Rip N Dip in Puerto Rico
Dec 15, 2015
When O’Conn broke the news to us that he was sending everyone to Puerto Rico for ten days, it was a bit of a shock seeing that most of the group, myself included, had never been out of the country (granted Puerto Rico is still US turf but we don’t need to discuss that here). Needless to say, we were all very excited to check out the island and see what it had to offer. And with the crew consisting of Matt Militano, Ryan Townley, Jeff Carlyle, Max Taylor, Darien Brown, O’Conn and myself, we had a feeling it was going to be a pretty interesting time. As an unexpected bonus, O’Conn got us a penthouse on the top floor of a building directly across the street from the Ritz-Carlton with a picture-perfect view of the beach. Mix this with partially overdosing on chicken, rice and beans (alongside the ever so popular Medalla), having my tooth split in half on the fourth day and O’Conn purposefully driving the wrong way down one-ways just for the hell of it and we had all the ingredients for a crazy trip. Everyone overcame the hot, sticky weather and we were able to give PR a good run for its money. A huge shout out to our amazing tour guides Javier Gutierrez, Yariel Melendez and everyone at rePResent skate shop in San Juan. The trip wouldn’t have been the same without you guys. Until next time, Puerto Rico!
Mike V helmet out now
Dec 2, 2015
Mike Vallely is a true skateboard legend and a lot more: He’s a family man, businessman, musician, stuntman, hockey player, and punk-poet rebel from Edison, NJ who has always charted his own course, and left an indelible mark on skateboarding.
Mike has recently surprised many skaters by choosing to wear a helmet every time he skates, after decades of skating without one. The culture of street skating, which he helped to define, largely rejects helmets. After some soul-searching, Mike decided it was time for him to make a personal change.
“A lot of people have asked, Mike why do you wear a helmet now? ‘You know, to protect my head.’ But you never wore a helmet before… ‘I do now. Get used to it.”
Jeremy Klein, the man behind Hook Ups and street pioneer, hooked up with Etnies footwear, and released some fine shoes, alongside with this clip.
Klein only supports skater owned brands, so working together with Etnies was a no brainer.
Check out this short clip from Jeremy shredding in the past and present.
New Hook Ups boards are on the way to Germany, so stay tuned.
