Poppy Starr Olsen; Smoother than a Possum’s Pouch

Most of the time when I need to escape from the world I find myself drawing, animating or playing in the ocean. 

Healthy Combi-tition

A great moment was when last year's champ Nicole Hause rolled in, fashionably late to the party because she didn't have to qualify. She was rocking rad checkered party pants that were a huge hit, and was just blasting gigantic airs. Fucking classy shit. She was doing just what last year's champ should; showcasing her skill for the crowd. Not necessarily skating to win but to dazzle, and dazzle she did.


It’s time once again for skateboarding’s bowl troll elite to gather at the legendary Combi pool in Orange County for the yearly shredder showdown, Vans Girls Combi Pool Classic.

Instead of skating the course the “traditional” way at Slam, at one point I remember her ollieing off the deck of one of the ramps, like 8 feet to flat. I had never seen an American Girl Doll skate like that!

Nike SB & NBA Caught on Kiss Cam!

SB redesigned some iconic silhouettes into items perfect for skating ledges by day and a Kiss-Cameo by night. With understated swaggitry, the line is the antithesis of a flashy Jimmy Butler arena arrival outfit.

Marisa Dal Santo “Strange World”

Marisa Dal Santo’s style is undeniable. And she fucking rips. In a time when althleasure is becoming commonplace in women’s skateboarding, we wistfully reminisce her dope look and ...
