Halloween with the SlipMOB

Halloween came and went and some people went to parties, some went trick or treating, some dressed all crazy and some stayed in and chose not to participate.

A couple of Slip guys had been talking about their costumes weeks, even months before the day. In the aforementioned conversations they all talked about parties, shows, and other fun things to do in costume on the night of Halloween.

The ideas these guys had for costumes seemed almost too good to waste on a random party, so they decided to make the event a little more memorable doing what we all love....


Moving around in these costumes was hot, tiring, difficult, but ENJOY!

Lurking Around Town

Taylor picked up a hand held "flip" camera a couple of months ago. He usually sets it up in some really obscure area and so no one knows its running. This is Taylor lurking at his finest! Edited by Kenny O!

Dylan Darby

I'm sure most of you around town have either noticed a lack of Dylan's presence or have just heard about the kid and his regularly injured body. I mean, the kid filmed half his SLIP video part hurt so I know you may not have thought much of it.

However, Dylan was out for awhile with serious injuries this time, he was en-casted by the ceres skatepark on Go Skate Day and upon healing from that he was struck by a car while riding a dirt-bike. All the while the deadline for filming the next SLIP video (see The Great Disaster) has been looming while the rest of the SLIP team has been steady stacking.

Dylan's first day back showed everyone that the kid's abilities and confidence are not shaken in the slightest, this is some throwaway stuff that he got while on the mission to get the goods.

Manny Mania 09

A couple months back Kingpin Skate Shop along with The Company, and American Icon got together and hosted a Maniacal Manny Masterpiece! They built a couple little boxes and had some crazy set ups for combos and such. A good two-wheeled time was had by all!

The little guys division went to Steffan Moussa with a nosemanny blunt and nosemanny front blunt thrown down on the A-frame. Pretty beastly. The big boys game went to Mark Dillon for his overall de-construction of the course with two wheels tied behind his back. Best trick had Randy Leal doin a halfcab nosemanny pivot to switch manny on the A-frame in a dance move shuffle that made everyone scratch their heads.

Shit went off, money got won, boards got got, and tech deck pinatas are whats up!

Oh yeah! Riding Shotgun was there and didn't feel like filming but did anyways so don't complain that we missed something and be glad you get coverage at all! PEACE!

Raise Hell 3!!

So the footage from Raise Hell 3 at the ranch, (held in June) in Escalon is finally posted! Dylan made it in the footage early on with a bigflip (@1:17) and Kenny got some slams in the intro and a few makes near the end (@3:59) All in all it was a great contest, with a great atmosphere and can't wait to go back next year!

The bowl contest was posted as well under Ricky Flip's youtube account found here:

Both contest videos made it to lowcard's website and is worth checking out here:

Local shit like this is off the hook! Hope tomorrow's event can go off similarly to this!

Ivyn's Halloween Treat

Ivyn is probably one of the nicest dudes in the Stockton skate scene. Always cordial, always smiling, and always letting everyone know they're killing it. Ivyn has also been contributing quite a bit as of late, which just gives him more points on the nice guy list. Watch, learn, enjoy, and maybe even smile; like Ivyn would.

50 to hippie? 50 to jam? DOPE!
