Plus, handy tips for learning Cab flips.
Previously on The Amazing Richie Jackson Skateboard Show, Jackson asked viewers to rename skateboarding and send in their suggestions. The results are pretty epic ("Pusiwancing," anyone?). Jackson also digs deep to see what goes into making a skateboard. What he uncovers is shocking. And in Skateboard Education Lesson school, Jackson explains the Cab flip and why you should never, ever call it a fakie backside full Cab flip.
Now that's metal.
As part of Metallica's Orion festival in Detroit, Vans set up a vert ramp for its skate team. The festival featured performances by James, Lars and Kurt plus the Red Hot Chili Peppers and others. Christian Hosoi and Steve Caballero were on hand for the skate demo and aside from riding the vert ramp and checking out the music, the veteran skaters also had the opportunity to take some Segways for a spin. Hosoi also showed off his skills with a slingshot and got Cab to do some push-ups.

Steve Caballero has been a pro skateboarder for longer than most skaters have been alive. That includes his young son Caleb, who still gets to reap the rewards of having a legend for a dad. Caballero took his son on a road trip that featured a trip to the motocross track with Mike McGill, a shred session at the Vans skatepark with Duane Peters and a chance to make pizza with Salman Agah.
