Part 3 of 3
The R.A.D. crew assembled in California for a week of skateboarding up the coast. Featuring team riders James Kelly, Cole Kurtz, Louis Pilloni, Jimmy Riha, and Jackson Shapiera; the crew weaved their way down coastal mountain passes in search of perfect runs. In part 3, the crew battle the elements as they make their way to Norther California.
The gates are now locked and cameras watching but not before Matt Deitch takes a fast run down an old favorite. Like most runs, it’s steeper and faster then it appears. The road looks enticing, but trespassing tickets await for all that cross. It’s sad to see a good run go, but now is the time to skate and explore.
Calvin Staub stopped in for the day in Los Angeles and didn’t bring a damn thing with him. No board, no helmet, nothing. But of course he had to skate Malibu, and not just any run, he had to skate the fastest chunderful run we have. So Kitty Cal borrowed a prototype S1 Helmets Fullface, and a board from Skate House and went out for a rip!
Comet Skateboards is proud to present the second of three Brucin’ USA Segments. In part 2 Eric Jensen, Anthony Flis and Nick Ketner head first to Texas to hang with some good Texan folk on their way to ABQ for the legendary Ditch Slap.

The R.A.D. crew assembled in California for a week of skateboarding up the coast. Featuring team riders James Kelly, Cole Kurtz, Louis Pilloni, Jimmy Riha, and Jackson Shapiera; the crew weaved their way down coastal mountain passes in search of perfect runs. In part 2, the crew made base camp in Santa Barbara to skate a desolate run tucked away in the mountains.
San Diego local, Jimmy Riha, is always down to skate. All day every day you can find him out in the hills leaving lines.
The Upper Pro Teutonia is one of the fastest and gnarliest skateboard races in the world. It’s rough, steep, and one of the wildest roller coaster you can ride. “Follow MuirSkate Team Riders Scott Lembach and Max Ballesteros as they charge down one of the fastest and gnarliest race tracks in the world with Brazilians Carlos Paixao and Bernardod Borges at the 2014 Upper Pro Teutonia! Congrats to Carlos Paixao on 1st in Open, Max for placing 2nd in Open, and Scott for placing 5th in Masters!” – Muir Skate
Drafting and passing at 70+mph is a whole new ballgame (especially when there is massive cracks that you can hit when you pop out of the draft).
