Staring down the barrel of a 15, Nyjah grinds a perfect backside smith. Locked and loaded.
In anticipation of “RISE & SHINE” the Nyjah Huston video, we are releasing a new clip, once a week until the video drops, so check back for more footage and information.
Recently, DC Shoes got together with The Berrics to release the “The Fix S” skate shoe. To launch the special edition collabo’, they brought in Evan Smith, who stars in this commercial, going where few have gone before…
Evan Smith, with an aptly named, smith stall on the vert wall.
Over the weekend, 12yr old vert phenom, Tom Schaar landed a 900º on the Mega Ramp at Woodward West, making him the youngest to do so, ever. Next to Tony Hawk, Sandro Dias, Giorgio Zattoni, and a select few, Tom joins The 900º Club, where the secret handshake is nothing short of performing the impossible… Congratulations Tom!
We all knew it was coming, but we didn’t know it’d be this good… Nyjah takes top honors at the most famous skatepark in the world, The Berrics, and is crowned the official Battle Commander with this video part.
On September 24th 2011, Element and Beachworks joined forces to present the ELEMENT EQUINOX FESTIVAL. Set in Element’s own Orange County backyard, the festival included an amateur contest, team demo, team signing and a bevy of booths to keep attendees psyched. Two amateur contests were held: thirteen and under and fourteen plus. A total of $1,000 was awarded to the winners, $700 of which made its way into the back pocket of 14+ winner Edgar Barrera.
In addition, a free trip to Element / Ymca Skate Camp was awarded to the winner of the thirteen and under contest, Vinny Villani.
As impressive as the 14+ contest and demo were, the young kids contest really brought the stoke. Seeing the young’uns with decks as big them go for glory brought smiles to the faces of even the most jaded among us.
While not watching the skate action, attendees tie-dyed t-shirts, got henna tattoos, played skateboard wheel plinko to win free Element gear and checked out an array of animals on display from Inside the Outdoors.
