was legendary, and when the dust settled local bomber AJ Haiby had claimed the crown! Congrats to all of the riders who made the journey and raced their wheels off!

Our favorite Alabama greaser, Dan Sartain, is back with his most eclectic mix of punk and rockabilly with 'Dudesblood'. The new release is a raucous run of distorted guitars and slow burn blues, and you can stream the whole album here courtesy of One Little Indian Records.
Out on Catalina island the Downhill Division leathers could be seen scattered over the race course all weekend. In nearly every heat there was at least one 9-ball going fast for the black and yellow. When it was all said and done, San Diego native AJ Haiby, stood on top of the podium $4000 richer. This is his 2nd win a month, look out for a lot more from AJ as race season continues.
Jensen Callaway has done it all in the world of surfing. He has toured the world, competed against the best, and ridden for the industries top companies. However he now follows a different path from his hometown of Jupiter; a rewarding path that allows him to support his local community.

With the Australian summer coming to a close Chad Gibson and the crew from Animal House Reference have been exploring, filming, and skating as much as they can. Gibbo nails a flowy raw run then cools off with some cliff jumping.
Ricky Whitlock and Karl Strauss Brewing Co. teamed up to create a collaboration libation that will be known as "Helles On Wheels". Starting in mid-May our joint effort will be available for a limited time at the Downtown San Diego Karl Strauss brew pub.

This week’s jam fell out of the sky in the form of Dylan Baldi’s, Cloud Nothings. The first single, “I’m Not Part of Me” is a murky, hook laden combination of noise pop and post punk that makes you hit repeat. Their third album, 'Here and Nowhere Else', floats in on the Carpark label. You can hear the single below on Soundcloud. Soundcloud Nothings?
