Print Ad / Wallpaper Posted by Francis on Thursday, November 15th, 2012

Here’s another wallpaper from our ad archives. This one ran in issue 7 of The Albion and features one of those setups you jokingly point out to your friends without thinking anybody would ever actually do it… unless Gary Young happens to be around. Jump off the roof and grind on that rail? Sure, no problem.

I bet after pulling this clean, he played a 100+ point word on somebody in Words With Friends. Photo by Justin Kosman.

Adam Banton Update Posted by Francis on Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

This photo of Adam just came through our e-mail. After hanging with us in Palm Springs, Adam dipped down to sunny San Diego for the rest of the week to get even more riding done. He clocked in some footage and photos with the Kosman, so keep your eyes peeled for that. In the mean time, hit him up on twitter and keep him company on his drive home to Arizona!
