Nora has an eye for quality. That’s why she hand-selected skater/architect/holistic fine artist Alexis Sablone to design a new capsule collection for NHS that includes custom Krux Trucks, a sticky sweet slab of Mob Grip, and she even squeezed some of those creative juices on a ripe set of OJs.

The original four headed for the semi-finals were Christiana Means, Sammaria Brevard, Lacey Baker and Candy Jacobs. Sadly Portland’s hometown hero, Christiana, had to forfeit her spot because of an Olympic team commitment in the Philippines.

Chariot races and primitive versions of discus and other track and field events were celebrated with excessive revelry, alongside ritual sacrifices of those with less agility.
