Taking the trolley got a little sketchier when local swamp rockers Blackout Party teamed up with Sector 9 and Karl Strauss Brewing Co. to get a little dirty for A Trolley Show. Its a bunch of San Diego originals going off the rails to the wrong side of the tracks. Look out for the band's new record, ‘Float On Towards Our Doom’, and the new Karl Strauss x Sector 9 collaboration deck.
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.

We're very proud to introduce Matt Kienzle's first pro wheel! We took Matt's favorite secret 65mm slide wheels and dialed it in just for him. We started with his favorite urethane for leaving sugary lines, trimmed the edge of the wheel to the core for smoother slides, and chamfered that same edge for ease into slides. Throw that into the new Cosmic core, bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees and you've got one kick ass slide wheel.
