I’m so bummed to hear that 1031 Skateboards is no longer. Kristian Svitak is one of our favorite all time rippers though and he will continue to push Land Shark along with his many other endeavors. For now Mike Vallely has brought the fellow Black Label Vet onto his board company Street Plant. If you ask me he couldn’t have made a better decision. For now you can buy out the last of the 1031 goods here (I recommend the Dead Milkmen All Terrain). Also go read Mike’s welcome letter for Kristian at Street Plant and support that crew as well.

Sid Enck Jr. (AKA Little Lost Indian) is a ripper. He currently skates and makes art in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sid’s artwork is inspired by his Native American Heritage and he prides himself on authenticity and originality. Go support this kid and watch him skate. He will probably inspire you to make stuff and push around.
Check out more of Sid at Society Skateshop and Solitaire Skateboards.
There are numerous people out there have the same feeling about skateboarding as Casey Helseth. Not many have been through shit he has, but we all definitely owe skateboarding a ton. Thank you skateboarding….Roll Forever.
Coalatree….skating slickrock…..Moab Utah……all good.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. We love Polerstuff. This company is run by good people with a keen eye for design. Poler has filled a niche, and they’ve done it with class. Benji Wagner breaks down where they’ve been and where they’re going. I’m still waiting to see how the surf team will progress…..get on that shit boys. Go support these guys and get some stuff.

Remember when stuff was made in America? New Balance used to be….Remember when skating was small and no one cared about it except for a select few turds like me…? Politics of corporate exploitation aside….this video fucking rips.
You gotta love Grosso….even though he’s a prick. Roast Beef? I’ve been saying it for years….exactly.
You guys should go buy a copy of Ben Harper and the reunited Innocent Criminals’ new version of “Jah Work” on Itunes. Proceeds go to support the family of late great ripper Lewis Marnell.
