Zach Boston getting sideways in the boonies! Rich people boonies.
On sunday I went out with some of our new Daddies Ambassadors. They took me to a few spots I had never been to and it was actually pretty sick. Pretty gnarly though. The hills we hit up were steep, fast, and buttery smooth.

Richard Topete - Sliding away
Richard Topete - Toeside steez.
Richard and I wore the same jeans that day. It was pretty cool haha
Richard was killing it! Showed up a little late and just came in on fire.
Zach Boston - Coleman FTW
Zach's board ran away from him... luckily it was a rayne and took the bad curb blast very well!
Eric getting wild with an Indy/tuck knee slide
Richard Topete Toeside into the woods
Mid way through we had a dork around session
SO Zach Ollied off this little ledge on his Rayne Vandal into a hill bomb

Then there was a kitty session with one of the nicest kitties ever.
The Landyachtz EH TEAM and DADDIES BOARD SHOP rider Katie Neilson is on the road doing an East Coast Tour of college campus’s between New York and Florida, making stops everywhere including Chapel Hill, North Carolina where there were sightings of little rippers in Orange all day. In a contest where style is key, its no suprise that the daddies rider went home with best trick for a double grabbed stalefish with an early grab out at the end.
Written by the goddess Skatie Katie herself! Thanks Ms. Neilson!
Straight up getting buck on some slides!
Fancy slide Jimmy Jam! These dudes look good, but not as good at DBS Team rider Katie Neilson! OWWWWW!
Thanks for the photos Katie!

Hey there everyone… check out Shop employee Spencer Morgan Knuttila scooting around on his Penny Nickel! These things are insanely fun! It is 27 inches long, 7.5 inches wide, comes with 4 inch trucks and super smooth 59mm 78a wheels. These things are perfect for cruising around with friends, going to the store, chillin’ in a park, or just all around doing your thang! The Penny Nickel is just big enough to pull off some fun tricks and handle a bit bigger hills! You won’t regret picking one of these puppies up!
Check out some of the photos from Spencer’s Instagram of him playing around on his Penny Nickel! It is a retro type board so we figured retro type images would suit it best!
So there is this weird girl band sensation in Japan, there is still a boy band one too but this group in particular kind of took it to another level. Their name is AKB48 and there are 48 members of the group. These are just some of the main and more popular ones. Funny thing is all the girls in the group are around the age or 13 or 14, with the exception of a few “leaders” who are a bit older… and by older I only mean “of age,” so they are still only like 18 or so. These ones up here are some of the “leaders.”
Im surprised that longboarding hasn’t blown up a bit more over there, considering all the hills. I lived over there for quite a while and I got my brother in-law doing some downhill. Stay posted to the blog guys cause I am heading back pretty soon for a trip. I will be posting all sorts of sick photos!
I doubt I will be running into AKB 48 with all their skate gear but if I do I will be sure to get some more photos for all your viewing pleasure.
Wanna know another funny thing? My older brother in-law has been to one of these girls concerts before. But thats really not surprising because the majority of their fan base is guys from the ages of 18 – 25 or so, I wonder why???
