The folks over at ES Footwear were on a skate tour in Lima, Peru when an armed man approached a cameraman, fired a couple of shots, and made off in a getaway car with $13,000 in camera gear.  Amazingly, the incident was caught on film, and the police are currently in hot pursuit of the suspects.

When athletes in the action sports industry make movies, typically it’s nothing more than footage of athletes tearing it up mixed with a killer soundtrack and some hyjinks in-between for comic relief.  Rob Dyrdek, Paul Rodriguez, Ryan Sheckler and Ryan Dunn have just taken it to a whole new level where they’re actually acting in a new Hollywood drama called Street Dreams.

Monday blows.  Plain and simple.  So starting today and running every Monday will be a new TheExtremeScene.com special feature: Mantangled Monday, featuring some of the worst wipeouts ever caught on camera.

Mike Mo Capaldi Wins Battle at the Berrics, Steve Berra Rips on Walt Disney X Games

Berrics.jpg

The Berrics is a skate website and warehouse collaboration by Steve Berra and Eric Koston that ditches the park and focuses entirely on flatland skating.  It's gained tremendous popularity that's culminated with the Battle at the Berrics, a skate contest similar to H-O-R-S-E in basketball where skaters have to replicate the other's trick.  If they fail, they get a letter.  If it spells S-K-A-T-E, you lose.

The Smoking Gun, infamous for posting police reports on celebrity crimes, recently had a contest asking viewers to guess which celebrity wore a sneaker tied to a crime.  While Chris Brown (the man who beat the shit out of Rihanna) was the leading vote-getter, the correct choice was actually none other than snowboarding and skateboarding megastar Shaun White.
