don’t be a cool guy

Don’t be a cool guy. Don’t be the guy who thinks he’s super cool just because he’s good at skating. Ever read a book? Don’t be a cool guy. Just because you’re wearing the hottest gear or dressing in the latest trends, does that make you cool? Don’t be a cool guy. Don’t think that smoking weed or drinking beer is a cool personality trait. Anybody can do that. It takes no skill. Don’t be a cool guy. Don’t be the guy saying, “Fuck all those corny sponsors,” but then back your boy when the same sponsors are hooking him up because “he’s just getting his.” Don’t be a cool guy. Don’t be a snake at the skatepark. Don’t be a cool guy. Don’t preach that skateboarding isn’t a sport,…

(Vibeology is a song by Paula Abdul that was released in 1991; right around the same time that vibing entered skateboarding) I didn’t catch their names, but they knew mine. This was blisteringly clear, as my name was peppering their deadly invectives hurled towards my friends and I. As spot-on as their insults were, I have to admit: I was flattered. Sitting in a cluster on our skateboards, unwittingly engaged in a one-sided game of verbal dodge ball as two older skateboarders hucked blistering insults towards myself and my friends with ominous accuracy, I was both hurt and thrilled that these older guys at least knew who I was. Getting vibed at the skate shop was and is a rite of passage. This, of course, was 1988. Vibing, not yet named, still…

converse cons sean pablo ctas pro

Although the All Star was created in 1917 as a non-skid basketball shoe, its timeless silhouette has stretched its lifespan far beyond a basketball court and into skateboarding where it’s been since the beginning. Sean Pablo completely deconstructed and customized his new CONS CTAS Pro, slimmed it down a bit and personalized it with some sketches. It’s built with rubber-backed canvas, so you don’t need to trip when it rips and it has that cushy OrthoLite footbed in it so your feet will be stoked. Lace a pair up and see for yourself.…

the tony hawk foundation

We checked in with our good friend Alec Beck over at the Tony Hawk Foundation to see what they’ve got going on lately and how you can contact them to get the ball rolling on getting your own town a skatepark. But it’s going to take some work on your end, so don’t think it’s just a handout. Community activation is key and Alec is here to let you know how it works. If you want a park, make it happen! How long have you been working at the THF and what is your role? I’ve been the Programs Manager for three years now. I help people with their public concrete skatepark projects. How many people work along-side you? It’s a small outfit of eight people, two of which work in Programs with me. Some…
