I love the way SALBA skates and this classic footage is probably from 1987 at the Upland Pipeline. Salba seems to be quite the the guitar player as well as the second song featured here is from his band "Screaming Lord Salba" with Steve on guitar (I think he sang as well)! Great video clip though! (The original long sleeve Badlands t-shirt sold last week on Ebay. Pretty cool!!!) Also check out SALBALAND!

While checking good old Facebook last week I came across a post from a friend of mine that Christian had a new book out, a life memoir, that was released on 06/12/12 and he was having a Q&A Session about the book at the Sanctuary Church in Westminster, CA, where he's an ordained Associate Pastor. I ordered the book on Amazon and finished it up before the Session and have to admit it was a great read as his live is an inspirational story of Redemption. I'll have to admit hearing Christian speak was very motivating and getting the chance to meet him and having the book signed was an extremely humbling experience.
Hosoi is having another book signing next Wednesday 06/27/12 at the Barnes and Noble at 7881 Edinger Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA at 7 PM. If anyone wants a signed copy of the book I'd be happy to purchase one and get it signed for you and mail it out. I will only charge actual shipping. You'd be looking at $29.08 for the book (including sales tax) plus $5.00 to ship it in the US and $15.00 internationally. Grand total would be $34.08 in the US and $44.08 International if I can get it for less I will refund you the difference. If interested you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 06/27/12 at noon Pacific Standard Time and I'd be happy to have Christian sign a book for you and I'll mail it out right away!
Check out the OC Register ARTICLE and the Hosoi interview at the INDIE SPIRITUALIST as both are great. For those who haven't already seen Christian's 2006 Documentary entitled "Rising Son" and you're a Netflix Streaming Subscriber, you can do so HERE; you won't be disappointed as its an awesome movie!
Also check out HOSOI SKATEBOARDS as Christian recently restarted the company and he has old and new school Hammerhead decks, t-shirts, and stickers along with some great photos and all the latest updates with his skateboarding and ministry.

I have dealt with Snappy before and would have to admit he finds and sells some of the best vintage clothing around; especially in the motorcycle and hot rod category. Above you will see a cut-off jacket/vest, shirts, t-shirts, and jackets he sold within the last couple of weeks. Check out his Ebay listings, both Competed and Current as he always has some amazing items up for sale!
