Newport Beach’s Almond Surfboards & Designs has partnered with Shakastics Custom Planks to craft a co-branded, SoCal skateboard. Made by hand and screen-printed in Costa Mesa and measuring 24″ in length, the vintage-inspired hardwood board is smaller than Almond’s previous “Coffee-Break Commuter” and sees a kick in the tail while narrow trucks allow for increased maneuverability. The collaborative cruiser is now available online for $170 USD as a complete or $100 USD for the deck alone.

In an effort to create a skateboard capable of handling more than the typical city streets, sidewalks and rails, Royal College of Art graduate Po-Chih Lai has crafted the Stair Rover. Sporting modified trucks that house four wheels each as opposed to the usual two, the eight-wheeled Stair Rover is able to traverse flights of stairs with ease due to the pivoting action of the unique design. Captured on film by Juriaan Booij, the Stair Rover is on display now as a part of Show RCA 2012 in London. Enjoy.

What would you do if a carmaker loaned you a limited production supercar like the Lexus LFA for a few days? We are willing to bet that you can think of a lot of things to do but jumping over a $375,000 sports car with a skateboard would most likely be out of the question. But that's only because you are not named Tony Hawk. Here's Lexus' reaction: "Thanks Tony Hawk for taking the LFA to new heights. We'll pretend we didn't see this video skate across our desk. It's the least we could do to celebrate your birthday. We hope it was as great as you are!" Enjoy.

DeSean Jackson finally took some time off from the club recently (just kidding, D-Jack!) to act a fool at Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory. He rode a bike, drove a go-kart, and even jumped on a skateboard during his trip. So, if you're an Eagles fan, how many times do you hold your breath during this four-minute clip? Eaaaaaaaaasy, son!
