Franky Villani is Pro!

There couldn't be any one more deserving (in our eyes) of getting their name on a board right now... so we're very stoked to help welcome Franky Villani to the pro ranks! 

Check out this amazing and creative clip for Primitive Skateboards and you'll see why!

The Cream in China - Surplus Asian Vacation

We had the great pleasure of joining our homies from Surplus Skate on a tour to Shenzhen, China two months ago.  To say the spots were amazing is understatement - they were incredible!  Untouched marble plazas for days, smooth ground, no skate stopped spots, friendly security guards, delicious food and the warmest hospitality ever made for an unforgettable trip! 

Featuring Moose, Sierra Fellers, JP Oliveira, Jesus Munoz, Will Kromer, Dean Parsons, Ray Macken and Steve McInnes.

My War : Gabriel "Gabbers" Summers

We've said it before, but we'll say it again...  Gabbers is insane.

He lets nothing get in the way of his skateboard when he wants a trick!

Broken ribs, swollen hips or a mental breakdown does nothing to dampen his fire.

Lucky we've got his back - cause he sure gives his body a beatdown on this battle to tame one of Sydney's gnarliest rails!

Watch below to hear how the quest to defeat this epic rail became a real life saga.

Gabbers we salute you!

Long time friend of The Cream Jake Darwen recently won best in show for the Olympus Pro Photographer Show Down and it was no surprise!

Feast your eyes and enjoy 8.5 minutes of some of the best skate photography you'll see today!
