A few months ago, Nate LaCoste, Max Taylor, and Will Blakley went to this place called California with a guy named Calvin Millar. While there, they decided to play skateboards on all kinds of stuff. Luckily, Calvin happens to be a videographer and was able to not only capture their playtime, but to piece it together on a computer and turn it into a movie. If any of this sounds like stuff you like, please click this link and find your happy place.


    Stay Stokes


    Hello! For the twelve kids that visit this site, we apologize for not making any recent updates.

    Okay, real quick, two things: ONE. Check out Tim’s footage from 2010 – 2014. If it doesn’t make you want to go skate then you need to go see your doctor, because your shithead meter is peaking way too high. Truth.

    TWO. More info coming soon.

    We have some new, new, new in the works, so don’t cry too hard right now.

    Later, snakers.


      Summer of Stoke


      This was going to be the cover of our summer 2012 catalog, but it never got printed. Guess who that little ripper is on the cover and win a swift slap to the buns. If you get the answer wrong, we’ll still totally slap your buns if you want. We’re cool like that.


        Friends With Roger


        Sometimes we send Zachary Blatt skateboards and sometimes he sends us photos and footage. Check out his new edit by clicking this link RIGHT HERE. Crust never dies. Photo: Kyle Anderson

        In other Roger-ness, if you’ve been watching the adidas Copa videos from Austin, you’ve no doubt seen some of the dudes all up in those jams. If not, here you go: ONETWOTHREE

        We have a bunch of new graphics coming out really soon. Which is cool since we haven’t made anything new in like a year. Sup Wit Dat?



          Playa Hazing


          Our newest dude Will Blakley has some truly splendid footage  in Jake Kuzyk’s new Civic Affair video. But don’t trust my word for it. Go watch the damn thing and quit all that playa hazing.


            Seen Enough To Eye You


            We’re currently working with Paul Schmitt on a new shape that’s inspired by an old shape. Because as they say: those who don’t know the past are doomed to only get stoked on the future. Or some shit like that.

            A couple of the Roger dudes were just in LA and SF riding their boards all over the walls and down stairs and crap like that. If you don’t believe us, that’s cool. We’re totally going to make an edit out of the footage they shot and make your face holes breathe it in, then we’ll see who the liar is, dude.

            Tim and Eric are going to be in Austin next week. Buy them a corn dog if you see them in the streets.


              It Takes Two (Again)


              It’s a well-known fact that the Roger dudes prefer the raw streets to the confines of an indoor park. Nevertheless, when called upon to shred the florescent-lighted, wooden-plyd arenas, the dudes most certainly abide. Here’s some video documentation of Max Taylor and Ryan Holloway performing a skateboarding demonstration in Katy, TX at the SK8 SHOP. Put that in your pizza roll and smoke it.


                It Takes Two


                Roger recently added a new dude to our team. His name is Will Blakley and here’s a brand-new video of him skating with his buddy Max Taylor. Big thanks to Calvin Millar for putting this video together for us. We get by with a little (a lot of) help from our friends.

                Totally forgot to post this the other day, but Nate LaCoste recently went to Tokyo. Don’t believe me? Proof for your face!

                And in cellar door news.

                Expect an indoor-skatepark edit to hit your dong soon, too. Trying to cover all our bases over here.


                  Backwards Glance


                  Mefford just sent me this photo of Max Taylor doing a switch frontside heelflip into this Krust Krustofferson bank spot.

                  Max is working on a shared part with our new flow bro Will Blakley. Should be done really soon, so don’t quit skateboarding just yet.


                    Smart Pants


                    Our friend Brandon has a Rip Clip up at The Skateboard Mag site right this very frickin’ second. If you don’t believe me, click this link. See, told you, smart pants.
