Heel Bruise x Stussy Under the Radar

This past Monday night, two of our brand partners- Stussy, and Heel Bruise came together in Las Vegas to create a photo exhibition titled- “Under the radar”. This show featured works by Ray Barbee, Robbie Jeffers, Curtis Buchanan, and Devin Briggs. I had the pleasure of attending this event, and I can honestly say it exceeded my expectations. The photos in the show were not only eye pleasing, they also had strong skateboard nostalgia presence, as there were classic photos of- Andy Roy, Jason Dill, and Richard Mulder. The Beer and rum was flowing, and there were good homies everywhere you looked , which made for an all around good time.

Thanks to Stussy and Heel Bruise for giving us the chance to attend such an amazing event.

Check Out The Chrome Ball Incident


Check out The Chrome Ball Incident‘s latest interview with “the Chief” himself Jamie Thomas. It takes us through different stages of Jamie’s career and is a must read if you’re a fan. Chrome Ball does a super rad job at archiving old skate ads, videos, quotes (etc) of many of our favorite skaters. I don’t care how big a skate fan you are, you’ll always learn a thing or two from the interviews. If you want to get all nostalgic or just kill some time and learn a little more about a skateboarding, bookmark it, I did!

Introducing Heel Bruise


Heel Bruise is a fairly new company lead by skateboarder Richard Mulder and artist Thomas Yu. Their clean designs are driven by intelligent graphics combined with classic skateboarding roots & overtones. You’ll often see them collaborating with such personalities as Lance Mountain, Poets, even Eric Dressen! Currently their line consists of t-shirts, hats & stickers (now available here at Active) but they will soon be doing sweatshirts, socks, jackets and more, so be on the look out…  Heel Bruise is Breaking Through!


Recently, Heel Bruise invited us down to their headquarters for some tasty bacon wrapped street dogs (Vic hooked it up!) and gave us a little Heel Bruise 101. Check out our Heel Bruise Industry Profile:
