SKATE San Francisco with Ben Gore

Magenta’s Ben Gore has a really sick episode in the RIDE Channel’s SKATE series skating around San Francisco for a day. He shares about his love for the city, having moved there from Florida, and how so many people in SF also moved there from elsewhere.

Follow along with Ben Gore and friends Carlos Young, Max Van Arnem, John Lindsay, Joe Staley, James Coleman, Nick Daley, Zach Chamberlain and more as they bomb hills, hit up one of Ben’s favorite eating spots (his favorite burger in SF), and visit iconic skate spots like 3 up 3 down, the SF library and the Federal Banks.

Some really rad skating from everyone and cool insights into the city from one of our favorite Floridian transplants.

The day finishes off at Magenta’s Hill Street Blues art show and if you didn’t know, Ben’s also an accomplished photographer, and you should definitely also check out his photography work here. Talented both on and off the board, check out the video below and go bomb some hills! – HK

Wanderlust: Escape from New York Tour with the TOA crew

We ain’t gonna lie, we’re big fans of the Theories of Atlantis brands and we always love to see what they put out. We all know how cold East Coast winters can be, except down south in Florida, hence the title of this little tour vid which served as a little escape for the TOA crew. This little 13 minute edit features a host of riders including Ben Gore, Jimmy Lannon, Kevin Coakley, Dustin Eggeling, Dane Brady, Brendan Carroll, Piro Sierra, Yonnie Cruz, James Coleman and Jimmy Mastrocola.
