When CCS showed up to shoot this wear test for Jamie Foy’s new pro model shoe from New Balance, they thought he was gonna do 100 Front Crooks, but being the overachiever he is he wanted to do something gnarlier. So he decided to rifle off 100 tricks on one of his favorite flat bars with out repeating one. Settle in and don’t blink, because there’s a lot going on in this one! Shop the New Balance Jamie Foy 306 HERE.
CCS met up with Bones rider, T.J. Rogers and had him put a hurtin on over 500 feet worth of slides. This is no easy feat when you throw in tricks like a Nollie Noseslide Hardflip out. T.J. is in insane… Grab some Easy Streets at CCS.com today!
CCS flew all the way to New York for one day, only to have it rain all over them, but that didn’t stop Converse Cons rider Kaue Cossa from easily smashing 100 Kickflips in one of Cons’ newest models, the Chekpoint Pro. Aside from some laces the shoe held up great which is rad because it’s priced for the working man at $64.95. Oh yeah, there was a lot of bagpipes too… pick up a pair HERE.
Fabiana Delfino skates fast, slams, films amazing parts and does it all with a smile. Fabi is the pure embodiment of skateboarding, and CCS couldn’t be happier to have her as their newest addition to the CCS team. Fellow CCS team rider, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki brings Fabi in with a little bit of his signature mouth harping, haha.
If you’re not familiar with Orange Man AKA Abe Dubin, then you must hate fun. Abe rides for the wonderfully whacky, Fancy Lad skateboards and is a wizard with a jigsaw and wheels. He has built/modified every type of skateboard known to man and skated impossible spots with his custom creations. Abe teamed up with his pal, Gnardo to spread the word of insane creativity and building your own wild shit. Check out what they came up with at their event in Seattle last month.
When CCS heard Santa Cruz had made a nearly unbreakable skateboard deck they knew that their resident board breaker, Matt Price had to put it to the test. Since he hadn’t skated off more than a curb in a few years, CCS thought it would be fitting to have him Ollie 100 stairs on one of the new VX decks. Even in three stair increments, this was no easy feat on the knees, or the board. These things really live up to the hype though. Watch the vid then pick one up at CCS.com!
CCS teamed up with Adidas to create the 3rd annual mini spot at the Portland OR CCS shop, and this one was a banger. CCS pulled together a few of the most iconic obstacles from The Brooklyn Banks in NYC and mashed them up into what they called The Brooklyn Bumps. The list of invited skaters was heavy and the contest went off! Also the thousands of people in attendance got broke off with bags of product from our carnival village. All in all it was their best event yet!
CCS has been trying to get Nyjah on the 100 Kickflip challenge forever, because they knew it would not be a challenge at all. Sure enough he banged out 100 in less than 20 minutes total, and only missed about 2 or 3. That’s not even the crazy part. The craziest part is that his shoe, the Nike SB Nyjah Free barely even broke a sweat let alone ripped a lace. See how this superhuman shoe held up to superhuman skating and then pick up a pair today at CCS.com!
CCS follows Unity on their tour down the coast of California.
When Brixton came out with their line of denim, we figured they would be tough. Since Brixton creates products with skating, motorcycles, camping and music in mind, whatever they make has to be able to get the shit beat out of it. To proper beat the shit out of a pair we grabbed CCS warehouse employee, ripping skater, and van enthusiast, Noah Staller and tossed him in a pair of new denim and told him he couldn’t take them off for 30 days. Noah lives in the CCS parking lot, so he spends most of his time working, skating, or hanging outside. We knew he would give these pants hell. See how they held up and then grab a pair for yourself at CCS.com!
T Funk is just insane on a skateboards. In the last few years, he has grown in to one of the heaviest pro’s out. DC also noticed this and gave Tristan one of the highest honors a skateboarder can achieve in the form of his own pro model shoe. CCS headed to Baker Boys HQ and skated the shoe with Tristan, Evan Smith, John Gardner, Ace Pelka and a bunch more homies to see what it was all about. Check the video then pick up a pair of T-Funk’s at CCS.com!
For Go Skateboarding Day this year, CCS teamed up with their buds over at Creature to see how far they could push their local crew on their favorite local wall. CCS built a few ramps, got a few hundred of their closest friends in the PDX skateboard community and had themselves a little jam. CCS gave away $500 in cash for tons of rad tricks. In the end, Tony Ellis grinded the 10 foot wall AND did a 14 foot FS Wallride, taking home the most loot out of anyone, but the best part of the day was seeing how many people came out to skate with us. Go skateboarding every day!
