Newsies...

Ron Dyrdek has officially acquired DNA distribution from Burton. Hip hop hooray!

Jaws is off I Path and on Dekline. I love Dekline.

Me, myself, and I. I'm going to, eventually, do a very small run of decks....hand silkscreened by myself....on quality hand crafted USA made decks. I have no clue what'll be on the decks or what monicker they'll be under. But rest assured. They're coming.

Now go check out Magenta's crew skating the streets of France's capital, filmed at the end of '11 and beginning of '12. http://vimeo.com/40282787

Some news...

I want to not like Elephant Brand skateboards so badly but it's hard to do that when the likes of Jason Adams and Neal Hendrix have joined the team. I'm so wishy-washy when it comes to anything Mike Vallely related. I hate his constant sponsor hopping and "outside of skateboarding" antics. But once again I find myself fully backing him and his new company. Do you hear me Mike V? DO NOT DISAPPOINT ME THIS TIME AROUND!!!

Pete Eldridge has joined the pro roster over at Cliché skateboards, seems like a good fit to me. Why not?

Roger Skateboards is releasing a video this summer. Check out their site for updates. It's going to be a sick sick sick video.

Review: Santa Cruz Rob Roskopp Face 2 reissue

I was ecstatic when I heard the news that SC was again reissuing the Roskopp Face 2. When they did it the first time the shape and colors were off from the OG so I refrained from getting one. You see, this here board, way back in '88 was my second ever "good" skateboard. So it holds a lot of sentimental value and I've wanted one hanging on my wall for some time now. I wasn't about to drop $800+ on an OG so I was keeping my fingers crossed on a reissue. And reissued it was. It looks spot on. The colors are great, the shape is a lot more reminiscent of the original, and the top graphic is just the plain old SC logo from back in the day. It's true to form, a reissue of the deck I skated when I was in the fifth grade. I'm anxious to see what Santa Cruz has on their plates next in the reissues category. Don't disappoint me!!! :)
