DAKINE Product Review


photo (1)



I have used alot bags for traveling. I even used a trash bag for my clothes and etc cause a cat pissed on my bag. I have moved up these days by using Dakine bags that are essential to your everyday or even special occassion uses. For the student in need of space for a laptop, and some books, clean and managable space for traveling or us skateboarders that need to carry some extra product on a trip it does the job. For a light-weight bag with many different styles for every individual Dakine backpacks are a great pick. – W. Gabourel



Cam Caddie Review

P1030165 (2)


The Cam Caddie Scorpion is a must have for all skateboarders that are interested in filming. They sent out their Cam Caddie Starter Kit, which includes; the Scorpion EX handle (includes mount for the Scorpion EX cheese plate/tripod mount), one accessory shoe, one accessory wing, one 1/4-20 flashner and one mounting knob. The scorpion is designed to give stabilization and the same feel as the Sony VX camera to other cameras. The great thing about the Cam Caddie Scorpion is that you are not limited to using just one type of camera. GoPro, DSLR’s, camcorders, and even iPhones can be used with this filming tool.

While there are a lot of cheap knock off brands that resemble the Cam Caddie, they do not have the same quality or versatility that the Cam Caddie Scorpion offers. The  Cam Caddie scorpion has so many different ways it can be used. Check out some of these photos for various Cam Caddie set ups:




We tested the scorpion using a DSLR and GoPro. The handle allows you to comfortably film, easily get any angle you need, and it provides amazing stability to the footage. To see a few of the clips that we filmed using the Cam Caddie Scorpion, click hereCam Caddie provides everything from the basics needed to film skateboarding, to professional level gear. I strongly recommend checking them out.

Matix Product Review

Have you ever bought clothes from Gap, Old Navy, and any other clothes store in the mall. Don’t they fit or the style is whack cause that is how they feel and look to me. When I buy a pair of Old Navy jeans they fit weird but for a example: Matix just dropped their spring 2013 line ( Gripper Twill shorts, Lomax Button up, Helloha Tee, and a High ‘ N Dry Snapback ) and let me tell you they fit perfect and look very clean. My opinion  is that skateboard brands get us but non skateboards brands don’t. Its just funny how the fashion world tries to copy our swag. I mean we set the trend in the fashion world eyes.  The next time your out and about watch what the fashion world puts out cause you will get a little laugh out of it. – t.zam





Lame Brotherhood Clothing Review





Lame Brotherhood Clothing is a skater owned and operated company from Cleveland, Ohio. The owner, being an African American skateboarder during the late 90’s and early 2000’s, was called every name in the book by people in his neighborhood, and “Lame” happened to be one of them. The “Brotherhood” is a group of the owner’s close friends whom are like brothers to him. Their logo, called the Hallu, which is short for hallucination, represents creativity and nurturing your dreams into reality.

Lame Brotherhood Clothing sent some product for our review. The product is top quality, comfortable, and has great designs. The crewneck sweatshirt is perfect for Fall and Spring skating while the tee shirt is very light and easy to move in, which is great for those hot summer days. Since they are a skater owned company, they know what skateboarders look for within their clothing, and LB nailed it.

They’re looking forward to putting out a full length video featuring their team riders. The team has some heavy hitters including Amani Newring, Justin Laganson, Isaiah Johnson, and Mike Freiberg. They plan on dropping the video during the Fall 2013.

Check out some of their footage:

HUF Product Review

Joey Pepper is one of the most underrated skateboarder. He is known as the “Beast of the East” by his powerful skateboarding on the streets. Joey has rode for some of the best companies out-there ( Element, Aesthetics, Elwood, and Zoo York ).  He has had a great year so far  riding for Expedition, Bones Swiss Bearings, Imperial Motion, and dropping the most recent video part being “REMIX” part from Expedition.  Only thing that has been missing in Joey’s skateboard life is someone giving him his own shoe. Spring 2013, HUF Footwear answered Joey’s dream by giving him his first pro shoe “The Pepper Pro”. Grads Joey cause you deserve it! – T.Zam

With the big East Coast blizzard and the West Coast getting cold days. In the south, we don’t know about cold days. Our winter last for one day, maybe a week but its not cold enough to wear  a heavy jacket, 2 pair of socks, 6 shirts, sweatpants over a pair of jeans. I will say when it does drop below 50 degrees, the Lockdown hoodie has keep my ass warm on those days zam
