Jonah Hill’s mid90s Trailer #2

by The Editors on September 26, 2018

Not gonna lie, this whole mid90s thing is looking pretty sweet. Maybe a movie can save the skateboard industry! Now all we need is for every kid in America to see the movie and then go out and buy a skateboard. . . could happen.


A Mind Expander Split of Jones

by The Editors on September 25, 2018

We’re beginning to dream about winter and when we do we’re not thinking crowded resorts loaded with suburban brats acting rad. We’re thinking quiet forests, open glades, and rolling powder. And the board that gets us to it and through it during these flights is the Jones Mind Expander Split. It goes a little like this:

The new Mind Expander Splitboard was built for the creative rider who weaves nimble and playful lines as they slash through the backcountry. Designed by surf shaper Chris Christenson and Jeremy Jones, the Mind Expander Split features a Christenson Surf Rocker profile and a blunted nose for epic float in pow plus a full size tail for legit freestyle performance. The unique shape is matched with a short sidecut for snappy turn potential in tight trees and inner and outer edge Traction Tech for enhanced edge grip on icy skintracks or firm descents. For unmatched torsionally board connection in ride mode, the Mind Expander Split also features our Boltless Bridge and Karakoram Ultra Clips.

Really, what more do you need?  Click the link for all the details.

. . . and we believe it when Forest Bailey, Blake Paul, Max and Gus Warbington, Alex Lopez, Jacob Krugmire and Max Tokunaga explain it like that.


2John Florence Needs A Little Space

by The Editors on September 13, 2018

2John Florence and Blake Vincent Kueny are back at it again with a little film called Space. Lots of preaching from pastor T.D. Jakes in this one. Surfing starts at the two-minute mark, but it is worth the wait. More evidence that 2John is a solid wave rider.


Nyjah Huston’s Kapernick Nike Ad

by The Editors on September 6, 2018

Yes, Nike goes straight to the emotions with their new Dream Crazy commercial narrated by Colin Kapernick, but they kick off the ad with Nyjah Huston. It’s now cliche when the Swoosh jumps in and opportunistically commodifies politics (they’re just shoes), but it will offer up more eyes on skateboarding than anything this side of the Tokyo Olympics.

World Largest Skateboard Makes Print

by The Editors on September 3, 2018

California Skateparks’ Joe Ciaglia and crew have finally made it into the pages of the 2019 Guinness Book of World Records with the world’s largest skateboard (35 feet, 7 inches long).

Joe Ciaglia, director of California Skateparks, originally created the big board for MTV series Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory and is a 12.5 scale replica of Dyrdek’s own board.. . “The hardest part was not having any directions or blueprints,” he told Guinness World Records. “We just started and figured it out as we progressed. The process took us about 10 weeks, a lot of things were trial and error.”

Congrats, Joe. See, print still does matter.
