On September, 16, 2022, Shota Kubo was knighted into an elite club by the founding statesmen of skateboarding, forever cementing his life’s work into the distinction of merit we define as Dogtown. While Shota’s father, Shogo, was being honored with a tribute skateboard to celebrate his contributions to our culture, Shota was unknowingly about to hit a milestone very few achieve.
Jim “Red Dog” Muir, founder and fearless leader of Dogtown Skateboards and maestro of surf skate culture, hosted what was to become one of the most significant nights in skateboarding history with the presentation of the Shogo Kubo tribute board at Common Space Brewery in Hawthorne, CA. The artwork created to celebrate Shogo was emitted with heart and soul by the legendary artist, Axis, who honored this opportunity by bringing some of his best work to date, respecting the traditions on which Dogtown was built.
Eric Dressen, who is undeniably one of the best skaters to rise from the gritty streets to a globally recognized force in skateboarding, took to the stage to the soundtrack of admiring applause by the incredible crowd on hand. Under the cloak of what was thought to be a tribute speech about Shogo Kubo, Eric began to speak as Shota unsuspectingly stood behind the stage listening.
With one sentence, Eric changed Shota’s life forever with the ultimate surprise simply saying, “We are not only here to honor Shogo Kubo and the new board release and beer, we are here to celebrate his son, Shota Kubo – continuing the family legacy, the new Dogtown pro, Shota Kubo!”
As the crowd erupted with cheers of validation, Jim Muir held a skateboard over his head and Shota stood speechless and in total shock, as he was honored with the well-deserved status of pro skater for Dogtown Skateboards. As Red Dog stated, “I want to personally tell you how much I love Shota Kubo. He’s family and I am so proud to have the honor to give him this pro model skateboard.”
What a fun night was had by all. Shota's new model is available for sale now as well as his Dad Shogo's 'Tribute' model and the Shogo Kubo tribute dry hopped pilsner beer can be purchased directly from Common Space brewery here.
It is our pleasure to present these boards each signed and numbered by Jesse Martinez, the Patron Saint of the Venice Skatepark, a lifetime ambassador of Skateboarding, and pioneer of Street Skating on his 1987 original pro Model shape. These custom painted boards by Jim Muir are by far the highest quality work to date and have to be seen to be fully appreciated!

‘O’ was a TWS staff photographer and a big supporter of Dogtown riders Dressen, Murray, Oster, Jackson Brothers, etc. in the ’80s and early ’90s. When ‘O’ customized a ‘Triplane’ with a double stinger which was inspired by the 1970s airbrushed graphics and surfboard designs, we knew it was the start of something great and became the XX Stinger. His first releases sold out and through the delays of Covid it seemed like we would never see another one, but through the magic of 'O' he graced us with not one, but 4 different offerings as well as a Stinger T-Shirt all of which are going to be released on Friday, November 19th at 12 pm PST at www.dogtownskateboards.com.
Below are descriptions by O of each each board:
Black on Black/Pink - Hand painted by me, 7 total for sale. Black has always been a fave of many people, it’s kinda: “It’s So Cool, You Don’t Even Know About” Vibe. I painted each deck and they are a personal fave of my series.
Marbled Black Series - 59 Limited Edition, Hand Dipped, Signed and Numbered, each board is completely unique. The Marble/Space is applied by submerging the entire Deck into the water, a feat you must learn, as to not damage the glue and laminates.

Dogtown Skateboards and The Shrine, have come together to release a special, limited-edition, skateboard in celebration of the symbiotic relationship between music,timeless style, and the transformative art of skateboarding.
Dogtown Skateboards was birthed in 1976 out of the notorious Zephyr surf and skate scene that dominated southern California in the ‘70s (as documented in the films “Dogtown & Z-Boys” and “Lords of Dogtown” (starring Heath Ledger and Emile Hersch)), and has since cemented itself as an integral part of not just California-culture, but American culture as we know it.
Dogtown is a world-renowned empire credited as the jumping-off point for the art form we recognize skateboarding as today, and incidentally also the nucleus for the entire extreme sports arena globally. Started by Z-boy Jim Muir himself, Dogtown has consistently held close ties with the world of music and culture. Jim is the older brother of Mike Muir, frontman for the integral Venice-based punk band, Suicidal Tendencies , and the two have gone hand-in-hand since day one. Dogtown ’s relationship with the LA music scene created a shatterproof legacy that continues to inspire current and future generations all over the world.
The Shrine is a Venice-based, down and dirty, rock ‘n’ roll band that was kick-started by charismatic frontman and lifelong shredder, Josh Landau. At 27 years old, Josh is a Santa Monica High School alumni as well as a Venice Beach local. He has been featured in global ad campaigns for Converse Shoes & Marshall Headphones as well as working with Crap Eyewear, Deadwood Leather, Schott. Described by Rolling Stone Magazine as “equal parts Black Flag and Thin Lizzy”, The Shrine continues the true-to-Venice tradition of eating, breathing, and sleeping skateboarding and rock ‘n’ roll. After spending half of 2016 on the road touring Japan, Australia, Europe, and South America, The Shrine has spent first quarter of 2017 at home in Los Angeles working on the new song “I Can’t Control It”.
Drawing parallels between the relationship of Jim and Mike Muir, Josh Landau is the older brother of noted skateboarder, Jason Landau, who spends his days on the grind for illustrious clothing label, Supreme , and upholding his reputation as one of the young and dangerous up-and-comers in the LA pool-skating scene. Both Josh and Jason were featured in Tino Razo’s new book “Party In The Back”, which documents California landscapes and current backyard pool skateboarding. The book received critical acclaim worldwide, with release parties in 5 different countries, as well as the cover of LA Weekly the week it was released.
Shepard Fairey , who has championed the band and hosted performances at his art gallery, has teamed up for this project with a limited collection of t-shirts bearing the classic Dogtown x The Shrine graphic under his Obey Clothing label.
The Shrine X Dogtown skate deck collaboration is a culmination of this deep-rooted union between Venice, skateboarding, and music, decades in the making.
April 27th is the official release party at Black Bar in Hollywood with guest DJ’s Jason Landau (pro skateboarder), Spanto (owner of Born x Raised clothing), Pubes (Obey) and The Shrine themselves.
We look forward to seeing you there.
