Montain Dew: Three new electric flavours. One extreme Idea.
A fully functioning pinball machine you can skate. This world first skatepark makes you the ball in a 600 square foot machine rigged with sensors, sounds and lights, to score your run just like pinball.
Park open 4-26 June. Gate 2, Hickory Ave, Henderson (New Zealand). (Vimeo).
The pinball park allows you to record your high score or to create a halo 360 of one of your trick (20 cameras recording a still picture on various angles). Check the official website.
Built in only 17 days for an upcoming competition, this park cost almost $500,000 to create and will remain open for only 3 weeks once the contest is over.
A true replica of a pinball machine down to the lights, sounds and launcher at the beginning, this park is a dream come true for anyone who has ever been a teenage skater. (Hypebeast).
The Making of Skate Pinball

Dominic Sagona is an icon for our sport, he has shaped blading into what it is today, and the best part is, he is still going strong.
Dominic is one of our good friends, he recently moved to Arizona, and we’re honored to have him be a part of our skate scene. Dominic keeps things simple in his life, he focuses on his skating, music, and family.
After 18 years of blading, looking at things in retrospect, the past year alone has been an enormous upward spike for me in the game of life.
With the help of amazing friends, and colleagues, I have this compilation of deals chopped together and ultimately created by the wonder team behind OG.
The filming experience graced me the pleasure of getting closer with amazing people such as Sam DeAngelis, Cesar Macay, Hector “Tato” Ganzalas, & Dan Fabiano in particular who kept me motivated and were always ready to work around my wild schedule between being a therapist and a blader.
The most important ingredient in the outcome of this short would have to be the work ethic and faith in the companies growth and direction. It is about embracing evolution to me.
As far as the products go, I personally had minimal problems from the beginning. With constant renovations of the frame mold & compound; I’ve had more or less no complaints. They have survived my blading through the past year and it’s been a fun and fresh ride the whole way through.
Always solid and always sliding. Thank you incredibly much to those I’ve mentioned and the dear friends that were around throughout those random sessions. Ya’ll know who you are. Thank you east coast, thank you west coast, thank you all coasts. Shred life. – Franco Cammayo.
