Chicago Skateboarder On The Rise – Emmet Duffy Interviewed

Chicago Skateboarder On The Rise – Emmet Duffy Interviewed

I don’t remember meeting Emmet Duffy, but since we both skate, the relationship will always be timeless. In these years we’ve traveled, stunted, freestyled, and most importantly kept it real. Emmet has been doing the damn damn for quite some time now, leaving boxes and ledges scared to show face, flipping in and out with about as much effort as it takes to make your heart beat. Knowing this, it was inevitable that the industry...

How To Create The Itis 2.0 Breakfast Sandwich

How To Create The Itis 2.0 Breakfast Sandwich

During college, most people don’t have the luxury nor skills to create a healthy, balanced breakfast that is not only quick to make, but is hearty enough to keep you moving.

How To Wire A Puch Maxi The Fast Way

When it comes time for rewiring a Puch Maxi Moped, the task seems a bit daunting.  Even with a wiring diagram, you can get lost among all the symbols, switches, grounds, and whatever else is on that page.  With zero electronics experience, I was the same way. Luckily Clint, a fellow Tom Cruiser, came to the rescue with his black belt in the art of electrons. He’s our electrical dude in the crew, so we got down to business...

This Is Hustle Overflow

This Is Hustle Overflow

Hustle Hard. That’s what’s on my calendar every day.  Moreso, hustle is a mindset that I live by. I bet you do too. Many people live to work, while many others work to live.  Work does not equal hustle, but hustle can take the place of work.  What’s the difference? Simple.
