Adventure Time with Pam: NYC – Ohio

I had a great Time in NYC with the homies. I was supposed to get there for the famous Broadway Bomb but there was a mistake with my dates, this didn’t stopped me from having a great time around and skate all day, but most important, shoot photos and document what was happening around me. Thanks DBS for making it happen and to all the homies who got stoked on my visit and made sure i had a good time skateboarding and meeting the city In this first post i share some of the skate we had!

My first day around was with my good friend Keyla Denisse from Puerto Rico, we took the subway to meet up with some friends

Alex Tongue and other Orangatang riders going big!

Check out Daddies Board Shop team rider Alex Tongue in Big Wheels and Longboards!  He joins fellow Orangatang riders, including the much loved Patrick Switzer and Maxim Garant Rouseau, in an awesome run down the Italian Alps.  Aside from some amazing longboarding its awesome to see those other guys going down and drifting and sliding around everywhere on those gnarly big wheel tricycles.  All of the Orangatang riders really seem to favor those 80a 4 Presidents and In Heats.  Im curious to see if Orangatang will be using their new Euphorethane, thats featured in the new Balut’s, and implementing it in their other wheels.  I would love to have a set of 4 Presidents that I could get a little more life out of!

Sayshun Drop Dead Longboard Skateboard – IN STOCK!

The motivation behind the varian concave and varian drop is the board tells your feet where they need to be.

The front pocket is created by the varian drop, the aggressive progressive tub, and the angle of the varian concave.

The angel of the varian concave allows your heel full and complete contact.
In a tuck, the pocket created for the back foot again directs the foot to exactly where it needs to be.

Sayshun’s progressive tub is incorporated into the varian concave
The point of the varian concave and the progressive tub concave locks your back foot in better than a W ever could. But what does this all mean? Really you’re going to have to stand on the thing before you really get it.
