Legendary Birdhouse Pro and the man behind Willy's Workshop, Willy Santos, may be lying low as of the last few years, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been making power moves. It's just been announced that Willy is the newest pro rider for Satori Movement.
World Industries just added a new amateur to their already impressive and ever growing roster. Big guy and unsuspecting flip technician, Andrew Cannon is officially riding for World. Mighty Healthy, the lifestyle, clothing brand out of New York, looks be be delving directly into the skate arena. Some guy I never heard of, named, George Jadelrab is on the Mighty Healthy team.

Foundation Visits Active
If you thought that signings and demos were designated just for the summertime, you're sadly mistaken my hombre. These events are alive and breathing well, with the organizational help of Active Ride Shop. On Sunday October 12th, Foundation Skateboards will be cruising by two Active locations in order to bring their handpicked talent straight to the adoring fans. The first demo and signing will happen at 1pm at Active Orange. The second will happen at 4pm at Active Chino. In attendance will be Corey Duffell, The Nuge, Gareth Stehr, Sierra Fellers, David Reyes, Alex G, Abdias Rivera and the teams newest pro, Angel Ramirez. And for extra incentive to get your ass out for the day, Active will be selling Foundation decks for only $34.99 (Only on October 12th and only at event locations of course, silly one).
If you're a fan of Rob Dyrdek, you're gonna want to check out his one-on-one drinking sesh with Johnny Knoxville over at Jackassworld.com. Watch on as Mr. Knoxville probes Rob about the demise of Rob & Big, meeting Jeff Tremaine for the first time and peeing the bed. Parental guidance is suggested, kids.
Remember that dude named Moose who backside 360'ed down that more than healthy set of steps at Thrasher's recent "Bust or Bail" contest? Well the dude is back and apparently he filmed all of this footage only an hour after the contest had wrapped. Impressive, Mr. Moose. Very impressive.
Strange Notes just unleased a "Movin' Up" part from some dude I never heard of, who goes by the name of Mikey Curtis. Whoever this bastid is, he's got some chops.
Fallen Visits A Couple Active's
Seen Ride The Sky yet? Me neither, but I heard Chris Cole's got the last part and sh*t is bananas. Instead of waiting around to see the video like me, go check the Fallen team at Active Mission Valley and Active Escondido on October 19th. I'm sure most, if not all of the Fallen team will be on hand to sign whatever it is you put before them, even if that includes product not endorsed by any of the Fallen riders. They'll most likely understand.
Given Skateboards am, Danny Scher has been one of my favorite underground rippers for a long time now. The kid straight up, rips. Here's a short but sweet video that's just been posted over at The SkateboardMag
