R.I.P. EARTHQUAKE POOL

THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS SPOT WAS WHEN YOU WOULD STAND AT THE TOP OF THE POOL THEN LOOK DOWN YOU COULDN’T SEE THE WALL. JUST CAUSE THERE WAS SO MUCH OVERVERT FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE POOL SLIPPING AWAY OVER TIME. LAST I HEARD THE NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR CEMENTED NAILS FACE UP ALL OVER THE POOL, SHE JUST COULDN’T HANDLE THE NOISE I GUESS. R.I.P. EARTHQUAKE POOL MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL PHOTOS: DETHKILLS


FINALLY SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS ME FOR ME.

TO THE EXTREME I ROCK A MIC LIKE A VANDAL. LIGHT UP A STAGE AND WAX A CHUMP LIKE A CANDLE. DANCE!

ROLLERBLADING COPS IS LIKE THE DORK IN SCHOOL WHOSE MOM MADE HIM WEAR THAT GAY SWEATER ON FRIDAYS.


7 QUESTIONS

RICKY WEBB 1)Why should we pay attention to Ricky Webb? I RIDE A SKATEBOARD, LOVE IT TO DEATH, AND DREAM OF MAKING A CAREER OUT OF IT SOMEDAY.

2) On a normal day where can we find you? IN THE MORNING YOU CAN FIND ME AT MY HOUSE IN THE LBC. IN THE AFTERNOON IM SKATING AROUND LA OR THE OC. 3) Is skateboarding for the kids? IT’S FOR THE KIDS 100%. THEY ARE THE DREAMERS AND THE FUTURE. I WAS JUST A KID WHEN I PICKED UP A SKATEBOARD. I STILL HAVE THE SAME LOVE FOR SKATING NOW THAN I DID WHEN I WAS LITTLE KID. IT’S AMAZING! 4) When is the best time to chill? WHEN MY SKATEBOARD GOES TO SLEEP. LOL

RICKY, I SAID 7 NOT 10

5)Why can’t you ever land that trick? IM EITHER FRUSTRATED WITH IT OR HAVE NO PATIENCE FOR IT AT THE TIME. IM GONNA GET IT SOMEDAY! 6)Uppers or Downers? WHO LIKES DOWNERS? LOL 7)Roll Call? RASHAD TURNER! AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK GABE CLEMENT @ DVS SHOES, PAUL SHARPE AND DAVE ASHLEY FOR SENDING ME THOSE CRISP ALMOST BOARDS, EARS @ FORCE TRUCKS, EVERYONE AT FURNACE SKATESHOP, EVERYONE @ THE HUNDREDS, JAMES @ DIGITAL X CAMERAS, AKI TURNER, AJ NELSON, AND MOM AND POP FOR LETTING ME LIVE RENT FREE! (FOR NOW) HAHA

CONSERVE YOUR DANK! I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS GROWING UP MY BEST FRIEND, THE KID WHO TAUGHT ME HOW TO BLAZE, HAD A COUSIN WHO WAS WELL VERSED IN THE MARY JANE GAME. THIS FOOL, I FORGOT HIS NAME, WAS ONE OF THE MOST, O.G. GANSTER FOOLS I HAVE EVER KNOWN PERSONALLY. THE FIRST TIME I MET HIM HE STILL HAD THE SECURITY BEEPER ATTACHED TO THE FRESHLY STOLEN SWEATSHIRT HE WAS WEARING. ANYWAYS, THIS FOOL WOULD ALWAYS HAVE THIS METHODICAL WAY OF SMOKING. HERE AS SOME OF O.G. COUSINS WAYS TO CONSERVE YOUR DANK, YOUR HIGH, ETC. 1. PUT VISINE IN BEFORE YOU SMOKE, IT WONT BRING DOWN YOUR HIGH. 2. EAT BEFORE YOU SMOKE, IT WONT BRING DOWN YOUR HIGH. 3. WITH A DIME BAG YOU CAN ROLL ONE BLUNT, SMOKE HALF NOW, HALF LATER. 4. IF YOU SMOKE A CIGARETTE AFTER YOU BLAZE, YOU INCREASE YOUR HIGH BY 25% 5. KOOL AID IS A CHEAP WAY TO STAY HYDRATED. 6.BROTHA LYNCH IS A GOOD WAY TO STAY ELEVATED. 7. ONLY EAT WATERMELON IF THERE IS FRIED CHICKEN CLOSELY AVAILABLE. 8. A BUNCH OF ROACHES EQUALS ONE REJUVINATOR BLUNT. 9. SMOKE RESIN IF NECESSARY, JUST NOT WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND. DISCLAIMER: BUS MAGAZINE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DANK THAT YOU WASTE BECAUSE OF THIS ARTICLE.

PRODUCT REVIEWSKI I WENT TO SPORTS CHALET TO GET GLOVES AND SAW A CHRIS DOBSTAFF DECK ON THE WALL, I LOOKED IT UP ONLINE AND I GUESS HE RIDES FOR SOME TOY R US BRAND. ANYWAYS SUPPORT PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDING AND QUALITY PRODUCTS, DON’T BUY THAT STANDARD SHIT, LIKE BLANK BOARDS, SHOP HARDWARE, SHOP GRIP, BLANK WHEELS, ETC. KEEP IT INDUSTRY, SO MAYBE OUR HEROS CAN KEEP PAYING THEIR BILLS WITHOUT RIDING FOR TOYS R US AND IT’S PARENT COMPANIES. REMEMBER THAT EXTRA MONEY YOU PAY FOR YOUR SHIT, IS ACTUALLY GOING TO THE SKATERS THEMSELVES. AND THEIR ILLBEGOTTEN CHILDREN. THAT BEING SAID, IT LOOKS GAY WHEN YOU WALK OUT OF THE MALL WITH A BRAND NEW SETUP. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SKATESHOP BEEYOTCH!

UPFUL HARDWARE: THOSE STONERS AT UPFUL MAKE SOME NICE STUFF. I WOULD SAY IT IS COMPARABLE TO SHORTY’S BUT MORE COLORFUL. QUALITY SHIT THOUGH. THEY ALSO MAKE AXLE NUTS WHICH I FIND TO COME IN HANDY BECAUSE I AM THE PRIMOSLIDE MASTER SO I SCRAPE UP MY AXLE ENDS ALOT. DID I MENTION THEY HAVE FOOLS LIKE TOSH TOWNEND AND JAMES CRAIG. BUT IT’S NOT LIKE THAT MATTERS TO YOU ANYWAYS. SUPPORT UPFUL HARDWARE, IT’S TIGHTER THAN YOUR LITTLE. WWW.UPFULSKATEBOARDING.COM

DIGITAL X CAMERA:

LONG STORY SHORT THIS IS SOME GEORGE JETSON TYPE SHIT IN YOUR HAND. HD VIDEOCAMERA, MP3 PLAYER, 11 MEGAPIXEL STILL CAM, DVR RECORDER, WEBCAM, VOICE RECORDER & SOME MODELS HAVE VIDEO GAME FEATURES ALSO. DAMN THATS A MOUTHFUL, AND THE KICKER IS THAT IT IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF AN I-PHONE ONLY A LITTLE THICKER. BASICALLY YOU WILL NEVER BE CAUGHT OFF GUARD WHEN SPLIT SECOND HIJINX HAPPENS. OR JUST USE IT INSTEAD OF THAT CLUNKY CAMERA YOU GOT. OH BTW IT’S 1080i HD FOR ALL YOU GEEKS THAT WERE

WWW.THEDIGITALXCAMERA.COM

WONDERING.

SOUNDCLASH SKATEBOARDS: OH AND SINCE IT SEEMS THAT A LOT OF CHUMPS AREN’T SUPPORTING PRO SKATEBOARDERS, YOU MIGHT AS WELL START SUPPORTING HIP HOP ARTISTS. SOUNDCLASH MAKES SKATEBOARDS THAT ACTUALLY HAVE MASS POP. SUPPORT UNDERGROUND HIPHOP ARTISTS SUCH AS DEFARI, NECRO, LIVING LEGENDS, AND 2 MEX. SOUNDCLASH ALSO MAKES EXCLUSIVE MUSIC FEATURING THESE ARTISTS. I SNAGGED A FEW AND CONTEMPLATED HANGING THEM ON MY WALL, BUT IN THE END, I AM A SKATEBOARDER AT HEART, I COULDN’T LET THAT SHIT JUST HANG OUT. AND SINCE THEY ARE SOLD AT SKATESHOPS, YOU DON’T HAVE TO SUPPORT THOSE CORPORATE ASSHOLES EITHER. ONE LOVE! FOR MORE INFO ON WHERE TO SEND YOUR PRODUCT FOR REVIEW: BUSSKATEBOARDING@GMAIL.COM
