It’s that time again, the bell has rung and it’s time for class. This is the Status Report, our bi-weekly segment where we fill you in on as much skate industry news as the illuminati allows.
OMG Cory Kennedy’s on Fourstar! No real surprise here. We all pretty much saw this coming. They did make a cool little video that I’d highly recommend you check out though. Personally, I thought he was already on Fourstar, that’s how meant-to-be this sponsorship is.
Kirby is officially on Deathwish! And I’m not talking about our childhood friend that was pink and defeated evildoers. Deathwish’s newest am is Taylor Kirby. They might not have anything in common besides a name but they both definitely kill it. If you bought the special edition of the Deathwish Video than you probably watched his shared part. I’m guessing you didn’t though, since we’re all broke. Either way check it out!
Jaws: Attack of the Asphalt Yacht Club. Aaron “Jaws” Homoki now rides for Asphalt Yacht Club. Maybe he’ll ollie off a yacht in his next video part.
Dylan Rieder is Fucking Awesome! If you haven’t heard yet, Dylan will be riding for FA. Their whole team is starting to shape up into something deadly and I can’t wait to see where it goes. If you haven’t caught his part in the Cherry video do yourself a favor and do so immediately.
What will Bam Margera do next? Whatever the fuck he wants! If what he wants is a game show on TBS premiering on April 14th, then that’s what he gets. Bam’s Badass Game Show is a new crazy game show brought to you by none other than Bam. The commercial features some pretty chill dub step too.
Sierra Fellers has lost his Foundation? Well he didn’t actually lose it but he no longer rides for them for reasons unknown. We can’t wait to see where he ends up but it’s sad to see him go.
Mike York is a Roller Horror! A new company on the come up is Roller Horror by Mike York. At the moment is seems to only consist of “fun” shaped decks and a few t-shirts. All the artwork is pretty rad though. Make sure to check it out.
What’s an Illegal Civilization? A new video that’s just dropped featuring the likes of Nakel Smith, Kevin Bradley, Sean Pablo, Louie Lopez and many more! Check out the trailer below. Seems like a solid “homie” video. I’m sure it’ll be worth the watch.
Lem Villemin turned pro! The cliché am has just entered the pro ranks and you all understand why. Dude kills it on the board. Well deserved and congrats!
Russ Pope and Neil Blender have an upcoming art show! These two are incredible artists and their collaboration is amazing. It’s being held at Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow in Long Beach California from April 5th through the 27th. So if you’re in the area be sure to check it out.
