  • Presenting the Loaded Ballona

    SHRIMP OF A BOARD. WHALE OF A GOOD TIME.

    Agile, compact, and light, the Loaded Ballona elevates the mini cruiser experience. Meticulously sculpted curvatures result in a unique mini “longboard” with tuned steering and responsive handling. Perfect for urban commuting, people slalom, driveway slashing, pump tracks, and skatepark flow, the Ballona is small in stature yet colossal in character.

    In a tight time crunch, three days was all we had to film for the release video of the Loaded Mata Hari. This short time frame forced us into dealing with the hardships of the situations that arose during the shoot, no matter the circumstances.

  • Outlaw at the Snake

    Writing & Photography by Ari "Shark" Chamasmany

    It has always been a pillar of the LA skate-scape. A fabled roadway that has not only served as a benchmark for the Southern California downhill skateboarding scene, but also as a testing platform for some of the most iconic skate products to ever to grace the discipline. A hallowed stretch of asphalt that riders have journeyed the world over to skate. Something of a high bar, a slithering ribbon of road that demands respect, skill, and courage. The Snake, Lookout, Mulholland, whatever you choose to refer to it as, has come to represent a certain mark of downhill skateboarding prowess.
