While it may be far from home for Avery, this run is in SkateHouseMedia backyard. “Follow along with team rider Avery Wilcox as he descends a west coast classic. With steep grades, narrow lanes, and lots of traffic this road is not for the faint of heart.” – Action Board Shop
“With a trip that exceeds three weeks, you’re bound to have a stock pile of awesome footage left over. Here we have road trips, slams, night life and everything you’d expect from a trip to South Korea. Sit back and enjoy some behind the scenes entertainment.” – Landyachtz
We’re very excited to get to bring you episode one of this sure-to-be insanely epic series from the folks at Caliber Truck Co, featuring James Kelly and Liam Morgan skating downhill in one of the raddest places we’ve ever seen. Enjoy!
“A big part of downhill skateboarding is exploring new terrain with your friends. Most start with loading up a van and heading out to the nearest elevation change in hopes of finding a rad run close to home. The apex of the downhill dream is to hop on a plane and travel to the most remote locations on earth in search of the best roads our planet has to offer. James Kelly’s dream for the past 5 years has been to travel to a small island off of Madagascar called La Réunion, and skate the roads he had only seen from satellite imagery. We decided to send him and Liam Morgan to fulfill that dream, and have Jack Boston capture the journey in a way that only he could. In Part One, the boys begin exploring the island, finally setting foot on the asphalt they’ve been dreaming of.” – Caliber Truck Co
First and foremost us say that North Carolina is the worst place in the world for downhill skateboarding. Don’t even visit, it’s not worth it, just go visit Malibu instead. Despite the sub par hills we managed to scrape together this edit of California boy Quentin Gachot and NC local Brad Perala for our newest S1 Lifer Helmet video.

Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, Will Stephan shreds all terrain from flat ground to the steepest hills. He spent the summer on the east coast with the Original crew designing this new board. After he designed it, he was off to the west coast to put the board to the test. Follow along as he sheds it down a California classic.
While in New Zealand for the Mt Ruapehu Gravity Festival, Brandon Tissen, Kaimana Pinto, and Tyler Howell check their sacks and take a tour of the testicle facility.
The Caliber boys caught a ferry to Hawaii for a tour with the Sunset Sliders bus. Hella lurking and even a bit of skating occurred.
“The Bogart is our smallest and most versatile wheel. It changed Bill’s life, and it can change yours. Bill believes in the Bogart so much that he takes to the streets spread the Sucrose gospel, making sure everyone knows the Bogart is the ideal size for your cruiser or city slasher board, and comes equipped with a stoneground finish to slide perfect right out of the packaging. Big round lips keeps the slides smooth, and make sure these wheels roll smoothing on all surfaces. The core offset helps slow you down in slides, and even contributes to grip when you really need to lean into things. If you care about the children, check out the Bogart.
The Bogart weighs in at 61mm tall, with a 36mm contact patch and 2.5mm core offset. It comes in 82a in all five colors.” – Arbor Sucrose
