Eddie Wall in the Studio

Active Pro Snowboarder moonlights as a singer/songwriter. Here at Active, we love Eddie and his amazing voice! We jumped at the chance of shooting Mr. Wall doing one of his originals in an undisclosed studio in Southern California. It didnt hurt that he brought model and GF Mariana Saori Renteria along either. This is the first of many Active Team Rider Films. Enjoys my friends!

RVCA and Active Ride Shop team up for this second edition of “Tranny Wars”. It’s a gender bender themed mini ramp contest at the RVCA HQ featuring teams from Active’s 21 SoCal locations.

Brea took home the coveted Barbie Doll trophy, with Temecula and the LBC squad nipping at their heels. A swell time indeed! Thanks to RVCA for all their support!  See you again next year!!

Frijoles Blancos Films is a video journal by Active’s TM Corey Cady (aka Frijoles Blancos) or “The White Beans”. He’s a skateboarding luchador who enjoys cute little things! At times he is a “Rudos”, but for the most part, he likes to consider himself a “Tecnicos”. He wears his heroes masks of old and often eats a ton of protein to keep his girlish light heavy weight frame intact! His inspirations are Woody Allen Films, Arnold (70’s), Leigh Bowery, Tommy Guerrero, Antony & the Johnsons, chicken breasts and Tamarindo Jarritos! Frijoles Blancos’ goal is to one day be worthy to dawn his own mask and not to be called, “Nacho” everywhere he goes… One day!!

Red Bull Manny Mania Am Series 2009

 Red Bull threw down $25,000 for an invite only Am manual contest. Blancos was stoked to be hosting along with Casey from Fuel’s Capt N and Casey Show. The top TM’s in the industry drew the names, so we’re looking at the best up and coming skaters in the world and the competition was vicious.

 Bryant Chapo cam up victorious and walked away with 5 G’s! Del the Funky Homosapien and Bookoo 1 got down on the MC tip for the beautiful Long Beach crowd. Best part was Joey Brezinski playing the roll of referee, calling kids out on toe drags and lack luster performances. He spit out some timeless classics. Hats off to Greenberg @ Red Bull for putting on an amazing contest!
