At DC we’re proud to do our part to protect the environment, so we kitted out the Manual with S.Café? Coffee Yarn. This groundbreaking fabric is made of an eco-friendly 50/50 blend of cotton and recycled coffee grounds. The Everyday Grinds Collection is just the first step in DC’s journey to create smarter, cleaner, and more sustainable gear.

<![CDATA[Burger Lords - 100% Vegan]]> http://www.getecovers.com/blog/burgerlords http://www.getecovers.com/blog/burgerlords .blogqs { margin: 0 auto; width: 100%; font-family: sans-serif; color: #171717; text-align: center; } .blog-image { max-width: 1000px; margin: 0 auto; padding: 25px; width: 100%; } .page-title { margin: 0 auto!important; text-align: center!important; margin-top: 15px!important; } .blogqs p { max-width: 800px; margin: 0 auto; }

To celebrate the release of the all-new vegan-friendly Manual, we headed to Los Angeles to catch up with Burgerlords founder Frederick Guerrero. We chatted about what inspired them to create a 100% vegan menu that still has the looks, smells, and tastes of a classic burger joint.

What inspired you to switch to an all-vegan menu?
I’ve been vegetarian nearly my whole life, so having a vegan/vegetarian restaurant has always been something I’ve aspired to do. When the we shut down at the beginning of the pandemic, it me some time to reflect on the restaurant. I figured with so much uncertainty in the world, might as well give it a shot and transition the restaurant to what I had always envisioned.

Most vegan restaurants have a more granola vibe, but you have maintained more of a classic, greasy burger joint vibe. Tell us about that.
The aesthetic of the restaurant is just a reflection of what I’m personally interested in. Having been born and raised here in Los Angeles, I grew up eating at diners and classic fast food restaurants. I’m really inspired by nostalgia and how we can maintain that feeling but in a contemporary way.

Where do you get the inspiration for all those extra vegan-friendly ingredients you have to make?
I think the main draw of inspiration for the menu comes from classic, Southern California burger joints. We look at some of the places we grew up eating at and say “can we do a vegan version of that?” Sometimes it works, but sometimes is doesn’t. So the menu we’re presenting today is all the things that have worked!
Another thing is that we are focused on making food from real veggies. Just because something is labeled “plant based” doesn’t mean it is actually made of plants. It’s important that we source our food from like minded makers and producers that are aligned with our same values.

So, if somebody were to come into the restaurant for the first time, what would you suggest they order?
For first timers I would highly suggest our “Classic Vegan Burger.” We make it everyday from scratch using real veggies, nuts and grains. It is the foundation of our whole menu and my favorite thing to eat as well.

What’s next for Burgerlords or any other culinary pursuits?
Starting this month we will begin shipping burgers around the country on the Goldbelly platform. It is kind of like Postmates but for the entire country. So if you live on the East Coast, you can finally have our food shipped directly to you.

Our Spring collection is an ode to the past, with the future in sight and it’s literally yours for the taking. So go get at it. Keep it real and don't forget where you came from. We ain't.

Teaming up with James J. Robinson, we set out to challenge the status quo of the conventional skate brand and set this shoot on a new canvas. The heritage of bold blocks paired with rugby polos, satchels and slimmed down chunk kicks combines skate, lifestyle, and streetwear which creates an authentic modern mix of the brand.

As said on Acclaim.com:

“Australian-born, New York-based photographer James. J Robinson is the ideal director for this shoot. His grainy yet dense style encapsulated the vintage aesthetic of the apparel. The shoot takes place in an isolated pool room and explores an all-encompassing vibe of translucence and contentment. It’s a heavenly setting that sees the ripples of the water fade into a palette of green and the focus on DC’s evolutionary take on their usual vision.

This collection strengthens an already monstrous 2018 for DC, having already released the E.Tribeka – their new lifestyle sneaker. The silhouette takes some influence from the chunky bulk of the ‘dad-shoe’ trend but approaches it in a sleeker manner. The simple yet stylish quality of these sneakers boasts the ability to go with any outfit on the street-wear spectrum – culminating in the widest, most diverse reach the brand has ever had. With triumphs like this, it’s clear DC isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.”

Go explore the E.Tribeka collection here.

And keep an eye for upcoming drops from the shoot

During Paris Fashion Week S/S 2019, DC SHOES collaborated with US artist and streetwear vet Joshua Vides at The HUB, to present the latest installation of his exhibition series Reality to Idea. The exhibit saw Vides takeover the brand's underground creative studio in Paris, flipping his signature style on its head for a subterranean reimagining.


This was the first time that the artist had stepped away from his usual black outlines over crisp white backgrounds, instead deciding to use fluorescent paint on a black base and lit the space with UV, taking his art to a new dimension. This unique event saw Vides create an alternative reality in the space, outlining an idea of windows, doorways and further rooms that were not there in reality, but instead all depicted using his iconic graphic lines.


Reality to Idea opened on Friday 22nd of June 2018 with an exclusive launch evening, before being opened all weekend to the enthusiastic visitors. A limited run of tee-shirts was presented exclusively at Nous during the after party. Also, DC Shoes has partnered with Joshua Vides to handpaint a pair of E. Tribeka. Learn more about the all new E.Tribeka at dcshoes.com/triebka.

"It’s impossible to totally recreate the insanity of Dime's Glory Challenge, but this edit comes real damn close. Thank you Dime, DC, Joe Valdez, Sluggo, Scientology, and SPEED. Until next time..." - Thrasher Mag


Alex turned pro this year for Element Australia and here's the reason why. Video part with Alex Lawton from DC x Element.


"Wes and Alexis form a deadly duo of street assassins, snuffing out spots with masterful board control and endless lines." - Thrasher - SK8MAFIA is not a skateboard company, it’s a way of life. This year DC partnered with the crustiest crew in San Diego. Learn more at dcshoes.com/sk8mafia.

DC SpringBreak 2017

When you've got all ya boys down under, you gotta make the most of it… And that's just what we did. Spring had sprung, the sun and slush had arrived and it was now possible to have what in Australia we call, a Barbecue- or a barby, if you're Aussie.

The Gum trees, another Australian Icon were trying to bloom - but there was actually too much snow… Alas, the smell of cooked snags was in the air and the boys were shredding. Sebbe De Buck, Iikka Backstrom, Charles Beckinsale, Peppino Stewart and Troy Sturrock were there to ride into spring with all the crew who turned out for DC’s annual Spring Break.

Wanna get yourself a new DC HoodaClava? How about you air this hip and grab it. And they did it. There were some slams, some triumphs and definitely a lot of high fives and laughs. Check out the images below to catch your own mug, or get psyched on the video above to get you amped to make the trip next year! Aussies know how to have a good time- just ask Sebbe and Iikka...

During a recent DC filming trip to Barcelona, we grabbed a few minutes with Wes Kremer.
Find out what got him to start skating, and what it is that keeps him motivated each time he's on his board.

The future is always bright when you're talking about these two guys. Wes Kremer and Evan Smith: Photo: Blabac.

DC: Hey Wes, what got you started skating?

Wes: “I found out about skating through my neighbors. Some of the kids in my neighborhood were rollin1 around in the cul-de-sac I grew up in, and after seeing them roll around I wanted to get a skateboard of my own. So I got my own skateboard and just started skating. I pretty much fell in love with going fast, catching air, and just hanging out on my board. I had other friends progressing at the same time, learning tricks, and in a way my friends helped keep me skating.

DC: What is it that keeps you skating?

Wes: I have an addictive personality and I'm fully addicted to skating. I'm a lifer. Pretty much it's in my blood, and you can't stop once you've been doing something for way more than half your life.

This week, we got a chance to talk with Evan Smith about what influenced his entry into skateboarding and how it continues to be an important part of his life.

Wes Kremer and Evan Smith - Fresno, CA. Photo: Blabac.

Right off the bat, Evan laid it all out there stating, “Skateboarding is probably the most influential thing in my life.” As we dug a little deeper we got an inside look into how he got his start:

Evan: “When I was a kid I didn’t have much to do so I started skating, and I found my friends and family in a [skate] culture that already existed. The blessing of the entire thing was that I had a nearby skate park to go to - a common ground – there’s a lot of kids growing up right now that don’t have a skate park, and that was one of the biggest things that kept me skateboarding.”

DC: That’s a great point Evan, we agree skate parks play a huge role in keeping skaters of all levels motivated. But where did you even get your first board to get there?

Evan: “My uncle Mike was a huge influence for me, he got me my first board when I was 11. Actually, he got me and my cousin each a board at the same time. I remember we went out and skated in the driveway, and we each took a pretty good slam, my cousin went inside and read a book - he’s a lawyer now - but I stayed outside and skated, and I’m still skating.”

Evan Smith shows us the sights of his hometown. Tre Flip- Pittsburgh, PA. Photo: Blabac.

DC: That’s an awesome story - we speak for the entire skate community when we say that we’re glad you chose skateboarding. What is it like doing something you love so much as a career?

Evan: “It’s influential doing something you love, doing it every day, and having something to grow with. I’ve got so many things out of skating, and it’s probably the biggest creative influence on my entire life, if I didn’t have it I probably wouldn’t be complete. That’s how I feel about skateboarding.”

The inconsistent and troubling weather didn’t stop the field of over 50+ riders from ripping it up all day. Taking place at France’s legendary DC Area 43, the course challenged riders to ride as fast as they can through banked turns, and throw down their best tricks on the 3 judged sections (pipe, rails, and jump). At the end of the day it was Mons Roisland who took home the cash for Mens Pro and best trick with a switch back 1260, Sebbe De Buck coming in second, and Jordan Morse with 3rd. The mysterious “LeBlanc” lead the way in Men’s Open, and Nikelaeva Xenia won for the Women’s Open. Next stop Whistler!

Some heavy skateboarding went down at Pedlow Park in Van Nuys, CA last Saturday as we celebrated the upcoming launch of the DC x Baker Skateboards collaboration. Tristan Funkhouser and Cyril Jackson took some time off their boards to hang with everyone who came out, sign the custom DC x Baker Slurpee cups, and man the BBQ. Shop the DC x Baker capsule collection here.

In the late ‘90s and early aughts, Josh Kalis was the undisputed king of Love Park. He would hold court daily as evidenced in countless classic videos from that era. In honor of the DC x Slam City Skates Kalis Lite, Memory Screen produced this Josh Kalis Love Park retrospective. Love Park may be gone, but Kalis’ legacy there will never be forgotten.

Tommy Fynn's second PUSH episode is a swirl of all the responsibilities, perks, and inconveniences of being a Pro skater. You may be on the verge of getting kicked out while trying to shoot an ad one minute—with an audience that includes legends Mike Blabac and Josh Kalis—then rushing off to catch a cross-country flight the next minute. It's all part of the deal, and it can get a little… what's the word?

Head over to The Berrics to enjoy the clip.

<![CDATA["WES KREMER’S PERFECT DAY" - MONSTER CHILDREN VIDEO PIECE]]> http://www.getecovers.com/blog/wes-kremers-perfect-day http://www.getecovers.com/blog/wes-kremers-perfect-day

Here's a bit more from Monster Children on the video:

"We’ve all had them, those perfect days."

"Nothing all that special happens, you know, you wake up feeling fine, sun shining. With no pressing obligations, errands or chores, you go to the room you like chilling in the most, sit there, get a loose idea of what the day will hold; nothing so binding that you’d call it a plan, something more of a framework. Figure you’ll head over to the warm-up spot, some bros show up, and you end up skating all day. Nothing heavy, just tinkering around, skate some nugs, cruise down to the beach. Those days can be the most satisfying—the ones riddled with spontaneity.

Andrew Peters linked with Wes Kremer on such a day at his home in San Diego and chilled for the day. The two were able to very eloquently string something together that accurately captures the zeitgeist of an idyllic San Diego day. Wes’ skating is a joy to witness, be it down a 20-set or a slappy curb, and it’s cool to see him bopping around his natural habitat, emphasized all the more by Peters’ artful approach in shooting it. I anticipate a heavy influx in “who’s skating?” texts as a result of this one. Enjoy."

The DC Surf team headed to France last month and found themselves with more lay days than not. When the waves were good Bruce Irons, Kanoa Igarashi, Leo Fioravanti and Zeke Lau pulled into heavy beach breaks and when they weren’t they traveled through the Basque Country finding other ways to have fun, going to events, go-karting, and road tripping.

<![CDATA[Tommy Fynn- Push, Part 1]]> http://www.getecovers.com/blog/tommy-fynn-push-part-one http://www.getecovers.com/blog/tommy-fynn-push-part-one /

Our boy Tommy Fynn teamed up with Thrasher for 'Push'- Episode one of a series exploring the level skaters go to nail the one trick and the hurt they put themselves through on the way. Tommy is a true warrior when its comes to this shit.

The first step in putting together footage for a part is communicating with your filmer. You can’t your lensman to read your mind, so talk it out. Tommy Fynn has this down—keeping his filmer in the loop, continually planning and revising—as he throws tricks against the wall to see what sticks. Communication is key. When Tommy eventually gets that clip, his filmer is right there capturing every cheeky moment.

Element's squad is massive and loaded with rippers from all corners of the globe. The team kicks off this vid with a killer montage, and then Evan Smith grabs the reins and rides off into the sunset. He’s seriously one of the most gifted skaters ever, just flowing like water.

Evan has just put in a seriously worthy bid for skater of the year.

Have you seen #TheFourthPhase yet? If your answer is no, we suggest you find the biggest screen and the hellest sound system you can, then watch that thing.

Long story short- Travis only uses the best, and this boot is Travis’. So the proof is in the pudding...

DC's Wes Kremer and Thaynan Costa join the DC Europe team on a romp through the UK. Their itinerary was packed with amazing spots and loads of sightseeing, too. The team even managed to visit one of the most enigmatic monuments in Europe: an ancient, possibly neolithic, burial ground with large stones arranged curiously in all manner of odd shapes and combinations; rumor has it that dark forces once tried to destroy the wondrous monument, but their plan was thwarted. They call it "South Bank.”
