After a decade of serving our fans as a unique retail business, we decided to take a breather and focus on new opportunities, selling off our remaining inventory at the beginning of 2014. After much deliberation on where to go next, rather than selling Little Ruler we decided to take a different route that would help give back to causes in our community. The new website will focus on sharing our favorite baby, toddler and kids clothing & gear finds from across the web. In many instances these stores will pay Little Ruler a referral fee if you buy a product though our links, in turn donating a significant portion of these commission to a specific charity each month. Some that come to mind are Board Rescue, the Tony Hawk Foundation, the Sheckler Foundation, Johnny Kicks Cancer, or the Surfrider Foundation. We also plan to implement a voting system were YOU can cast your vote for which charity we donate the money to each month. We currently have very limited resources here, but in the coming months we aim to build out a wide variety of one of a kind features on Little Ruler, and of course always keep you up to date on the latest and greatest young talent in skate, surf and snow! More to come here soon!
We’ve seen some groms get after it before, but I think five year old Gonzalo Morales pretty much takes the win for the youngest ripper I’ve ever seen. Hailing from Peru, it appears “Gonzo” is already getting some flow from Volcom for his skills and determination. Kid is doing gaps and sets of stairs three times as tall as he is? Check out the video below, which was actually posted on YouTube in September.
NHS, the home of Santa Cruz, Creature, Independent & a wide vareity of other brands you love recently celebrated their 40th anniverasy and opened their much anticpiated skate museum to the public. Check out the video below for look at the grand opening day.
13 year old Jagger Eaton got down to business this past weekend at the Kimberly Diamond Cup in South Africa, taking home 50,000 Rands (about $5,000 USD) for his efforts. Check out the video where he nails a backside 180 kickflip and a 360 flip over the gap. Jono Schwan and Andy Macdonald took home 2nd and 3rd place along with some loot.
Four year old Taije Liljestrom is one of the youngest skaters we’ve ever seen. His dad hooked him up with a board for his first birthday, and now when asked “who’s a better skate, him or his dad”, he says “I am”, and why? “Cause I rip” says Taije. He’s having touble getting into some skate camps, as many don’t allow kids under five years old. Taije and his Dad John live in La Mesa California and it appears they skate the local “Dallas” street park.
Fifteen year old Volcom & DC team rider Alex Midler released his 2012-2013 edit a few days ago on YouTube. He’s growing up quick, stomping some heavy tricks on the streets, like switch lipslides on real handrails. Check it out below.
