Max Schaaf sits down with Real Skateboards’ founders Tommy Guerrero and Jim Thiebaud to talk about getting sponsored, his first tour, his name misspelling, peeing in the van, balding, Gonz’s motorcycle ollie, getting kissed by Salman and much more.
Part 2 and Part 3 go live tomorrow and Friday this week.
This is the real deal people – it’s the result of Real Skateboards setting out with no video plans in mind other than skating with the crew and having fun…17 minutes of skateboarding, Through and Through.
In a continued effort to support Rob Pontes and his family through his treatment for ALS. Real Skateboards and East Coast shops are hosting the 2nd Roll For Rob Skate Benefit this Saturday, August 15th in Northampton, MA from noon to 7PM at the Northampton skatepark.
Come out and skate with Justin Brock, Jake Ruiz and many more to help a fellow skater in need. There will be a crash up derby, prizes, giveaways and a demo.

Deluxe Distribution launched The Build Project this week with REAL, Antihero, Krooked, Spitfire, Thunder and Venture brands as a worldwide fundraising effort with 250+ skate shops and local DIY crews to help raise money to build and repair DIY skate spots in their areas.
Starting this week, 250+ Build Project fundraising buckets will begin shipping to skate shops in weekly deliveries of 50 buckets at a time. Inside each Build Project bucket will be $50 cash from Deluxe to help start the fundraising efforts, along with ‘I Donated’ stickers for anyone who donates towards the effort. This is NOT a contest. No one is looking to blow out any spots or to encroach on any existing efforts.
The world is yours…we look forward to seeing what skateboarders do with it.
