Alien Workshop Give Away!

The nice folks at Alien Workshop gave us some product to give away… And instead of keeping it for myself (which I’d like to do…) I’m going to give it to you!  All you have to do is one simple thing… well, maybe two…

1.  The image below is hidden somewhere on our website. Find the image.

2. Take that image and the item number that the image is found in and post it on our facebook page.

The first person to do that will win some free goodies from Alien Workshop!  Good luck and happy hunting!

Error loading Flickr gallery

Skate fans from all over the place culminated at UCLA’s Royce Hall for Alien Workshop’s new video ‘Mindfield’. If you like or are interested in any of the following things, you might be a fan of the video:

Heath Kirchart, adult braces, Tyler Bledsoe, Mikey Taylor, blood, Rob Dyrdek, Dylan Rieder, white guys on skateboards, Atlanta, fat chicks in party hats, Omar Salazar, Grant Taylor, unveiling Jake Johnson, Steve Berra, wind-up toys, segways and people who ride them, AVE, Arto Saari, Jason Dill, and/or actual aliens.

If you like a total of none of the aforementioned things, you should refrain from ever watching the video. The choice is yours. You can still look at the photos I took from the premiere though.

Go Skateboarding Day Video

Adobe Flash is required to view video content.

Go Skateboarding Day in Ohio looked like a lot of fun. Riding in the back of pickup trucks and blowing up fireworks may be illegal here in California, but in good old Ohio they wouldn’t have it any other way. As you watch this video, you may be wondering what Norwegian Black Metal has to do with Go Skateboarding Day in Ohio. That’s good, cause so am I. Video courtesy of Erik Bragg.

GSD with AWS, DC & Active Photos!

Error loading Flickr gallery

For the third consecutive year, Active, DC and Alien Workshop have joined forces to bring the biggest go Skateboarding Day event we could get together to the DC Skate Plaza in Kettering, Ohio. Alien Workshop and DC Shoes Riders; Josh Kalis, Rob Dyrdek, Dylan Rieder, Ryan Smith, Lindsey Robertson and Evan Smith were all on the front lines. The guys skated with the couple thousand locals that came out and signed autographs as well as snapped a bunch of photos all day long. The line to get an autograph from Rob Dyrdek, Dylan Rider and Josh Kalis was about a mile long and after 3 hours of signing the guys had to cut it off. We held four best trick contests and a huge product toss once the contests were over. One local in particular came to the event and dominated just about every best trick contest we held, Nick the Brick. Thanks to everyone who came out to the event and everyone at DC, AWS and everyone celebrated skateboarding and Go Skateboarding Day with us!
