After a summer of non-stop traveling in the van with the crew, skating every spot put in front of him and never complaining… from everyone at REAL, welcome to the team Gage! – REAL
A one, two punch from Tanner Van Vark!
We’ll never stop being fans of mark Gonzales. His art… his skating.. just him! So when an envelope showed up with art for a new Postcards Series with Ishod, Kyle and Zion it was a done deal! To celebrate REAL put together some of his classic REAL Video parts, including his part from Non-Fiction along with some of our favorite Gabe Morford photos from Mark’s REAL Days.
Rob Pontes is a pillar of the east coast skate scene. His hard work through the years has benefited shops, skaters and parks too many to count. Rob was diagnosed with ALS and is undergoing a series of new treatments to beat it. Our heart is with him and his family.
Every year many shops and skaters have come together, hosting events and fundraisers to help Rob and his family through their journey. Roll For Rob! More info on the charity and events HERE.
To celebrate Jack going pro (a couple times) REAL put together some of their favorite clips from over the years. Congrats again and again Jack! Pick up his latest decks HERE.
The Real team met up with Tanner Van Vark at the Houghton Skate Park in Long Beach. They told him he had to film a First Look with the new issue of Thrasher, little did he know REAL was actually surprising him with a new AD in the mag! Check out how it all went down!
Skateboarding is unique in the fact that it remains open to anyone and everyone – Unity Skateboarding, based in Oakland, CA, is a project that supports and celebrates all queer and transgender people in skateboarding. They provide a platform for visibility and create inclusive and welcoming spaces for them to come together in the Bay Area and beyond. A portion of the proceeds from this board will go directly to the Transgender Law Center, a national trans-led organization, to support their continued efforts advocating self-determination for all people so they can live safely, authentically, and free from discrimination regardless of their gender identity or expression.
Dan Mancina and the Real team spent the day at El Sereno Skatepark in LA to roll with the locals. A few brave skaters threw on blindfolds to get a glimpse into what skateboarding is like for Dan.
Dan Mancina is no different than any skateboarder – he loves every second of it and doesn’t let anything get in his way. While losing his eyesight at the age of 23 due to a degenerative eye disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa cast a spotlight on him in the skateboard community, he was already a strong part of it. After the first time he skated with the Real Team he was instantly a part of the crew. With Dan’s help we worked on a special Actions REALized board designed specifically for the visually impaired.
