Deck of the Week : Real Ishod Pyscho Awesome Wicked Cruiser

Company : Real
Skater : Ishod Wair (SOTY)
Width : 9.0
Construction : This 9 x 32.15 inch monster of a deck uses Real's patented R1 construction to make this a sick pool, mini-ramp, or transition boards for someone trying to pay homage to the old school or just a filthy cruiser for the skater who is embarrassed to have a Billabong (Sector 9) or Penny under there feet but don't like kicking for days on their everyday board. Obviously anything with Ishod's name on it has been jumping off the shelves so come grab this guy quick. Now here's his Fourstar part from Thrasher earlier this year. If you thought it was going to be his SB Chronicles part well then you don't know me well enough.

Shoe of the Week : Fallen Rambler

Company : Fallen
Skater : James Hardy
Weight : 10.4oz (second lightest shoe on wall)
Construction : The Rambler, James Hardy's first signature shoe, features FLX-Flexology midsole technology ramps up the heel cushioning and thins it out towards the toes for total flexibility. It has a vulc sole but the added insole cushion gives it the support of a cup without sacrificing board feel. This shoes is definitely a "skater's" shoe. Now check out why Alabama's favorite skateboarding son, James Hardy, needs both board feel and support as he destroys handrail after handrail.

Clip of the week : DC Presents : Nyjah Fade to Black


This was simply put, the easiest clip of the week to pick ever. I would give anything to hear the conversations between Nyjah and Chris Ray as they went spot to spot. Nowadays when skaters are going to spots to get footage it is the filmer's responsibility to have a database of all the iconic tricks landed at each spot. So when Chris gets his list out and Nyjah says, "has anyone ever kickflip to fs hurricaned this one?", I can only imagine Chris could only laugh and close his little notebook and say "yeah I think that one would be a first". Then Nyjah heads to that ender rail with too many stairs to count and says, "what do you think of a bs lip?" and Chris just continues to laugh and just says, "sure, have at it". Sit back and enjoy 5 minutes of the best skater on the planet showing the world he is not just a "contest skater".

Company : Zoo York
Skater : Brandon Westgate
Width : 8.0
Construction : The Zoo York Westgate Cronan OG Pro Deck 8.0 x 31.94 is constructed from 7-ply maple. This deck was a no brainer this week considering tomorrow we will finally have the new Westgate G6 shoe available from Emerica . We have been pushing this release almost as hard as Brandon pushes down San Francisco streets so after tomorrow you won't have to worry about more Westgate posts but take one last look at the man himselfs classic epicly later'd and you will be reminded why we won't shut up about him or his new shoe.

Shoe of NEXT Week : The Emerica Westgate


Company : Emerica
Skater : Brandon Westgate
Weight : ????
Construction : ????
This shoe has been hidden from us for quite some time and like always the guys over at Emerica have done a terrific job of making the lack of info get us excited instead of annoyed. Anyone who has seen MADE knows that Brandon Westgate changed the way we look at skateboarding and now his new shoe promises to make us change the way we look at skate shoes. Us guys at The Shack can't wait for this thing to show up and we will have a full stock available the second we open up on 11/12/13. Midnight release perhaps??????

Deck of the Week: Deathwish Death-A-Mania

 
Company : Deathwish
Skater : Erik Ellington
Width : 8.125
Construction : Standard 7ply pressed maple deck but with one of my favorite deck graphic series of all time. This series is a tribute to classic WWF stars (not WWE) such as Hulk Hogan, Superfly Jimmy Snooka, George "The Animal" Steele and the one featured showing Erik Ellington as "The Ultimate Warrior" himself beating up on Papa Shango. We had a few of these and the rest are long gone so I feel its a crime we still have this one in stock. Come grab this if your a Deathwish fan, a fan of the Mule, or a nerd like me who misses getting stoked for WrestleMania. Now enjoy Erik Ellington showing why he was the only one worthy of being featured at the Ultimate Warrior in this clip from his Berrics Battle Commander video.

Skater: Jamie Thomas
Width : 9.75
Construction : In anticipation of the new Black Box movie Cold War and the release of Fallen Footwear's The Road Less Traveled we present this 32 inch 7-Ply Pressed Maple Retro Cruiser Deck. If this looks oddly familiar its because this deck was the Battle Commander deck when The Berrics made Jamie Thomas Battle Commander. The deck sold out so quickly Zero decided to bring it back. The board is a must own for a fan of Jamie's, Zero's or anyone how needs a retro shape to kick around on or shred in a bowl or on any of the 50 ramps people seem to be building in ocean county. Now enjoy Jamie's Battle Commander also featuring a handful of other Zero rippers including the one and only Chris Cobra Cole.

clip of the week: Straight insanity at the 2013 Van Doren Finals

Amidst the chaos, baby rioting, and circus that is the US Open of Surfing, a quiet event out of the water certainly made a ton of noise. It may very well have been one of the best bowl events in recent memory. We'll let Thrasher's words on it explain the rest:

Vans doesn't mess around when it comes to throwing a contest and the 2013 Vans US Open will go down in history as not only one of the best, but the event where the new generation of bowl rippers really took control. From Greyson's psycho float to Raven's Rube-a-Dube to Hatchell's trick wizardry, this was one of the wildest finals we've ever seen. And Raney's transfer? Just wait!

RESULTS
1. Ben Hatchell
2. Greyson Fletcher
3. Raven Tershy

the Nyjah Huston shoe is on the horizon

The Nyjah Huston DC signature shoe is on it's way to The Shack Board Shop and should be arriving any day now. We've already received a ton of promotional gear to go along with it for anyone who purchases a pair of the kicks (and maybe we'll even run an Instagram contest of some kind if we have some leftover goodies...).


But while we patiently wait and watch Nyjah on Street League this weekend, check out this clip that Thrasher just dropped on Friday—it's insane. When did skating get to a point that a f/s blunt down an 18 set even seem possible. Or maybe it's just because Nyjah and others have brought it to that level...
