Glen E. Friedman, the man who has documented most of the iconic & classic photos that you might have reblogged on tumblr at this day & age.

His book “My Rules” features many timeless photos from skateboarding legends ranging from, Tony Hawk to Duane Peters & as well as musical legends such as Minor Threat to Public Enemy. Here are some photos I took from meeting one of my favorite photographers at my favorite pizza place, Pizzanista!

Vans Propeller, most likely you’ve seen this video by now. If not, you’re blowing it and you gotta watch it now. Last week we met up & talked with Dan-Lu about his whole Vans world tour experience, but we can’t forget about Kyle Walker! So we hit up our boy K-Walks through text since he’s outta town & he sent us some photos from his trip.
