George Rocha and Iris Skateboards

George Rocha is Iris Skateboards and he recently made two completes for the Mini Skate Shop with the, "Ripride" and the "Lil' Rhody." Check them out and support a true DIY craftsman.  Also below are links to WIRED and SFJAZZ as both have written about George and his ridable-creations.  The WIRED article has a video on their page so be sure to watch and see more of what George is about. 

The Lil' Rhody above and the Ripride below... 

Above, WIRED Magazine's video and article about George Rocha and Iris Skateboards.  

Below, Blue Note pianist, Jason Moran with an Iris Skateboard in-hand.  George built the ramp for the SFJAZZ show with Moran, who's a skateboarder and normally kills it with a piano in-hand.  I've seen him play at Yoshi's before and he's amazing... 

Jef Hartsel's Slappy Prescription By Tobin Yelland

Tobin Yelland asked Jef Hartsel to go out and film a slappy session between the two of them and made this little film called, "Attacking The Lip." If you don't get stoked to go and make your own marks on a curb today after watching this, I don't know why you're here on a skateboarding website.  So GOOD and Mahalo's to both Hartsel and Tobin. 


Jordan Viray's Vintage Backpack Collection

My friend, Jordan Viray was a big supporter when I started Equal Dist (and the 3131 space) along with the Solitary Arts.  He's always had a good eye with everything and has been in the design world for some time... Recently, he's amassed a collection of vintage backpacks which are being shown at Pilgrim in New York. Check it out and find out more from his interview at The Scout.  

Environments, A Photography Exhibit By Andrew Paynter

Andrew Paynter has an opening this coming Saturday, May 18th, 2013 in Malibu, California at Canvas from 1-5pm.  


My Hawaiian Braddah's came to visit last week and I'm so appreciative as I haven't seen them together since we were all gathered in LA for our brother Kenny... Both are huge influences for me in skateboarding and life and I can't thank them enough for their consistent and genuine support over the years.

Mahalo and Shaka's all-around! See you guys soon! 

Zarosh Eggleston's Broken Heart and Platipus Pool Decks in the Mini Skate Shop

I'm stoked to have Zarosh Eggleston's Death Skateboards Pro-Model, "Broken Heart" in a pool size/shape along with his Platipus, "Nuclear Boobs" deck.  Platipus is Zarosh's board-screening shop that finances his DIY creation, Cachagua Land project.  100% Skateboarder.

Zarosh designed this board at 32.875" x 9" for both decks along with the artwork for the Platipus model and for the first time, a colored red heart for his, "Broken Heart" graphic with artwork originating from a linoleum block print by Chris Bourke.  

..."this is the first time that I've done a custom shape for Platipus, and I'm especially stoked to have such a functional shape." - Zarosh

You can find both decks, ready to ship for $60 (price includes shipping in US), in the Mini Skate Shop.  Worldwide shipping is always available too. Thank you!

Flyin' the Flannel...! or what Bob might say..."!@^%!&*"

I'm very proud to work with Anthony Masters and his family at Taylor Stitch for the Bob Lake Collection.  Today marks the first launch of Bob's flannel-lined project jacket (perfect for San Francisco and other climates which require something in-between a coat and a shirt) and an accompanying set of 13 ounce flannel-lined jeans. Support the handmade and those that have a passion for learning and creating quality products with quality people. 

Mahalo guys for making this happen to one of the best skateboaders, on and off the board...
