Both Volcom and Spitfire are heavy hitters in the skateboard industry. Once we found out they were teaming up for the Volcom x Spitfire Collection, we knew it was going to be a big deal. With the likes of Grant Taylor, Kyle Walker, Collin Provost, Chris Pfanner, Dennis Busenitz and more holding it down for both squads, it’s no question that both Volcom and Spitfire know skateboarding. Fire and stone don’t burn alone.
You kids out there may not know the name but Richard Novak (and his partners Jay Shuirman and Doug Haut) literally created the skate industry that we know and love today.

Inside of Rich’s brain is 40+ years of skateboarding’s entire history—take a peak behind the curtain and watch the interview!
In the latest of new releases for the highly coveted Nike SB Dunk we have the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Dark Magnet Grey/White/Red.

The shoe starts off in traditional Dunk fashion, with a clear outsole and black midsole, but it only gets more fantastic from there.

At long last, our beautiful home town of San Luis Obispo has opened up a new skatepark! Though we loved the old SLO skatepark, it was in serious need of replacement. After years of fundraising, public forums and city council meetings, the park is finally complete and open for business.
