Check out Seismic flow riders meltin’ pavement all over Madrid. AND TURN YOUR EARS to the sound of “In the Whale”. The band started underground in Greeley, Colorado then moved to Denver shortly after to be a part of the growing music scene.

A little bit about the band:

“…Our music tends to explore the sleazier side of life… the creepy guy in the bar eyeballing the pretty girl, the televangelist who tells you he can save you from the lake of fire, that one uncle you have with the gun collection. We hope to convey a sort of mixture of passion, aggression, and fun with our live show, and we like to think we do a damn good job at it, thank you very much…” – In the Whale

The Landslide is a very similar sized wheel to the purple Durian, that I’ve always been a fan of  but these have just a little wider contact patch. Hands down the wheels did seem to drift a little too much but I’m sure its just my technique. After a solid session behind the Hopshop, I started hitting the toe sides hard, feeling free to get it sideways knowing that it was always going to come back with no trouble. The result was my first pendy style standup toeside! Stoked on a new slide in the bag,  I got Maga to start taking photos and the ripping continued.
