New team rider BOB BURNQUIST grinded a rail into the grand canyon. The superman dives off the end, does he survive the death defiying leap? You’ll have to wait for the video to see the answer.. GEOFF ROWLEY has been on a wild skate/drinking bender across the states and back at least ten times in the last three weeks, filming and damaging himself inside and out for the video..the pain has just begun…and no prisoners will be taken….unless they are female. RUNE GLIFBERG jetted of to china with BOB for some skateboarding antics at the worlds biggest skatepark in Shanghai. RUNE and LANCE MOUNTAIN have been on a 24-7 mission to skate the combi pool at THE BLOCK in Orange and the VANS/PROTEC Pool Party Contest. Congrats to Lance who took fouth in the Masters division while Rune charged into second place in the Pro division winning $15,000 for his efforts.
