I’m typically very partial to goofy footers. Almost to a point of discriminatory measure. That being said, there’s a ton of guys out there that rip with their left foot forward. On the other side of that coin…I always drop my back knee….so I’m super biased TOWARD this technique. Yeah it sounds a bit conflicted, but who cares. Trevor Gordon is one of my favorites for obvious reasons. I think in surfing more than any other sideways standing pursuit, style is poached and even faked. Fake style is the worst style. Trevor doesn’t do that….Trevor has sick style. Go buy some of his art work (as soon as his site is back up and running) and watch the kid rip.
Stereo Skateboards speaks to me….for a number of reasons. I have always been surrounded by creative people in my life, and as a result I have a heavy appreciation for Art and Design. I thank my mother for that mostly. Chris Pastras always just seemed like one of the kids I would have surrounded myself with. Chris has an incredibly creative mind, and he expresses that in his skating as well as his artwork. Stereo’s marketing, design focus, and overall attitude balance art and commerce far better than any other product involved in skateboarding. Recently Chris and Jason have had local Utah artist Colt Bowden design their Retro Americana Classics Division. Colt is an excellent skater as well as an accomplished and detailed artist. I’m very stoked for Colt, and I’m so glad to see these two collaborating. It just makes sense. Take a look at Chris’ Hand in Hand, check out Colt’s site, buy some of his work, and then go support Stereo Sound Agency.

I know for many of you this is kind of old news, but I had to put up a Haroshi post. The guy is an absolute inspiration, and he is the embodiment of DIY. …oh and I must have the new Haroshi-Huf Pro-models…clear cup soles?…so rad. Now stop reading this, and check out his Aberrican Me.

Just watch this and trip out….
I just had to post about how pumped I am on the new Draplin shit that showed up this week…that is all.
I don’t have part numbers or descriptions on the stickers, but it feels like Aaron’s old man is looking over us now…SHITCHYAH.
Yes I’m a dork…
Man I wish he would come here to speak….
