It's been a pretty fun year, although we only started in September, a lot has happened. Just want to thank everyone again for all the love and support you've given us, we really appreciate it! We're definitely kickstarting 2012 with much more product, updates, videos/commercials by us, and getting our main idea for Cruizees concreted (You'll understand what we're talking about in the near future). And what better way to start the new year off than with a brand new video part coming tomorrow from Crewman Nick Zizzo!

Sorry about the lack of posts again! Hopefully you've been just as busy as us and haven't had time to check the site. Truth is our boy Santa came into town to get an early start on delivering his presents, and we met up with him to document his journey through Gainesville. Yes the urban legend is true! Although, he doesn't use reindeer and a sled to commute- instead he shreds and kills beer!

Actually, Sean Conover came back into town for the holidays and did the commercial for us. Thanks Sean! Also, a special thanks to Erik Knudsen for the second shots!

Happy Holidays everyone! Go get your last minute presents at the shop!

I know some of you have been asking us to put up pictures of people wearing the jackets, and I said they'd be up a couple of days ago but this weekend was pretty busy so we ask for your forgiveness. Here are some photos we took last weekend of the Tampa heads that came through for the 2nd party, and some of a more closer look. (Click on the images for an even better look!)

CRUIZEES JACKETS ARE NOW FOR SALE! Available in the original logo (front/back) and the new FL Cruizer logo (front/back).

                        front (left chest)



Ok so yeah talking about your own product might just seem like we're trying to sales pitch ya', but that's not the case. Let's be real, we're skateboarders, not telemarketers or car salesmen. Nevertheless, these jackets are high quality; the interior lining is 100% polyester and it has drawstrings at the bottom to seal in warmth. Not very many windbreakers keep you warm besides block the wind.
We chose windbreakers for the winter season instead of sweaters because you can pretty much choose the temperature you want at anytime with the snap buttons. They're also extremely light weight so skating in them is easy (not to mention how kewl you'll look when you push past some girlies). They're beer spill resistant, and to top it off they're only $25! Try finding one cheaper somewhere else!
We wouldn't lie to you when it comes to the sincerity of our stuff. I mean we know the koozies suck and they don't fit cans that good... WE'LL ADMIT IT!

Click on "CRUIZEES SHOP" on the top right side of the page to get yourself one!

...For another great turnout for the Speedball party with Cruizees! We didn't take any photos of the party ourselves this time, but luckily got ahold of this cool edit that pretty much captured the whole night made from a good friend, Priscilla Bass. Thanks to everyone that supported Cruizees and for all those who showed love towards the new jackets design! We're glad you're all hyped! Jackets will be up for sale later on this week and an edit of the wallride contest will be up soon. Stay tuned!

Tonight is the Speedball Fundraiser party! This is not one to miss! We got DJ's mixing it up all night, a bar ran by friendly faces with bottled beer and Jameson shots. A few short edits premiering, including a SKULLRASH montage, exclusively for the party! Then the highlight of the night; a wallride contest! If that doesn't motivate you enough then let me tell you that the Cruizees jackets will be available at the party along with Cruizees pocket-tees and Koozies! It's CASH ONLY so bring your spending money and get your hands on some of this one of a kind gear! See all of you fools there, and while your at it wish Matty B a happy birthday!

Magenta skateboards comes through again with another amazing edit. They always have sick ideas for their montages, as far as songs, filming, titles, and so on. Peep this Battle at Normandy edit they just released on their site and make sure you rewind that Jimmy Lannon line.

OG Crewman, Pj Castellano is one of my favorite dudes to watch on a skateboard, hands down. He's got ill steez and the best switch flips in the game. It's rare to see footage of him on the web even though he's got plenty of it hidden away some place. So as soon as I saw he released this last one, "Depth of Wheel", of him cruizin' around I had to put it up; along with this gangster ass edit filmed and edited by Stephen Buggica himself.

Once again, Colin [Read] blows everybody away with another insane New York Clip for SLAP Magazine! WOW! I'm currently at a loss of words as I was for the last one (Subway Skating) which I didn't think could get any better than that, so in Colin's own words; "Skitches, hood rides, bumper grinds, tight squeezes and close calls--this is New York City skateboarding."... HELL I'D SAY THAT'S MORE LIKE SOME SERIOUS ASS CRUIZIN'! MANDIBLE CLAW SUCKAZ!

...Looks like Philly is more occupied by bums then I thought was allowed. Why doesn't the government just shut them down and kick them out of there? Out of all cities for that fact...If you're a skateboarder then you know by now that these occupy groups are making it extra hard for us to go skate in the downtown cities then it already was. Meanwhile in Philly all these protesters have made Love Park nearly impossible to skate. This video shows a group of skateboarders fighting back for their skate spots and making a good damn edit while they were at it. Enjoy

If you haven't seen or heard of him by now, then let this be the first of many times to come. Although, unfortunately, not a Crewman he rips too hard for recognition to be ignored; he'll cruise your face off! The Swede, Pontus Alv destroys everything along with all the other Swedes at that insane looking DIY spot. Yeah sure he puts wood and make shift little ramps up to rails, but we think he makes it work. Who gives a shit about what is or isn't excepted in a part; maybe you do, but we think it's rad!

 Oh yeah, Cruizees jackets will be done by next week!

Staying on the New York and East Coast tip we bring you a very well done NYC montage brought to you by our new favorite board company, Magenta. Magenta has been killing it this year making big moves such as turning Jimmy Lannon pro, and constantly putting out amazing montages of their travels. This is their most recent Capsule and one of the best. You also might recognize some familiar faces in here that you might have seen in recent posts.

Since Cruizees was born on the East coast, and most of our ideal skating is based around the East coast, we thought it would be a good idea to post up one of our favorite skateboarders that has always been a stand out to the East coast skate scene, Mr. Danny Renaud. If you haven't been living under a rock your whole life then you know Danny is one of the best skateboarders of all time. Here is Danny's most notorious part, that really put him on the map.

..To follow the last post, it would only be necessary if Colin Read's Newest New York Clip was posted, which demonstrates exactly what Cruizin' means to us. Featuring one of my favorite skateboarders and good friend, Piro Sierra. Soon enough Piro will be reppin' Cruizees gear as part of our New York family, even though he doesn't know yet.

Hello Brooklyn

Bagels, Bros &  Bunion Fingers

Yeah Colin!


First spot. If Fogt can't break his own board, something else will

Fogt, you're a cool ass dude

I got pissed off and threw my board as hard as I could at Colin.

...But instead I hit his camera

He sent in his boys to try to take me out.

Dogs eating up the spot

I close my eyes when I skate



...for a serious bruizin' to end the trip early

Goodbye nice home. I'll miss you!

Back to Gainesville...

Thanks Colin and Jacob for the hospitality, it was fun as quick as it lasted!

So I am posting a video update of another Steve in New York, Steve Brandi. Steve is a very underrated skater from Tampa, FL that moved to NY, whenever he did. I am glad to see that Jahmal Williams recognizes his finesse and style on a skateboard, and immediately introduced him as the newest addition to the Hopps family. I hope with this we will be seeing a lot more from Steve in the near future. Commercial Shot and Edited by Josh Stewart.

I hope that soon, Cruizees, will have some product floating around the skate scene up in New York.

The homie, Jimmy Lannon cruizin' in paradise for his introduction to the Paradise Wheels roster.

The Shaqueefa homies have been killing it for years, now pretty much under the radar. So they got together and put out a short video featuring all the homies from Tampa and a few from Columbus GA; you might even recognize some heads from Mandible Claw's videos. This video brings a little light to Tampa since there hasn't been anything like it in over 5 years. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and while your at it put a fresh beer in your Cruizees Koozie, sit back and enjoy. Filmed and Edited by Stephen Buggica and Joe Pelham.

Nick Zizzo, Dave Bachinsky, and James Coleman are some of the most humbled/gnarliest skaters we know of. All three support Cruizees hard as fuck, and for that they are loved cruizees crewmen. Cheers to Nick, Dave, and James!

Nick Zizzo: Bearly

Dave Bachinsky: Shape Deuce

James Coleman: The Lost Tape

Speedball is a Gainesville based magazine exploiting the local art and street culture here in the city. Matt Town (creator of Speedball) works on the entire magazine from home day and night to ensure quality, and is always guaranteed to get everyone hyped! What other magazine makes a video edit corresponding with the issue released? Debuting seasonly with a limited amount made, you know you have to be at each release party to get a copy of these collectables. 

Cover of the latest issue, 1.3

Last part of 1.3's video corresponding with the issue featuring Cruizees Crewmen, Dante Debose and Ryan Barlow.

Clive "Club Blackout" Dixon and Jesse "Chuey" Stirling both just came out with their first separate video parts recently, and as you can tell they're both pretty good wheelieboarders; that's why they're part of the crew. 


No wonder this team is so good, they're Australian. Australia= Amazing skating/ filming. Hell, even the architecture is amazing. Look at all those buildings and spots!
