Last Spring Ryan Sheckler launched the Be The Change project, aimed at bringing worthy causes into the spotlight. By using social media to spread the word, hundreds of people submitted plans to make a positive change in their surroundings.
Four causes were nominated and voted upon by you, and the winner was the Native American Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe. The Washington state tribe's plan to build a skatepark on their reservation for their youths received the most votes. Now we watch as the Sheckler Foundation partners with the S'Klallam community to make the plan a reality. Here is the first episode.
Etnies takes it to the streets of downtown Los Angeles with their latest video
promo, "DTLA," to prove that its Fall 2012 shoe and apparel collection makes the
Team riders Ryan Sheckler, Devine Calloway, Joso Rojo, and Aidan Campbell test out
all the gear and give it a good beat down.
Etnies continues to combine quality, good looks, and functionality with every
passing season. Their videos aren't so bad either.
But don't take my word for it, check out the cool video above with music by
Surferblood and decide for yourself.
It's good to be Louie Vito.
From being featured on Dancing with the Stars to hanging out with models and celebrities, this pro snowboarder knows how to live life to the fullest.
But what exactly is it like to live like Louie?
The fourth episode of Livin Louie shows what happens when you take pro snowboarder Louie Vito off the slopes and into straight into "Dragon Man's" gun range. Vito fires off M16s, AK47s, and even a couple of home-made flame throwers with his buddy, pro skater Ryan Sheckler. Check out a day in the life of these pros-- slightly out of their element.
T&C Surf Designs turned 40 and the boys from Plan B went to Hawaii to celebrate, skate, and cause a little bit of trouble. The boys included: P. Rod, Ryan Sheckler, PJ Ladd, Torey Pudwill, Pat Duffy, Colin McKay, Danny Way and even funny man Nick Swardson was in the mix.
In between skate demos and signings they found time for rock jumps into salt water pools, 3 wheeled scooter races, karaoke, and taking in all that beauty, that is Oahu.
Check out video below of all the shenanigans.
In exciting fashion Sean Malto beat Nyjah Huston and the rest of the field to win the 2011 Street League Championship and for his efforts he took home $200,000.
Malto made the most of his second chance after gaining entry into the championship due to an injury to Tommy Sandoval. Skating solidly and consistently throughout the contest was enough to edge Nyjah Huston by 1.9 points.
"I am thrilled about winning the 2011 street league championship. To be up against the top ten guys of the series and to win after my injury is just an amazing feeling," Malto said in a post contest interview.
Huston came up short of completing the dream season after winning the first three stops skating at a level higher than everyone else.
Despite the impending Hurricane, the pros took to the course in front of a packed arena a day earlier. Braving torrential rain, heavy winds and shut down transit and major freeways, thousands of loyal fans came out in full force.
Chris Cole was there in the end battling it out with Malto and Huston but was unable to land the big trick he was looking for when it counted most . He didn't go home empty handed as he won the Monster Best Trick with a 360 Flip 50-50 Grind down the Big Section Hubba earning himself a 9.6.
The second season of Street League featured several rule changes, increased prize purses, and the addition of a Championship event. The changes made the second season more exciting for the viewers than in season one. Looking forward to season three of Street League, we expect nothing less than another year of excitement.
