So I saw this video before I even knew who Peter Kell was and I didn’t know shit about going fast on a skateboard. Although Peter went 95 mph he got lots of hate because he was in the draft of the truck meaning no wind hitting you so it is way way less gnarly. Well this video was filmed when Peter was also very new to the whole DH skateboard scene.
Well he went to make a rebuttal video of himself being pulled by a car holding onto a wake board tow rope. Well he hit 80 and….. I guess you’ll have to watch to find out. – Leecifer

After finding the warehouse, parking, showing the bouncers the California drivers license I arrived to a pretty rad scene and saw a few familiar faces. The first thing I noticed was the keg to the left and the band preparing to play. In the middle of the warehouse with skaters flying by was a long table full of food. After dodging some skaters and scoping the whole make your own burrito situation (which was delicious) I quickly realized that the bowl was going to be the spot to watch all the shredders. More and more and more familiar faces kept coming through the door.

The party was awesome whether you wanted to get your shred on, or your lurk on. Saw many familiar faces and many new ones. Had a great time. Thanks Marcus Bandy and Wheelbase magazine for everything!

The SDDRL (San Diego Downhill Race League) crew met back up September 11 at Talega for a fun day of racing.
Mason McGhee leads Roger Jones through the hairpin left, 1 turn above the finish line
Races held at Talega always end up extremely exciting and this day was no different. The course is very technical and you are bound to see many riders wipe out into the dirt on a few turns. You also have to be able to do heelside and toeside predrifts to be able to compete here. The race was being started at the very top of the road. The first portion of the course was a chute which offered a good drag race until they got into the hairpin portion of the race course. There were four turns that riders had to navigate through. First riders went through a 90 degree right hand turn which then dropped into the big hairpin left where most riders slid off the course. After the left it dropped down into a hairpin right with the finish line just around the corner.

The race was held in two divisions. A grom division and an open division. Riders in both divisions pushed their limits.

Roger Jones did have a bad crash and the paramedics were called as a precaution. He was later released from the hospital with no more than a headache.
Thanks to everyone who came out and made this such a rad event!- Leecifer
