8 YEAR OLD EVAN DOHERTY DOES A 720 – INTERVIEW BY CURTIS HENDRIX FROM DAIRDEVIL BOARDS – After discovering a clip of 8-year-old Evan Doherty spinning his first 720, we decided to contact him for a quick video interview. What stands out the most about him is his love for skateboarding at such a young age. Evan has some of the coolest parents ever as they built him the vert ramp that he landed his 720 on. Curtis Hendrix of Dairdevil Boards, a skate shop in Mission, Kansas, was our Juice reporter on the scene and the video above is just a glimpse into the future and the now of Evan Doherty. Special Thanks to Curtis Hendrix from Dairdevil Boards for doing the ground work on this one.
HOFFART PEGASUS GRAPHIC FROM VCJ IS HERE. From the time he was 10, Jordan Hoffart knew skateboarding was his life. For years, he lived his life in Vancouver working construction and skating every spare moment he had. In 2009, Jordan moved to San Diego from his Canadian homeland to live the skateboarder’s dream. Working his way up the ranks from shop sponsored skate rat to professional skateboarder, Jordan has paid his way with blood, sweat and sacrifice; the only true way to make it. Today, Powell-Peralta is excited to announce Jordan Hoffart’s much-deserved pro model, The Hoffart Pegasus, featuring one-of-a-kind graphics by the mystic, Vernon Courtlandt Johnson. This is VCJ’s first commercial offering since his highly anticipated return to Powell-Peralta. VCJ, known for some of the most iconic graphics in skateboarding history, has returned to Powell-Peralta with a vengeance. “I had been away from skate art for a long time in order to find some answers to personal questions. I am satisfied with what I have found. I am back in the game of skate art,” said VCJ reflecting on his return to skateboarding. In his early career, VCJ was the man behind the Ripper, Caballero Dragon, the Tony Hawk Hawk Skull, the Ray “Bones” Rodriguez Skull & Sword and the Mike McGill Skull & Snake graphics. After some tinkering to the initial design, VCJ has produced Jordan’s pro model graphic with a Pegasus theme of a winged horse. VCJ shared his insight on the image, “I see the symbol as a representation of the eternal soul and physical body. I am the soul and my body is the the horse that carries me through life. The logo behind the image represents those who love and support Jordan in respects to his giftedness, devotion and time in this form as Jordan Hoffart.”
“I’m stoked the way it panned out,” said Jordan reflecting on the experience, “It’s amazing. The whole process of sitting down and really getting to know VCJ was a blessing. The amount of energy, time and effort he put into making this graphic is unbelievable. I literally got a stack of 100+ sketches he did leading up to the finished drawing. I’m beyond stoked to have this opportunity given to me.” The levity of the first VCJ graphic since his return to skateboarding is heavy to Hoffart. “I just got it tattooed on my arm, so I get the significance of it. It’s a huge honor.” Powell-Peralta’s commander in chief, George Powell, talked about the time and effort that went into the project. “Jordan’s new graphic is a gift of love from Court. We spent the kind of time on it we used to in the early 80s, months, until it was as good as we could make it, so it will last forever.” Powell hinted at the velocity of the creative hurricane stirred up at Powell-Peralta since VCJ’s return. “Working with Court is very different than it was 30 years ago, what used to be difficult is now easy, and Court’s depth of understanding of both the skater he is creating a graphic for, and the deep meaning of the graphic keep bubbling to the surface as the design evolves. We are having too much fun.” The Hoffart Pegasus comes in two dimensions and is available in royal purple and blood red. The Hoffart Pegasus 1 is 8″ X 32.125″ with LIGAMENT™ technology, and the Hoffart Pegasus 2 is 8.5″ X 33.5″ both featuring a VCJ masterpiece of ride-able art on the highest quality skateboard decks available. The first five decks offered will be signed by VCJ and Jordan and available on the Skate One site Saturday. The net proceeds of the sales will be donated to the Grind For Life Organization. http://powell-peralta.com/

WOUNDED KNEE NEWS – Jim Murphy and Woundedknee Skateboards descended upon Pine Ridge, South Dakota in Lakota Country to spread the freedom of skateboarding to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Smithsonian TV was along to cover the Lakota Skate Culture for a documentary called “Native Skate Culture in America.” Wounded Knee is also teaming up with Jeff Ament from Pearl Jam to work on a signature deck with proceeds going towards another reservation skatepark in the works in Montana. The Stronghold Society would like to give a major shout out to Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam for his awesome support to build this first PHASE ONE plan of the WK4-Directions Skateparks. Jeff’s heart and continued support of the Stronghold Society’s Live Life Call To Action Campaigns is a huge asset to making this all possible. The Tony Hawk Foundation Board of Directors chose the Pine Ridge Skatepark as one of its top recipients with a 10,000-dollar grant. Board Members Chris Sacca and Ben Harper then each personally pledged an additional 5,000 dollars to ensure the Lakota-youth skatepark achieved its funding goal, and to add more support for this critical project. strongholdsociety.org and woundedkneeskateboards.net

ANDY ROY SPITFIRE LIFER WHEELS – Andy Roy is the sheriff of skateboarding. Get ready to get your socks pulled down if you’re faking cuz Andy Roy sees right through that. We did a mini interview with him about his Spitfire Lifer Wheels. Check it out.
What does it take to hang on tour with Andy Roy?
It would probably take a lot of patience. There’s a lot of heckling going on. You’ve got to rip right. We heckle. We skate. You’ve got to sleep in the dirt. You’ve got to just get it. If you don’t skate, you’re just sitting around on the sideline and you’re getting heckled. If you’re gonna go skateboard, go get some. You’ve got to spill blood.
Where is your favorite place to skate?
I just got back with the AntiHero team and we went all over Oregon and our last stop was Burnside. I haven’t been there in over 10 years and, when I used to go with Joey and John and all those guys, it raged and it hasn’t changed. They still lay down the law there. No bikers. No rollerbladers. You’re cut. If you’re weak, you’re lame. It’s always been like that. They’ve always kept it tough. 20 plus years and they’re still laying down the law. I like the whole environment of Burnside, and how sick the park is. I would have to say Burnside is my favorite place to skate. Right now that’s what’s on my mind. Burnside.
Who’s in your crew these days? Who’s in the van?
The whole Anti Hero Team. Robby Russo. Grosso. Double T. Tony Trujillo. The Silent Assassian. Julien. Cardiel is there. Frank Gerwer. Each one of them has something gnarly to give and I just don’t see any other team like that. They’re just raw power. A Team for life.
What’s the number one thing you teach your kids at skate school?
The number one thing I teach them is to skate fast. Fast, fast, fast. Grind as far as you can. Skate and use the whole skatepark. If you’re at a skatepark, you’re not just going to ollie the stairs and then walk back up. There’s a whole skatepark. Hit it all. Hit everything. I teach them that you only live once so skateboard like it’s the last time you’re ever going to skate. Spill blood. If you’re not slammin’, you’re not gettin’ none. I teach my kids to skate fast. Do what comes from the inside and just get busy. I just want to keep these kids tough. I do that by telling them to pick up a John Cardiel video. That will explain everything right there. Straight up. Skateboarding.
Cardiel rules. Why do you deserve a Lifer wheel?
I don’t know, but it’s an honor to be with Lance, Salba, Grosso, Jason Jessee, Dressen… I’m very thankful to Jim and everybody at Deluxe. I have them to thank because they hooked me up. For those guys to step up and give me a wheel, it means the world to me.
Say something inspirational.
Jay Adams. John Cardiel.

SEA OF DARKNESS shares the story of Mike Boyum originally from Maui, Hawaii and his cohorts as they seek the best waves in the Indian Ocean while taking risk in the high stakes of smuggling. The enigmatic Boyum was instrumental in establishing the world known surf spot Gland. His devil may care attitude and his quest of surfing the best waves, made a life of uncertainty and danger. During that time some of the most talented surfers were drawn to Boyum’s surf camp and took on his life style of living on brown rice and psychedelics. The dark side of the history of surfing had been talked about in the past, but this film brings to light the mystical and the mystery of some of the highlighted wave riders of the 1970’s. Rory Russell, Bob McKnight, Greg Noll and many others are featured in the film that had been a part of surfing the early waves of Indo. Director, Michael Oblowitz is a lifelong surfer, originally from South Africa who in most cases is a feature action filmmaker is ecstatic on the film’s success.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ocfMdhIuB4
