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.

A Red Trolley Show: Blackout Party

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.
