Sorry for the lack of posts the last couple of weeks. Things have been pretty hectic around here. Went up to mammoth this last weekend with Inspetrum rider Dave Rickett over the last weekend. I made Dave do all the hard stuff. Here is a little recap.
Dave starting things out right.
Made a quick little skate stop in lone pine on the way. Fun little park with some weird but interesting obstacles. Dave got this frontside grind up and over.
Dave catching stuff.
Decided to skate mammoths “other park”
And lastly brown trout look awesome.
The art department (Nicky Gaston) came to town over the weekend to skate. enjoy our amazing heat and learn about juggalos. Here are a few of the highlights.
Nicky Frontside Crail.
Jumping over stuff.
Switch Barely grind.
Also over the weekend Inspectrum alumni Dylan Williams did his best “Guy Mariano in the credits of mouse impression, although not switch.”
Recently a costumer bought a shirt from are online store and was charged $11 in shipping bringing his total to$38 for one shirt. Thats way to much for one shirt if you ask me so I refunded his shipping cost and removed shipping from everything in our online store within the lower 48 states.
Sad news in the skateboard world last week with the death of Alien Workshop. Alien was a big inspiration to us over here at Inspectrum. I’ll admit that the name Inspectrum was partially inspired by my love of this graphic when I was first started skateboarding.
Also these two montages where pretty heavily influenced by there work in the video department, although not near their level.
Here is a good article about what could have caused their downfall. Lastly here is an excellent best of montage by the one and only Manolo tapes.
Enough reminiscing. Our new Western Series finally came in. Featuring more amazing artwork by Nicky Gaston and guaranteed not to be a scooter, how could you pass these up?
That means we’re aloud to have one, right?
In the “Bakersfield actually has a skatepark worth skating” department, this place came out pretty cool. Let’s hope they don’t get to crazy with the pad enforcement like they did in Beach Parks earlier years.
We’re running a little sale in our online store to make room for our new board graphic release later this week.
Let’s hope front nosing five stairs becomes a new trend. #noseslideordie
Twinkie shaped parking blocks are cool.
If you haven’t seen it go out and pick up the June 2014 issue of The Skateboard Mag to see Matt’s instacrops of the year win in full print glory.
Dave likes to grind rainbow rails and catch long skinny trout.
Speaking of trout, The Fish Don’t kill my vibe shirts have been added to the Online store.
I petted the rainbow trout.
As Always, Adam likes to pole dance.
We’ll Matts part is finally out.
I also printed our first run of these last week. Should have them up in the online store by the end of the week. Super hyped on this one!
A buddy of mine built some sick DIY up in the mountains. It’s always good to see people taking matters into their own hands.
Just found out via the slap forums that we have shitty art direction. Thanks for the head up dudes!
I’ve known Matt Since he was 14. He’s been this good the whole time. Go ahead and press play now.

Watch me ramble on about skateboarding and how Inspectrum skateboard co came to exist in this short film.
In a side note, 23 news did an article about the new planz park and decided to bootleg a bunch of Inspectrum footy with out permission. They also apparently don’t allow embeded videos so you’ll have to follow the link.
Last but not least, there will be a Matt part this week.
Well we lied. The Matt Guerrero intro part still isn’t done. However we do have a few things for your view pleasure this week. Starting with this super rad remix of some old bakersfield legends from around 1996-1998 including a very young Devine Calloway. I’m so glad this footage rose to the surface after all these years. Pat did a great job putting it together in a way that makes for an enjoyable watch.
Here’s a trailer for a small documentary on myself and Inspectrum. I believe it will go live next Monday.
Just added our Curb Club shirt to our online store. It’s rumored to improve your curb skating by 3%.
In spot news it looks like the I-5 ditch is skateble again.
We said we would have Matt’s part done but as things often go we had technical difficulties. We are hoping to have it finished by this friday. It will be worth the wait. Until then enjoy this back tail gif.
Drove by the Planz plaza today. It’s looking really good. Can’t wait for it to be finished. Only one bad photo for now.
More classic shots of Mcdonalds banks seem to keep trickling in. Loving this one of Karma.
Looks like Everens Modeling career is really starting to take off.
