From skate legends to psycho youth, the art of transitions is alive and well as shown in this montage of deep-dish stunts. Only one way to learn to ride pits this gnarly—get in there!

Legends and young bucks converge each year on this hulking concrete behemoth. Congrats to Vans on 10 years of Combi and big ups to Tristan Rennie for coming out on top. This kid went ape...

Vans helped get a proper skatepark in HB and they had a huge opening day party with Rowley, Hosoi, Layton, Jay Adams, and many others.
It's fitting that Indy would throw a party at this San Jose park which has some of the gnarliest terrain around. Here's Cab, Koston, Raybourn, Gravette, Haslam, Grosso, Red, and many other legends.
NHS opened their museum to a select group of family, friends, and rippers. From Steve Olson to Eric Koston, we all gathered to revisit history and share skateboarding stories in all its glory. Great job Novak and congrats on 40 plus years!
Are you still going to be skating into your 40s? Hopefully you'll still have the fire like these legends. Here's Hosoi, Cab, Grosso, Miller, McGill, and others.
