Zumiez Supra Stash At Woodward West

by The Editors on December 7, 2015

Zumiez dropped this Supra “branded experience” on 50 lucky mall shoppers. Forty-eight hours at Woodward West with these cats wouldn’t be such a bad deal, huh? That’s just one of the ways that Zumiez gives back, and we’d take it for sure.



Oakley Latches On To Skateboarders

by The Editors on December 1, 2015


It’s been decades since Oakley has designed a pair of sunglasses that a skateboarder would wear. Their Frogskins were about it and they were released in 1985. Now, thanks to some input from skateboarders Eric Koston, Sean Malto, Curran Caples and skate photog Atiba Jefferson Oakley has a pretty smooth set of shades that not only look good, but come with some needed function for anyone who has ever clipped their glasses over the neck of their T-shirt. They’re called the Oakley Latch.

“It was just amazing to team up with three skate legends and see this frame come to life,” said Jefferson. “We collaborated with the Oakley design team on all elements – from frame shape to logo placement – to develop a truly signature product that I know we’re all really proud of.”

Oakley_LATCH_how-toThe “latch” is located behind the hinge on each side of the glasses and allows the glasses to be locked on to the neck of a T-shirt. We had a little trouble latching the shades to the shirt (it often took two hands), but once the latch is attached our days of spilling our sunglasses onto the street were over.

The Latch retails starting at $130 and can be purchased online at Oakley. For the official word from Oakley, follow the jump.

Tony Hawk Rides A Horizontal Loop

by The Editors on November 19, 2015

There’s no doubt that the structure Tony Hawk built on his ramp is a mind (and body) twister. But is it a horizontal loop, or just a bowl with a ridable drain? You be the judge.


Sierra-At-Tahoe Opening On Friday

by The Editors on November 18, 2015

Sierra-at-Tahoe, one of our favorite NorCal resorts, is opening on Friday, November 20, 2015.

“The last time we opened this early was 11 years ago,” says General Manager, John Rice. “A November opening is giving us a great outlook for the rest of the season. In a similar year, we logged as much as 499 inches of snowfall. It should still be noted that early season conditions exist and we will open more terrain once conditions permit.”

John John & Blake & A Blue Moon

by The Editors on November 12, 2015

Last night (Wednesday November 11, 2015) 2 John Florence and Blake Kueny premiered their new surf film collaboration View From A Blue Moon to a massive hometown crowd at Sunset Elementary on the North Shore. Kind of wish we’d been there on the lawn with all the menehune, but we weren’t.

Sports Illustrated (yeah, the bikini porn mag), however, has a little behind the scenes piece that tells a pleasant story of the background of Kueny and Florence’s partnership and Kueny’s start in action filming. If you’re interested, it’s worth a read.
