If you haven’t heard the news yet… read more below of a couple things I gathered from the internet about this. Farewell, Fallen Footwear.
The Fallen team is out on a tour as we speak. They stopped by the Brea & Riverside shops before heading up north. Jamie Thomas played S.K.A.T.E. with anyone daring to. Appearances by Brian Hansen, Dane Burman, Jon Dickson, Tony Cervantes, Chris Troy, & great times!
Here is the Video & Photo recap from the stops at Active San Diego (mission valley), Active Escondido, & Active Temecula. Hope everybody had a blast shoving donuts down their windpipes, chugging down gallons of milk, playing s.k.a.t.e. with the Fallen team, & watching Road Less Traveled on the big screen. Big thanks to everyone who came out to support, also special thanks to Brian Hansen, Jon Dickson, Tommy Sandoval, Dane Burman, Tony Cervantes, & Jamie Thomas!
The Chief, Jamie Thomas has always been on top of his game, his Fallen video part shows how much hard work he has put in filming for the video. Feast your eyes on some classic Jamie Thomas footage!
So here is the latest ‘Hellaclips Exclusive’ video part. We have the pleasure of hosting the gnarly skating of Jamie Thomas in the Fallen footwear video “Road Less Traveled”.
It is recut by no other than Mike Gilbert. Enjoy the new edit.

If you know Billy Marks, then you know he’s a gambling man. That’s actually how we became friends. We both play a lot of cards… and neither of us can resist the chance to win someone else’s hard earned money. Or lose our own… Anyways, I recently met up with Billy at a bowling alley by his house to see what he’s been up to. Maybe talk about getting on LRG, Street League, the Toy Machine demo and stuff like that…
I’m not sure how much it is to rent shoes and bowl a few games, maybe $20 bucks a person… but for some reason this little trip cost me almost $400 bucks!!
Next time, I’m making Active pay for it!
If you live in, or anywhere near Norco, be sure and join Billy and the whole damn Toy Machine team at Active for the 3rd Annual Toy Machine Halloween demo!! Sunday Oct. 31st at 2 pm.
So, I was lurking around the Thrasher website (because I got nothing better to do…) and I saw this post about the Vans Downtown Showdown that’s coming up. Shit! I totally forgot that’s coming up in a week!! Check out the video from last years event and get ready for some action on October 2nd at the Paramount Studios back lot…
