Madars Apse Skates Latvia with Nick Garcia and Pat Duffy

Madars Apse returned to his homeland of Latvia recently to share with his friends Nick Garcia and Pat Duffy the amazing spots, landscape and hospitality of his native country.  By the looks of things they had a lot of fun and did much more then skate... Para gliding, camping, eating, drinking and sight seeing rounded out a trip across a country not regularily known for it's skateboarding.

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.
