Dose: How to build a parking block for skating with Homage and Converse
Mixing that concrete
Converse's CONS Project is a series of workshops dedicated to teaching kids about skateboarding's crucial DIY ethic. In the first workshop, Homage's Jose Portes shows how to make a perfect concrete parking block and then takes it to the park for Eric Valederez, Richie Dahland, Drew McKenzie, and Dan Mandell to session. Dose was on-hand to get you the low-down.

Those things that surfers are riding in this video, they're not waves. They're sea monsters. BIG. F—KING. SEA MONSTERS. And that big wave spot Nazare in Portugal has spawned some of them again recently.
Nazare, as you'll recall is like Jaws on steroids, is home to the biggest waves on Earth. Last fall, Carlos Burle saved Maya Gabeira's life there, and it continues to be the focus of the largest wave riding in the world.
So that whole nor'easter that the Northeast U.S. had went through last week went across the Atlantic and did this. Again, sea monsters (as in big mountains of water), not waves.

Well, we guess you can just use any dirt track for this awesome dirt karting. But we imagine not every dirt track would allow this yet—though we have no idea why they wouldn't. Jason and his buddy Jim have a pretty epic dirt track kart battle, and it's definitely got us wanting to explore this form of racing more.

With the onslaught of smart phones, smart cars, smart home thermostats, and smart just about everything else, it's about time a smart snowboard was made. And the guys at Signal Snowboards were just the people to develop it.
In this new episode of Every Third Thursday, Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew team up with Matt Davis from Name The Machine, Samy Kamkar, and Alex Nano to build a snowboard that acts like a video game controller to control the playback of the music. The crew builds sensors into the snowboard and creates custom software to gather data and manipulate the soundtrack based on the boards motions. Signal rider Daniel Brown then gets to test out the smart board at Bear Mountain, creating his own custom park riding soundtrack.
