Nike SB, Skate Mental, and you…

Everybody knows that Nike has one of the best skateboarding teams around with names like Eric Koston, Paul Rodriguez, Gino Iannucci, Theotis Beasley, and Lance Mountain. What some people might not know is that one of Nike’s original riders is Reese Forbes. Well, Reese Forbes also rides for one of the sickest companies out right now…Skate Mental. They have some of the best graphics that have ever been printed on a skateboard, like the Skate Mental Alien vs. Predator deck with E.T. and Michael Jackson, or the Matt Beach Mrs. T deck. So what do Nike and Skate Mental have in common besides Reese Forbes? They have come out with a Nike X Skate Mental line of Tee’s, Jackets, and Backpacks. Don’t sleep on it!! Scope them out NOW!

Daryl Angel – Blogs the Nike Euro Trip

Active Am, Skate Mental patient, and San Jose local, Daryl Angel’s first blog on ActiveRideShop.com

“So this past summer Nike decide to take a few of us on a full blown Euro trip. The trip consisted of myself, ”stunt wizard man” Justin Brock, good looking David Clark, and “the child” Grant Taylor. We skated quite a few places out there. We started our journey in Colonge, Germany, where I freshly got off the plane and went straight to skating… Talk about jetlag. I also forgot to mention, within the first few hours of skating, I decide to fall on my shoulder which caused it to get a minor separation. So being that I messed up my shoulder the first day, I was pretty bummed out. Luckily it healed up pretty quickly. I was back on the board in no time. I must also mention we rented a BMW and drove it on the Autobahn. Basically these are a few photos from my Euro Vacation. I’ll get some more up soon.” – Daryl Angel
