The New York Ramp Company Story

by The Editors on May 24, 2016

Jenkem follows New Jersey skateboarder Kevin (insta @NYRampCo) on one of his missions into NYC with his portable, pop-up skatepark.

On his off days, Kevin loads up his van and makes the hour trek from Jersey into the city with homemade boxes, rails and kickers, where he creates pop up skateparks. His obstacles are open for anyone to skate and organized purely for the love, which is why it feels like Christmas when he happens to stop by your area.

How’s that for bringing smiles?

Slater Name Involved With Sale Of Something

Kelly Slater, the 11-time world champion surfer who has lent his name to a growing number of commercial ventures including a surfboard company, a high-end casual clothing line, a recently independent accessories brand, and a wave pool development company, has commented on the “sale” of the magical wave making company (Kelly Slater Wave Company) to a surfing event production and content creation company that is co-owned by his agent Terry Hardy along with Dirk and Natasha Ziff, who are also reportedly partners in the wave company.

“While surfing for me will always be about adventure, travel and the ocean, this wave brings a new opportunity to the sport without taking away the soulfulness that attracted many of us to surfing in first place,” said Slater. “Surfing great waves in a controlled environment adds a new dimension, as there is no hassling for waves, no stress over who got the best wave – they are all good. Everyone can relax, have fun and focus on improving their surfing.”

Whether anything has actually changed hands is totally up for discussion, however, either way it makes a great press release for the surf event production company. And that’s often the only upside to deals of this sort.

For the official word from the purchaser, please follow the jump.

Tampa Police Picking On 15 Year Old

by The Editors on May 23, 2016

You have to wonder how the Tampa Police Department can protect its citizens when their officers can’t even throw a waif of a 15-year-old kid on the ground without tripping themselves and falling in the gutter. Seriously. Is that cop impaired?

The teen is 15 years old, stands about 5’4″ and weighs maybe 120 pounds, said Patrick van Kampen, 18, who was part of about a dozen skateboarders skating on a public street that was closed off to traffic in downtown Tampa on Saturday. He also said there were no signs forbidding skateboarding.

It seems like cops are always roughest on the people who can’t fight back. Cop #1 is likely blaming the kid (who was reportedly held for 12 hours) for his sore back. For more on the story, click the link.
