The benefits of having a proper set of Pro-Tec knee pads are well established. The ability to knee slide out of your bailed vert tricks can give you greater confidence to push your boundaries, help establish proper form on the ramp, and assist in the long-term retention of having knee caps so you can, you know, continue to have knees.
For many skaters, the real concern with knee pads is how it will affect mobility and performance when not sliding down the big transitions.
With this in mind, CCS Brand Director Matt Price dusted off the classic 100 Kickflips chestnut to do a little scientific real world analysis. He took the Pro-Tec Pro Knee Pads to the streets (er- skatepark) so you can witness how they perform under the intense pressures of Matt’s mighty stomp. Will they elevate or hinder the flicks and what will be the resulting wear and tear… on Price’s knees?
CCS Deck Wear Test at Ponderosa Skatepark in Anaheim. Over at CCS we have always known that their decks are great, but they have never taken them out for a true wear test. CCS didn’t want to test them and have a bias opinion, so their guy Dale took a box of boards over to one of his favorite skateparks and decided to have the locals test them out. Tune in as CCS gives 3 decks to local Anaheim skateboarders and had them skate their local park to put the boards through a true test.

500 seemed like a nice even number and Krooked Pro (and Ace “Pilot”) Ronnie Sandoval was game to get some grind. He gives us a few extra tricks in there to keep it lively, but once he gets dialed-in with the 40 block runs, be prepared for some serious pool hypnosis. Pick up a pair HERE.

Fully equipped with enthusiasm, a new shovel, a roll of sod, and a big box of products generously donated from the lovely lads at Deluxe, CCS’ Dale Decker recently set out to literally bury some skate treasure near some of the well known spots in the Los Angeles area. But, it so happens that attempting to excavate public property has some drawbacks.

Jose chose the Nike SB ‘Pink Pig’ Dunk Lows from his winnings so we could all witness how these desirable kicks stand up to 100 kickflips. Is Jose for real when he claims he skates his Dunks, or is he just bunting?
Only one way to find out.
