Exciting news to share with everyone, this has been on the cards for a minute but it just got made official. Lee Yankou now rides for Heroin Skateboards.
We recently borrowed the Deathwish van and headed up to SF for a few days. Things started out with breakfast at what used to be Squat and Gobble on Haight street, and then we skated for the whole rest of the day. This is pretty much what we did every single day. We racked up a bunch of footage for our upcoming video as well as enough VX stuff to make an edit. I'm stoked to say that the edit went up on the Thrasher site today. Check it out. Heroin in the Bay Area featuring Tony Karr, Zack Krull, Patrick Franklin, Adrian Adrid, Nick Rodriguez and Nick Michel. Thanks to everyone in SF for making our trip so rad, and special thanks to Josh Robertson for the floor space, and all at Thrasher for hosting the video.
Full page Chopper (and DAL) photo in the new Skateboard Mag. This is a really good mag, you should pick it up, there's a lot of great Barrier Kult stuff in there too. So much stuff happening this week, it's a whirlwind. New Catalog comes out, we have an edit coming up on the Thrasher site, and some other stuff. Watch this space!
Here's the latest Tony Karr ad, shot by Alex Papke.
Shane Powell put a little part together using some spare footage he had kicking around, there's some good stuff in this little edit, check it out, GO BUBBY!!
Need more Zack Krull footage in your life? Me too.
I was stoked when he came round this morning and told me that him and Gottwig had a shared Hi8 part out.
Enjoy!! Going to put a couple more parts up this week too!
Happy New year by the way.
We went on holiday by mistake! Well actually we went on a road trip that was so much fun that it felt like a vacation. Vegas rules, we skated fun stuff, met old friends, made new ones. Skated rad spots. Here's a rad little edit that Cody Thompson made for us.
The new Heroin board series just came out at Baker Boys Distribution. Inspired by those little rubber finger puppet guys, the "Scary Monsters" series should be in stores soon!
All on the same great quality wood and with the great shapes you've come to expect from Heroin Skateboards.
Our guy in France, Ste Malet has a little edit up at the Kingpin site. Good stuff, worth watching to see the nutty old bird with the baguette at the end.
Pixels TV just put up the last part of the Chris Pulman Documentary thingy.
Some good stuff about the early Heroin Skateboards days on there.
