June 21st marked National Go Skateboarding Day, lots of sun and lots of fun. Active Ride Shop opened their new private park, The Active Park, to the public for one day only and Vans threw down a $500 best trick contest. SpeerCo tossed in a helpful heaping on $20 hammers to make things exciting! After many of failed shady attempts to sneek into the event, our boy Forest finally got in and managed to land a tre flip 50-50 on the big rail and a back 360 flip over the pyramid for the win! Skaters enjoyed the Red Bull Manny Mania street course, Vans free BBQ, tons of free drinks from Jarritos and Red Bull, fun vendor booths from Active Ride Shop, Ambiguous, Analog, Baker/Deathwish, JSLV, Crooks & Castles, Element, Heel Bruise, Huff, Jarritos, Kayo, LRG, Mighty Healthy, Rogue Status, Skatedogs, SpeerCo the ramp builders, Stussy, Supra, Krew, Syndrome Dist, Us Versus Them, Vans and XGames. The Active Park made possible by SpeerCo the ramp builders, Jarritos (the bombest Mexican soda around!) and Tec Color Craft (producers of amazing skate stickers since forever!).
Big thanks to the brands, the skaters and staff for making this amazing!! See ya next year!!

The new JSLV Denim is in stock now!
We just recently received the new JSLV Denim and it has quickly become one of our better selling jeans. All three of the styles are pretty rad. The “Worker Pant” is a good chino pant that is a little bit looser and also really good to skate in. The “Proper Denim” and the “Blunt Denim” are both made out of regular denim and have a slimmer fit. I personally like the “Proper Denim” in black… that’s my favorite out of the three pairs.
Check ’em out…

Here, Josh Priebe and Jayson Valencia give you a heads up into what JSLV is all about… With skaters like Kellen James and Nick Tucker, snowboarders like Chris Bradshaw and Lucas Magoon, and dudes like Warren G and Wu Tang backing them… it’s safe to say JSLV is gonna be hear a while!
