No More DC Shoes For Rob Dyrdek

DC Shoes (owned by Quiksilver/Bankrupt) and Rob Dyrdek are now parting ways. We’re guessing DC by no way can afford what they we’re paying Rob!

SKATELINE – Danny Way and Greyson Fletcher

“Greyson Fletcher is now pro people. He’s getting paid by Element so that means he’s getting rapped out with his crack out. He could probably afford some droors, but probably still won’t buy none.” – Skateline

Tony Hawk Now Selling At Walmart

Tony Hawk has just announced a license agreement where his products will be sold exclusively, but yet is he to embarrassed to say the name Walmart – notice he say’s “retailer” not Walmart?

“I’ve worked closely with the team at Cherokee Global Brands to create a launch plan appropriate for the number one retailer in Canada. In my many visits to Canada on skate tours, I am consistently humbled by the response that Canadians have given to me, the Tony Hawk brand and skateboarding in general. I will be fully committed to the success of this launch through my social media, marketing, and appearances. It’s going to be a great ride!” – Tony Hawk / MarketWatch

Zero cool, but signing multi-million dollar contracts – do you really think Tony cares about being cool anymore

World Record Highest Air By Danny Way

Danny Way has done it again – this time breaking his old record of the highest air ever done on a skateboard.

Danny Way and the HIGHEST AIR EVER
In the Cuyamaca Mountains above San Diego California DC shoes and Monster Energy built the largest quarter pipe in history. On July 18th, 2015 Danny Way set out to break the current highest air record – a record he set June 12th, 2003 at 23.5 feet. The new official record is 25.5 feet.

Now in 2015

Still waiting to here back from Grant Brittain (skate photog legend), but we happened to notice Danny landing back onto the white platform as to landing back onto the ramp (below the coping). Our question to Grant; “Is it somewhat “cheating or playing it safe” when Danny doesn’t land back onto the ramp, but he lands on an extension of the ramp (the white thing)?”

When a skater does an air the air is measured from the coping to where the skater is – so in Danny’s case they took the measurement from the main ramp and not from the top of the coping of the white box in which he landed on.
