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?????? Now here's a reminder of why we are so stoked that this monster is dropping his long anticipated 2nd pro shoe.

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.
