Out of Brooklyn, NY Pysko Clothing releases their new line earlier in the month and today will be showing off their goods at the trade show at the Bitter Cold Show Down in Detroit today. Myself along with the guys over at Evotek Media met up with Josh Diaz, owner of Psyko, yesterday and got our hands on some free shirts and snapped a couple of pictures of Josh’s new line. Pictures will be up later in the week. In the meantime check out Psyko’s new line at the Psyko Clothing shop and Psyko blog.

One of New York’s biggest names in clothing, Casualty, is in Detroit today showing off their goods at the Bitter Cold Show Down trade show. We’ll have pictures from the trade show later in the week. In the mean time check out Casualty’s new Winter 2009 line.
Evotek’s own, Chris “Kixx” Cofer, sends us some pictures he snapped while filming a session with some NYC legends featuring, John Stephens, Rafael Herrera and Ramelle Knight. “…So I got a call from John Stephens at about 11:30am asking if I wanted to film at the pit. I had just finished drinking my breakfast vodka so I was up for anything. I took what ended up being a 10 minute train ride to the pit and met up with John. Shortly after Ramelle showed up with Ralphy and their friend Dave.” – Chris. Check out the rest of the pictures below.
For those who missed out on the Boogie Down Show Down and for those who will not be leaving to attend the Bitter Cold Show Down this weekend, B.Unique and the Haven Arts Gallery are throwing one last final jam session with a $100 prize for best trick. This will not be setup like your average competition. It’s in a jam session format which means all the competitors will session the box through the night and the winner will be announced later in the evening. Besides the jam session, B.Unique will be showing off their new never before seen products for 2009 and may also be giving a few samples out.

The Create Originals Graphic Display frame also allows for all setups, flat-rocker, anti-rocker. freestyle, and tri-rocker, to be ridden right out of the box. Every pair includes four low profile Freestyle Grind Blocks, which extend the grinding surfaces seamlessly and create a freestyle setup that not only allows for more grinding freedom, but also keeps you locked into your groove tricks and eliminates the “slip off” factor commonly found in other freestyle setups. Since each set of frames possess four graphic display options, that can be interchanged and individually replaced, you have the ability to limitlessly and constantly express your individual style. Most importantly, you have the ability to create and insert your own designs! The Create Originals Graphic Display Frame marks the beginning of a renaissance in frame customization and performance. The possibilities are literally endless! More information on the Create Originals website. Sample pictures below.

I’ve been sleeping on this edit for a while now and I’m glad I waited till after the BDSD because everyone got a preview of Sean Agoliati’s skating that night. Sean originates from Poughkeepsie, NY but is now living in Manhattan, NY. This is a small edit featuring some Poughkeepsie spots and NYC spots. Filmed and edited by Andrew Chiu. Song is The Ting Tings – Shut up and let me go.
When I (Craig) met up with Angelo Ferrer the night of the Boogie Down Show Down we gave each other a look that said, “Wow, there’s way too many crazy stunts to capture with just one photograph.” Luckily enough, Angelo came prepared with flashes surrounding the skate box, and captured a lot of great photos that froze some of the sickest tricks in time. You can see the rest of Angelo’s photos from the BDSD (Boogie Down Show Down) below and on his flickr page.
