Pretty cool. Check it out.
Just announced at the Apple WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) is Apple’s new operating system, which moves on from cats to inspirational places in California, the first being OS X Mavericks. Valhalla’s vote for the next: OS X Del Mar Skateranch. In another nod to Action Sports, during the demo for the new OS, Apple’s Craig Federighi opened up the Surfer Magazine website.
Rick McCrank is one of the raddest humans on earth. Thanks AWSM
We like a little bit of everything music-wise over here, everything from The Black Keys to DK to Tribe and a little bit of (almost) everything in between. A definite standout favorite is Fatboy Slim, who’s whole Ultra Music Festival set is up above. Might have to try to find a reason to go to Miami next spring…
There’s a pretty interesting article on Daft Punk over on Pitchfork. A little history but mostly them talking about making their latest album, Random Access Memories (RAM). Worth a read if you’re interested in them, their mystique or music in general.
Max Jenke is a former pro-shred & one of the founders of Endeavor Snowboards. In case you didn’t know, Endeavor kills it on the design front. I’ve talked with him a few times & he’s a really nice guy. He’s up for a $100k grant in Cannuckian land (aka Canada), all he needs is votes. Trying not to get too into it but a vote for him isn’t necessarily a vote for Max or Endeavor or even snowboarding, but a vote for all of action sports. Vote away, then tell your friends and then vote some more!
Have you ever sat in an Aeron? If you have, you know 15% is all the more reason to invest in your happiness and buy one. If you haven’t, well, you either hate your back or don’t work very much. How about an Eames Lounge Chair, on sale? Really?

My friend / pseudo-brother Michael Sleeter (aka @sleetdawg) flying around the Pala track on a 2-stroke mx bike. Sounds so good…
Our client HRE Wheels (who also happens to make the best automotive wheels on earth, we can’t vouch for other planets) has a little gallery up on LA Times. Nothing major but it’s a little behind-the-scenes look at how their wheels are made, mostly from scratch in their Vista manufacturing plant. Check it out Made in California: HRE Performance Wheels
Valhalla’s latest series for World Industries released recently. The Black Light series is done in full fluorescent inks with a glow in the dark ink over the top. The images above show the daytime graphic to the right and the “night time” graphic to the right. Pretty stoked on these, I have my sample set on the way & can’t wait to get them. Available at your local skateshop now!
