I have been filming with Cloud Ride Wheels team rider Devon Dotson quite a bit the last month and we finally got to release our first edit featuring the Cloud Ride Slusheez. Checkout the edit below and be on the lookout for the next edit. WATCH THE VIDEO: More information: Cloud Ride Wheels team rider Devon Dotson put the new Slusheez to work! The Slusheez are a skateboard wheel that every longboarder needs to try and own! These new 62mm / 78 skateboard wheels are a thaney and slidey freeride wheel perfect banging out those long stand-ups you’ve been longing for. We rounded the lips and stoneground these puppies to make the first few slides even sweeter. Using our magical “Slush” thane we melted the ice to give you a wheel that slides effortlessly but also knows when to dump some thane.

Another Duck Pucks NW Trail series is in the books. People traveled as far from Pennsylvania for this most excellent event (it’s true kinda).

Welp. I was not anticipating that at all. I did not plan on taking a photo of the Space Needle yesterday and I did not plan on a photo going even more viral than my foggy Space Needle photo before the Super Bowl last year. I was driving home from the the DB Longboards / DB Skimboards shop Wednesday from Tacoma evening and I received a tweet from my friend Mary: .@equalmotion @mattsadventure have you taken a photo of #24 #GriffeyHOF Flag on the Spaceneedle yet? All the ones I've seen aren't so good 😊 — mary d (@marrdozilla) January 7, 2016 I drove a little bit faster in hopes of capturing the last light of the day. I made it home and was not very satisfied with the photo and only posted it to Twitter. And that is where it all started. The Space Needle retweeted me, then the Mariners, then Sportscenter, CBS Sports, Bleacher Report and other media news outlets. The Mariners and Macklemore posted it on Instagram and then CNN contacted me to ask if it were be possible to air my photo in their newscast and they did along with it showing up on other networks […]

I really enjoy West Seattle. It has a small beach-town vibe, but is part of the city. During the summer I venture to Alki Beack quite a lot to skimboard and longboard. I find myself still going out there in the winter for the views and it’s not nearly as crowded as it is during the summer. I recently went out to West Seattle to longboard, walk my dog Charlie, grab some dinner and capture some photos. As Charlie (the dog) ran around on the beach I noticed some clouds rolling in behind the Space Needle as the sun was going down and started shooting photos. As I zoomed out I noticed a red object appearing in the water. As it got closer I realized it was a man swimming, without a wetsuit, in November. As he ran out of the water I asked him what he was doing and if he wanted a copy of the photo and he said mid-sprint “Preparing for a Triathlon. Not Thanks!” and continued running towards his car. I would have done the same. From what I am told people swimming, paddle boarding and any other “summer” activity you can think of still takes […]
Over the past couple months I have been filming with DB Longboards team rider Devon Dotson skating on the Keystone 37″. We hit up a downhill spot near Mount Vernon, but besides that we filmed in the Seattle area. We hit up two skate parks and a couple freeride spots. It was somewhat difficult to film due to all of the rain, but we managed to put together this edit by our December 1st deadline. Hope you like the new video and you can view it below.
I have been editing so many longboarding and skimboarding videos I captured last summer it is seriously making me miss the summer weather, actives and vibes. I had to hold all of this media for winter product releases and I just released my first media package for the Atlas Trucks Touch Enabled Slide Gloves last Wednesday. You can find out more about those wonderful gloves by CLICKING HERE. I really enjoyed filming editing this video and we did the whole shoot in one day, which was great. Atlas Trucks team rider Jackson Wells and I ventured to Everett to find some new longboarding spots that have not been overshot and we did find a couple of great spots. Check the video and photos below.
