  • The rise and fall of Lennie Kirk has become the stuff of legend in the skate community. For the first time ever his story is being revealed through the lens of photographer Dennis McGrath in a limited collaboration with DC. 

  • So much good skating gets posted everyday on Insta. Some clips are so insanely good that a few years ago, they could've been legitimate video part enders. But the nature of Instagram is to be of the moment—to be instant. As a result, these clips get forever lost in the black hole of Insta's infinite scroll. "Liked" once and forgotten. Double Tapped is our way of slowing down the ever-growing feed to reflect. These are the clips that stood the test of time over the past 7 days and deserve a rewatch. Tag @berrics and hashtag #BerricsDoubleTapped on your Instavids for a chance to get in next week's Double Tapped.

  • The Zumiez Best Foot Forward Am contest series is back. With 34 stops this summer — and hosted by a huge mix of rad skate brands — you can be sure it'll be coming to a town near you. Click on over to zumiezbestfootforward.com for full details and tour schedule.

  • Our fun art form has come a long way in terms of progression, to put it mildly. Never content to just move forward, we often strive to perfect the art of moving backwards. Though it will feel awkward at first, the benefits of switching your stance can be very rewarding; no longer are there spots that can only be approached frontside and your poor, overused pushing leg gets a much-needed rest. If you make the effort to practice ambidextrous skating the way Cody McEntire has, soon enough no one will be able to tell what your true stance is. When they ask, "Was that switch?", you can just reply, "It's whatever you want it to be."

  • Bet you didn't see this one coming! Brandon Westgate is officially Element's newest pro. Take a moment to watch this and appreciate one of the greatest to ever ride a skateboard. This edit is no joke. And while you're at it, go buy one of his debut Element pro boards, hand-signed by the man himself, now in the Canteen. Every purchase comes with a free photo print.

  • Ever seen a fakie bigger triple flip? How about a half cab late double flip? Switch frontside double heelflip? That’s just the tip of the iceberg for Jonny Giger. You remember him from BATB7 and Battle For Aberrica. Now reacquaint yourself with the Swiss flatground assassin who’s got every trick in the book… and then some. First person to screenshot this post, upload it to Instagram, tag @berrics and @jonny_chinaski_giger, and hashtag #JonnyGigerChallenge correctly naming the first 25 flatground tricks in this video will get a box of Berrics gear. Don’t think it’s gonna be easy. Naming these tricks might be just as hard as doing 'em. Good luck.

  • Everyone has a story. Everyone comes from somewhere. The son of a pastor — and one of 10 children — Josh Matthews grew up with humble roots in a small town in Oregon. He didn’t start skating to go pro or travel the world to film video parts. He didn’t even know what pros were or why people filmed tricks back when he got his first board. This is the story of a kid who knew what he loved, and chased after it despite any obstacles in his path.
