Caliber Truck Co. – Healthy Bois

“Word on the street is that North Carolina has emerged as the holy grail of ridiculously steep and curvy roads. We had to see for ourselves if the rumors were true so we put together a crew of some of our healthiest bois and sent them to meet up with NC local Philip Skaar. What we found was one of the strongest and healthiest scenes out there, and so many runs for us to skate the boys didn’t have much time to practice runs. The schedule consisted of following our guides to a new run, film a first descent, and hope to make it out unscathed. Wash, rinse, repeat. The results is 20 minutes of the most hectic footage we’ve ever filmed. Huge thank yous and respect to all the locals who helped us along the way.” – Caliber Truck Co

Stephen Vaughan Is Organizing A Freeride On An Insane Private Road In Beverly Hills.

Last year Stephen Vaughan was sitting at home looking for new spots on Google Maps when he found an insane private road in Beverly Hills with a bunch of steep, tight hairpins. Not expecting a reply, he emailed the property owner to see if he could get permission to skate.

In March Stephen hit me up to go film and take photos: he’d heard back from the property manager and they were stoked to host an event. I got my gear and met a bunch of Lanydachtz dudes at the front gate.

The road is turnt up. I didn’t skate because I was getting over an injury, but it’s sort of like Giants Head meets Burke: super steep, narrow, with good pavement and a ton of hairpins. Check the video on Stephen’s Facebook for more info on the hill.

The event is October 15-16. There will be food trucks, a beer garden, a temporary skatepark, and music performances. Follow @givea2ndchanceskatefestival on Instagram for updates.

Letter of Recommendation: Early Spring and Late Fall Skating

Checking for cars is much easier when you can see through the trees. This is Dex Manning, Austin Pedroni, and Stephan Vaast.

Letters of Recommendation is a new series of articles about people, places, and things we’re stoked on. This installment was written and photographed by Max Dubler.

Most of us think of summer as peak skate season, which makes perfect sense: the young’uns are out of school, the pavement is warm and slides nicely, the winter salt and sand are washed away, and the skateboard industry lives in SoCal’s perpetual summer.

Every skater who has suffered through a New England winter knows that riding in the cold, like skating in the rain, kind of sucks and should only be done when you’re truly fiending for a rip. (more…)
