YOSEMITE & THE PROCESS

Half Dome
There are tons of incredible National Parks throughout the US, and I would highly recommend going to as many as possible. I’ve been trying to go to Yosemite once a year for a good portion of my life and every time I make the journey I’m never disappointed. This years trip was a little shorter than normal but even at 3 days it was enough to rejuvenate and to get inspired by natures beauty around us. I brought along with me The Process and a couple of sample cruiser shapes and rolling around Yosemite valley is one of the best things ever.

Introducing The Process: The Creative Journey Starts Here

Inspired by the creative journey – an idea conceived then put through production and editing until manifested in a tangible form – The Process drop through longboard’s graphic features multiple geometric shapes filtering down to a simplistic end.
Whatever maneuver you can imagine, The Process is the perfect board for you to push the limits of carving, sliding, and cruising. It’s also great for beginners because we understand that learning to skate, or improving, can be a process.

Skateboarding with your kids is something relatively new to parents, but as the generations of skateboarders get older it’s becoming more common to see family packs of shredders at the skatepark or skating a flat bar in the cul de sac. This Father’s Day, let’s make “going skating” the new “playing catch” with Dad. Find everything you need to get the Rad Dad in your life set up HERE.

THE SUM



We have a lot of good friends in Portland, Oregon, and pretty much all of them are crazy talented. One of them just blew our minds away with this video and his new Jewelry Collection 0002. It’s bonkers. I know this has nothing to do with skateboarding but its too epic not to post up. Check out all the products at TheSum.Us
