Step Your Pimp Game Up

This old man is an inspiration to us all.. We actually had a conversation with him he told us "keep your eyes on the prize and don't let the pussy rise". He got real philosophical and spoke that wisdom about cars, money, girls, weed, and skating. Brought a single tear to the eye. So let his pimptastic steez inspire your steez when you're going for a trick. We are.... out here

The World Is YOURS

The world is yours-- that's the saying for the week. Want something done, gotta make it happen- turn thoughts into reality. Before we had the tools, we were already on the same shit! Except no way to document the lifestyle. And now, we are just pursuing a vision we had.. the We Are The City movement.. documenting the lifestyle.. nation wide, but at the same time giving back to our local scene. Thats what its all about--
We use this same state of mind in the streets and when it comes to hitting these tricks.
Check out some of what went down this weekend --

Met up with Chris and Rico
at Career Academy
notice all the night shots.. its that time of the year again.. dammit

Rico - nose slide

Later me and Chris hit up them butta ledges and that bank spot

Chris Smith-- 5-0 to switch crooks

Fakie bigspin

Calling All Artists!

The homie Rico sent this over, this is something he is entering and will be displaying some of his work. If you too are an artists.. this is a good event to be a part of
Details from KHVT's website (below)

We have been offered the use of a local private gallery for a fundraiser! We are planning on having a 1 night showing with art for sale with a portion if not all of the sales going to the concrete fund! If you are an artist or know an artist interested in a space at this show please contact us at so we can send you an entry form! We will also have a small demo that night as well! This will be well publicized and an opportunity for all you artists to get some exposure! Obviously skate art would be nice but any art you wanna sell will be accepted. We are shooting for early November so contact us soon as space is limited. Thx B.

This is the application if you are looking to submit your work

Keeping It Moving...

Yeah, a lot of things are happening around this site. New montage for the site dropped last week, new graphics are up, and posts are hittin' the wall on the regular. That's great but never the less we can't stop and won't stop... Life doesn't stop and we are a part of life; so if you aren't moving, you aren't living (sometimes literally); and you best believe we're living our lives; if not "the" life. So stay tuned for what comes next...and like the title says keep it moving. I know I am...

Black Milk's new Album drops tomorrow (9/14/10). The beats are, Jay Dee (RIP) crazy...So if you didn't know now you know.

PS. Shout to the people that kicked it with us @ The Delmar Lounge On Saturday...Dope Night!


We want to say thanks for all of the positive feedback on the montage! We hope everyone enjoyed it- and shout out to everyone who has a trick in it. If we didn't get you in this time, we are currently filming for the next one - so be on the look out! Have your hammers and lines together!

We will be back actively posting later this week due to the recent montage release-

until then- if you have something you want to see posted send it over to

Get Tricks or Die Trying

Hope everyone had a good labor day weekend. We were out here getting some final tricks for the montage.. which will be up THIS WEEK! Word on the street is, that CityVision is pumping something out either Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.. Either way just be on the lookout cause its going to be good. We put in a lot of work these past few weeks and it definitely shows in the footage.
As far as this weekend goes, the homeboy from Chicago - Quest, was in town. We met this fool out in Frisco and clicked cause he was a Midwest head too. Also the homeboy Frankie was in the city! We all went super hard and got some good tricks.

Heres a few pics from the City Lighting banks..

Frankie Alexander-- Double flip

Chris Pettaway- Back Heel

Kicked it with the YG's too

Quest blasting an ollie out to the sidewalk

Ended up in the loop later that night..

Jared Owens -- fat ass pole jam!!

Quest snappin over the fire hydrant

The next day, we went to the fountains for a second. Frank ended up finding this mulch gap and decided to fs 180 over it. Shit was dope!

Ended up at shitside.. this fool hit a fat bank to bank ollie.. Didn't catch his name though .. think he was some dude

Frankie with a tre bomb

Later, hit up WASH-U.. had some hot college girl snap one of everybody

Oh, and then Frank schooled us on the stair game.. wait till you see the clip of this--siiiiiiiiiiick!

San Francisco Vol. 4 EMB

For those of you that don't know.. EMB was a legendary spot in SF.. so much went down there. Imagine our Kiener Plaza being torn down because of skating.. Anyway, Physically its still there.. they just took out the shit people used to shred and everything else was completely locals there kick it down the street at "the islands" which is still right off Embarcadero. You can read more about EMB here but it was definitely cool rolling through there.

Also check this video of some old EMB footage, this will give you a good idea of what went down there.. and why EMB was so important in paving the way in today's skating.
