From the man who secretly can’t read, and advises to never room with Nick Merlino, Dakota Servold, proudly brings you his latest pro model shoe – the Dekline Dakota.

The Dekline Dakota Shoe

Dekline-7

Dekline Dakota-4

The Dekline Dakota is simply superior, just like his ender part in True Blue. The shoe features a waxed suede upper with a canvas side panel and metal eyelets. The outsole is vulcanized, offering the wearer maximum board-feel. The Dekline Timeless Footwear insole is removable and a thin gusseted tongue is included so you don’t have to worry about it sliding out of place. Looking at the top of the tongue, you see a custom Delkine embroidery in-between Dakota Servold’s initials — D.S.

When you think of skateboarding a few brands immediately come to mind. For most of you that company is Vans. Vans truly has played a huge part in what skateboarding is today. They’ve been dedicated to skateboarding since day one and after almost 40 years they released their first ever full length skate video, Vans Propeller. I’m not here to spoil the video, but it’s heavy and that’s that. We headed out to LA for the premiere and anybody and everybody was there. The video began, the crowd went wild and the parts were amazing. When all was said and done we headed to the after party for drinks, food and socializing. As the night went on things began to get blurry. Congrats to Greg Hunt and all the dudes over at Vans, you guys killed it. Check out all the images from the event, then pick up all your Vans needs at Skate Warehouse while you’re waiting for the video to drop!

How To 360 Flip | Skateboarding Trick Tips http://blog.skatewarehouse.com/360-flip-skateboarding-trick-tips/ http://blog.skatewarehouse.com/360-flip-skateboarding-trick-tips/#respond Tue, 21 Apr 2015 19:18:39 +0000 http://blog.skatewarehouse.com/?p=32899 [youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4yFEioqGhQ&w=775] You've got the Kickflips on lock. You've got Shuvits and 360 Shuvits down pat. Varial Flips? No problem. But that damned elusive 360 Flip just keeps flying out behind you! Argh! Well take a deep breath, sit down for a moment and Cole will hook it up with some good advice. Learn how to Tre Flip and go skate it.

The 360 Flip is a must-have in every skateboarder’s bag of tricks. If you haven’t got a tre flip in your arsenal yet, watch this video and Cole will run you through the basics of how to 360 Flip like a boss. Soon you’ll be smashing them down stairs, over gaps, up curbs and everywhere else you can put four wheels down and pull stunts. Watch, learn, go skate!

How To 360 Flip

Before learning to Tre Flip, we recommend learning Kickflips, Pop Shuvits and/or 360 Shuvits first. This isn’t necessary but it will help immensely and those tricks naturally evolve into the 360 Flip once you have them down. Ok, on to the Tre Flip!

How To 360 Flip Front Foot

1. For front foot placement, similar to a kickflip, you should be just under the front bolts at a slight angle. Ready to flip.

How To 360 Flip Back Foot

2. For back foot placement, you should have the ball of your foot in the tail pocket opposite your front foot. Ready to scoop.

How To 360 Flip Setup

3. When you crouch down to start your 360 Flip, you actually want to think of a scoop more than a pop. If you’re having trouble with the trick, practice the hell out of your 360 Shuvits—the scoop is going to be about the same and it will help build confidence for landing back on the board.

How To 360 Flip Scoop 1

How To 360 Flip Scoop 2

How To 360 Flip Scoop 3

4. As you pop up, scoop the tail hard and as the board starts to move, flip the board with your front foot just like a Kickflip.

360 Flip In The Air 1

360 Flip In The Air 2

360 Flip In The Air 3

5. As the board rotates around, make sure to pull your back foot up level with your front foot. Keep your front foot above the flip and out of the way. Watch as your board makes a beautifully symmetrical dual axis rotation through space and time. Feel awesome about this.

360 Flip Catch

6. As your board completes the rotation and levels out, catch it with your front foot and bring your back foot around to the back bolts. It’s time to land this thing!

360 Flip Landing

7. Keeping your feet over the bolts, land evenly and ride away to the sound of your friends cheering your name. They pick you up and carry you down the street like a champion. Congratulations, you just landed a 360 Flip. Now it’s time to learn Switch 360 Flips!

Walt’s Back and Feeling Thrashy http://blog.skatewarehouse.com/thrasher-mousegoat/ http://blog.skatewarehouse.com/thrasher-mousegoat/#respond Thu, 16 Apr 2015 16:00:05 +0000 http://blog.skatewarehouse.com/?p=32456 Thrasher Mousegoat homeWho would have thought Disney backs Thrasher? The Thrasher Mousegoat pushed Micky Mouse out of the way and is taking over. Will this be the only run we'll see of this caliber?

Walt Disney decided to reach his skeletal hand from out of his grave 49 years later to crawl to a phone, get in touch with Jake Phelps and inquire about a Thrasher x Disney collab. Unfortunately, Jake turned the offer down and decided to recreate a familiar looking Disney character instead. Skate Warehouse is pleased to carry the Thrasher Mousegoat snapback hat and t-shirt. If you haven’t latched on to my facetiousness yet, Walt is actually still in his grave and the Thrasher Mousegoat is likely to get a cease and desist letter from Disney’s cartoon lawyers, so grab one of these hats and tees before you can’t find em’.

Thrasher Mousegoat-2

The Thrasher Mousegoat Snapback Hat is black and features the Mousegoat graphic on the front. The hat has somewhat of a shallow head-depth, which is a good thing. Nobody wants a bunch of air floating in-between their head and hat anyway. A 100% polyester hat.

Thrasher Mousegoat

The Thrasher Mousegoat T-Shirt, like the hat, features the Mousegoat print on the front. The Mousegoat is large and easier to spot detail than the hat is. The Mousegoat’s looking rough. He’s got a mean 5 o’clock shadow coming in and long nails poking through his white gloves. You can also see his hair’s getting shaggy in the back. Fortunately, he found some custom yellow shoes that are hoof friendly. The shirt’s thick, 100% cotton and comes in Gray and Navy Blue.
