So, Rob Dyrdek's Street League has been officially introduced to the world. For all the of the info you need on the League be sure to check out http://www.streetleague.com . In a way I'm worried at what this will bring to skateboarding, but at the same time I'm still excited quite a bit. If skateboarding HAS to be brought to the masses in some shape or form, I'd prefer to have an actual skateboarder (Rob D) at it's helm rather than some corporate folks wearing suits who have don't have a clue. My only requests are team uniforms, coaches, refs and cheerleaders. Oh and Rob, if you're reading this, I'm available for color commentary.

I'm stoked on the news that Plan B is now associated with Paul Schmidt and PS Stix. I also want to say kudos to their art staff in regards to their new line up of products, looking good. If you haven't visted their site and checked things out now is a good time. I'm seriously looking forward to rolling around on one of their planks.

REVIEW: Drake Supersport bindings

During last summer I was fortunate enough to meet an awesome fellow over at Drake/Northwave, which in turn opened up the opportunity to try out a few of their products for this season. I'll be posting my review for the Northwave boots in a few days, today I'm going to tell you my thoughts on Drake's Supersport bindings. When I was first taking a gander at Drake's 09/10 line up these binders instantly caught my eye just from their color way. What's not to love with neon green/purple mismatched binders?...nothin', that's what. The Supersports are the go-to freestyle binding in Drake's line up, but don't be fooled, they'll get the job done in pretty much any situation thrown your way when you're at the mountain. Think flexible enough to butter with the best of them while rigid enough to help you get from edge to edge on hard pack going mach 3. Pretty much all of the adjustments you could
want to make to these binders to get them to your liking requires no extra tools, a plus in my book. Their toe cap is a super soft, flexible multi-cap strap that can be worn on the toe as a cap or over the toe box area aka old school. The ankle strap is super comfortable, I found no uncomfortable pressure what so ever having this thing clamped down tight on my boot. At the end of the day, Drake's Supersport is one hell of an all-mountain freestyle binding, no complaints from me.
