Carlsbad, California

The Carlsbad Gap, with it’s many cracks and uphill landing,¬† is a legendary spot. Carlsbad High School has been a stomping ground for pro’s since 1992 when it first appeared in videos. Kris Markovich was the first to step to the gap with a flip trick, beginning the 20 year annihilation. Since then, pros like Jeremy Wray, Tom Penny, Chris Cole, Andrew Reynolds, and countless others have made their mark with every trick imaginable. It was only fitting that Markovich would be the last to ollie the gap on February 23rd, 2012, when the spot was completely demolished. Enjoy this mix of every trick to go down at Carlsbad.

Go Skateboarding Day 2015 – West Los Angeles Courthouse

Go Skateboarding Day (aka GSD) falls on 21st June and coincides with the longest day in the northern hemisphere. In the tradition of previous GSDs, Nike SB organized an event at the West Los Angeles Courthouse to coincide with the unveiling of the newly rebuilt courthouse fountain. First of, the very existence of the courthouse legal skate spot is due to the tireless efforts of Alec Beck and Aaron Snyder. So if you ever run into these guys, you owe them a HUGE high five!! They’ve both been instrumental in persuading the city that this OG spot should be liberated as a legal skate spot as well as working a lot behind the scenes to keep the spot clean and presentable, so that we can continue to skate there. Thank you guys!


As part of this year’s Go Skateboarding Day 2015 festivities, the courthouse ledges were also given a new coat of red paint to mark the occasion, and you can bet that scores turned out to the event. Of course, the event was graced by the skating of Eric Koston, Shane O‚ÄôNeill, Blake Carpenter, Nick Boserio, Carlos Ribeiro, Sean Malto and many more (including winners of the Nike SB app “Best Day Ever contest”). Starting at 3pm, participants checked in to receive their event t-shirts and wristbands before a best trick contest went down on the courthouse Stage, the courthouse ledges, and the 4 stair (4 up 4 down). Needless to say, it was total chaos but with some heavy tricks going down.




Antonio Evan was in the (Court)house!!!



Pat Cannon (in blue) with a 50-50 treflip out in the ledge best trick contest.




Alexander Loren with a nollie flip off the stage in the stage best trick contest.


The highlight of the day really of course belonged to the newly rebuilt courthouse fountain 2.0, with an update of banked inside walls, angled iron on the edges and recessed into the ground so that the exterior outside walls are a little lower than the original fountain. Definitely a fun addition to an already amazing spot.


Eric Koston at the inauguration of the new fountain.


Of course Eric Koston got to properly inaugurate the new courthouse feature with a backside flip into the fountain as the first trick. The Nike SB team then proceeded to put on a little demo with a loop line from the fountain, by the inside ledges, to the courthouse stage and back into the fountain. Carlos Ribeiro was a definite standout at the demo with a huge popped nollie front heel into the fountain. Another standout was Yuri Facchini with a massive fakie flip into the fountain. Shane O’Neill of course landed everything with ease and even peppered each of his lines with a couple of flatground tricks in the fountain between tricks into and out of the fountain. And of course, courthouse OG Eric Koston also nailed a pretty sweet switch heel into the fountain showing the young bucks that you can be more than 20 years deep in your pro career and still put it down. Once the demo ended at 6.30pm, it was¬† a free for all for all present to get a little session in the fountain. Lots of fun was had by all, and this new addition to the courthouse marks another new page in courthouse skateboarding history. Get there and skate this amazing feature already!! If you haven’t already, you should really check out Trilogy for some of the sickest Courthouse footage from back in the day. By the way, Manolo (of Manolo’s tapes) will also be putting out a Courthouse video later this year, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

And special shout out goes to #StonerLoc Pat Cannon (aka sk8erpat) for killing it in the best trick contest. He landed a backside 50-50 treflip out on the ledge a total of 3 times but didn’t get any love from the judges! C’mon guys!?! Watch out for this kid, he rips! – HK








History Clip, Spot

History Clip – Wallenberg, San Francisco

Last update:

Wallenberg. The spot that needs no introduction. When you think of the lyrics to the song “I left my heart in San Francisco”, you might want to add “and left a whole lot of blood, sweat, tears and some skin at Wallenburg.” This legendary four block has been a fixture in skateboarding for years. And at 22 feet 6 inches long, is the epitome of intimidating. The Gonz really opened our minds to what’s possible when he ollied it back in 1991. And with change being the only constant, more and more took up the gauntlet and tried something down the big, long 4 block.

Wallenberg Andrew Reynolds 1

With the floodgates opened by Gonz’s ollie, we saw skateboarding’s ABD list extended in increasingly quick succession with Diego Bucchieri’s backside 180, Frank Gerwer’s kickflip, Danny Gonzalez’s kickflip melon and more. We’ve compiled a list of ABDs below and you can peep our video compilation of those very tricks above. It’s 2015, and as “Shane Goes”, Wallenberg has now been nollie back heeled. Gotta love skateboarding’s progression!

Consider the following skateboarding’s roll of honor:

– Video Days (1991): ollie by Mark Gonzales
– backside 180 by Diego Bucchieri
– 411: kickflip by Frank Gerwer
– Transworld’s “The Reason” (1999): kickflip melon by Danny Gonzalez

Streets Is Talkin’: Shane Goes

In this installment of Streets is Talkin’, we showcase none other than Australian powerhouse Shane O’Neill’s new street part “Shane Goes” by Skate Mental and Thrasher Magazine.

Shane Goes 1 Shane did what at Wallenberg? Wait, is that VX?

Skate Mental’s Shane O’Neill has been on a tear for the past 5 years, putting out a non-stop barrage of NBDs that make it seem like his skateboarding is perpetually on video game mode. If you think you’ve seen it all, be prepared to be blown away even more by this part.

Shane Oneill 1Without giving too much away, he opens the video with a heavy NBD at Wallenberg(the 9 club!). Has a switch flip backlip on a rail, plus a crooked grind nollie flip late flip out on a rail. Oh and he so casually bigspin backlips the Sylmar rail and switch flips a triple set in the rain.

We also dig the choice of Beach House as the soundtrack. And we think we might have broken the rewind button on our comp!! Filmed and edited by James James. Go watch this now!!

Shane rides for Skate Mental, Thunder Trucks, Grizzly Grip, Spitfire Wheels, FKD Bearings, Nike SB, Fourstar Clothing, Monster, Diamond
