Just about to head down to Vista and start setting up my "Hasta La Vista" show. Should be a fun one. I'm releasing a new Cabin screen print, edition of 30, and my new Cabin sketches zine. The fun starts tomorrow night at Booze Brothers brewery, and there's live music from LOOM. I'll be showing a lot of original art from Heroin boards and stuff I've done for other brands too, there'll be originals for sale, prints, and more. Hope to see you there.
Made a little edit to hype the fact that our Texas Chainsaw boards are back in stock. Officially licensed collab with the folks who made the original 1974 film. Hyped, get em before they sell out again!
Craig went on holiday recently, where to? Tenerife? No, Magaloof? No, Palestine, a country with its fair share of troubles, what did they ever do to deserve Craig? Poor bastards. Laurie Stearn went with him and shot a bit of footage on his phone, I threw an edit together, Enjoy.
Super stoked to announce the Note x Heroin Wordsmith board. Our guys Tom Day and Joe O'Donnell both work and and ride for Note, so it made a lot of sense to make this board. Plus, I love Manchester, grew up skating there, so I'm hyped that we made this happen. Available from Note now.

I am stoked out of my tiny mind to announce the collaboration of Heroin Skateboards and the original 1974 version of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre film. One of my favorite films of all time, a huge inspiration on me and my little company since day one. I can't believe this came together and there are only about five films in total that I would even consider collaborating with. We have a collection of four boards, two shirts and 4 stickers, I can't imagine these will be around for long.
Jenkem just put up an interesting little article about influential Japanese video parts. Our guys Chopper and Gou had honorable mentions, and thought it was time to put up Gou's Overground Broadcasting part by Takahiro Morita, and Choppers extended Video Nasty part (Hamaji Edit)
Maybe its time to watch Craigs Bath Salts part again. I liked this part a lot, it shows how entertaining it is skating with Craig.
I'm not going to lie, it was one of the funnest events we ever did. More of our guys should retire so that we can throw parties like this one. It was awesome. There was a coffee sponsor, thanks Thunderking coffee, there was cake, there was art, prizes, a Shimizu edit care of Joey Sinko. Sapporo supplied the beer, thanks so much. Bob played some Smiths and Morrissey songs, we had a dance party. Good times, for a change...
If you were there then you know how much it ruled. You can recreate those warm fuzzy feelings you had on Saturday by watching the video below, try and spot yourself, remember what a great time we all had. If you didn't make it you can wallow in regret and self pity for not clearing your calendar to make it this incredible event. Either way, you win!!
Friend Zone is an awesome Seattle based independent skate video that came out right at the end of last year, our man Logan Devlin had a part and Jake Menne the man behind this one was cool enough to let us share his part on our site. Definitely worth picking up this one if you can find it.
