It all started with a little thing called askateboard, and Rodney Mullen did something great with it. He invented the Ollie. It may not seem like much now, because it’s such a stock trick (perfected with time of course), but at the time it was revolutionary; much like all the other tricks he innovated. In the jock world it would be similar to the guy how dunked the first basketball, or hit the first home run. Thanks Rodney.
It’s pretty amazing to skate comfortably in late November. Despite the recent cold spike in Minnesota, The House skate crew was able to get some shots at the Little Canada skatepark recently. Joe & Justin Scherer, Danny Kern, and Kenny Peterson all made it out for a quick little session. No skateboards broke and we had a blast.

How in the world do skate companies get away with releasing a trailer and making everyone wait almost a year for the flick to premiere? Girl & Chocolate Skateboards‘ Pretty Sweet trailer was uploaded on December 1st, 2011 and the LA world premiere isn’t until November 16th, 2012! The wait will be well worth it. With an unreal lineup of skaters, hesh spots, and a vast amount of time used to edit Pretty Sweet we all now it’s going to be pretty sweet.
Days I arrive at the office and find new emails with vids like this are the best. Reese Forbes, David Clark, Austyn Gillette, and Riley “Black” Hawk skate for Quiksilver, it’s common knowledge, everyone knows that. What everyone may not know is this…Quiksilver makes great skate shoes.
Stay tuned for the new Quiksilver shoes launch in Spring of 2013. It’s going to be a party, and you’re invited.
