If you have a rad event coming up send us your info and we’ll do our best to spread the word.
Rider news/gossip: Mr. Troy Yardwaste has joined the Landyachtz team, and there’s a vid to peep too. In other Yardwaste news, there seems to have been some sort of finish line mixup involving he and Max Ballesteros at a recent race in France. . . It’s unclear as to what exactly happened, but last time we checked their Facebook pages they were fired-up with contentious comments and such. . . Also, many a homie got bricked at Central Mass 6: Khaleeq Alfred had his shin basehed, Levi Green may have broken his femur, Mike Ryan definitely jacked his toe, our editor Marcus Bandy took one to the camera and the face by William Royce‘s board during the Big Air event, and homegirl Neena from FL rocked her dome during the DH race. That said, all are healing and doing fine now, and it’s definitely par for the course as ya gotta pay to play in the skateboard game. Fact.
