    DockSession LA July

    The month of July has been a busy one for us here at DockSession LA. We had our beloved Mexican Loaded ambassador Marco Sandoval in town, so we were mostly stacking clips for his upcoming video in Los Angeles. Sadly we don't have an event video for this blog post since all the footage will be saved for the video. Keep your eyes peeled on the Loaded YouTube and Facebook pages!

    In addition to filming with Marco, Alberto has been skating more and more while recovering his knee. He came back with a different mindset and he's been getting new tricks that even surprise him.

    We've had a couple of new members added to the weekly slashing, we're always happy to see new faces. Next week's session is going to be in Santa Monica, pushing by the beach. Join us! Bring your friends and some sunblock!

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s Log – 170721

    I had been working in a small mom & pop sporting good store that bought and sold used sporting equipment. I had gotten the job as a way to earn some meager cash over the summer while school had been on recess. The owner was, often times, in a drunken stupor in his little upstairs office, while my co-worker and I ran the store.

    DockSession June/July

    It's been such a fun month for DockSession! Franklin Sundays are growing strong and more people are starting to come. We had an awesome little session in Vancouver before the Giant's Head Freeride weekend. Hosted by Flatspot Longboard Shop, the crew skated through Vancouver and stopped at several spots to hang out and share with the locals.

    Here's a little recap of some fun clips we've filmed at Franklin.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark's Log – 170710

    Skateboarding has been the focus of my life for the last decade. Whether it was playing an active role as a photographer/writer contributing "content" to the hype machine or being the eye candy in front of the lens, I've managed to carve out a double existence within this small humble realm, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't acknowledge the fact that I've been extremely fortunate to have been able to live such a life. With that said, if there is one thing you realize through all of this, it's that stagnation is the swan song to our industry. The moment we accept complacency within our spectrum, is the moment when everything begins to unravel.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s Log – 170613

    I’ll never forget what it felt like to attend my first slide jam. I remember the crowds of skaters and spectators alike, all sitting along the sides of the hill. I remember the sound of skateboards and sliding wheels, cheers and hollers as skaters flew by. Here and there were the individuals you recognized from photos, the seasoned guys doing all things stand-up, rarely dropping slide pucks to the ground. It was truly a spectacular thing to watch.

    The Gel Lab Shred Sessions / Shark’s Log – 170525

    I don’t feel like any of us really chooses to stop skateboarding; life just prioritizes it out. That’s a weighty opening statement, I know, but for each and every one of us, eventually there will come a time where you will be forced to make a choice: maybe not one big sudden decision, but a series of smaller decisions that overall limits the actual activity of skateboarding.

    Loaded Labs Interview with Longboard Envy

    We recently had the chance to chat with the folks at Longboard Envy about the Loaded Labs Menopause project. Check out their introduction below, and be sure to read the full interview here!

    "Product research and development has usually been a highly secretive thing—companies would produce prototypes within their factories, and only reveal the products to inside members. This is a totally founded strategy—many products, in the early days of the development, are flawed and can tarnish the reputation of a company if revealed to the mass public. Sometimes, prototypes are released to the public in the last few months of development, but this is mostly as a marketing strategy and hype-building exercise. That means that realistically speaking, the consumers don’t have a direct influence on an end product.

    Many of us dream to partake in this secret research and development that happens behind the scenes at many skateboard companies- I know that when I was a wee little grom, I slobbered at the thought of being let in on company secrets. If only companies would tell us what happens in their secret Area 51 warehouses…

    Oh wait, Loaded does."

    DockSessionUSA April-May

    This past 4 weeks have been really fun and interesting for DockSession. We made the transition from parking lots games to skating a hill and giving people pointers on how to slide. "Franklin" has been the home of fun sessions for more than 10 years now, it got repaved and pavement was little rough for a while. Now it's perfect.
