A departure from the fuzzy, blistering guitars and bold rock sound of Vice Verses, Fading West takes the classic Switchfoot style and infuses a vast array of cultural influences collected during their 2012 World Tour that can be heard within the rhythms and sonic tapestry of the new record. With daring synth lines, inventive guitars and anthemic harmonies, this collection of songs is bigger and more powerful than anything the band has released to date. Rooted in the same hopeful message and quick turn of phrase that fans have come to love, Fading West is a renewed expression of change, hope and discovering your place in the world.
Long before the word “boss” started getting tossed around everyday, Bjorn defined it. He still does. Such an amazing snowboarder, he is always down to strap in, whether it is AK lines, Minnesota streets, or nearly melted out Colorado couloirs.

Kent Sherwood (Jay Adams’ step-dad) was the man behind the manufacturing of the Zephyr Fiberglass skateboard. In 1976, Jay Adams and Kent split from the Zephyr team and started the short lived E-Z Rider brand that then became Z-Flex Skateboards that is still around today. With his refined skill in fiberglassing they launched the first Z-Flex skateboards in 1976 from his workshop in Venice. Coming out initially with three different shapes, with the inclusion of the Jimmy Plumer later, Z-Flex Skateboards was one of the premier skateboard brands of that era.
Now generations strong, Z-Flex remembers its rich history and continues its path of determination and dedication to skateboarding through a limited release of iconic Z-Flex Vintage Premium (ZVP) products.
To celebrate the heritage of skateboarding and the brand, Z-Flex reunited team members from the past as well as fellow skaters of the 70’s to re-tell the ever-popular Dog Town story from the people that actually lived it.
In the two part mini-documentary series- take a trip back to the 70’s to relive the skaters, spots, style, and products that shaped skateboarding as we know it today.
