Inhaled some Arctic (featuring Active Pro’s Figgy & Nuge as well as Slave Pro, Frecks) into our lungs and burned our eyelashes off with High On Fire at the Echoplex. Good night! Thanks Converse!

Jeremy Leabres On RVCA

Active Am, Jeremy Leabres is officially now on RVCA clothing! Congrats!

Jeremy Leabres | Welcome to the Team from RVCA on Vimeo.

RVCA Welcomes Jeremy Leabres to the Team. Video by Brandon Jensen, song Summer with Phil by Dead Ghosts courtesy of Burger Records.
Jeremy Leabres: Bursting onto the scene relatively unknown; Jeremy Leabres’s debut part in Emerica’s 2013 video ‘Made’ caught everyones attention and made him a name to watch in the world of street skating as well as landed him a spot on the exclusive Toy Machine team. Already friends with much of the RVCA team it was a natural fit to bring him on board. His laid back and down to earth attitude paired with the ability to skate big rails and gaps effortlessly continues to impress and pave the way for future street skaters.

My Ride: Anthony Schultz

Anthony Schultz is a man of many talents. How long can you balance your board on your toes? Long enough to list all your set up specs? At 0:42 when he ollies up the two-block then kickflips off?! That’s nuts! Go to Memorial Park and look at that! Find all of Anthony’s products from $lave, Brixton, and Pig Wheels at activerideshop.com.”
