Making Of The Vato Sidewalk Surfer Ad

August 16th, 2011      Comments Off    Posted in News

When we first started talking about doing this ad Lance had the great idea of shooting the photo behind glass. Only problem was finding a large, thick enough piece of glass that could take the abuse of a skateboard and that you could see thru. We searched around for a while and were finally introduced by Steve Olson to Jeanette who runs a rad store called “Glass Queen.” Long story short, we got the photo, Lance’s vision came true and the rest is history. Big thanks to Acosta, Lance Jr., Glass Queen and Steve Olson. Check out the new Vato Sidewalk Surfer.

Mega Madness Day…

November 5th, 2010      Comments Off    Posted in News

The Flip team recently traveled to Bob’s compound to check out the infamous Mega Ramp and skate some of the other gnarly obstacles at Bob’s place. It was the hottest November day i’ve ever felt in my life and at high noon Andrew Langi, Bob and Lance decided to pad up and go skate the mega. First, everyone warmed up on the massive quarter pipe, which is basically a tsunami-sized ramp, followed by a shred session to the highest levels by Mr. Burnquist. As the sun continued to pound down on us Rune A.K.A. “The Danish Destoyer” got a couple hammers on the other burly spot at Bob’s place… no biggie! By the end of the day everyone was totally dehydrated and yet ready to keep on skating. So, at dusk we made our way south to an abandoned skate house courtesy of the Built To Shred homies. More gnarly maneuvers, night prowlers, heavy vibes and one of the best skate days ever!! Thanks to Acosta for making the trip with us. Until next time…
