Thanks to Jim Beam, garlic, road miles, gas cards, Waters and crew, Monster, Contour, Sypniewski, and all the bands. Jaws, Raybourn, Gravette, and four SOTYs—one epic adventure. Hopefully another one is right around the corner...
Stopped in Oxford for a slice of suck, got into a jam and had to bail on Jackson. Made it to the Big Easy and lurked at an indoor bowl. 6am flight on Sunday, fuck this is what we do. —Jake Phelps
24 hours of Memphis. We bootlegged a show at the Gaslight and blew Altown out with an onslaught from Figgy, Gerwer, David Gonzalez, Gravette, Patlanta, and Raney. Some epic shit here kids!
St. Louis under the bridge, from the gutter to the stars. Here's Raney, Fardell, Gerwer, Riley Hawk and the crew. Also, this has one of the gnarliest spots on the trip; Hermann's Hole—a river dance nightmare.
It was only logical to begin the burning in Detroit Crack Rock City. Grant Taylor, Ben Raybourn, and a 40 man onslaught - Skate Rock begins now!
All of the madness; blood, guts, skateboarding, and tunes in one week. Starting the 15th—new towns, new slams, new freaks. Get ready, it's gonna be a long one—it's on! —Jake Phelps
What's left, cinders. When we leave it's over! Here's some more of Josh Borden, David Gonzalez, Milton Martinez, and Grant Taylor in Brazil.
Four bands, four SOTY's, and over 30 maniacs—this one's for the books. Detroit Skate Rock City starts Friday. Come one, come all...
Jimmy Arrighi (World's Best Dad) sets the table for our new interview program - World's Best Brunch. In this first episode he sits down with Skater of the Year, David Gonzalez, to talk pee bottles, Johnny's boner, cool headbands and much, much more. Bon Appetit!
