adidas Skateboarding welcomes…
Portland, OR – adidas Skateboarding is proud to announce it’s newest member to the team- Silas Baxter Neal. This Eugene, Oregon native needs no introduction to the skate world. His ability to shred anything in his path with smooth style and pure confidence made him an easy choice to add to the team.
Currently residing in Santa Rosa, California, Silas turned pro for Habitat last year and confirmed that he deserved the honor right out of the gates with insane footage for his Inhabitants video part. He is Transworld’s 2007 Rookie of the Year, and was the subject of an 18-page interview in Thrasher. As if those accolades aren’t impressive enough on their own, check his recent parts in Seasons 4 and the Toebock video. He has recently been featured on the covers of Slap, Transworld and Thrasher’s Photo Issue and received editorial coverage and interviews in Skateboarder and Thrasher’s Am Issue… all within the past year.
Check out www.adidasskateboarding.com to see brand new footage of Silas since lacing up with the 3-Stripes. This Rookie of the Year, is definitely worth keeping an eye on. Welcome to the team Silas!

It's been a long time waiting and after many sleepless nights and longings for what could and would be, the new season of Patrick O'Dell's Epicly Later'd show has begun. To start things off, the show premiered early this morning with the first installment of the Gino Iannucci episode. In it Gino gives a tour of his old stomping grounds around his hometown of Long Island. Man, I wish they gave you all of these things at once. What a g'damned tease. Whatever. Such a simple, yet effective tool of recruitment. Amazing, really. Can't wait for the rest of these things.
