Olympus gave us their new water- and shockproof Stylus Tough 8010 cameras to get the insider perspective from people with the most access to the 16th Summer X Games. So, our friend and Tum Yeto everyman team manager, Mike Sinclair, was there yesterday, snapping shots of some of skating’s best in practice. If last year’s X Games 15 was in a white dress hitting a piñata for it’s Quinceañera, this year it’s got its driver’s license and it’s cruisin’ - it’s all up at the Staple Center in downtown LA, the street and park courses are looking pretty bonkers and the best have come out to roll–Josh Brooks
If I were a commentator at the X Games, I’d be like “David Gravette defies GRAVITY on this ollie one-foot!” then I’d drop the mic, triumphantly celebrating my on-point announcing, and walk out of the booth.
Collin Provost gives it a thumbs up. A lot easier than Stay Gold, I’m sure.
The media catch up with Sheckler after being out for the better part of last year with an injury he sustained in X Games 15. Doesn’t look like it’s hindering him, though. You see practice?
Johnny Layton made it out. Anyone seen this, by the way? Get paid!
Thumbs up…universal sign for “I like!”
Marc Appleyard made it out to practice with a very interesting new board. One love.
Nick Trapasso check in.
Bless it! Bless the check in! Bless everyone.
Friend, facilitator and stylist to all skateboard stars, Boosh (right) and Nick Trapasso. That’s correct. Even X Games is not an official skateboard event unless Boosh is there.
A Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain and Christian Hosoi legend sandwich.
Robocop and his shin guards. Looks like this is the non-skater’s shinner protector.
Brazilian Pedro Barros was there ripping the park, as always. Frontside air.
Taylor Bingaman was there. Backside tailslide. If you don’t know, you’ll know. Hallelujah officially released yesterday. Buy it here.
Pedro Barros bonelesses from shallow to deep.
Taylor again, making it look fun. Method.
The course looks insane. Chad Bartie ollies over the part I like to call the “Nun’s Headdress.” Check back for more inside shots from today.

This just in from DVS:
“DVS prides itself on retaining its skateboarders. Over the company’s fifteen-year history, many of the pros that began their careers with DVS still proudly stand behind the brand today—names that have changed skateboarding—Daewon Song, Chico Brenes, Jeron Wilson, and Daniel Castillo.
In recent years, DVS has made some strong additions to the team—brining in new talent to carry the company into the future. Skaters like Torey Pudwill, Andrew Brophy, Kenny Hoyle, Jimmy Cao, and Robbie Russo truly represent the next generation of skateboarding and the future of DVS.
The latest name to be added to DVS’ history books is Buena Park, California native, Nick Garcia. Like all the other DVS riders, Nick’s skateboarding talent is undeniable. His style is fast and smooth—a look you’ll definitely get used to seeing more of. We’re proud to have Nick as a part of the family and look forward to supporting his career and talent for many years to come. Welcome to the team.”

Mikey Burton
Home: North Hollywood, California
Sponsors: The Hundreds, Markisa Accessories, Nike SB, Manik Skateboards, Goods Skateshop
Favorite city: Seattle with the homies!
Your deepest fear: Injuries!
Best skate video you’ve seen recently: Hallelujah.
Best street skater of the past year: Torey Pudwell.
Best tranny skater of the past year: Bob Burnquist.
Best rookie pro: Tyler Bledsoe. He’s pro now right?
Plans for the summer: Stack clips son!
Thing you would do if the world was ending: Party Like it was 1999—haha!
Waste of cash: Booze.
Next meal: Carne Asada burrito!
I first met Mikey Burton when he came to live in Sacramento for the summer. We loved giving him a hard time. One time we told everyone in town that he was the skater “Death Wish” and it bummed him out so bad. Another time I was mixing bondo with gloves on and greeted him with a handful of a bondo handshake. No matter how bummed Mikey got though, he was always killing it. I got to witness one of the gnarliest tricks I’ve ever seen done, which we used in Hallelujah (ollie over barrier to flat). He went to a spot that tons have been to and shut it down (landing it twice). That was the one day I couldn’t give Mikey a hard time.—Chris Ray
Song: Bitter Sweet - Dirty Laundry
Filmed & edited by Cory Williams
Additonal filming: Chris Ray, Kurt Hayashi, Anthony Claravall, Jeff Halsted, Max Henderson, Cory Woods, Josh Anderson

“For the past few years, I”ve been running around the globe so much that I’ve missed out on the institution that is the East Coast backyard bbq. It’s in my blood. So simple and yet so fun. It’s been a daily occurrence on this leg of the trip. Camping out with all the bros at Freddy’s grandma’s house, spending nights by the fire, reflecting on the waxing and waning of the moon, and spots searching around in-between demos and signings. Morale is high.”—Keed Reed

Last night was the launch party for the 15 Yearés Of Photoés book by Atiba Jefferson at Space 15TWENTY in Hollywood. Being a photographer myself, I really look up to Atiba, because his photographs are not only amazing, but a majority of them are iconic photographs that have been embedded in my brain. The book is filled with all of them and then some, many which are a part of TransWorld SKATEboarding history. Everybody who wasn’t out of town made it out in support of 15 Yearés Of Photoés, and had a great time. The book is out in bookstores and skateshops now, you know you’ve been waiting 15 Yearés to get it!
A very young P-Rod was part of the 15 Yeares Of Photoes. Wow its been a long time.
