Chase has been out with the Big Dirties crew and the results are as sick as ever. What better way to spend a hot September than sessioning with Slappy Frank in a perfectly dry park. We’ll be keeping you updated on Chase and the rest of the team as the Fall gives way to Winter and make sure even on those darkest of winter days you will have some footage to warm you up!
This Friday June 3rd make sure you are at the Pioneer Park at 4pm! For those who missed it last time there will be a free BBQ, tons of CIRCA swag thrown out as prizes for best trick on all your favourite park features. Whether you are only just rolling on your first board or looking to get sponsored get down and get involved in the second of our bi-weekly skate jam series… See you there… AG
Next time you’re in the park and you see Chase ask him. I know there are a million reasons why he has been smiling a lot recently. For one school holidays are coming and with those comes a Summer away from responsibilities like homework and making it to class. Other than this though. He’s skating better than ever, traveling to see his favourite skaters in Seattle and Vancouver. All good reasons to be stoked. Sometimes to find the answer you need to start at the very bottom and work up. So next time you see Chase look at his feet. On these you will find the very latest offerings from the latest addition to the Alternative Groove shoe wall, Converse Cons.
While Converse has always been synonymous with skate, in their Cons line they have taken this to the next level. Designed by skaters, for skaters is an overused line in the marketing world, but with what Cons are doing with splitting their skate line from their mainstream shoe line you will find everything you need for your Summer skate shoe, and nothing you don’t want, or like.
Come check them out in store and if you don’t know or aren’t sure, ask the always smiling Cons flow team rider Chase about his shoe of choice… AG
Cameron Aldoff is a local kid making big impressions with his stills. Enjoy the photos and expect more over the long summer of skate ahead…

With summer just around the corner, school nearly done and days getting longer, expect to see Cam and the AG skate team killing it. Drop by AG to check out the new AG shop decks, the new Instrumental decks and a store full of summer’s finest clothes, shoes and so much more. Enjoy… AG
Shop decks have landed here at AG. Two sick new 309 designs boards. This year’s deck has all the pop of last year plus the missing secret ingredient that will make this year’s deck the best decision you will make all summer….. For those of you that have been waiting, not only did our shop decks arrive but the epic new offerings from our friends at Instrumental. We have the full Lurk series ready for you and the ever classy Instrumental originals…. AG
The AG skate team is killing it already this Spring and the boys are getting recognized. DVS and sister company Lakai wanted a kid on the streets of Nanaimo in recognition of the sick skate scene here in town. AG has been the home of Lakai, DVS and Matix in Nanaimo for a long time now so our friends came to see us and one conversation on the DVS bench later, they had the name Kaden Martin ringing in their ears. Watch the guy for 5 minutes and you see why they are so pumped to be involved with him. Kaden and the boys are working hard on pumping out some sick new footage so check back to see Nanaimo’s only Lakai, DVS and Matix skater getting it done… AG
The sun is shining, the park is dry and Chase Torrie is shredding for Cons. As Spring firmly plants itself on the Island, AG team rider Chase is stoked about his new Cons Pappalardo OX shoes. “They’re really nice and they skate real good” says Chase, and with more deliveries dropping at the store every day come in and grab a set before you head to the park, hit the streets or go rip the bowl. This kid is set for big things and AG is stoked to support him all the way. A big thanks and shout out to our friends at Cons for making this happen. Check in regularly to see footage, results and photos as Summer unfolds… <
