Editor's Choice | Jaime Owens Of Skateboarder Magazine
Jul 18, 2013 12:57 PM CDT

If there's one group of people out there who know a thing or two about skateboarding and skateboard products it's skate magazine editors and Skateboarder Magazine Editor-In-Chief Jaime Owens is no exception. This guy spends his days and his nights watching, learning and listening to skateboarding and when he's not he's writing about it all and delivering you all the news fit to read every single month. For this reason, CCS tapped Mr. Owens this month to list out his favorite new products currently available at CCS and to tell us why he picked them. His highly informed choices are below with full explanations behind each. Have a look and see what you think.

Chocolate Trunk Boyz Deck - "Who doesn’t love the Trunk Boyz? Especially, Stevie Perez. He rules. Definitely hyped on this deck. I want to skate like little Flaco!"

Enjoi Summer Tank - "I’m going to want to show of my guns and farmers tan this summer, so why not do it with this enjoi tank top. And I’ll make some people laugh while I’m at it too. Double win."

Crail Cruiser – “Having a cruiser board is a must these days. Well, not really but they sure are cool and fun to ride and this Crail cruiser is pretty sweet."


Toy Machine Monster Face deck - "Ed Templeton is one of my all-time favorite skaters and I’ve always been a fan of Toy Machine. I like these kind of basic and bold graphics they’ve been doing. They look sick flipping under your feet." 

Lakai Guy Shoe - "If there was a rock that had Guy Mariano’s name on it. You buy it. The man is a legend and you respect the legends by buying their products. Anything with Guys’ name on it, I'm getting it. And Lakai’s are feeling really good on my feet these days." 

Real Champion Deck - "Real Skateboards is such a sick team and they do tons of good stuff for skateboarding. You gotta support them based on that alone. And this is a Busenitz board which makes it even better."

Skate Mental Got Sponsors - "Brad Staba is making some of the best and funniest skate graphics in the industry right now. Taking the Nascar insult made towards skaters with lots of sponsors and turning it into a sick graphic; epic." 

Stance Shake Junt - "I’m wearing these socks right now as I type. Stance socks are the best and these Shank Junt color ways rule. Chickenbonenowison!"

Vans Spicoli Shades - "Fast Times At Ridgemont High is one of my favorite movies, so since Vans made Spicoli shades I’m definitely going run these."

Vans Chima Pro - "It’s sick that Chima gets the first pro Vans shoes they’ve put out in a couple of years. He always skated in one of my favorite shoes, the Era. So naturally his pro shoe is just a more cushioned version of that one which makes this Chima pro an instant classics."
