Congrats to Luan Oliveira for winning Tampa Pro yesterday! We watched the live stream from the Chomp Ollie Tour at MACBA. What an insane final!
Also congrats to Brian Schaefer & the SkatePark of Tampa crew on 20 Years! I know my 4 Tampa Am visits back in day were some of the best contests i had ever been to!

At the start of last week, we picked up the truck that I will call home for the next 7 weeks just south of London. Here is a photo from the workshop right before we hit the road to Barcelona for the start of the Nike SB ‘Chomp Ollie Tour’. This old FedEx truck was gutted, painted, and turned into mobile pizza party with kicker and sofa for your skating enjoyment in celebration of the release of the new Koston 2. The only thing our day was missing was Xzibit jumping out and telling us our truck had been pimped… heck, I would have even settled for Tim Westwood!
If you are in one of the cities we are visiting in the next 7 weeks, come out and say hi! I will have a few free give aways for my blog and twitter followers along the way (except in Italy, I am not on those stops). On the final stop in Berlin, I will have a pair of the Koston 2 for someone as well. I hope you like pink!
If you have not seen the Koston 2 commercial yet, you need to check it out! It is way too good!
The first stop in Barcelona is a wrap! We are on the road tomorrow and will see everyone in Madrid later this week. All of the spanish SB guys will be there and it should be an awesome time! Free pizza, skating with the homies, and the chance to win new kicks… sounds like a good day to me!
Follow us for more of the adventure on the road and hit us up on all the social media outlets. We have plenty of travel time ahead of us between stops and look forward to your tweets and photos!
See you in a city near you soon!

Amazing job on the article Sam & Hillary! It was so sick!
Is 2013 the year? We shall see…
Another Koston 2 ‘Inspired By’ clip I worked on went online in the last days. The fakie tre was a battle for Fran to get but so worth it in the end. 5 Minutes after he landed it, the cops came on the second day.
Lucky for us, the cops did not want to give us tickets because they were mad at the Spanish Government for the recession. If they were getting pay cuts, why should they do their jobs fully too. After being told to go home to our own countries, we got our passports back and we were off. Barcelona… you have to love it sometimes.
