Clip of the Week : Ed Templeton Epicly Later'd

This is a little late but I still feel like there's a lot of you who haven't seen the new Epicly Later'd on one of skateboarding's all time greats, Ed Templeton. We posted an Epicly Later'd of Brandon Westgate almost a year ago but this mini documentary of the Tempster is our favorite Pat O'Dell has ever done. Ed is a personality like no other in skateboarding. An artist/photographer/skater/businessman who is possibly the coolest person on the planet due to the fact that hes just always his weird unique self. This 6 part documentary is an awesome example of how it is possible for people who stay true to themselves and never succumb to industry trends or pander to new markets will always have a place in skateboarding. Simply put Ed Templeton is the man and if you don't already know that, watch all 6 of these now. (after masters coverage ends of course, GO KUCH)

Deck of the Week : Creature Give 'em Hell

Company : Creature
Skater : Stu Graham
Width : 9.0 yeah thats right, 9.0
Construction : This 9.0 8ply 33inch long behemoth of a skateboard is the board of choice of Stu Graham and more importantly The Shack's own, Jake Brown. I don't need to tell you that boards are trending wider and Jake and all the dudes at Creature are the ones leading the big board charge. This board specifically is not only wide, however. It is also part of the fastest selling series that our fastest selling brand has ever issued. The "Give em Hell" series is a sick homage retro bomber pilots done in a way only the CSFU crew can do. Now watch why Stu needs every bit of the 9 inches this board offers in the old Creature clip.
