From Sunset Skateboards out of California comes the Flare LED Skateboard Wheels with Light Emitting Diodes or LED’s inside the urethane wheels. While not a completely new concept to the market, which is clearly represented in the promo video with the terrible 80’s montage music and filming style and at $39.95 they are not that bad of a deal.

They are still kind of cool and I am sure there are going to be some cool applications for them such as long exposure photography, safety while bombing hills at night or while out for a late night cruise with your gang. But if you are more like me and want just some good Ol’ fashion skate wheels and a new deck then in the words of Ron Burgundy- “Stay classy San Diego”.
Well another summer season has come and gone at the Windells Skate and Snow Camp. It’s amazing the level of progression, creativity and the insane riding that comes out of there every summer. Every time there is a new edit from Windell’s your jaw is on the floor almost the entire video and the final session is no exception. Session seven features iPath’s Team Takeover Narly by Nature skate competition as well as the premiere of Transworld Snowboarding’s new movie “NATION”. There is also a great riding tip throwback from Coach Reed back in 2008 on some, shall we say “time management techniques” while shredding. So sit back and prepare to have your mind blown.
In the 2005 Documentary “The Reality of Bob Burnquist” Bob stated that ” The wants one of these (megaramps) in his back yard”. As you can see form the video and the satellite imagery his dream has come true at his home in Southern California. Bob nicknamed his back yard Dreamland and from the image below you can see why he is known as the king of the mega ramp. If you only have a few minutes to want the video make sure to check out the 6 min mark. Where both Bob and the Helicopter Pilot push the limits.
That’s right, skateboarding will give anyone willing enough to try, life lessons. When you fall, get back up and try it again. Jerry Seinfeld is right, we’re going to be alright.

It’s pretty cool knowing the Minneapolis skate scene is so close. Go Skate Day 2013 couldn’t have been any better. Familia organized a police escort from Uptown, through Downtown and into Nordeast Minneapolis, kids where skitching on the squad, and everyone was stoked all day. Enjoy the edit and pics. We’re already psyched for next year.
