Smile On Your Brother

ELEMENT EDEN ADVOCATE AMBER B. DESIGNS SKATEBOARDS FOR CHARITY

smile-21

Smile on Your Brother: It’s more than just a sweet-sounding name, although we do think it’s pretty sweet. Smile on Your Brother is a skate art (literally, skateboard art) exhibition that features creations from international artists, including Element Eden Advocate Amber B (shown above). Besides offering up the obvious eye candy, the shows help to support disadvantaged youth by contributing skateboards, providing them with an outlet for constructive freedom and helping to push them to achieve their goals.

Dancing on the Surfer Poll

Next pro / Dancing with the Stars contestant? Ry Craike.

Ah, the Surfer Poll…as always, so predictable, yet so predictably awesome. I won’t bore you with the details, so here are some abbreviated highlights from last night’s Surfer Poll Awards in Anaheim, Ca: Multiple mentions of Alana Blanchard’s ass-ets. Dane Reynold’s acceptance speech consisted of thanking his girlfriend for giving him vitamin C and Quiksilver for the stickers. Kelly Slater won. Cory Lopez got tube ride of the year for his never-ending African mystery left in 5’5″ x 19 1/4″ Redux. And apparently, if you’re from West Oz, you’re flipping awesome. No surprises, but tons of radness. To quote Ry Craike mid-DC Shoes bus dance-off, “this is the best night of my life!”
