The one and only Burnside Skatepark made it to 24, with much new development coming to the city of Portland, the future of the park was looking grim there for a second, but luckily the new high rise going in is cool with the park staying and being good neighbors. The park will still need more improvements over the next year including lights and permanent bathrooms. Huge thanks to everyone that volunteered with maintenance efforts this year and all the bands that killed it. See you again next year!

For most of the Jews in Israel, Yom Kippur is the most solemn religious fast of the Jewish year. There are many “Don’t” customs regarding this day such as – don’t eat, don’t turn on electricity… don’t drive, etc. For 24 hours you will not see a single car in many parts of the country. This very unique day transforms Israel into a huge playground for any kind of transportation without an engine – especially a skateboard. Just try to imagine a big metropolis without buses cars, trucks or trains. Huge spans of roadway and freeways, free of vehicular traffic, waiting to be skated upon.
Filmmaker Amit Schwachter captures some of these rare moments with his good friend and skater Tamuz Rachman and this short film is the result.
etnies and Plan B” />etnies and Plan B have had ties since ’97 and the brands collaborated on a new footwear collection that is dropping today to coincide with the upcoming Plan B video “TRUE.” Longtime allies, etnies and Plan B, have reunited to collaborate on a footwear collection. The collection coincides with the release of Plan B’s first full-length video since 1997, “TRUE.” The two brands have had ties since 1992 when Sal Barbier skated etnies Raps in Plan B’s legendary first video, “Questionable.”
Today, Ryan Sheckler leads the charge continuing the alliance between etnies and Plan B. The etnies x Plan B collaboration collection includes the styles that he uses and abuses regularly – the Marana, Marana E-Lite and the Scout all featuring STI Evolution® Foam. The Marana was designed and developed for Ryan to withstand the harsh demands of his skating, and the Marana E-Lite is the newest and most progressive style in the Marana bloodline. The lightweight, durable and high-impact rebound cushioning Scout is the supreme comfort shoe that these guys wear anytime they are off their boards.
