The full Santa Cruz Team hits Garvanza Skatepark.
Life comes at all of us differently. Some people use their situation as an excuse and others use it to fuel their fire. Blake accomplished his dreams of becoming a pro skater through what some would seem to be an impossible goal. Hear his close friends and family members talk about how Blake got to where he is today. This is Blake Johnson’s True Grit.
From humble beginnings all the way to the world stage, this True Grit features Maurio McCoy. Last year we made our way out to the east coast to spend time with Maurio and his family in his hometown of Reading Pennsylvania.
Located about half way between Philadephia and Harrisburg, the states capital, Reading is the site of the now defunct Reading Railroad, the same one that you may have purchased in your most recent game of Monopoly. Over the course of the cities history it has seen good days and bad but there I no question that to make it out it takes perseverance. To learn more about his roots, drive and how he became the incredible skater and person he is today check out this True Grit.
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!
The all new Mako Powerply series is now available. Featuring decks from Eric Dressen, Kevin Braun and Tom Remillard. Mako created this stunning series by hand with unique details for each rider. To find out more on Mako, how he works and why the pros love him, watch the video.

#ThrowbackThursday to one of our favorite skaters and humans Jake Wooten. If you got to check him out at PHXAM last weekend you know he always brings the heat, so here is some lip trick madness from when he came to visit Santa Cruz around this time last year. Jake has the most insane bag of tricks, how do you even come up with this stuff?
Watch Erick 8Ballr Winkowski, Jake Wooten, Eric Dressen and Blake Johnson skate a boat. Yes, thats right, our good friends at The Boardr let the gang come by for a session at the #boardrboat and never would have thought it possible to skate a tree and a boat at the same time.
