It's getting Frosty up in here..

In honor of Koston's Epicly Later'd, figured it would be appropriate to have a post with some of the key players mentioned...

Never knew about the relationship between Eddie Elguera and Eric Koston until these Epicly Later'd episodes came out... dude seems like a really down to earth guy.


..always loved the timelines that H-Street did in their ads.. and that's a switch front blunt, in 1991.

Been looking for a reason to plop this one in here. Alphonzo Rawls, amazing skater who by the way posts some great stuff on Instagram.




Do I really need to say who this is? The one and only Natas Kaupaus.


The man himself..caught myself thinking about the 360 flip noseblunt at the end of his Yeah Right part the other day. Still amazing nine years (!) later.



Really looking forward to future episodes, including how the transition to Girl went down..

What skateboarding will look like in the 2020 Olympics

After reading the recent Sal Barbier Interview on the Chrome Ball Incident, (which is fantastic by the way), and also perusing the recent Thrasher Magazine article on skateboarding in the Olympics, I became curious as to what the proposed format is going to be like. Being that there have historically been many different competitive formats in skateboarding's long history (street, vert, mega ramp, luge, freestyle, etc. etc.), I couldn't help but be curious. After pondering the different possibilities I was able to track down someone from the International Olympic Committee (IOC)  who had some answers.

First how did the International Olympic Committee (IOC) come to the decision to include skateboarding? Was it someone on the committee who proposed it or if it was brought forth by a third party?

The addition of Skateboarding to the Olympic programme in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 resulted from an 18-month process called the OCOG Proposal, where the host city (in this case, Tokyo)…

All Hail..

Repost from.. I don't know, few years ago I guess. Early Cardiel stuff really had an impact on me. Dude just went for it so hard.  Crazy that I live in the same town as him now and have come across him a few times.. My buddy that I go skate with all the time did physical therapy with him after being shot head in the head twice (yes, you read that correctly). Trip out on that..

Tom and Alex

Feeling a bit heavy after that last post... so taking a slight detour.

Great flick of the legendary Tom Penny by the equally talented Arto Saari. And Alex Olson...well, not quite sure what to say about this ollie. It doesn't make sense how someone could be capable of ollieing that high.

 Hopefully I will have the chance to go skate this weekend. My friend from Brazil Dan is in town. Such a character.. apparently he's been working on a fishing boat in Alaska for the last few months. He calls me up put of the blue and first thing he says is "hey, do you have socks and a shoestring I can borrow?" I meet him at the skatepark, he's in borrowed clothes, board, and shoes.. and it's apparent that he hasn't lost a step in what he's able to do on a skateboard. Nice ,(but also intimidating), to be around someone so talented, it pushes you to try harder.
