The Hype Train is a crew of skateboarders that managed to find each-other in Southern California. When everyone (The Hype Train) is together and the wheels start turning – everybody starts pushing their limits, going for the thrill seek. Taking skateboarding back to the basics, trying things we never even imagined. All because we push each other, and this vibe runs deep in the Hype Train, making it impossible to see anything impossible.
Pretty interesting read about the current state of the skateboard industry and why a good part of it sucks. I guess its good there is not maloof wheels and boards yet.
