Big congratulations goes out to the guys over at One Up Skateshop for winning Stereo Skateboard's 2009 Shop Video Contest. It's nice to see a local shop getting some national coverage. Head on over to Stereo Skateboards where you can check out the full video.

ESPN is reporting that legendary snow-shredder Peter Line has broken his back while sessioning a quarterpipe last night. Peter Line's been a huge influence on me and my riding since he first came on the scene in the early 90's and it's with a heavy heart that I have to report such a tragic event. Here's to a speedy recovery Pete, you're in all of our thoughts.

It's been a little while but I haven't forgotten about this site. I've just been super busy with life in general...wife, baby daughter, working, trying to skate when possible, etc...it takes a lot out of you. But I have not one complaint in that department what so ever.

I haven't been hearing too much skate/snow industry news as of late, just a few things here and there. Leo Romero switched up things quite a bit, jumping ship from Baker skateboards to a new home at Toy Machine. I'm hearing a lot about Habitat skateboards starting up a footwear division which is quite interesting. I'd like to see some of the designs, but personally, I'm not a huge fan of skateboard companies making shoes under the same name as their board company. That's about it for news right now. Has everyone been checking out the Mariano Epicly Later'ds? GOOD STUFF!!!
