Travel These Exotic Skateboarding Locations From Around the World
Evolved from a tiny Californian subculture, skateboarding has become a well-recognized and respected mainstream sport all over the world. With the growth of its commercial success and universal appeal, the boardsport is practically everywhere emanating the message of individuality and freedom. What started off when ocean swells were nowhere to be found, has turned into an entire industry, but more importantly, skateboarding has become a culture and to many, an entire lifestyle.
In the earliest days of the sport, surfers tried to recreate their exploits with wooden boards attached to wheels as they maneuvered down banked driveways and slopped pavement. Not long after, the sport began to evolve, shedding its novelty and even developing a certain vocabulary of its own. As the population of skaters grew, skateboarding started expanding from the streets to empty swimming pools. This would be an important advancement for skateboarders, as they were no longer constricted to the natural flow of landscape around them; they could create and explore their own environment.
As the phenomenon grows and skateboarding culture continues to integrate around the world (even being declared an official event in the 2020 Summer Olympics), more and more skate parks and smooth concrete jungles are popping up everywhere. Here we take a look at the more natural, exotic spots to enjoy the sport, from the mountains in Norway to the Zulu heartland of South Africa. via Hypebeast.com

Reebok Is Bringing Back the Shaq Attaq in 2017
Last year, Reebok resurrected the beloved Shaqnosis, opting for a colorway inspired by The Diesel’s stint as “The Big Shaqtus” in Phoenix, even throwing in its proprietary PUMP system for good measure. Now Reebok is doing the same with Shaquille O’Neal’s rookie kicks. And best of all? The drop stay true to the original.
Returning for the first time since 2013 and hot on the heels of last year’s Sneakersnstuff collab, the OG version of the Shaq Attaq echoes the look of 2013′s retro and appears to be a near one-for-one reproduction of the kicks Shaq donned on his way to PPG averages of 23.4 points, 13.9 rebounds and 3.5 blocks for the Orlando Magic and 1992-93 Rookie of the Year honors. Dressed in black nubuck and white leather with a dash of light grey suede, the kicks are highlighted by shiny “Orlando Blue” accents throughout, PUMP tech and Reebok’s first-ever use of Graphlite.
Retailing for $160 USD, the “Orlando Blue” edition of the Shaq Attaq will return to Reebok retailers sometime early next year.

MCLAREN 570GT BY MSO CONCEPT
This week at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, McLaren will unveil the 570 by MSO Concept, offering a preview some of the personalization options that buyers can expect. The car is clad in a striking Pearl White paint job, with glossy Piano Black on the side scoops, front and rear lower fascias and wheels. In the back, there's a titanium exhaust system -- said to be 30 percent lighter than the standard steel unit -- and a heat shield finished in a golden titanium nitride tint, though the color apparently changes to a blue and purple mix as the system heats and cools through its cycle.
An additional interesting feature is the electro-chromic interlayer on the glass roof. Using a touch-sensitive headlining, the roof can be adjusted through five defined points from almost clear to a rich, dark tint, providing privacy as well as protection from the sun.
Customers can also expect premium leather trim and a 12-speaker Bowers and Wilkins audio system. What hasn't changed is the power supply, featuring McLaren's familiar twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-8, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that drives the rear wheels only.
Check out detailed looks below. Also see the McLaren 570S GT4, and revisit news of a McLaren F1 going up for sale. via FreshnessMag.com
