Paul Rodriguez stopped through NYC this week to talk to Tim Brodhagen about “LIFE” with Paul Rodriguez, his new show on Network A debuting October 23. Paul also reveals that he still stresses before big contests and that his ultimate goal after his skate career ends is to become a serious actor. There’s never a dull moment in this “LIFE.”
Lil Wayne brought New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward a blast of positivity at the DEWeezy skate park grand opening with Paul Rodriguez and Theotis Beasley. After skating the park, Weezy reveals how his experience as a skateboarder compares to music in his life and his main goal of legitimately getting on a flow program. Dew skaters P-Rod and Theotis also talk about what it’s like to skate with Wayne.
The DEWeezy skate park project, spearheaded by Lil Wayne with support from Mountain Dew, aims to help revitalize the Katrina-ravaged neighborhood through skateboarding. Fellow Dew Team skaters Keelan Dadd, Justin Schulte, Cody Davis, Boo Johnson, & Carlos Zarazua also skated during the epic first session.

Check out Mr. SkateCity himself in his very own “FORGIVE ME FOR THE WAIT!!!” Part. Rafael Pereira is back on the skateboarding scene.
Transit Authority – For those who know where to look, New York City is one giant playground—or skate park, or even surf paradise. Between the bankers and the goodfellas, the hipsters and the hustlers, there is a thriving community of action sports athletes. This skater Rafael Pereira knows that NYC is as raw as any place on earth for slashing, grinding, and barrel riding, and the G-Shock models they wear are just as sick, and as durable, as the city itself.
Justin Brock, Youness Amrani, and Wieger Van Wageningen travel to Taiwan with Nike Skateboarding European destroyers Marek Zaprazny and Daniel Lebron.
