Dose: Theotis Beasley on "Skate Dreams" and finding the next Mountain Dew rider
Presented by Mountain Dew
Pro skater Theotis Beasley is widely recognized as one of nicest dudes in the skate industry, and thus it was no surprise when he sat down to talk to Dose about his new Mountain Dew series Skate Dreams, set to launch on Network A Wednesday, January 21st. Theotis talks about the approach he and his Mountain Dew teammates Boo Johnson, Nick Tucker, and Keelan Dadd took to find the next skater to join the all-star team, proving that it's all about hard work, a good attitude, and, obviously, sick tricks.

There's nothing more fun then a sunny day session at the local park, and this week's episode of NKA Project puts that fact on full, slo-mo display. Featuring sick skating from Tommy Fynn, Richie Amador, Oscar Meza, Carlos Vega, Kevin Hoefler, and more, this one is heavy on both hammers and style so make sure to check it out.
What do you think of these slow-motion tricks? Sound off in the comments.
Last time out we watched as Keelan Dadd's am, Aramis Hudson, meet up with Atiba Jefferson and Theotis for a sick session at NoHo park, but in episode 2 it's Nick Tucker's turn to roll out with his homey, Paul Hart. With photographer Herman Jimenez in tow, Paul hits some classic LA spots, impressing Theotis with his effortless style and gnarly tricks. At the end of the day, he has some potential enders in the bag, but are they enough to make the team?
Watch episode 3 next Wednesday on Network A to see who’s up next to roll out with the crew. What would you give for an opportunity to join the DEW squad? Hit us up with comments below or at #DewSkateDreams
Forget granola bars and leave the continental breakfast in its tinfoil tray, because in the latest episode of Every Third Thursday Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew find a whole new way to grab a hot breakfast before hitting the hill.
The solution? Combine a snowboard and griddle into one powder-pounding, pancake-producing machine. Sure, it sounds simple enough, but creating a portable surface hot enough to fry an egg took the Signal braintrust a few tries before they were finally able to whip up both an ingenious solution and slopeside breakfast sandwiches for the whole crew. So grab the maple syrup, pour a hot cup of coffee, and kick back as Signal rider Brandon Schroeder gets this crazy hybrid snowboard cookin’ on the slopes of Mountain High.
How many different uses can you think of for this awesome griddle board? Let us know in the comments below!

After smashing UTEs Down Under in Australia, Ryan Tuerck hops over to New Zealand for a one-of-a-kind drift event: Red Bull Drift Shifters. This event showcases the precision and skill of these drivers as they drift through the pinball-like course in an effort to activate proximity sensors and get the highest score. Tuerck is among the 16 drivers competing alongside the best drivers from across the US, Japan, and New Zealand on this episode of Tuerck'd.
Before the event kicks off, Tuerck meets up with New Zealand drift driver and event organizer "Mad" Mike Whiddett to check out his epic shop packed with enviable cars including his FC RX7 “flash missile,” his RXA, and his super modified four rotor RX7. The Tuerck’d crew heads out to get a taste of New Zealand’s adrenaline opportunities including bungee jumping, downhill mountain biking, speedboating up rivers and around lakes, heli tours, shooting guns, throwing knives… basically anything that gets the blood pumping.
Adequately amped up, it’s time to stick it to the wall at the Red Bull Drift Shifters! Tuerck advances all the way into the semi-finals and then… watch the video to see how it turns out.
