SKBSG NEWS UPDATES


This is a weird one. Zac Efron, the heartthrob young actor that your sisters and girlfriends all have a crush on, apparently skates. Not only that, The Times of India is reporting that Efron bought a new house, his first, and designed it specifically so he could skate inside it. Oh man. "It's unique, very modern, very clean, very simple, with concrete floors so I can skateboard inside the house," Efron told The Times of India. While you don't have to like Efron as an actor (I don't), and him skating might make you feel queasy (that's how I felt when I read this), the fact that an actor of this level of notoriety is, apparently an avid skater, is certainly eyebrow raising. Remember when the popular kids didn't like us? Nobody bothered to ask Efron if his kickflips have flick or mob style, though.


With all the MegaRampin' Bob Burnquist usually does these days it's almost weird to see him skating an everyday miniramp. Sometimes I forget that Bob is one of the more versatile skaters alive and can tear up virtually any terrain put in front of him. Younger skaters may not remember Bob's switch vert onslaught from his early career days on Antihero or even his ATV attack filming for the ├ęS classic, "Menikmati." Not slowing down "Extremely Sorry", Bob and Luan Oliviera tear apart the Flip miniramp in this clip.
