HOT LUNCH... Deck, Vinyl 7" and Full-Length LP

I had 3-4 solid sessions at various concrete round-walls around the Bay Area with Eric Shea before I found out he was the voice for the awesome band, HOT LUNCH.  Listen to some of their songs HERE... 

Stoked to have some HOT LUNCH goods with their full-length vinyl LP, 7" vinyl single and decks in the Mini Skate Shop.  The deck is a Zagger-ish shape with a nice little money-bump. Shred it...!

HOT LUNCH's vinyl 7" and their full-length vinyl LP are also available in the Mini Skate Shop.

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.
