Parts and crafts DIY Skateboarding in Long Beach

Al Partanen has an insatiable need to skate concrete and is able see the promise of a spot in some unlikely places.  So it was natural that Parts and crew teamed up with Levis and threw some bags of cement onto a wall and came up with an amazing spot that now can be shredded by the greater skate community. Hopefully the spot will stick around and get added to in the near future.  

Bring on the DIY spots

Ambrose Kenny-Smith in the new Steady Vid

Ambrose has been down for The Cream since day dot.  Back in the day he was a ripping skater who liked to play a little music on the side but nowadays he's a full blown rock star playing all over the world with two bands while ripping harder then ever!

We're hyped on his latest part in the new Steady Vid shared with one of the main men behind the vid and also the one and only Jack Crook.  Ambrose's ender is one mean feat of dexterity, poise and big balls. So sick!
