    Worst Dad Ever Kicks Son Down Halfpipe (Video)

    Look out, presumptive 2014 Dad of the Year nominees: A new dark horse candidate is making waves on the scene—waves caused by his kicking his six-year-old son down a skate park halfpipe. The video was taken at a Jacksonville, Florida, skate park, posted on Instagram, and is now being investigated by the Department of Children […]

    Last week marked the introduction of SIMPLE Mobile’s interesting and inspirational new web series, Change Your Game, hosted by Levi Maestro–the man behind his own successful web series, Maestro Knows. The first installment focused on Levi’s quest to seek out–and help out–a street artist named Push, by giving him something he’d never had before: his own gallery show. Well, Change […]

    Amazing Video: A Deer Crashes Into Downhill Skateboarder Going 40 MPH

    The organizers of the Buffalo Bill Downhill Bloodspill longboard skateboarding race just can’t catch a break. The event just keeps getting interrupted by strange occurrences. Last year the competition was cut short without a winner when a helicopter carrying a film crew crashed near the race course. Luckily everyone on board escaped without serious injury, […]

    27 Examples of Awesome Skateboard Art

    Skateboarding isn’t only a sport. It’s also a sport, but first and foremost it’s a way of life with its very own ethos. And this ethos hold that every aspect of skating presents an opportunity for expression. Thus fashion, language, music, and design are as important to skateboarding as gear and performance, which is why, […]

    Rob Dyrdek Hits Girl in the Face Twice with Dodgeball (Video)

    The video you’re about to see is a year old. But it’s new to me, so maybe it’s new to you. And anyway, it’s awesome. Here’s the background: pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek has his own show on MTV in which he basically just does really fun and sometimes extreme stuff in this big warehouse type […]

    25 Sweet Skateboarding GIFs

    Skateboarding is an interesting sport. It’s really fun to watch if the person doing it is really, really good. Like, X Games good. But it’s super boring to watch if they’re not that good. (About as exciting to watch as an old rerun of Murder, She Wrote.) There is, however, an exception to this general […]

    Picture Of The Day: Extreme Senior

    In this picture, Tony Hawk shows he’s still got it. Okay, I’m just messing with you. That’s not Tony Hawk. Well, I don’t think it’s Tony Hawk. The skateboarding legend is old, but he’s not that old. Besides, he’s too busy cheating on his wife with his best friend’s wife to be skateboarding. No, this […]

    Picture Of The Day: Skateboarding At Its Sexiest!

    This image literally has me at a loss for words.  I mean, what else is there to say, besides that fact that this woman may not only be the sexiest thing in the world to ever step foot onto a skateboard, but she may also be the sexiest thing in the world, period! A gorgeous, […]

    Tony Hawk Can Still Execute A 900 At The Age Of 43 (Video)

    It is awfully incredible to see a 41-year-old Mariano Rivera close out games for the Yankees, or a 41-year-old Dwayne Roloson stop pucks for the Tampa Bay Lightning and lead them to the Western Conference semi-finals, but perhaps the most impressive feat accomplished by an athlete in their 40s came from Linkoping, Sweden.  That was […]

    Picture Of The Day: Yo Skater…

    Those dudes at the North Vancouver Parks Department must be pretty fly to come up with something like this.  After all, the skater kids may not want to hear what their elders have to say, but perhaps they will at least listen to one of their own…or a sign that seems like it was written […]

    Picture Of The Day: Wrong Board Dude

    Wrong climate my skater friend… Someone should probably tell this guy that tis the season to put that skateboard away and get yourself a snowboard.  Either that, or you can simply move to sunny California, where skateboarding season runs 365 days a year.  Sure, he may want to believe that skateboarding season never ends in […]

    Picture Of The Day: Sweet Skatepark

    Eat your heart out Tony Hawk! These must be the coolest Budgies around.  Not only can they skate, but they even took over their owner’s sink, and transformed it into their own mini skatepark.  Seems like quite the innovative idea, as long as they can avoid that pothole we call a drain.
