Tony Hawk on Jablinski Games

by The Editors on May 13, 2020

Yes, a little more T. Hawk, but just because there is so much goodness in here. Not to mention pre-COVID-19 closeness.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Trailer

by The Editors on May 12, 2020

Ok, we’re going to admit it. This looks amazing. (And that soundtrack?) We always loved THPS gameplay, and with a complete rebuild, this thing is going to RULE!

The two titles will be sold as one “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2” package, and will feature every level and pro skater found in the originals — now in glorious 4K, with all of the 3D models and levels recreated from scratch. Also returning is most of the original soundtrack; licensing changes over the years prevent the remake’s soundtrack from being exhaustive, but most of the jams you remember should still be there.

We might even have to pick up a PS4 or borrow one from a kid we know (no mention of Switch support currently). The only bad news? Not out until September 4, 2020!

11-year-old Spinderfella Lands 1080

by The Editors on May 9, 2020

We never really thought the skateboarding 900 was that big a deal. Yes, we were at the X-Games that year, but left after watching Tony Hawk fail for what seemed like hours. True, he eventually landed one (long after the “event” had “officially” ended) and the world was amazed, but that extra 180 just didn’t seem historic to us.  

Now, Gui Khury, an 11-year-old skater from Brazil, has kicked up the spin to 1080, with a strikingly similar hand drag. Nice work, Gui. But can this be the last of the spin-to-win era? Please? Maybe just leave the 1260s and 1440s to Olympic snowboarders.


The Sticky Bumps Wax Factory Tour

by The Editors on May 3, 2020

Chas Smith and go behind the scenes with our favorite surf wax company, Sticky Bumps. Turns out it’s all handmade right here in the USA. And we mean, handmade. Thanks to some recently slackened COVID-19 restrictions we may put some of the Dahl’s wax to use this week, you know, if Uncle Gavey lets us.

Jeremy Jones Talks Powder Boards

by The Editors on April 29, 2020

This little Board Hoarders video is great for a couple reasons. 1. When it comes to getting advice re: powder riding, there’s really no one better to listen to than Jeremy Jones. 2. Having missed out on all that spring powder that came floating down in mid-to-late March we all could use a couple vicarious blasts of the good stuff. Those are the reasons, now just watch it. . . and remember to always keep an open mind!


A Skatepark Sand Packing Revolution Is Born

by The Editors on April 17, 2020

Oh, the sand spreading continues. This time in Venice, California where the sand is much closer. And, hey, no one is using it on the beach anyway. You’d think city governments would see the difference between keeping citizens safe and working to drive them crazy. Guess not.

Stay Home, Kooks!

by The Editors on March 18, 2020

A little reminder to everyone who believes that total Coronavirus lockdown is the perfect time to travel to hike your favorite resort, skate a distant park, or surf a break that’s not in your front yard. Don’t do it. Stay home.

Mammoth Lakes Tourism speaks for almost every place on the planet right now with the following message:

We’re asking anyone who is not a primary resident of Mammoth Lakes or providing essential services to our residents NOT to visit Mammoth Lakes for the time being. The reason is simple: as a small, remote mountain community our healthcare facilities lack the capacity to handle a widespread outbreak of COVID-19. Additionally, services in Mammoth Lakes are currently extremely limited. Mammoth Mountain and restaurants (excluding takeout services), bars and other public spaces are temporarily closed due to county-mandated health orders. Public gatherings have also been prohibited by the Mono County Public Health Officer.

In other words, stay home kooks! And, if you do live where it’s epic, and you’re able to get out ALONE then please, by all means, share your content with the rest of us who are hunkered down, indoors, for the foreseeable future, doing whatever it is we’re do. We’re all in this together.
