It seems the new Balut wheels from Orangatang are making a splash in more markets than just our own. This dude stopped by our shop today with 80a Orange Baluts on his candy painted orange wip and was all too eager to flip the switches and demonstrate how high this light wheel could pop. The crazy big cores rival the 20’s he used to push aesthetically and functionally. With less urethane to push through than The Durian and The Stimulus, the Low-tang beast machine gets quicker transitions into slides, allowing him to drift through urbania with ease and steeze.
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!
http://thisispushculture.com/ This is the link to one of the sweetest sites out there. Keeping y’all up to date on the coolest things happening in skateboarding and longboarding!
A while back we absentmindedly published some stuff that kinda bummed out the guys over at Push Culture. It was a huge mix up but we had no negative intentions behind everything. Now that things are clear we want to go out a little further and make sure that the people out there who dont know about Push Culture News get educated!

Chances are if you go out to races you’ve seen these guys around. You see their live feeds and coverage that they have up and literally they cover so many events! You could say that some blood, sweat, and tears have been put into making Push Culture what it is.
What sets them apart from all the other media, in our opinion? They do most of it themselves! Sure every now and then when a sick video is released by someone else they help spread the stoke and put it up on their site but so much of their content is gathered and created by them. Remember WAYYYY before anyone ever heard of the Original Freeride board? Push Culture met up with the dudes at original and did some testing on the prototypes. Afterwards they made a sick video to give all of us the lowdown on what to expect in the near future.
Thats why Push Culture is awesome… they dont just wait for the same old videos to come out to fuel their site… they go out and get the info themselves, and they always pick cool stuff to develop as content.
We’re sorry for the mix up guys but we got nothing but love for you and what you do! Keep on pushing!

Howdy Ho mates,
As you all may know here at daddies we made the Pups of Longboarding calendar last year and all the proceeds went to the oregon human society. Well this year we made volume 2! Half of the proceeds go to the oregon humane society and the other half of the proceeds are going to the childrens relief nursery!
children and pets need the most support out of anyone, they have no voice of their own and dont understand and know the world the way that adults do. If we arent there to help and support them then they have nowhere to turn to.
You guys all know Adam Colton from Loaded, Orangatang, Paris, and Longboard Larry. Adam is a pretty damn smart guy and he has a big heart. He agreed to give us a hand in earning some more money for charity by doing a sketch on one of the calendars and signing it. He thought it would only earn about $5.00… cause he is modest and humble… LETS PROVE HIM WRONG! START BIDDING GUYS! GET YOUR PARENTS BIDDING and GET YOUR FRIENDS BIDDING!
Help make a difference guys! Its not everyday that you get a chance to do something as cool yet simple as this!!!
