MUSIC MONDAY: MAKESHIFT

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Today I got a special treat for all you slayers. This Rapper/Beatsmith comes to you from none other than CHULA VISTA, SD. So it seem like everyone skates now, Rappers Rap about it, Actors Act like they skate. Makeshift ( Josh Vasquez) is about that SKATELIFE! I met him about 6 years ago skating the streets of SD, it’s safe to say we hit it off famously, he was a part of the whole Street Machine Movement that was happening in SD. You know he had to have been a Ripper with go to’s like back 180 nose grinds and backside over crooks; this half mexicano/black male has the official skate stamp. If  you ever run into Makeshift make sure you make him show you what he’s got, I hope you enjoy his music, he’s a very talented artist! You’ll be seeing him in full effect real soon, this album is ON PURPOSE everything ON PURPOSE !

IT COULD BE YOU

Okay, so when I was a kid trying to come up,  it wasn’t easy. Hard work is definitely key but sometimes you could use a helping hand. That being said,  I came up with a way to help you rippers get your footy out there. Send me your tapes through my Facebook or Direct Message me on Twitter; I will watch and hand-pick a winner to be interviewed. Your tape will be posted Wednesday morning! Good luck and may the best man or woman win!

ROLL FOREVER MATT

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

 It’s been exactly 1 year today since Matt Brode passed away. A life cut way too short, I grew up seeing and hearing “yo that’s Matt Brode” and the exciting new tricks he had concocted. He was seriously an innovator and inspiration in skateboarding. Rest in Peace Matt, LEGENDS NEVER DIE!

LA’S LOVE PARK

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Its a typical sunday for LIL Shmatty and Yuto Jkwon Sunday!

Its a cool site to see legends and up incomers stand shoulder to shoulder, everyone is equal at LA'S LOVE PARK, an unspoken sense of respect for all skaters. The Yorkatron waits for his shot, Lui Elliot (IN THE BLUE) can't wait to get another proper back nose blunt! GETTEM LUI!

There is something for everyone here at "LA'S LOVE PARK" . After getting your line or single ledge trick, you can go for banger on the rail, Kurtis Colomonico getting buck! Manny getting second angles from the tree top, and Jonny building up his hype to get in on the sesh!

Josh Kalis and Sammy Baptista rappin about life, and what Rodrigo Tx just busted on the ledge, no spoilers your gonna have to wait for the DGk vid drop for that one guys! Lui Elliot going for it in the background told you he had proper Back Nose Blunts..

As if filming a countless lines and a hand full of single bangers today wasn't enough Spanish Mike shows his true work ethic here, by snagging a quick interview with Josh Kalis. keep doing what your doing Mike! Time to get chubby at Free Birds at head home!

 I hope you guys enjoyed the sesh, and can make it to the next one, if you see us don’t be shy come say HI!

BRED FOR SUCCESS

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Everyone has their local shop; their local hometown heroes, those guys as a kid you saw skating around town. You would quietly whisper to your friend, “Yo that’s so-and-so.” Watch in anticipation of their next-level maneuvers. Well, these guys were “IT” on the San Diego scene, with a roster that can only be compared to the Yankees. STREET MACHINE, produced the most pro’s out of any shop. Names like Jimmy Carlin, Kellen James, Larelle Gray, Petey Martinez, Lenny Rivas, and not to mention a very-young ripper named Nick Tucker. It was almost as if they were all given this blue print for success. I hope you enjoy this video, please excuse the nostalgia, it’s one of my favorites!

MOVE TO “YOUR” GROOVE

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

So today is one of those days, at least for me, where you wake up and you have a lot on your plate, but you need a lil’ EXTRA motivation. Needless to say I wasn’t feeling it today, so as most of you, like me, are addicted to social media, so that’s the first thing you check. So I woke up, had my usual breakfast smoothie, and checked my news feed. I saw this “mash up” KANYE WEST VS THE XX so I decided to take a listen, and before I knew it I had that extra pep in my step and I was ready to take on the day. I hope this helps to get your day going in the right direction. – SD_ROD
