Just got back from Houston, Texas to support my brother Diego at the Es Game of Skate world Am finals. And to be a part of the amazing Make A Wish Johnny Romano skate jam. The world famous GrimCity was there documenting the event and featured me in the event coverage video! I pop up at 5:41 Thanks Grim!

My SCOFF pro lace commercial just came out as well check it out below! I am stoked!

Also GrimCity reviewed my signature pro skate laces and gave it an amazing positive review! Thanks for the love Grim! It starts at 9:09

I also am stoked to announce that I got the cover of the new POWERBAR triple threat boxes again for the next coming year! Which will be sold throughout the world at Wal Marts, Rite Aids, and you name it just about every store that carries Powerbar in general.

As for video progress I am 3/4 done with my shop video part for Driscolls and still have a ways to go on the Struggle SWORN video seeing as how everything is being shot in HD now. The video is coming out amazing though! Thanks to everyone out there that has supported my skateboarding and Struggle Skateboards.

Last but not least I have a winner for my "Design a deck contest". I will announce it in my Contest page hopefully by tomorrow or by the end of the week. I had over 300 entries and by the end of it 1 graphic really stood out above the rest. I also picked an honorable mention which I will feature on my website as well. Thank you to everyone out there around the United States that sent one in you are all amazing artists!

I am super proud to say I got the cover of the new PowerBar 5 bar energy boxes. It's the equivalent of getting the cover of a Wheaties box! You can find them at your local Wal Mart, Rite Aid, you name it. Any store that carries the 5 Bar boxes has my box cover in stock. I am on the front and back of the box of the triple threat boxes on every flavor they make.

The Imperial Valley Press gave me the cover of the Sports Page to! Check out the entire article they featured me in below. CLICK HERE for the website link.

My interview ran in the big SUNDAYS paper. September 12, 2010.

Also I have a full length interview on the SCOFF skateboarding website. My younger brother has an interview there as well alongside me. CHECK IT OUT!

I landed the cover of LEGITIMATE skateboard magazine issue #2.
Super stoked and I have a 4 page spread inside. Complete with a full interview and sequences. I also made the cover of the website!
Look for it at your local core skateshop!

I also got the back cover of the same issue. Its a full page ad by SCOFF skateboarding. Its kind of crazy having both sides. Thank you Legitimate and thank you to anyone that supports my skateboarding and is down for me.
Also got a full interview on the world famous MIRAMAR Longboards website! These dudes are super awesome. Click on the image to read the full interview.

Also last but not least I am proud to announce the official launch of my website.

My first Pro ad for SCOFF skateboarding is out and is featured in the June 2010 issue of Legitimate Skateboard magazine. 

The world famous Basil and Spice did a review on my signature "Vacation" deck. They gave it amazing reviews check out the article for yourself! :)

The following is my part from the Struggle Skateboards Appetizer promo. It is built up of clips that did not make the cut for the Struggle "SWORN" dvd. Which we are hoping to have out by Late July or early August of 2010. 

Also below is my video part for EPIC cameras which will be featured on their website soon. Epic makes amazing action sports cameras. This particular footage was taken from the EPIC wide camera that I attached to my S-One helmet. It gives you an amazing perspective on tricks that you normally do not get to see. Great for learning foot placement on tricks as well. 

I would also like to officially announce that I now ride for DRISCOLLS skateshop in my hometown of El Centro,CA. They have supported and backed me for a long time now! I am super proud to be a part of the team and we are currently officially working on a shop video which will be due out sometime within the next 6 to 8 months. Driscolls has played a pinnacle role in my skateboard upbringing. They are the best!

I have a full page ad for GLAMOUR KILLS clothing in the newest Transworld Skateboarding magazine May 2010 issue. The whole ad campaign that Glamour Kills has been doing looks amazing! 

Also got a full on feature on the BOARD JOY website. Board Joy is like an Ebay but for all things related to board sports. Its an amazing new original type of website that is the first of its kind.  You can sell your board or purchase one all through the same website. Check out the site for full features and check out the interview they hooked it up with. 

I was also recently the guest reviewer for Legitimate Skateboard Magazines "WORTHY LOOK REVIEW". I did a full on review of Activision's TONY HAWK:RIDE game. The game is the closest you will get to skateboarding without actually going out and skateboarding. I absolutely loved it and I highly recommend it to anyone into skateboarding or into interactive video games. 5 stars!

And below are the last 3 custom graphic griptape sheets from my signature pro line on CLEVER griptape
(Below) "Imperial Valley Sun" graphic. In honor of the Imperial Valley where I was born and raised. It also matches with my new Struggle pro deck which is due out in two weeks. 
(Below) "Suicide Mission" graphic. 
(Below) "Clever Fem" graphic.

Also recently went out and had some fun with some more taildevils that my good friends over at Taildevil sent over. Check out the video below. 

And lastly I would like to give a shout out to my little baby brother Diego Najera and congratulate him on getting 10th place out of 159 of the worlds top Amateur skateboarders at Phoenix Am this past weekend. I'm proud of you brother!

I am proud to introduce my first ever Pro signature skate lace by Scoff Skateboarding. The good people at Scoff threw a signature release party for me and it was tons of fun. Thanks to everyone that came out and supported. I truly appreciate it. My signature laces are black and gold and have the amazing one of a kind Diamond Application Process that makes them the most durable skate laces on earth! They are the first ever pro signature skate lace in the history of skateboarding. Huge thanks to Driscolls skate shop for holding the release party at their shop and thank you to all the skateboarders and supporters that came out and hung out with me and the Scoff crew in the rain!

You can order my signature skate laces HERE!!

Scoff also surprised me with a Pro signature limited edition Scoff Mantis shirt. Only 12 made! Each shirt is numbered and it features a gold reflective ink print on the front which is pretty sweet! Big thanks to Scoff for that as well they came out super good! You can get one of the limited edition shirts HERE!!

I am also super stoked to announce that I am now riding for CLEVER griptape! They have also given me and released my first Pro signature griptape graphic for their new line. I will be doing an entire line of 4 griptape designs for them. The awesome graphic below being the first of four to come. I like to call it "Angler Adventure".

Check their website out on the regular. My signature griptape sheet will be up for sale on their site within the next few weeks maybe even sooner! Click here for their website CLEVER griptape.

My new board for Struggle Skateboards is done as well and will be on sale in early April of 2010.
My boards graphic is dedicated to my hometown and all the locals that live there. This is for all of you! Never forget where you came from. IMPERIAL VALLEY!!!!!!!!!!
The entire new Struggle Skateboards line is rad. We have a whole hometown theme and even gave our Am Diego his own color way on a deck.
I also got the back cover of the new Legitimate skateboard magazine. Its an advertisement for the Struggle Skateboards video "SWORN".

We are super hard at work on this video and the goal is to have it out by late April of 2010.
And lastly the newest news to announce would be the addition of EPIC action video cameras as my newest skateboarding backer. They are an awesome company with an amazing product. I cant wait to post up some sample footage with the cameras in action. They will give skateboarding films an entirely new perspective and I'm pumped to get some rad new clips with them. Check out their website and I should have some footage up within the next month with the cameras.

Happy New Year everyone! Got some big updates! I have been featured in the episode premier of a new show called "The Xchange". Its an artist on artist feature and I am teamed up with my good friend Blake Lewis. Many of you may know him from American Idol. He is an awesome musician with superb beatbox skills. I am honored to be a part of the first episode. Thanks a ton to the great people at POWERBAR for hooking it up! I had a blast on set! You can check out the full episode below. There is also a miniature commercial version of the episode that will air as a commercial during the Dew Tour.

And here is the commercial teaser version.

I also have a Struggle Skateboards ad in the February 2010 issue of Transworld Skateboarding. Check it out below.
The trick above will be in my Struggle Skateboards "SWORN" part. I am working super hard on my part and pretty much come back from every film trick beaten and worn out. I promise to have a full part. My teammates have slamming parts in progress as well. Tyrone Olson, Anthony Johnson, my baby brother Diego Najera, Mariano Valenzuela, and all the RDT dudes have been seriously ripping. We have a Struggle Skateboards Arizona tour in the near future which will be super rad but for now we are super busy filming for the "SWORN" video giving it 101%.

And FINALLY I am proud to announce the release of my Pro Signature Shoe Lace for SCOFF skateboarding! I have been on Scoff since the start of the company so it feels amazing to finally have the first ever Pro lace for Scoff. Its going to be solid black with a luxurious gold stripe through the entire lace. It features the new "Diamond Application Process" technology which makes the lace the strongest you could possibly imagine. You honestly wont ever need to switch your laces on your shoe ever! I can almost guarantee the shoe will blow out way before the lace will and I am pumped on that. Scoff as a company is amazing and worked with me fully in detail to create this lace to exact specifications. So if your tired of your laces ripping on you the answer is here. No joke!

Scoff is throwing a party for me for my signature lace release and will be posting up the full details soon so in the meantime check on their site within the next few days and they should have everything up that you need to know to be there. SCOFF SKATEBOARDING
There will also be a Scoff Skateboarding/Struggle Skateboards contest on the STRUGGLE Skateboards site in which you can win my new laces and deck. Check it out for more details. Information will be posted up any day now!
