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.
Thank you to the city of San Diego for repaving the hill in front of our warehouse. A regular day of work turned into an epic afternoon of skating. Sector 9 product developer Josh Rolf, team manager Louis Pilloni, and team rider Matt Kienzle, take the first runs on the fresh asphalt.
We are proud to welcome pro surfer and epic dude, Alain Riou to our European sales team... he will be representing Sector 9 and its associated brands throughout Europe. Get a feel for what this guy is all about in this Surfline feature on one of his heaviest wipeouts.
9'er, Rusty Long, took all of his travels from around the world and put them into a very well thought out book. Big waves, big guns, and even bigger cojones are on tap throughout. Get a copy today!
See all the photos from the release party here on Surfline.
Downhill Division teammates Jeff Budro and Louis Pilloni go head-to-head at the MuirSkate Downhill Disco. Ramps, banks, and other obstacles made for a challenging course but not enough to keep Jeff from taking 3rd place!
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.
