New Abec 11 Retro Erniez
We are stoked to announce our new wheel for the 2014 season! The all new Retro Erniez, poured from our new Amber thane, fill the gap between the Bertz and Amber Flashbacks. At 65mm, 42mm, and a contact patch of a mere 33mm, the new Retro Erniez are easy to initiate into all sorts of slides. Unlike the Berts and Flashbacks, the Retro Erniez feature a round outer lip and a chamfered inside lip to reduce the chance of unexpected hook ups. With the sweet track record of the Bertz and Amber Flashbacks, the Retro Erniez definitely have our attention. These are ideal for freeride.
TSG Develops New Full Face Helmet: PASS Helmets
The Swiss Protection Gear brand TSG and triple World Champion in Downhill Skateboarding and product designer Martin Siegrist have teamed up to develop new Safety Gear specifically for Downhill Skateboarders.
Behind every skate graphic and every pro model, there’s an inside story. In the late ’80s, the X-Team Rider was introduced based on nothing more than rebellion – a rebellion against the establishment (and let’s leave it at that).
Shanghai Tunnel Party
For a few months due to road works there has been a closed road tunnel that was full of garbage, broken glass and human feces. We decided to clean it up and have a skate jam.
The first Downhill Tunel Competition – June 20th 2013
This will now be an annual event on June 20th in different areas of Tijuana. We hope it inspires the younger generation. There were five categories: Downhill, Freeride, Hippie Jump, Slalom, and the fifth category went to the Worst Fall. It was a day full of talent with lots of participants!
