Gaffey St. in San Pedro is the venue for one of our favorite skate events of the year. Skaters of all disciplines descend on the hill for a day of shredding with friends and pros.
The Sector 9 Shred Thane line has made room for one more solid addition... meet the Slick Shoes. This 71mm side-set wheel starts at a 31mm contact patch and will keep its rounded lip to the core. Along with its unique high-performance urethane formula the Slick Shoes will have you smiling and sliding all summer long!
Nope, he isn’t on the WCT this year but his own tour seems to be very productive. That means that we have been seeing some top-shelf edits from Eric all year as he circles the planet. Flip out on his latest morsel...
The 5th Annual California Roots Music & Arts Festival has come and gone but the memories and good times will live on. Bob your head to the campsite jams of KBong and friends while taking a look at the festival through the eyes of the 9. A special thanks to all of the bands and musicians, the organizers, the fans, and everyone who rode their skateboard or bike to the festival. See you all next year and don't forget to check out the photos from our festival lensman Tucker Hall here: https://www.facebook.com/tucker.hall.98/media_set?set=a.10203206545995992.1073741825.1578600365
Ground control to Sector 9, the Carbon Flight has landed. 5-plies of maple sandwiched between carbon fiber and fiberglass has never looked so good. This board comes complete with everything you need to glide across any paved surface... and some unpaved. Watch as the Downhill Division puts it through its paces.
On the heels of the Catalina Island Classic, our old friend, and Grind TV’s colorful character Chris Cote reached out to us about the current state of downhill. He wanted to get caught up with the scene, so we sat him down with Louis Pilloni. Chris asked, Louis answered; get a load of these two.
Returning back to the island getaway for a lucky 3rd year meant that the Downhill Division had one thing on their mind... win everything! The competition was fierce, the party was legendary, and when the dust settled local bomber AJ Haiby had claimed the crown! Congrats to all of the riders who made the journey and raced their wheels off!
