by Rob on Wednesday, July 25, 2012
We’re in Copenhagen right now to run Copenhagen Pro. We came out a few days early to help with an am contest they set up out here for the locals.

Detroit: Depressing and Amazing at the Same Time

by Rob on Sunday, June 24, 2012
When I first got to Detroit and saw the miles and miles of run down neighborhoods and abandoned buildings, I was amazed that it reminded me of parts of Cuba I visited. How can this happen in America? I learned a lot walking through these neighborhoods and talking to some residents. I know everyone says skateboarding is the best thing ever, but after learning about this scene in Detroit and what skateboarders are doing there, you really understand that this skateboard thing and the culture of it is truly something special. Here are some photos and words...

Agenda Long Beach, LA, and Zumiez 100k

by Ryan on Monday, January 30, 2012
My first trip of the year was pretty damn eventful. I don’t think I could have asked for anything more. I went to LA, Long Beach, Encinitas, and Keystone, CO, all in a week’s time, and it was quite an adventure. Good times, great skating, and amazing people. Thanks to Agenda and Zumiez for making it all possible…

Tampa Tourist Mission: Downtown and Channelside Cruiser Board Tour

by Rob on Friday, January 13, 2012
How many tourist missions have we had in all these towns around the world? I love all this time back in Tampa before travel madness starts up again in the spring.
