Zumiez decided it would be a good idea to have a “celebrity appearance” by Steven Fernandez and Keelan Dadd at the Stonewood Center Mall in Downey, California on Saturday March 28, 2015, but when more than “2,000 screaming girls and adoring fans” showed up the police shut it all down, according to a story on ABC 7.
“The clothing store and event staff were overwhelmed with the large crowd inside the mall, which caused the business to close their doors and cancel the event,” Downey police released in a statement. . . Authorities could be seen in riot gear and stores had their security gates closed as crowds were dispersed. The mall was temporarily closed, but reopened by 4:30 p.m.
Ah, the cult of personality powered by social media.
With no snow in their Pacific Northwest homeland Blair Habenicht, Matt Edgers, Temple Cummins, and their crew took off for the land of the rising sun where the snow was stacking in like twigs in a bird’s nest or something like that.
Let The Bird Fly. A motto embodied by a transient spirit, whose sideways sliding migrations, often rolled into motion on an empty gas tank in a limping VW van, inspired this project. . . We flow as one.
Nothing like a fast new car and a couple good waves to get the blood pumping in the morning. Highsnobiety, Mercedes, and Marlon Lipke get together to make it all work. This edit is another reminder, however, that each time we see a Mercedes it makes us want to test drive a Tesla. . . is that weird?
The Going Off Grid show host Laura Ling gets a tour of Mikey Basich’s Area 241 house on 40 acres near Northern California’s Donner Summit. It’s a great look into living right. To bed with the sun, up with the sun. Man, brother Mikey!
After watching Luan Oliveira over-kill the 2015 Tampa Pro we’re seriously wondering if there will ever be a better display of technical contest skateboarding, ever. Not only did Oliveira hit every single thing he tried in his final runs, he kept going long after his time was up with five or six more makes before a miss. In fact, in his winning run he went 20 tricks deep before a falter. It was mind-blowing.
Sure, Nyjah Huston, who finished in second, gave it a solid go with his practiced precision, but Oliveira’s threw everything he had at it and he didn’t miss. Watch the video and you’ll see. For the complete results, follow the jump. [click to continue…]
There were rumors. There were rumors that it “only took Trevor Colden one session to destroy the Diamond Park and hook up the locals up with some free trucks for the newest Thunder Trucks Parks & Wreck.”
Okay, it wasn’t a rumor. It was a press release. But that’s okay, isn’t it?
See kids, once you get away from an “all-over” sponsor you can start reeling in all the brands you’ve liked, but not been able to ride before. Take John Jackson for example. Now that he’s on Signal Snowboards he can ride whatever bindings, clothing, goggles, shoes, and boots he wants. His most recent choice is Flux Bindings.
“I’m really amped to be joining the Flux team,” says Jackson. “The first time I set up my bindings this year, I was amazed at how good they felt. Super durable, stylish, simple, and lightweight. That’s everything I look for in a binding. I’ve been putting the same pair of bindings through abuse all year and they are just like new. Sad to say, but that’s rare these days. I’m very excited to start this relationship and help Flux continue to create seamless board to foot happiness.”
