This week kicks off the Triple Crown on the North Shore of Oahu. If Airwalk surfer Granger Larsen can get some solid results in this contest, he’ll be on the World Tour next year. We’re cheering for you, buddy!
Airwalk surfer Granger Larsen packed his surfboard and flew across the Atlantic to hit up the Cascais Billabong Pro. Granger had a pretty good run, making it all the way to the quarter finals.
This last summer, we sent Already Famous team to the Mt. Ollie Church to help the Harold Hunter Foundation out with a skate clinic for the local kids. Aside from having the raddest name for a church, the guys were obviously really stoked to chip in on this really great cause. Check out the video above, which highlights AF crew member, Wade Yates.
Last night at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn, NY, we served up a screening of our skate micro-documentary, We Out Here. Along with the current Already Famous skate team, the rest of the stars of the documentary, as well as industry folk and journalists were on hand for the viewing. Here’s a few of our favorite pics. When you’re done checking them out, head over to Fader to check out their full recap including the streaming documentary.
Longtime Airwalk skater Andy Mac once again proved to us that age is just a number. This past weekend at the Kimberly Diamond Cup, Andy took third for the Big Air contest with a varial lien air (video below) and also snatched up top honors in Vert. With another win under his belt, and sixty grand in his pocket, Andy is probably out shopping for luggage to fit that gigantic check.
Airwalk surfer Anastasia Ashley snatched up third place at the 2013 Red Bull Qiantang River Surfing Tournament in China last weekend. Shoot her a tweet and say congrats!
We’re stoked to announce the release of our Hunter Collection today! This two piece collection features the Hunter shoe, which fuses skateability and street style. This limited edition release is made up with a suede upper, vulcanized sole and a gum rubber bottom. Right along side it is the Hunter tee, sporting one of Harold Hunter’s most classic quotes. A portion of all sales goes to benefit the Harold Hunter Foundation.
Photographer Paul Park was slated with following our Already Famous crew around the streets of Brooklyn to capture a day in the life of these guys. Skaters Justin Kinard and Wade Yates had a full day of hanging with little kids, stopping by a local sub shop and of course hitting up the best shred spots in the city.

Earlier this month we hooked up with the Harold Hunter Foundation to send some of our Already Famous riders out to Woodward for a week of camp. Skaters Wade Yates and Carlo Carezzano boarded a bus, decked out in Airwalk gear, and had a killer time skating, hanging out, and apparently eating a lot of junk food.
Last week at Woodward Camp, Airwalk skater Andy Mac held his annual Up Hill Tic Tac race. Three heats of campers have to tic tac on their boards all the way up a hill. The winner of each heat got a boatload of swag, but the fastest overall time got a a free week at camp for 2014! Check out the video above to see how it all went down.
