Deck the walls too! Displaying your favorite skateboard decks has never been easier thanks to Woody's Skateboard Hangers. These revolutionary hangers mount to your walls with included hardware (dry wall screws too!) and the skateboard hardware is installed from the back of the hanger making a virtually invisible wall mount for you decks.

Blessing of the Boards

This event was rescheduled for May 23, 2010. It looks like the weather will clear just long enough for this event to take place Sunday afternoon from 2PM until about 6PM. Bring your board and your best bag of tricks as there will be prizes, live music, and free food! Blessing of the Boards!

Curb Slappies!

OJ Green Heat - Neil Blender

Indian Wig "Next Stop Santa Ana"

Indian Wig is: Lance Mountain,Hagop Najarian and Neil
Blender. This 2009 recording is paired with super 8 skate footage of
Skip Disney, Mike Smith, Lance Mountain, & Neil Blender shot in the
early 80's.

Wish List

No matter how many boards I have set up to ride it seems I can always use another one. Or at least I think I can. This new Mike Vallely from Element is just bad ass. Very close to the O.G. Powell Peralta shape but modernized.

Signs. "The sign said you had to have a membership card to get inside." On Saturday May 15, 2010, the City of Dunbar, WV, allowed us to ignore the signs. After 25 years this was a long time coming. The title caption and photograph are courtesy of David Tolley. Keep ignoring the signs.
