Despite the fact that this week has shaped up to be a rather slow week in skateboarding news, the industry was abuzz early on Wednesday with the Oakley team including CCS riders Arto Saari and Ryan Sheckler who were clearly getting busy down in Australia this month with the release of Oakley's Fear And Loathing In Australia video and mini-site drop. If you haven't seen it yet, give it a Click and peep the goods. We promise it's worth your time.
Big news hit the Thrasher Magazine wire this week surrounding San Francisco's legendary Wallenberg stairs. Not only we're two never-been-dones handled there in perfect form, but they were handled on the same day at the same session. Forrest Edwards nailed a switch flip down the monster set then DJ Gaudin followed it up with a face melting switch backside flip. Clearly the bar has been raised at Wallenberg.
In footwear happenings, Nyjah Huston released his long awaited pro model shoe from DC late last week with an incredible clip featuring a noseblunt slide down Hollywood High. Definitely worth a peek if you haven't already. Stay tuned for tons more Nyjah coverage around the official release of his shoe in the CCS shop in the coming weeks.
