There are throngs of things coming down the pipe, most notably, Back to the Berg , the Wallenberg challenge on May 30th at Wallenberg High School from Noon to 1pm. Based around that event, Girl and Chocolate are doing demos starting on the day before the contest at Val Surf in Encino, CA and the day after Wallenberg at Epic Skatepark in Sacramento, CA. Whether some of the dudes might not be able to skate after Wallenberg is a question. Anyone at the Skate Life Northwest trade show at the Department of Skateboarding in Portland will probably be talking about what happened at Wallenberg from 1pm to 5pm. Ams hoping to make a name for themselves might have a hard time deciding between being at the Wallenberg event or the Damn Am contest at 3rd Lair Skatepark in Minneapolis. Lastly, a few of the names hucking themselves down SF's famous set might be kicking off the Zumiez Couch Tour , starting on May 30 until July 1st. Catch 'em if you can.
The first company to attempt the hollow wheel since Ricta gave it a shot, Darkstar Wheels has made the Hybrid wheel which is a mix of their other hollow wheel, the Lightknight Hollow, and the Lightening Cores. "No flatspots guaranteed," they say. Shoot, with Rodney Mullen over there at Dwindle engineering his heart out, who knows what's possible? I mean, the dude invented the kickflip. THE KICKFLIP!
To win ten sets of Darkstar Hybrid Wheels, click here and enter your information before July 15th, 2009 to win. Good luck.
