Dave Bachinsky has been gaining more and more reputation for his skills on a mini ramp. In his newest video, “The Formula” featured on The Berric’s website, Dave throws down some tricks we have yet to see be landed on a mini ramp. Not to mention, we couldn’t be more stoked that all of these tricks we’re done on an OC Ramps half pipe. If you feel like stepping up and building yourself a new, professional grade ramp or rail of any sort, check out the awesome selection of OC Ramp’s products on our website. In the meantime, watch the video and prepare to be amazed.
After a throw down of epic proportions yesterday, Ryan Decenzo has anchored his spot in the 2014 SLS Nike SB World Tour. Yesterday’s round was one of the more intense, hammer dropping rounds we’ve seen in a long time. To put how close this round was into perspective, after placing sixth, second and taking the win in Los Angeles, Decenzo finalized with a total score of 266. Greg Lutzka, who had been neck and neck with Decenzo, walked away with a total score of 265, one point behind. However close it was, nobody can deny that Decenzo deserved it. After throwing down a flawless nollie heelflip nose slide shuv-it out in the control section as well as a massive 360 flip down the 5 stair in the impact section, Decenzo hands down proved his worthiness of the 2014 Street League Tour. However, Ryan is now up against the best of the best in skateboarding on Friday. Legends such as Paul Rodriguez, Chris Cole and Nyjah Huston are as good as it gets in the Street League Tour, and we can’t wait to see how the finals unfold.
After much debate across the internet forums and Instagram feeds, Paul Rodriguez has officially announced that he no longer skates for Plan B Skateboards. In an interview for Power 106FM, a Los Angeles radio station, P-Rod explains that, “I’m in a point in my career where I kind of want to take some ownership of myself.” After 8 years of skating for Plan B Skateboards, Paul clarified that, “It’s been great, everyone on the team is family, it’s all love and there was never a falling out.” Rumors of his transition away from Plan B Skateboards started on Stop 5 of the 2013 Street League Skateboarding Series, when Paul showed up with a spray painted deck, rather than his signature model Plan B deck. Although we’re sad to see long term relations such as P-Rod and Plan B end, we couldn’t be more excited to see what Paul’s next move is.

Girls Skateboards has announced that two of their key riders will unfortunately be taking their talents elsewhere. On May 16th, Brian Anderson put in his official letter of resignation from Girl, not long after Jason Dill and Anthony Van Engelen made their announcement that they would be leaving Alien Workshop. On May 21, Alex Olson came out and informed everybody of his leaving as well. It’s still unclear as to where everybody’s going, however we wish them the best with their career. Hopefully we’ll be seeing a few new skater owned companies emerge out of the recent events!
