Bern Baker Watts Skate Helmet

We kill it with Bern Snow Helmets, so we thought we would bring in the skate versions. Already had a couple go out the Door. Tyler is too busy doing infoweb work to go outside for shots, so I made him put them on at the computer. Safety first we always say. Who need Virus protection when you are wearing one of these.
3 great colorways available today!

These all came with green wheels that look great on these. If you haven't ridden an Arbor, Stop in and take one for a spin around the store. they are awesome.These are a great value at only $179.

Congrats Robert Koss!

Robert Koss came out in support of a local skatepark at Herndon's Skateboard day. He was the lucky winner of a new Alpine skate shop deck! We would love to thank everyone who came out to support the town of Herndon, and we look forward to having a new skatepark in our backyard!

Burton 2010 Ladies North Star Fleece

Kath stopped in the store this afternoon so I asked her to model this new Burton Hoodie. She put on some frogskins and struck a pose for me. This is Burton 2010 North Star Fleece in true black. Super clean pattern that is fun and goes with most anything. It has a cute Burton hit on the back and is a moisture moving piece. Perfect for cool evenings and as a layering fleece this winter.

Burton 2010 Freestyle boot white/elephant

Last year I made the mistake of ordering the Freestyle boot in the Basketball colorway. I learned my lesson. It was not received well, and is still sitting on the boot wall. (it's reduced if you are looking for a great deal!)
This season I ordered the freestyle in this BANGER colorway. The white elephant colorway shown here is absolutely sick. Reminiscent of some sneakers I have stacked in my closet, This boot is a sneakerheads dream. Oh, and did I mention it fits like a glove and retails for only $189.99? All sizes in stock

Sneak Peak of the new Bailey from Valo


I sat on this photo for a while and waited til someone else ran with it. I've been in trouble before and I didn't want to be that guy. No need to wait any longer. Coming this Holiday is the new EB boot. Sick colorway. Check out the plaid on the liner.
Here's what's said from the heads at Valo.

We want to inform you that Jon Julio and our great company in Italy (Roces S R L) have collaborated on yet another super looking EB. 1 boot.
Look for these to be at Alpine this Christmas.

Herndon Skate day





The town of herndon did a great thing this past Saturday, by hosting a skate event at the rec center parking lot. Greg from American Inline came out with some of his skateboard instructors and set up his ramps. All this was done to show skaters in Herndon that the town is working hard to get the skatepark built for them.


Thanks to Everyone who came out and had some fun on a hot summer day. All the organizing of these events is done by Cynthia, who deserves as lot of credit. Email her at cynthia.hoftiezer@herndon-va.gov. Tell her she's doing a good job, and volunteer yourself for any events the town puts on in the future. This skatepark is a great thing, and I can't wait for my kids to be rolling around the new skatepark for years to com.

New emerica Kicks for July


Can you feel the heat? 3 New Emerica models made their way into alpine today. Up top is the Emerica Francis in royal/black/white. This is my favorite of the 3. This colorway is simply amazing.
New Jerry Hsu high in Brown/blue. The Hsu model is one of Emericas top selling models. Comes with G2 gel in the sole and a superior footbed. Below is the sweet new Reynolds 3 in red/black grey. What sets this apart is that each shoe is different. They show opposite colorways for each foot. Very cool design in a solid skate shoe

Convoy Wood, originally uploaded by alpineskishop.

Eamonn dropped by the store today to deliver us some new Convoy wood. We have been sold out of these 3 graphics for some time now. Support local skate companies.

Razors Dre Powell Wheels

New wheel from Razors, the Dre Powell. It's a 57/89 and we have 4 sets of these in stock. This is the first Razors pro wheel that I can remember.

888 Re-up


A big old box showed up today from 888. Full of new pads and helmets. We are now fully restocked on wrist savers,undercover knees, Undercover elbows, and the Matte White helmet. If you are going to woodward, or just skating around, Alpine has the pads you need to help save some skin.

Ground Control Frames in stock

Ground Control Featherlite 2's arrived today in 2 new colors. The Aragon white in sizes 2 and 3, and the red Horn in a size 2. These ground controls are the lightest around, and they are super strong. @ great colors to pimp out the boots.

Dompierre Pro trucks from Thunder


Nick Dompierre has it figured out. He's sponsored by his local burrito shop, No Problemo, and has his very own signature hot sauce. I back that. And he's one of the gnarliest skaters ever (Transworld cover????).

Rumor has it that when Nick heard what the 'highest ollie' was at whatever competition a couple months ago, he set up that same height in his driveway and did it no problemo...bad joke? Just watch this.

After seeing this (DC welcome video) and this (Skateboard Mag Minute), I can't wait to see his part in the REAL video. I mean, if this was his throwaway footage??

Anyway, Nick's signature Thunder truck The Speedway is in stock and ready to ship! A lot of trucks came in earlier this week (purple hollow light, MJ Darkside, Cole White Tiger) and the attached availability is looking good!
One last video clip then I'm going to wrap this up. One of my favorite clips of the Gonz is the Coconut Records video for West Coast. He took some of the clips from Cheryl Duns video, Back World for Words, and made the video. Pretty awesome!

Rossignol 2010 Jr snowboards



New Junior snowboards have arrived from Rossignol today. 2 great graphics. Above is the Scan which comes in smaller sizes-110-120-and 130. See the wood grain through the topsheet. This is a clean looking deck with a nice soft flex for the groms.
Below is the Alias, which comes in the larger sizes. It is also wider for the kids with those monster size feet. Medium flexing with strong graphics make this a great choice for "tweener" out there.
