All A-board the Downhill Skateboarding Tour – Louis Pilloni & Sector Nine

May 17th, 2011 | By | 3,237 Comments

Check out this classic footage of Sector Nine team rider Louis Pilloni acting as your personal tour guide down a winding back-country California road. He gives his lesson with such composure you’d think he was pitching you sham-wow’s on daytime television –not flying down a gravely slope with only a tee shirt between his skin and the asphalt. How does Louis makes it down this crater filled hill worry free from his flesh getting turned into gouda on a grater? Well my friends, it’s because Mr. Pilloni is sporting the latest and greatest shred worthy gear from the boys over at Sector 9. So take some notes, grab yourself some sliding gloves, a safely helmet and one of Sector’s downhill vehicles and you’ll be ready to hitchhike up to your closest summit with the greatest of confidence.

Also make sure to get your S9 gear quick before their free DVD offer runs out! While supplies last buy anything Sector and get the Nine Lives: First Try DVD free with your purchase. This DVD is not available in stores and features nearly an hour and a half of surf, street/slope skate, and skulduggery…

What Do Tequila & Surfboards Have In Common?

May 14th, 2011 | By | 2,923 Comments

Now tequila and surfing have more in common than just Baja trips.
Agave is cleaning up its reputation, as well as cleaning up surfboard manufacturing. Turns out, there’s another side to the cactus, far removed from bad Spring Break memories, whistles and oversized hats. “Que onda,” you slur? Introducing Barry Snyder’s agave shred stick. How much will one of these agave surfboards run you? Think 30 bottles of this moneybag’s “$100” devil’s juice (roughly 150 bottles of the stuff us peasants drink ‘round these parts). At $3K, we’d say you’re about as likely to see one of these in the line-up as you are to see Mr. Youshoulabeenhereyesterday getting barreled on anything over 2ft.
Ah, yet another way agave is making you go green.
