Easily the most talked about release this week comes from Toronto’s own Death From Above 1979. The Canadian dance punk duo returns after a long hiatus with the relentless and pounding first track “Trainwreck 1979”. We checked it out, dug it, and think you will too. 'The Physical World' is out Sept 9th on Last Gang Records.
The Downhill Division came ready to ride at the Maryhill Festival of Speed. Good fortune brought dry roads and fast tail winds making for some impressive pack riding. Congratulations to Connor Ferguson for staying fast and taking 1st in Juniors, and to Jimmy Riha and Ricardo Reis for taking 5th and 6th in Open.
Val Surf throws down for Malibu contest this weekend. Sunshine and a head high south swell is what we are looking forward too. Also hoping for a Sector 9 final with Adam Virs, Ricky Whitlock, Balaram Stack, and Mikey McCabe.
No matter where you send him or what wave he's surfing, Eric Geiselman lives above the lip. Popping off in various locations around the world and laying down a few not-so-rare inverts is what Eric does best.

Returning for its 9th year and with a new location, the Sector 9 Go Skateboarding Day Poker Run was back with a bang... or a bean. The group skated to Robb Field in Ocean Beach to set off the 1st annual Go Skate Day Dodgeball Tournament. Food, giveaways, and fist-fulls of cash were only the beginning as dodgeballers sacrificed their bodies in the name of skateboarding.
