Gene Boles, another satisfied customer

Here, you have another satisfied Small Beating Skateboards customer, Gene Boles. Gene's riding his Josh Nelson deck over the steps at Fred's Pool. There's only about 6" of transition in the shallow so, yes, Gene is gnar! We're skating Fred's on Sunday, so if you want, meet us out there. If you don't know where it is, then you're not invited, don't ask... photo: Jamie Camp

That's a lotta herb

More coverage of the SF Underground contest here. Yeah, Brad!


An amateur skateboard contest, punk show and human gargoyle convention all rolled into one. Mattson was a one-man pro demo, literally. Hendo got beaten by a 10 year-old and our own Brad McClain walked away with 1st place plus $2,000 for his troubles. The check was 8 feet long so it had to be broken into a few pieces before Brad could fit it in his car. Pics and vids to follow. Maybe....

We got posters!

B(rad) McClain posters can be had when you order from the Small Beating shoppe. These can also be seen hanging in your local shop, if said local shop doesn't suck.
