Some Poptart extras via Gullwing Truck Co.
Poptart absolutely kills it in Midtown Skatepark’s latest Clip of the Week.
Nick Murphy was one of the first people that I met when I started doing No Comply Skateboard Mag 2 1/2 years ago. Nick is a really rad dude…he is motivated, he has a great attitude, and he shreds. He has talked about wanting to make the move to California for quite a while now, and he is finally doing it. All of your Florida Friends and Family are super stoked for you man. We will miss you, but we support you 100%. Don’t even think about looking back. Cheers! – Nicks.
Gullwing Truck Co. found some lost tapes of their trip to the 2012 Florida Bowlriders Cup. As they say…”Better late than never”. Check i t out, there is some ripping footage from Jake “Poptart” Welch, Keith Baldassare, Connor Getzlaff, Shaun Ross, and many more…
About this time last year, Keith Baldassare and Jake “Poptart” Welch set out on a cross-country road trip from Florida to California. Appropriately named the “Dumpster Dive Tour”…check out some of what they got themselves into.
Gullwing Truck Co. has a rad Behind the Ad with Keith Baladassare.
Got a few shots here from Team Pain Skateparks newest concrete wonderland in Lakeland, FL. The Grand Opening Celebration was this past Saturday…and it was epic. Keep your eyes peeled for the rest of the photos from Lakeland later this week on http://www.teampain.com.

Demon Seed Skateboards rider Keith Baldassare made the trek to California almost a year ago…looks like things are going pretty well. Check out Keith and some of the other Gullwing Truck Co. crew shredding in this Typical Culture x Gullwing Truck Co. edit.
The Gullwing Army hopped into the infamous white van and rolled up the California coast towards San Francisco recently. They were en route to the Chili Bowl Contest and did some shredding along the way. Featuring: Shaun Ross, Poptart, Keith Baldassare, Connor Getzlaff, Andrew Mercado, and more…
I was holding on to these two photos for the purpose of using them in the first print issue of No Comply Skateboard Mag. In January of 2013, the mag will be 2 years old. I really wanted to release the first print issue of the mag in January in conjunction with the 2 Year Anniversary. But, over the last few weeks I have been doing a lot of thinking. I have unfortunately, come to the conclusion at this point, that I am not going to be doing a print issue of the mag. At least, not for now. This doesn’t mean that it is totally out of the equation. It just means that, based on where I have placed my priorities in life at the present moment, it just doesn’t make the list. I have decided to focus my efforts (After Family, Friends, and Work) on continuing to evolve the website, shooting more photos, learning how to shoot video, and on growing my new apparel and accessories brand No Comply.
That being said, I am stoked more and more every day on how the mag has grown and on all of the rad people that I have met (and reconnected with) over the past two years as a result. It’s also really cool to hear all of the positive feedback from people that I meet. That means a lot! Thank you. Anyway, I hope everyone continues to enjoy the mag. Cheers! -Nicks

Maybe I’m just getting old, but all of the bands at the 2012 Vans Warped Tour in St. Pete yesterday sounded the same. Someone at one point told me that it was the same band that had played a four hour set, and I believed him. Anyway, at least the skating was ripping. Here is a little sample of the shredding that went down on this hot, July afternoon in St. Pete, Florida. – Nicks
1. Jereme Knibbs – $250

Looks like Shaun Ross and Andrew Mercado stayed for a few days and shredded with a bunch of the Demon Seed crew and other local rippers. Video includes footage of: Rich Payne, Adam “Scissors” Effertz, Poptart, Nick Murphy, Benji Galloway, Isaac Crawford, Aaron Astorga, Todd Johnson, and Shaun “Tha Boss” Ross.
