Grey Magazine Asks Kevin & Paul About Their Blueprint Banes

December 28, 2010

Grey Skateboard Magazine quizzes Paul Shier and Kevin Coakley about their most memorable tricks in Make Friends With the Color Blue. Kevin asserts that “the wallie fifty fifty on the rainbow bar was pretty memorable… The biggest problem was the landing because the brick surface was so bad. It was pretty much impossible to roll away from… This was the first day, first spot of the trip and [after ten tries] I absolutely killed myself. I ended up rolling my ankle really badly… Then we ended up finding a piece of wood [for a landing] and sure enough next go was a make. I probably could have saved myself from so much pain if we had that wood in the first place. Oh well, I guess that’s how it is sometimes. You’ve got to put in the work but in the end it’s always worth it. In the video the trick itself didn’t look like it was too hard but at least it made for a good slam. It was easily one of the hardest tricks for me in my whole part.” (Source: Grey Skateboard Mag)


The Transformation of Orchard

October 27, 2010

Orchard originally opened in Boston (Kevin Coakley turf) during the summer of 2006. They quickly outgrew their Mission Hill location and after nearly a year of renovating, they moved into their new 5,000 sq foot location in the Allston area. If you’re not in Boston, at least take some time to visit their website. If it’s from Orchard it’s always fresh. Below are some of the images from the restoration. Click here for more.
