Comet, Caliber and Volante rider, Eric Jensen, recently pasted through SkateHouse for some skating before his film trip up north with the Volante crew. We talked about doing a monthly photo feature of his skate travels and we’re stoked to see the photos he sent over.
“Yo Skate House, Its Eric Jensen writing about that photo column we talked about a few weeks ago. I just got back from Yosemite with the Volante crew and captured some rad photos I’d love for you to share over the skate house page. Ive got some comments to go with the photos that match the jpg name. These are 4 of my favorite from this trip and id be stoked if you could use them. If i could do something monthly for you guys that would be awesome. Ive been working on collecting some night skating in SF images lately. get back to me and let me know what you think.” – Jensen
Muir Skate held their 2013 Downhill Disco last month. It was rad, as expected, with dudes flying through the air and getting broke off. Here’s some pictures.
If you went to any skateboard races last year, chances are you’ve already met Texas’ Brian “Chubbs” Cortright. A Bombsquad Longboards and Venom team rider, dude spent all last summer on the road living the dream in a sticker-covered van and traveling from one event to the next.

Multi-talented Texas homies Tanner and Wes flew out to California to catch a punk show this weekend and got some skating in while they were out here. Max took ‘em out to the hills and snapped a few photos. Two more after the jump. (more…)
Rip City Skate proprietor and Venom team homie JP Rowan kicks up some dust slashing frontside in Santa Barbara.
Scientist, San Francisco skate stylist, Comet skateboards & Caliber Trucks rider Big Dave Tannaci surfs left in SB. Normally a city creature, he’s still getting used to going fast on mountain roads. A few more after the jump. (more…)
James was recently down in South America for the Sudo Americano IGSA races. Apart from racing, partying, and freeriding the local hills… He managed to snap some pics of his travels and exploits along the way.

Among the many reasons I don’t surf–fear of drowning, dislike of spandex bodysuits, fucking sharks–the need to get up early to catch waves is high on the list. Pavement is always there and asphalt is available on your own schedule.
That said, certain runs are best skated early in the morning, before traffic starts. And once you’re out of bed and gassed up with coffee, dawn patrol can be quite pleasant. The air is cool and the sun is low in the sky, so everything looks a little different.
If you’re in school or have a 9-5 job, a good session makes the rest of the day bearable. If you’re funemployed or have flexible hours, you’ve got several hours of scooter- and little kid-free hours of skatepark time to mash some grinds in before it gets all crowded.
Early-morning drivers on challenging canyon roads tend to be sports-car yahoos who want to get their kicks before the Highway Patrol has had their coffee and donuts. This kind of situation–heading into a corner all packed up with a car approaching–is why you learn to footbrake. That’s Griffin in the foreground.
Different styles on the sixth of seven miles. As we head into winter, daylight is getting scarcer and afternoon sessions have to end sooner. Fight seasonal affective disorder by skateboarding as much as possible.

I understand these rocks ruined someone’s day.
