How Rob Dyrdek & Brian Atlas Built & Sold Street League

If you follow industry news, you may have caught the headline that Street League and its production company, Superjacket, were merged with Nitro Circus in January 2020. The timing couldn’t have been better considering the effect that COVID-19 would have a couple of months later. It resulted in last year’s SLS season being cancelled, and the Olympics being postponed until this summer.

In the latest episode of his podcast, Rob Dyrdek sits down with Street League cofounder, Brian Atlas, for a postmortem of sorts. They discuss launching the contest as well as ETN, and the successes and failures experienced along the way. Despite an excess of finance and start-up speak, it’s an interesting conversation that’s worth a listen.

It’s Official: Spencer Hamilton Announces NB# Deal

Spencer Hamilton has been prolific over the past year or so. His hard work has paid off in the form of signing a deal with NB#, which is revealed at the 55:04 mark of the latest episode of The Bunt.

I’ve been loving the Tiago. You know how it is. When you get to your 30s, your feet are bruised and battered. You need some protection. I don’t know how these kids skate in these thin-ass shoes. Ever since I’ve been skating the Tiagos, I’ve been feeling pretty good. Yeah, I just recently signed on with New Balance.
