Wheels are to skateboards what tasty beverages are to a well-balanced meal at your favorite fast-food joint. You can stick to a classic cola or you can get whacky and mix Orange Soda with Dr. Pepper only to find out that it tastes like something you’d force your little brother or sister to drink because […]
Caliber Truck Co.’s family gatherings seem to be a bit more exciting than most. The last family gathering I attended involved some serious Bunco sessions. Now, don’t get me wrong (it was awesome to see Grandma jumping up & down and to witness my uncle making baby noises) but I would much rather be skating […]

Releasing a new wheel seems to be a hit or miss as of late. Some wheels may be too reserved in their design, while others may be a bit too “forward thinking”. What steps might a company follow ensure that they’re going hit the nail on the head with their new release? By doing precisely […]
There’s something special about watching and re-watching skate videos from years ago. Styles shift and we find ourselves laughing at (or perhaps longing for and looking to recreate) what once was. Technology improves and we wonder why we didn’t think of this-or-that sooner. Visions of what skateboarding is somehow shift and align with “what’s right”, […]
Pushing. As skateboarders, we all do it. Some of us aren’t too fond of it (Can’t I just GO?), and others are super gung-ho and training like it’s the Tour de France. Push races — like the Golden Gate Park Push Race — come in to play in an interesting manner: The less-than-stoked individuals find […]

It has come to our attention that the Huffington Post, a liberal/progressive content aggregator, has taken an interest in the world of downhill skateboarding in […]

The Midwest Tour was the longest series of skateshop and campus visits Landyachtz has done yet. With help from clubs and crews along their route they were able to capture a ton of sick footage.
