  • The HEX Bus Pops Up At Active Rancho w/ Guy Mariano

    This past weekend we had a HEX pop up shop at Active Ride Shop's Rancho Cucamonga location. We were fortunate enough to get one of the best skaters in the game, Guy Mariano to come hang with us for the day. HEX recently launched at Active and we wanted to offer a promotion that would benefit Active and the local Rancho skaters. The first 30 people to buy a HEX backpack got a ticket for a skate session with Guy at Active's private skatepark...pretty sick! A lot of kids showed up and we started the day off right with a few games of skate.

  • Art Sux Anyways Photo Show in DTLA

    3P1A0042
    We recently sponsored a photo show in Los Angeles at Think Tank Gallery.  The show was organized by Art Sux Anyways and raised money for the Music Unites charity, so we were down with that for sure.

    3P1A9949

    The curated mix of photographers spanned both East and West coasts and was intended to "document the lifestyles that we live and breathe, bringing the tranquil and the disobedient to one location where the viewer can, too, participate in the simplicity of nature and the complexity of adapting to urbanization".  Some of the photographers on display included C.R. Stecyk III, Grant Gutierez, Liz Gilson, and Morgan Phillips, to name a few.

    3P1A0002

    3P1A0005

    We were lucky enough to be able to select and feature one of our favorite photographers, trashhand, and it was great to see his shot of the Paris underground on such a large scale.

    3P1A0105

    3P1A9907
    We brought the HEX Bus along and maneuvered into a very Austin Powers inspired parking spot for the evening.  Desillusion Magazine was also out back showing videos over their projector.

    3P1A0067
    The Black Suns provided the music and Golden Road Brewery provided the beer, so it was a good night for all involved.

    3P1A0089

    3P1A0024
    Max Ehrlich and Nathan Warner were our distinguished hosts

    3P1A0023

    So check out some of these fine photographers and be on the lookout for The HEX Bus - you never know where it will turn up next!

  • Vans Propeller: A Masterpiece 50 Years In The Making

    Vns_Propeller_Itunes_Ad.jpg7_Today is the day.  50 years in the making and with over 5 years of footage, Vans releases it's first ever full length skateboarding video!  We got a first look at the world premier held at the beautiful Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles.  Luckily, we got tickets in advance as the premier sold out and was packed full.  Crazy to think that this is Vans' first skate video, but it was well worth the wait.   No one was prepared for what we were about to see...

    Los Angeles world premier flyer.  The first time Propeller was shown anywhere, and the first stop of 9 premiers that were held around the world.

    The Team: Cab, Caples, Lutheran, Hunt Allen, Walker, Chima, Rowan, Dustin, Rowley, AVE, Barros, Grosso, Pfanner, Berle, Crockett, Hassan, Dill, Cardiel, Trujillo, Hosoi, Barbee, Alva.  What a lineup!  Everyone delivers, too many bangers to remember...can't wait to watch this at least 10 more times!

    vans-propeller-video-1

    One of the best skate teams out there.  So many amazing skaters...Who's part will be your favorite?

    tumblr_nmkhmeBPTZ1s593tro1_1280

    My personal favorite.  #1 - A.V.E.  They saved the best for last, that's for sure.

    IMG_0127

    That may have been the best skate video I have ever seen.  Greg Hunt created a masterpiece, it took a few years, but you can't rush perfection.  This is a straight-up gnarly skateboarding video.  A modern take on all aspects and generations of skateboarding that will make you want to get on your board and never stop pushing.  Full parts from some of the best in the business.  Check out Propeller today, get amped, lace up your Vans and go skate!

  • Coachella 2015 - Weekend 2 Photo Recap

    3P1A4063

  • Neckface - Drinkin' On The Job @ New Image Art

    We're no strangers to New Image Art Gallery, so when they announced a solo NeckFace exhibition on a Friday night, it was on! The name and theme of the show was "Drinkin' On The Job" and it seemed fitting to head down to Hollywood and have a beer while shooting some rad pieces.

    Neck_Flier

    I showed up just before doors opened at seven and was blown away by the huge line to get in, it went all the way down the block and was starting to wrap around the corner. Neckface and free beer on a Friday were the right ingredients to start a party and as the night went on, things got pretty wild!

    3P1A9779

    3P1A9785

    The line moved slowly and the entire sidewalk filled up as we waited. It was basically the equivalent of tailgating before a football game, everyone was partying in line before entering and it got even crazier as we went in.

    3P1A9787

    3P1A9835

    The gallery was packed, hot, and the free beer was running out fast. I made my way through the drunken crowd and saw tons of awesome Neckface pieces scattered all around the room. I know some of the beer bottles and cans were placed on purpose to go with the theme of the show, but they really started to pile up towards the end of the night. The art seemed to be in it's natural habitat and I'm sure it's exactly what Neckface wanted.

    3P1A9792

    What do you spend your money on?

    3P1A9794

    Simple math, it makes sense...

    3P1A9795

    Are you a beer??? Classic Neckface, hilarious.

    3P1A9812

    This one cracked me up! Damn, It's dead in here...

    3P1A9811

    3P1A9814

    Lots of love on Instagram tonight:  @nastyneckface1 #Neckface #Drinkinonthejob #newimageart

    These custom Neckface kegs were insane! Some interesting characters hanging out around them as well...

    3P1A9805

    3P1A9803

    3P1A9806

    3P1A9808

    New Image Art was one big party tonight, I bet they didn't know it was going to get this crazy!

    3P1A9802

    If I get shot, you get shot!!! This was a huge piece that you saw right when you walked inside.

    3P1A9844

    Even after the gallery closed, the party raged on in the streets of Hollywood. Not sure how the cops allowed this to happen... Only Neckface can bring together such a rowdy crowd for an art show!

    3P1A9847

    The "Drinkin' On The Job" exhibition is on display at New Image Art (7920 Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood) until September 13th. It won't be as rowdy, but go check out some awesome and hilarious art while you can.

     

  • Andrew Reynolds "Polaroids"

    IMG_7241

    Recently, iconic professional skateboarder Andrew Reynolds gave the public a glimpse into his life through a series of his personal Polaroids and 35mm prints. I have skated for over fifteen years and grew up watching “The Boss” Andrew Reynolds kill it year after year. I made sure to be there for opening night of the exhibition at the well-respected Known Gallery on LA’s street-wear mecca: Fairfax Avenue.

    The event was curated by Vice’s Patrick O’Dell who gives his viewers a look into the lives of pro skaters through a video series called Epicly Later’d.  O’Dell found tons of unique photographs stashed away in Boss man’s house and even though Reynolds had no intention of sharing them, O’Dell had to. Reynolds has been shooting photos since he was a young skater and has kept these memories of skating in his driveway, his first Birdhouse tours with Tony Hawk and the shenanigans that went on with the Baker boys. It was amazing to see these photos and imagine the stories that went along with most of them. The exhibit was only open for a few days, so if you missed out, take a look and enjoy!

    IMG_7259As soon as you walk in, the place was packed! Dustin Dollin and tons of pro skaters were there to support.

    IMG_7219Stoked to see this jumbo Polaroid of the infamous Antwuan Dixon right when you walk in. Legend!

    IMG_7261Followed up by two amazing skaters: Slash and Ali Boulala. Classic Ali right there!

    IMG_7242

    Before The Boss: some amazing childhood photos of Andrew mastering his craft on a skateboard.

    IMG_7233

    Down the line. Endless Polaroids. Brayden and photos of all the homies.

    IMG_7223

    Andrew's daughters, Kevin "Spanky" Long and more of Dustin Dollin.

    Erik Ellington and Jerry Hsu Two completely different skaters, right next to each other. Awesome to see!

    IMG_7227

    Nasty Neckface. Incredible artist, always a part of the skate scene. That wraps up the left side of the exhibit.

    IMG_7229

    So awesome to see all of the portrait Polaroids all framed together. This was a center piece at the back of the exhibit as you made your way around the room. A lot of these were blown up and used for the show.

    IMG_7248

    The future of skateboarding. Always good to see youngsters hopping on a board! He's got tricks too!

    IMG_7255

    The crowd from the back. Tons of support for The Boss from the skateboard community.

    IMG_7230

    THE BOSS. Passed out with some munchies. I wonder what he thinks looking back at this one. Is this good?

    IMG_7262

    Hmmm...what are you up to Andrew?? Bet there's a story behind this one...

    IMG_7251

    IMG_7257

    IMG_7256

    IMG_7258Here's a good one. Jim Greco after losing a little something. Pain, then surprise and relief.

    IMG_7239

    Such a great event and I hope more skaters put on similar shows. This was a photographic version of Epicly Later'd, each photo told a story about some point in the life of Andrew Reynolds. So glad that Patrick O'Dell decided to put this together and gave us a rare look at some of the crazy times in Andrew's life. It's always so inspiring to see the skateboard community come together and support each other. Andrew is 36 and reached legend status years ago, don't ever stop doing what you love! Skateboarding is my passion, it's the best thing ever. This show definitely confirmed how much I love skating and got me stoked to get out there and skate.
