tom penny "hard times but good times".

you have to watch this flick! fukkin' awesome! best parts i've ever seen of tom penny pushin'.

tom penny. tp. the elusive, nomadic, soft spoken, humble one. if you don't know about tom penny, then like flip skateboards says, sorry, realy sorry! you just had to be there. tony hawk was once quoted saying: "if tom penny ever started skating vert full time, we all might as well retire".

i met tom in may 2011. in a crazy coincidence (or was it?) vincent alvarez was suppose to have come out with me to barcelona to film for the video but got hurt the week before and couldn't come. i had no one to film with until justin & jesse came out a couple weeks later. it was like it was all meant to be. i gave tom the temporary number i had and less than a week later he called me to go skate. the first day we went out to skate & film, tom said he just wanted to do this 360 shuv drop in on this red brick bank. he said if he landed it we were all gonna go have sangria on this dope yacht type boat parked in the bay. before we even got to the spot i showed him this quick wallride type spot. he liked it and we got the 360 flip fakie and the line with the wallie and the nollie flip. we headed to the drop in bank spot. couple of tries and he did the 360 shuv in! we went and had the sangria. tom was super hyped! we got done with sangria on the boat and we walk a couple steps and theres this banked ledge. tom says hold up i got something. does the backside tail and the backside tailslide revert. we walk across the street and theres a similar obstacle but you can do tricks into the bank. tom switch frontside flips into it like nothing! tom was super happy. the day was ending and we headed to macba to rest and chill with friends. after being there for about 20 minutes tom comes to me and says he got a line. i never saw a spot, let alone macba, where everyone sits down to let a skater skate. specially macba! theres usually at least 100 people there on a good day. but once tom started trying his line, everyone sat down. the place was quiet. the line is the switch crooks, switch flip, & switch pop shuv down the set thats in this part. after he landed that it was a wrap! tom couldn't believe the day had turned out the way it did and we called it after that for dinner and some damm lemons!

so salute to a real g who showed us how to flick properly and reminds us of what the goals of a true skateboarder is: to be a unique individual who uses the terrain available in his own creative way for the simple enjoyment a skateboard brings us. fuck the money. fuck the fame. just go have fun on a skateboard!

cheers to you tom! thank you for staying true to your roots, being down for the skate sauce movement, being a good friend, and keeping the spark of inspiration lit in all of us!

peace, love & happiness.

how to build a mini ramp with billy rohan.

this was originally released in 2010 on vice magazine's site.

check out these step-by-step instructions on how to build a mini ramp with pro skater billy rohan.

if you've got a bunch of pro-skateboarder friends and you're splurging on a giant birthday party for yourself, it goes without saying that you're going to need a half-pipe. that's why billy rohan, a nyc skateboarder, came by vice's 15th anniversary party two days early bearing lumber, power tools, and an entourage of eager skater guys and girls. from there it was a hurried flurry of plywood shavings and bandsaw screechings as billy walked us step-by-step through the building of a mini ramp that can service a couple thousand partygoers. think of this little how-to number as the this old ramp edition of epicly later'd.

how do you get a job in the skateboard industry?

michael giurato ©
illustration: michael giurato

let’s face it, if you have ever spent any significant amount of time on a skateboard, you have probably dreamt about working in “the industry” at one point or another. how could you not! you flip through the magazines and see these people touring the world, filming, skating, partying – you’d be an idiot if you said you wouldn’t want to do that for a living.

but how do you do it? there’s no guidebook or guaranteed way to get there. you can’t just go to grad school or college and get a major in it… so we figured we’d get in touch with a bunch of people that are successful in the industry and ask them for advice. remove the curtain and find out how they got started, what makes them tick and if it’s really as amazing as everyone likes to believe it is.

this october, skate shops all over the world will receive their shipments of the vans x metallica 20th anniversary half cab pro. if you aren't sure which pair i'm referring to, half cabs are the vans with the heavy duty canvas that just seems to last longer, the mid tops that offer the perfect amount of give and support, the padded tongue that has just the right amount of cushioning and not to mention the classic waffle sole. no surprise that they're the most popular shoe at the park.
