Catalina Classic 2015 (Raw Run)

The 2015 Catalina Classic brought skaters from all over the world out to the downhill island paradise. The Sector 9 Downhill Division rallied a few team pack runs during practice, and damn it was fun!



With the release of his Pro-Wheel, Matt Kienzle, wanted to go out and skate two of his favorite roads. We loaded up the truck and headed to the hills. While Matt makes these hills look mellow, they are not for the faint of heart. Follow along as he sugars his wheels down this steep terrain.

Jeff Budro Pro 36

This year Jeff Budro headed back into the woodshop to sculpt his new 36" pro model board designed for and dedicated to the all-around skater. From the hills to the skatepark and back to the launch ramp, Jeff linked with other Sector 9 team riders to showcase just how versatile this new shape is.
