If you love year-round skate-friendly weather, CA is the place for you.. and if you're in the Salinas area, check out Krown Skateshop. I went to the shop today and checked out a ton of different boards and other skate gear. I'm psyched to see how many of the old style board shapes are back in fashion again, and Krown has a ton of them! I remember all of the crazy shaped decks from Vision, Powell Peralta, and so on when I was just a grom... and Krown had 'em! But don't fear all you new-world skaters, they've got a huge wall of decks for you too. I've been really impressed with Salinas as a city and especially like how the independent, creative/arts and local businesses are happening here. Krown is among that group, and is owned by a real skater who knows and appreciates the roots of skating and is really supporting the skate industry and helping the next generation of skaters get started out too! Check out the photos and if you're in the area, check out the shop! You won't be disappointed.

New York is one of most photogenic cities in the world. Couple that with amazing and creative skateboarding and you will find it hard to beat the photos it will (and does!) produce. The problem is that there is no solid outlet for displaying these photos. You may get lucky to see a low-resolution version of one or two of them floating around some blogs, but is that sufficient? A lot of major European cities have their own mags to help represent their cities (Grey Magazine out of London, for example), so it's time that the world's city had its own. This would benefit many. For one, it would let outsiders into our world of skateboarding through one of the most chaotic cities. It would also help shine light on the local companies, filmmakers, photographers, and skaters that are pushing the boundaries with no mainstream support.

Surfing with local street boys at Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. We rented surf boards at the Surf Club Hotel http://surfclubbd.com located on the beach. It's also a great place to stay with clean rooms and helpful staff. They also support the Bangladeshi Surf Girls organization http://www.gofundme.com/thesurfgirls.
We all have extra decks kicking around. When I was a kid, my parent's garage walls were covered in broken decks. But my old trucks were never good for anything... until now. The changing room at the DC store gave me a great idea: truck clothes hangers, so I grabbed some old trucks and chucked them up in my closet. And once I clipped on a carabiner, I had a belt hanger too!
