Jim Jannard’s Beverly Hills Bombshelter

by The Editors on October 4, 2017

Billionaire Oakley and Red Camera founder Jim Jannard has always had a fetishist’s attention to architectural detail (and design in general) and that’s why it is so entertaining to check out his concrete and metal Beverly Hills, California home featured in Wallpaper Magazine.

Though it took five years to complete the house, the outline of the project was sketched out in just a few bold strokes: it would have a high-tech feel, bringing in some of Jannard’s product designers for the all-metal fixtures; it would take advantage of its singular locale, with multiple vantage points looking out to the sprawling urban vista; and, of course, it would be monumental, recalling a certain prehistoric rock formation in southern England.

Looks like the perfect place to wait out the days of tribulation.

Shaun White Settles Sexual Harassment Suit

by The Editors on May 17, 2017

Shaun White and former Bad Things drummer Lena Zawaideh have finally settled their differences without going to court according to a story in USA Today.

Zawaideh first sued White and his company in May 2016, alleging breach of contract for lack of payment of her $3,750 monthly retainer from September 2013 until August 2014. The original lawsuit didn’t contain any sexual harassment allegations. . . She then switched attorneys and filed an amended complaint in August that added the sexual harassment claims in detail with screen shots of alleged text messages from White attached as exhibits. It sought punitive and compensatory damages, including lost wages.

When the suit was filed last August, Shaun said he would defend against the charges  “vigorously in court,” apparently, he changed his mind. No details were released on exactly what the settlement was, but we’re guessing Zawaideh got money in exchange for dropping her case. Isn’t that how it usually works?

by The Editors on May 15, 2017

Kelly Slater reportedly just snapped up another house on the North Shore. This $7.8 million gem is located in Haliewa, according to a story in the Pacific Business News.

The 7-bedroom, 5-bathroom estate is located at 61-785 Papailoa Road, and includes one building and pool situated on 23,889-square feet of land. The ocean-front land was last purchased in 2000 for $1.85 million, and the property was built in 2001.

It’s not in Lemoore, California, but it looks like a very nice place to stay every now and again. Click here for all the photos.

Shaun White Selling His NYC Condo

by The Editors on April 27, 2017

Shaun White is on a bi-coastal home dumping spree. He’s selling his beach pad in Encinitas, California, his mod home in the Hollywood Hills, and now, according to a story in the New York Post, he’s selling his “NYC Penthouse,” though we’re not sure it’s a proper penthouse, as it’s offered up for only $2.79 million (the cheapest of his homes by far).

The two-bedroom, 2½-bathroom unit is 1,174 square feet. It comes with floor-to-ceiling windows, 12-foot ceilings and stunning skyline views. . . The eight-story building, built in 2006, features a rooftop deck with a 50-foot lap pool, wet bar and BBQ, along with a gym and a 24-hour doorman.

All told Shaun has $17.69 million of homes currently on the market. Not a bad action sports exit. Wonder what he needs the money for?

Shaun White Is Selling Another House

by The Editors on April 10, 2017

Shaun White is selling another one of his houses. This time, it’s the one overlooking the beach at 1300 Neptune, in Encinitas, California  (the one he was renting out for $12,500 a month). The 3,500 square foot house features four bedrooms, five baths and floor-to-ceiling views of the Pacific Ocean.

How much does Mr. Blanco want for this beachside bachelor pad? Well, he bought it in 2012 for $3.85 million and now he’s asking $7.95 million. Not a bad way to make and extra million a year, huh? While we scrape some change together, go check out the full listing by clicking this link.

Let The Tony Hawk Foundation Help

Now is the time to turn in your application for a skatepark building grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation. The Foundation only accepts applications from communities twice a year. The current application period is live on the foundation’s Web site and will be open until January 16, 2017.

THF funding won’t pay for the whole park, but as many cities have found out, getting a Tony Hawk Foundation grant really helps jumpstart fundraising.

“The value of winning the Tony Hawk Foundation Grant cannot be measured by sheer numbers,” said Sarah Anderson, who led the Nyack, New York public skatepark to its grand opening in 2015. “The esteemed THF grant not only filled the skatepark coffer, it legitimized the project in the eyes of the public and activated donors, both public and private, to carry us forward to the finish line.”

For the official word from the Tony Hawk Foundation, please follow the jump or click here.

Gonz, Snoop At Randy’s Donuts For Adidas

by The Editors on December 6, 2016

Adidas Skateboarding celebrated the launch of their Snoop Dogg and Mark ‘Gonz’ Gonzales’ limited edition LA Stories footwear and apparel collection at Randy’s Donuts on Monday, December 5, 2016, with a “lowrider show paying homage to Snoop and Gonz’s deep Los Angeles connection and history.”

adidas Skateboarding hosted an old school West Coast day party that included a special DJ performance by Snoop Dogg, the ‘LA Stories’ collection on display, and a lowrider show that also featured Snoop’s custom lowrider that was painted by Gonz, whose art is featured throughout the ‘LA Stories’ capsule collection. adidas Pro team riders Daewon Song, Na-Kel Smith, Tyshawn Jones, and Jack Fardell alongside influential tastemakers, industry executives, prominent media, and ecstatic fans, also enjoyed specially prepared Snoop x Gonz donuts fresh from the oven compliments of Randy’s Donuts.

Doesn’t seem possible to manufacture a better event, right? Atiba Jefferson and Skin Phillips were even there. We just wonder how Snoop really feels about his new Gonz paint job?

Burton + Dead Boxer = Greatest Snowboard

by The Editors on December 2, 2016

Someone at Burton loves dead people. We’ve said before that it was because they were much easier to do deals with. But we’re not sure that’s the only reason. Over the past few decades the company has done collaborations with Andy Warhol (who is dead), Bob Marley (who is dead), and now they’re getting in the ring with Muhamad Ali (who is also dead) with the Ali x Burton The Greatest Snowboard.

When pioneers see eye-to-eye, it’s only fitting to step into the ring and celebrate with a knockout. Thus the Ali x Burton collaboration brings two legacies together with a limited release board in honor of the People’s Champion, the Greatest, Muhammad Ali.

Wonder if this boards floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee? Truthfully, we’ll never know. But we do begin to wonder how much longer it will be before they do a Hugh Hefner model.
