Tony Hawk’s annual Stand Up For Skateparks fundraiser at Ron Birkle’s Beverly Hills, California mansion is scheduled for Sunday, October 11, 2015. The event will features skateboarding, BMX, and DJ’s and a bunch of Tony’s celebrity friends and their families. Tickets are expensive (it’s a fund raiser for a great cause), but if you want to go, the tickets are on sale right here.
Yes, there is an event called the US Skateboarding Championships. It was held in Washington, D.C. on August 29, 2015 and a guys named Scotty Laird won the whole thing and earned a trip to compete in the Skateboarding World Championships at the Kimberely Diamond Cup in South Africa held October 7-10, 2015. We’ve never heard of Scotty Laird or of anyone else on the list of top finishers from the event, but that’s probably a good thing. For more on just who Scotty Laird is and what the US Skateboarding Championships are, exactly, follow the jump. [click to continue…]

We used to stay in the SF Grand Hyatt all the time back in the day (don’t ask). So when Cardiel slayed it we thought it couldn’t have been done by a better guy. Now, though we’ll miss seeing that rail and reliving the moment, it is nice to see that the rail is in really good hands.
Canadian born graphic artist extraordinaire Geoff McFetridge has always been a mystery to us. His work is always clean, clever, cool, and catchy just like a great pop song, but we’ve never heard the man speak through anything other than his art. That’s why it’s great to see him sit down with the legendary Chris Pastras for an episode of Monster Children’s Table Talk. Watch it and learn.
