10 Questions for Sho about his trip to Colombia 

How was the trip to Colombia? The trip was super sick. Most definitely going back one day. Where did you stay? In Bogota with Alex and Chela then we stayed at the Wepa House while we were in Cali, and with Carolina Ospina in Medellin. Daily diet? Empanadas and Coffee Favorite sessions? We had a pretty killer session my last day before I went back to Canada Favorite party? Leonera after party was real fun Things that scared you? The hills we’re so gnarly that it was survival mode skating and trying to make it down in one piece Any crazy stories? We were driving back to Bogota and our rental car decided to stop working and leak oil everywhere so we pull over and see a motorcyclist and semi truck crash. Any lessons? Keep your backpack with you all the time Any realizations? Skaters are cool anywhere you go. What is your current board set up? The Valhalla Sho Stopper with Paris Savants 50/43, and usually 83a Cages

Lester Kasai Turns 50!

All the skaters from the late 70’s  / early 80’s are either turning 50 soon or have turned 50. If you really think about it – it is really amazing that these guys can skate on this level at age 50. Unreal. Super inspiring. A whole generation that was raised on concrete skateparks (like Skate City in Torrance) was super hyped when concrete parks started being built again in the early 2000’s.

Lester celebrated his 50th Birthday with a fun session with lifelong friends at the Vans Skatepark in Huntington Beach.

Jake Golden – Dream Sesh at Arto Saari’s Bowl


” I got to visit Arto Saari’s backyard bow! l was really lucky that Arto, the legendary skater and photographer, took some these cool shots of me shredding the bowl. His bowl is so cool and Arto is the best – big thanks to Neal Mims for making these special moments happen for us kids. In the pictures I am wearing my S1 Lifer Helmet, the only helmet I trust to keep me safe! ” – Jake Golden
