Converse is back at it again. The crew is stacked, the footy is tight and the skating is epic. Milton Martinez comes out with a bang, the dude bust some seriously gnarly maneuvers and makes that shit look easy. Though there is only one (? I dunno, I can’t count) Aaron Herrington clip, it was worthy of ender so you know it’s dope AF. Louie, Zered, Tom and the rest of the squad all put it down in classic fashion, once again fueling up your stoke tank. After all is said and done, the CONS Hijacked Journals are nice l’il piece of some skate action. Oh yea, Dolan Stearns is friggin’ tight.

K-Terps is pretty damn sick. His style and trick selection are among the best, and his skating definitely stands out from the crowd of flip-in, flip-out robots. Creative skating has proven itself to be the most enjoyable; sure 20 stair handrail bangers are gnarly, but they are far from relatable. Simple tricks done well at cool spots reign supreme. Kevin makes a revert on flat look amazing, something very few can claim. It’s been said before- if it doesn’t get you hyped to skate then why watch it? Kevin Terpening’s HUF Classic part will definitely light the stoke to go out and hit some curb cuts.

This month, the SW Aux Cord got passed to Griffin Chiou. Griffin writes the majority of material you read here on our blog (assuming you’re cool enough to lurk here ;), and does a damn-good job doing it. Outside of work, Griff is regularly skating and he’s a true good-time-having man. You can hear it in the jams he selected for his mix. Sympathize with Mariah Carey for a bit, then nod out with Jay-Z. So, here you have it — one long, mixed MP3 of tunes selected by Griffin Chiou. Plug in and tune out of the world for a bit.

Skateboarding is fun. Hell, ask most anyone that works here at Skate Warehouse and you would hear a unanimous statement- that it’s the greatest thing ever. However, in order to enjoy it to it’s full potential there are a few basic things you need to learn. Pushing, turning, ollies, etc… just riding the thing can be a challenge. There’s almost no better place to learn all these things than at the skatepark. To state the obvious, skateparks are built specifically for skateboarding thus providing a great place to learn how to skate. There are no rules in skateboarding, but there is a proper code of conduct while at a skatepark. Skate however you want, do the tricks that make you happy and skate the things you want to skate. But when you’re at the skatepark, there are a few simple things to keep in mind that will make your skating more enjoyable and keep you (and others) from unnecessary injury. So on that note, we’re here to help you stay safe at the park and stoked on skating.

Skatepark Etiquette

skatepark etiquette-4

Don’t be this guy.

1. Wait your turn. We all love an empty skatepark; free reign over the entire zone taking whatever line (path) tickles your fancy at that moment. But more often than not there will be other people joining you at the park that day, whether they are close friends or out-of-towners stopping through. In either case it’s important to wait your turn, letting others get their run in before you take your second. No one likes getting cut off, and doing so will likely result in getting snaked yourself.

skatepark etiquette

Classic perpetration of bad skatepark etiquette.

2. Check your line. Be aware of where you’re going and be aware of others at the park that might be going against or across your direction. Many unnecessary collisions could have and can be avoided just by checking your line before you go. Keep your eyes open for people that may have been going before you and give the right-of-way accordingly. Accidents happen and some collisions are blind-sided and no ones fault. But if you’re going to crash, it’s better to slam trying a trick than running into another skater.

skatepark etiquette-2

3. Don’t block obstacles. Sure that piece of flatground right in front of the handrail might be a good place to practice your kickflips, but the guy trying to grind that same rail is going to become quite frustrated. And nothing can be quite as maddening as someone sitting down on a ledge you’ve been trying a trick for hours on. The perfect place for you to start your run might also be right in front of a hip someone else is skating. Be aware. If you’re gonna practice your flatground or take a breather make sure to do it somewhere out of the way of others.

skatepark etiquette snapchert

Get out of the way BEFORE you send that tight snapchat to the homies

4. Get out of the way. It may seem the same as number three, but getting out of the way when you slam or bail helps keep everyone safe. If you fall at the bottom of a stairset, in a mini ramp or anywhere else, as long as you’re OK, get out of the way as soon as possible.

skatepark etiquette-5

5. Keep the park clean. There’s almost nothing worse at a skatepark than stepping in someone else’s spit, gum or spilled drinks. Even worse is when people leave their fast-food trash and scraps for others to clean up. Skateparks normally have plenty of trash cans for your waste and nearby grassy areas to hock your loogies. Be courteous of the space that has been provided for you, pick up your trash and keep the skating surfaces clean and loogie free.

skatepark etiquette-7

Fighting is lame. The world already has too many “tough guys”

6. Be nice! We can all admit that frustration can cause us to be less-than-friendly to other skaters. But regardless of age, gender, race or skill level everyone is there for the same purpose. Attitude makes a huge difference in your enjoyment from skating, and can make or break a session. Treat others with respect, and hopefully, respect will be given in return.

I don’t know about you, but I sure missed Alien Workshop on their short hiatus. Well, AWS is back in action and in the zone again. They have a fresh team of amateurs and new people behind the scenes handling business. Now being ran through the skater-owned and operated distro Tum Yeto, AWS is well on their way to becoming a powerhouse brand once again. The graphics are even back to their former glory, case in point- the Alien Workshop Sectachrome series of decks. Silhouettes, color blocks and collages make up the aesthetic of this series, while top shelf wood keeps you rolling and quality shapes to suit any taste will make for some happy skating.

In collaboration with the release of the adidas x Spitfire collection, adidas threw a best trick contest at San Francisco’s SoMa skatepark for some ripping and good times. Many pros were in attendance, such as Dennis Busenitz and Jake Donnelly, plus an appearance by Antwuan Dixon. The kids were getting it, tons of rad tricks went down and you can feel the stoke in this clip. As with any frenzied park barge, everyone was going after it, regardless of who was in front or behind them. Some makes were epic, some slams were brutal, and all-in-all it was a rad time. Check out the adidas Best Trick Contest at SoMa here!

Summertime is demo-time! The Fallen Footwear team made their way up to SLO this past weekend for a good old-fashioned shop signing and a demo at the park. Legend and brand-owner Jamie Thomas cruised up with Dane Burman, James Brockman, Tony Cervantes, Tommy Sandoval and Brian Hansen; needless to say the kids were stoked. The dudes rolled up to the shop and the crowd was buzzing. After a quick tour of the warehouse, it was time for the signing to commence. Posters were signed, swag was distributed and everyone in attendance was hyped. But the day wasn’t over just yet, there was still a demo to put on. After the signing and some out-front warm-ups, the crew headed over to the park- demo time baby! These dudes are the definition of professional, putting on a show that no one would soon forget. Dane Burman is a monster, Tommy Sandoval is a straight legend and James Brockman is just about as buck as it gets. Jamie Thomas played S.K.A.T.E. with the groms, it really doesn’t get much cooler than that. Check out the photos from the Fallen Footwear Signing & Demo below!
