Jacko's Coast Gold

Jackson Shapiera does not come from the Gold Coast although he is Australian, and he did not coast to a gold. He did however plummet down the Vernon DH course with such raw finesse that he claimed victory and earned one of the few coveted Coast Longboarding Gold Medals.

New Music Tuesday #71 - Young Old Man

This last Saturday we walked off the beach and into a dimly lit rock bar. As with many times before, we saw friends, musicians, and regulars. But we hadn’t met LA’s Runson Willis and his outfit, Young Old Man, yet. We have now. The dudes simply took over the room.

Product Guide: Carbon Flight

Ground control to Sector 9, the Carbon Flight has landed. 5-plies of maple sandwiched between carbon fiber and fiberglass has never looked so good. This board comes complete with everything you need to glide across any paved surface... and some unpaved. Watch as the Downhill Division puts it through its paces.

New Music Tuesday #70: OBN III's - "No Time For The Blues"

Just in time for summer, Austin’s sweaty mess, OBN III’s drops their latest record today, 'Third Time To Harm'. The punk/garage outfit combines southern swing with an 80’s punk guitar charge that cooks up a super-fun swagger. The first single, “No Time For The Blues”, is soaked in Orville Bateman Neeley III's crazy front man charisma. Stream it and steam it here courtesy of TTT Records.
