 After a long wait, the skatepark at Lake Fairfax park is now open. It is absolutley amazing. 15,000 square feet of concrete. An amazing street dplaza anchors the triple pool area. It has banks,hips,rails,boxes, and gaps galore. It is truly a sight to see. It seems that each new skatepark being opened is better than the next. We are looking forward to holding a couple of fun demos and contests there next year. So get out to this amazing new park and enjoy. Also--Keep it CLEAN. The county spent a ton of money on this, keep it looking and skating good. Rumor is..more skateparks are on the agenda.

Santa Cruz Re Issue Wood up on the wall

 At Alpine we are devoted to carrying all the super cool re issue wood. Since I grew up skating in the 80's I love seeing each and every one of these great pieces of art. It brings me back to a time when the graphic actually meant something. It was a graphic that stuck with a skater for quite a while, and you would search for different colors. So this weeks treasure find brings us a SIGNED Claus Grabke melting clocks deck in natural. The red Jeff Kendall, and a camo Roskopp face. Below is a Black Roskopp 1, a great Keith Meek Slasher in green and one of the Simpson's Roskopp 1 knock off boards. Not shown is a Blue Roskopp 1 deck.
Think Alpine for all of your re issue wood. Skate em, Hang em in your office, or set em up as a cruzer. We can fill all of these needs.
