On the heels of an epic video part in Surroundings, our newest CCS team rider, Jake Selover is still on a hot one. We sent him a box of some our newest CCS apparel and let him loose at his hometown park to see what he could do. We threw in his CCS team mates Kevin Kowalksi, Tony Ellis, and Mason Merlino and it made for an entire edit of radness. Check out the new CCS drop and pick that shit up so you can skate like Jake… Yeah.
When we were recently hanging out with CCS pro, Ryan Lay, we were watching him do these marathon lines at his local park where he would lane 30-40 tricks in a row. After some ridiculous brainstorming, Ryan was confident that he may be able to do 100 tricks in a row without getting off his board. Of course we called him on this claim and demanded him to make it a reality. Literally two days later he sent us this clip. A 15 minute nonstop single line with 102 tricks in it. To make it harder he tried not to repeat any tricks on any obstacles. What a psycho! If you wanna be a psycho too, we recommend picking up his pro model skateboard from Welcome at CCS.com. You will not regret it! – CCS
CCS team rider Kader Sylla rolled up to the CCS Warehouse to take over Kev’s Kreations. Kader had a ton of surprises up his long sleeves–it was truly a day of firsts. Full vidoe HERE.
Surroundings, A skateboarding film out of Portland Oregon by Chris Varcadipane, featuring CCS shop riders Jake Selover, Josh Love, Tony Ellis and more.
Mark Gonzales is a legendary human who has been coined as the god father of modern day street skating. He changed the way the last 3 decades of skaters perceive what can be done on a skateboard. He has been a HUGE inspiration to skateboarding and surrounding sub-cultures since he rolled onto the scene in the early 80’s. The Gonz seems to dominated everything he touches. From his sporadic but smooth skate style to his art work, it just seems to genuinely flow from his creative mind. It’s only natural that Kev decided to build a Gonz themes board as a tribute to Mark Gonzales. Tune in and check out this episode of Kevs Kreations and don’t forget to leave a comment naming the Gonz board for a chance to take it home.
Three of CCS’ finest pros who also happen to ride for some of the best wheels in the biz and see what happens when you take Bones Street Tech Formula wheels for a 100 spins. Featuring Aaron JAWS Homoki, David Gravette and Kevin Kowalski.
Strolling down memory lane simultaneously in two different generations can be confusing, to say the least. Chris Cole and Tom Asta navigate their way through fond memories, flat bars, and piles of dog shit in this installment of Mail-Order Memories.
Is it offensive to call Erick Winkowski a freak of nature? Because there aren’t many more ways we can think of to explain him to someone. Between balancing on one arm on top of vert ramps for what seems like hours and grinding massive rails on a board shape that was never meant to leave a ramp, Erick has been on a war path lately. We sat down with him to talk a little about his first pro model board for Santa Cruz and his video part from Right to Exist. We have a new batch of his boards coming in to the shop real soon here, but they’re gonna go quick so stay tuned!
We don’t get nearly as many guest stars on The Kreations as we should, but that all changes today! On the first of what will hopefully be many guest-hosted episodes, we got CCS team rider and professional building jumper, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki to come down to the warehouse and show us how to jump! We built the ultimate impact board so Jaws could splat off the second floor of our warehouse. Did he land it? Gotta watch to see!
If you want to properly wear test an Andrew Reynolds shoe, you call up Andrew Reynolds. If he happens to split his shin open the week before you’re supposed to shoot the wear test and gets a nasty infection, then you may have to call in back ups. Thankfully The Boss has a pretty solid back up squad. We threw Kader Sylla in a pair of Reynolds G6’s and we could barley tell the difference! He kickflipped all over the damn place and officially became one of our favorite skaters ever. See how the G6’s held up to his small yet mighty flick and then pick up a pair at CCS!
CCS celebrated the 27th birthday of Burnside Skatepark on a mysteriously warm Halloween evening among a carnivorous costume combustion of ghouls, goblins, punks, and drunks! The evolution of Burnside continues with the addition of the new concrete death hole and huge quarter pipe. Each year, skaters young and old step to new obstacles and push the limits of what can be done at the park. Through the misty smoke from fireworks, the ear-piercing riffs blasting from punk bands’ amp stacks, and the carcass crashing cross traffic in the park, CCS managed to capture some carnage that went down that day… Watch this video ’cause the bowl troll’s were out for blood at Burnside this Halloween.
