Spring 15′ Product Review

 

It looks like Phil the Groundhog saw his shadow and that means 6 more weeks of winter. That doesn’t mean crap to the skateboard industry cause they are putting out of some of their best products for Spring. Over at True, we got a chance to check out some of the product and this is what we think of it:

 

Cosmos Creations:

In 2004 in the kitchen of a culinary artisan. After quickly becoming a local sensation, it went from the kitchen to a 5,000 square foot facility, producing over a dozen varieties of the unique caramel treat and gaining distribution across the state of Oregon. Cosmos has flavors from Salted Caramel, Sea Salt & Butter, Cracked Pepper and much more but they also have ingredients you can pronounce.  If your going on a long road trip to escape the weather your in, make sure you have a bag of Cosmos Creations with you.  http://www.cosmoscreations.com/store/

 

 

Habitat Skateboards:

 

IMG_444373005

 

With Habitat making a big move to San Diego and joining forces with Tum Yeto to distribute their products. They still kept the same team and turn some of their top Ams to the pro ranks like Alex Davis & Marius Syvanen. I have never shred on a Habitat board before and I heard nothing but good things for example: You will never lose your pop and they last for a long time. I got my hands on one and I will have to say they were right.  http://www.habitatbrand.com/

Gold Goons Premiere

 

FullSizeRender (20)

 

 

On July 11th 2015, at the La Paloma Theatre in Encinitas, Ca. the new Gold Wheels video premiered “GOONS”.  I remember watching the first Gold video back in Fl, at a homies skate shop called “Disorder” that was located on St. Pete Beach and my mind was blown than.  Once I heard  that Gold is dropping their second video and premiering  it the next day in Encinitas. I was stoke, I went to the premiere with a open mind. I will say Gold did it again,  It blew my mind away.  I was stoke to see Schmatty Chaffin have the opener cause he deserved it. With having a huge team, I liked how they gave everyone a montage and giving the shop flow kids a clip in the video casue I was hyped on that. The parts that stood out in my mind and was hyped on is “Rodrigo TX  & Chris Troy”. Those dudes killed it. Hit your local skate shop up or iTunes cause this is a video you must have in your skateboard collection. - TEZ
