Brendan Herling, Over the Fence and Across the Gap

20110403_BrendanHerling_Crook_SouthGate

Steven Farmer: A Barley Grind and An Interview

My good buddy and motorcycle-riding vagrant, Steven Farmer has an interview up on his hometown shop’s blog. Steven is a trooper and always fun to skate with. Hopefully he gets a place to live soon so he can focus more on shredding and not on how to get a roof over his head each night. [...]

Aaron “AJax” Johnson, Front Blunt

Skateboarder’s Sunset Rampage

Back in Illinois I had a mini-ramp in my folks’ backyard that was host to some pretty epicly good times. Something about mini-ramps just brings out all kinds; street skaters, tranny skaters, lurkers; all just there for a mellow good time. So when Skateboarder Magazine decided to put a mini-ramp on a Hollywood hotel’s pool [...]
