If you were to take the brain of a skateboarding, paraphernalia-hoarding, art-collecting wild man and packed it into a building and a couple of warehouses, you would pretty much get what High Speed Inc. is. This place is a fifteen-year-old skateboarder's wet dream. In fact, it is a skateboarding twenty-seven-year-old's wet dream.
At the entrance, you're greeted by an Obama cutout, two pinball machines and some welded shell for street luging. It's so covered in history and awesome clutter that you don't know where to turn, what to take a picture of, or what not to touch. It's like a museum of skate history, with stacks and stacks of back issues of Thrashers, Slaps and Juxtapoz. Rumor has it, there was a brief period of porno publishing, which quickly dwindled.
Slap, the stellar publication that just released the last paper issue before going web, operates from the downstairs, which connects to the garage where the famous Argentinian Fausto Vitello (RIP) still houses a couple of his hot rods. In the back, the magic happens. The sexy young ladies of Hubba Wheels have a mall-style photo room in the back.

High Speed spans a whole section of the warehouse district in San Francisco. The warehouse of Thrasher gear and mags is chaulk full of just as much skate history and hilarious clutter.—Joshua Brooks

Rasa Libre & Deluxe Go Live With New Online Catalogs
It seems like it's that time of the year. Companies are gearing up for the holidays and in the process, dropping their freshest product for skate consumption. Rasa Libre, the brand headed by Matt Field, was killed by Deluxe a few years back and has since experienced a second coming. They've just dropped their newest online book of goods and from the looks of things, they haven't lost a step, or yoga move...har har! Lame. Anyway, they've coined this one, their "Cosmic Catalog" and the visually pleasant layout features all kinds of goodies, including pro boards from Mr. Field, Kenny Reed, Mike Daher, Joel Meinholz and of course, Bigfoot.
Also, Deluxe the distribution brand that once housed the Rasa name, has also gone live with their newest goods in the "Deluxe Holiday 08 Online Catalog." Inside you'll find video, interviews and brand new product from Spitfire, Thunder, Real, Anti-Hero and Krooked. E-mail Santa these links alongside a list of your demands. And if the fat bastard doesn't come through with what you wanted, well then, you should punch yourself in the nuts, because fairy tales are for suckas!

Indy Drops Their 30th Anniversary Tour Video, Free Of Charge
Courtesy Independent Truck Co.
This is a rad one. Every Tuesday and Thursday, 2 parts of Indy's 30th Anniversary Tour video will be released for free, on the Independent 30th Anniversary microsite. So far parts 1-4 have been posted and it looks real good. As you know, the Indy 30th Anniversary Tour popped off this past May through July and featured a heavy hitting list of classic riders, old and new.
If you're feeling antsy and don't think you can wait for the upcoming installments of this thing, stop by your local skateshop and pick up the December issue of Thrasher. Not only does the mag come shrink-wrapped with the Full-Length tour video, it features a giant 24-page article on the tour. Get on it, fools.
