Never Summer has been granted the patent on its Rocker & Camber design which features rocker in the middle of the board and camber in the tips.
Thrasher Magazine has announced the '10 King of the Road teams, this time around they're footwear teams and are as follows:
Converse – Kenny Anderson, Angel Ramierez, Sammy Baca, Eli Reed, and Julian Davidson
C1RCA – Sierra Fellers, Peter Ramondetta, Robbie Brockel, David Gravette, and Scott Decenzo
etnies – Sean Malto, Mikey Taylor, Jose Rojo, WIllow, and Ryan Sheckler
Nike SB – Eric Koston, Grant Taylor, Cory Kennedy, Ishod Wair, and Justin Brock
I'm looking forward to the KOTR issue of Thrasher once the whole fiasco is finished to read/see what carnage went down. My money's on C1RCA or Nike SB...

Next up is the brand spanking new Emerica video, Stay Gold (which was 5 years in the making). The entire video, from start to finish is top notch. Heath Kirchart has a career retrospective part which bleeds into his new footage, and is in fact his farewell video segment as he's now retired from the pro ranks of skateboarding (also, his part is an "easter egg," go to the chapter select screen, highlight "back to main" and hit the right arrow button, then enter). Like I said, the entire video is incredible and every skater gave it their all, but my favorites are Hsu, Leo, Reynolds, Herman, Westgate, Kirchart, and Barrier Kult (again, their part is an easter egg, go to the bonus section, highlight andrew's madness section, hit the left arrow, then enter). Head on over to your local shop and pick this up for under $20, and put a smile on your face.
