If you were ever a fan of Powell Peralta in the 80’s and 90’s then you know that Rodney Mullen was the king of freestyle skating. Hands down he was one of the most skilled skaters inventing tricks that left viewers scratching there heads in disbelief. Freestyle skating doesn’t get much hype these days but Kilian Martin is taking the torch and bringing freestyle back with a vengence. I don’t even know if there are names for half the tricks in the above vid! Amazing.

As you may know Book 4 should have already come out by now. Unfortunately I received an email from our printers last week about an unforeseen delay with our cargo ship. At first I thought pirates had taken over the vessel to hog all the copies of B/D for themselves, but alas it was just some bad weather combined with faulty parts on the cargo ship. So what does this mean for you, our faithful subscribers? Well the good news is that our magazines have just arrived in good ol’ sunny los Angeles. It will take a few days to clear customs and to pack up each book to send your way but you will get book 4 within the next two weeks. I know that the wait is longer than anticipated but I promise that it will be more than worth the wait.
For those of you who haven’t subscribed yet here is your last chance to get on board and get B/D delivered right to your door. Book 4 comes with a signed, full color, editioned silk screen print that will only go to subscribers so make sure you get in on it. Once we close subscriptions in the next couple of days you will miss out on Book 4 and will have to buy it separately at the regular,non-discounted price. Subscriptions are just a click away here.
Since we feel so bad about the delay we have decided to extend our 50% sale until every single subscription has been sent out. This way you can keep getting great deals while you patiently wait for the highly coveted book 4!
