SLAP 20 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! PRINT ISSUE. They wanted to do something big to close out our 20th year, and what could be better than one more print issue? While SLAP?s online presence is ever growing, they appreciate the literariness, authenticity, and nostalgia that doesn’t translate as comfortably to the web, and SLAP wanted to do it again for this special occasion. The super limited ad-free issue celebrates SLAP’s history with conversations and contributions from old mainstays like Scott Bourne and Jeremy Fish, as well as the current state of skateboarding with interviews, articles, and LOTS of photos featuring our favorite skaters, artists, and photographers, including Jake Johnson, Ben Gore, Michael Sieben, and many more!
Purdy Lounge, 1811 Purdy Ave. Miami Beach, Fla. Make sure to p/u the SLAP 20th Anniversary Issue, as well as a limited Jai Tanju print of John Cardiel.

It’s like Future Primitive in NYC 2012. Vans Bowl-A-Rama is the worlds biggest Skateboard Bowl comp and it’s my backyard. The craze started last week and it’s been a who’s who of my favorite skateboarders. But last night was the icing on the Shoe! The Vans Half Cab Shoe! While celebrating 20 years of existence for this monumental skateboard shoe we rocked out to “General Fucking Principle” w/ sir Alva, “Drvnk Injvns” and “Agent Orange” w/ special man of the night, Steve Caballero on Guitar!
Thank you House of Vans and all the Vans kids for throwing a dope party.
See you all at Chelsea Pier’s tomorrow.

MIA Skate Shop hosted “The Blackout Photo Show” sponsored by OTW Vans during Art Basel. This is just what I needed after walking Art Basel’s extensive and overwhelming to say the least art show. Ako and Atiba Jefferson had their photo show in downtown South Beach Miami this past Saturday Night at the world famous MIA Skate Shop. Photos of Tony Alva, John Cardiel and recent trip down to Jamaica were displayed in the MIA Skate Shop that was converted into a dope Gallery fully equiped with plenty of beer and kick ass music by the Jefferson Duo. Great hanging with MIA’s Crew Chris, Andre, Joel Meinholz, Pres Rodriguez, Rambo, Ryan Dewitt, Amy Gunther, IO, Jason Dill, Mike Malbon, Kevin Kellett, Jon Newport and Yelawolf.
Check out my photo’s from the night here.

House of Vans opening party in Brooklyn NY was insane! So insane it took me 3 weeks to get this one up on RadCollector. Vans has sunk there teeth in the Heart of NYC building a state of the art skateboard facility and awesome music venue. Packed with tons of NYC familiar faces and Vans skaters and employees made this event one of the best Skateboard gigs I have been to in a while. Oh, and Public Enemy killed it for the 1000 plus crowd. Thank you VANS. Click Read more for tons of pictures!
