Did we hear you're looking to do some mega huge slides?! Our team has been putting these new wheels to the test lately and leaving the hill completely happy. This isn't just some re-hyped urethane poured into a different shape, its a completely new formula designed with "sliding for days" in mind. The offset core combined with the shape of the wheel leads to a perfect coning and a very high mid-wear performance life to these new skateboard tires.
Sector 9 Skateboard Co. is proud to introduce our latest Artist Series collaboration with renowned street artists MEGGS. Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, his street art and gallery works are recognized internationally for his unique blend of graffiti and fine arts. MEGGS' appreciation for comic book art, sci-fi fantasy, skateboarding, graffiti culture, heavy metal, and punk rock music are at the core of what inspires his work, and that inspiration can be found throughout our offering. We are stoked to release these limited edition boards in collaboration with such a talented, humble and rad artist, and hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
We're proud to introduce Jackson Shapiera's Pro Model, the Hijack. This deck is the culmination of several different iterations and prototypes that we can recall making here at Sector 9 headquarters. It is rare to have a team rider be so critical on the finer points of the board shape, and even rarer for him to take a step back and realize they have gone too far in search of that perfect feel. Apart from the shape, Jackson also explored several concave molds. He finally landed on one with humps in the at the front for your toes to push against and keep you locked in, a non-intrusive W in the middle for the added strength and smaller humps at the back to help with the board feel.
In Part 2 of the Sector 9 AZ Trip meet the crew and get a look into how 15 guys travel across the desert. Fast skating in some of the most picturesque landscapes Arizona has to offer combined with 3 days of antics and pranks, you get a dirty motorhome... we still can't believe we didn't get fined.
The Barge is elegant in it's simplicity and functionality as a downhill board. A 9-ply maple construction, rocker drop pocket, uniform riding platform, and just enough tail pop to make it a freeride dream. Riders had been custom shaping and asking for bricks like this when they came to visit the woodshop, so we figured it was warranted to add one to the line. It is great as a do-anything board, and though the features are few, they really shine in their own regard as you push the limits of downhill, freeride, or red curb sessions.
For the 6th annual California Roots Music & Arts Festival the Sector 9 Rock Team linked up with Miles Doughty of Slightly Stoopid for some afternoon acoustic jams. Miles posted up in the Sector 9 Safety Meeting and treated us to some tracks off the new album "Meanwhile Back At The Lab", which is out now!
Load em' up and ship em' out! The Sector 9 Downhill Division piled 15 guys into an RV and hit the road towards Arizona in search of deserted mountain roads. The landscape was perfect and the pack riding was legendary. Enjoy part 1 of the Downhill Division's 4-wheeled attack on Arizona!
