There's some great stuff floating around the Internets today. Aftera sneak peak at their pro boards in the Spring Line, Habitat has announced that Guru Khalsa and Daryl Angel have joined the pro ranks. Look for a full interview with Guru right here on ESPN Skateboarding in the near distant future.
If you haven't checked out part one of Nike's "Don't Fear The Sweeper" tour video, you're blowing it. Since when do double-set switch heel late shoves get used in a tour video?! Since Cory Kennedy got on the team, I suppose.

In new product news, Deluxe has released part one of their online 2010 catalogue with the Thunder trucks section. Check out all the new trucks and colorways as well as a little vid from Erik Ellington showing you how to do nollie backside heels. Brad Staba hit me up to let everyone know that new Skate Mental product is up on the Internets. And Converse has some new shoes with classic style for your viewing pleasure as well.
This one needs some background. A while back we did an interview with Britain's own Olly Todd. At the time, he rode for Stereo skateboards where he'd been for a few years. Only a few weeks after that interview however, Todd shocked a lot of people when he left Stereo to ride for the newly minted Palace Skateboards. Whiel their website could stand some improvement, Palace comes correct out of London with deep ties to Slam City Skates and serves as an off-shoot from the tight-knit crew of Londoners, the Palace Waywards.
