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

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.

I know, I know, it's summer---do you really care that stomp pads are here? Probably not, but you might remember come winter. 2 new flavors from Burton. And I guarantee that we will run out, just like we do every year.

Matt just got back from the beach, and what do I have him doing? Checking in 2010 Burton Gear. 10 boxes of new decks arrived today. Look for posts of the new stuff soon.
Is in stock in the 177 size. The graphics from Jimbo are sick! Made just like a skateboard, this wood laminated ski is great for killing it in the park. Stop in to check out how sweet these look and feel.
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

Doug cupo stopped by Saturday for a quick session on the box. I was busy building The New Boot wall, but took time out to take a few shots. The box is always availble, and who knows... You might get your poic up on the blog. The rest of the shots are on flickr here.

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.
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!

Big Boxes came today from Alpine's newest distributor, Deluxe distribution. Deluxe handles Thunder trucks,Real-Krooked-and Anti Hero Skateboards-Venture, and Spitfire products. All of these are great, and we look forward to showcasing these in our skate section.
New Spitfire wheels, All sizes and flavors.
Venture trucks are back at Alpine. After not having a way to get them, we haven't had them in the case for over a year. But they are back and look as great as they always have.
New to the case is Thunder trucks. sick team and sick graphics all made in the USA!

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.
