Serious Drops, an upcoming pro skateboarding and culture podcast led by three skateboard enthusiasts, is about to launch! Karly Moreno, radio host Dejai Jeffries, and singer Jasmine Villegas have been busy preparing for the debut episode scheduled to air on Thursday, September 22.

The show will have a special live session at SneakerCon in Los Angeles on September 15. Guests on the show will include pro skater Robert Neal, co-founder of the footwear prototype studio FCTRY Lab Omar Bailey, and pro skater Theotis Beasley.

Serious Drops will also be the official podcast and media partner for 4DL’s pro skateboarding best trick competition and music festival in March 2024. This event will be held at Optimist Studios and will feature some of the world’s top professional skateboarders, music headliners, and other skate-centric activities and vendors. Pro skateboarder and model Briana King will serve as the event’s emcee.

The competition will match three men and eight women in a head-to-head best trick competition with each pair having three minutes to perform their best trick. Some of the veteran pro skaters who have been confirmed to compete include Robert Neal, Boo Johnson, and Keelan Dadd. Additional competitors will be announced at a later date.

4DL CEO Shelton Lewis is excited for the event and the podcast. “This will be a completely new experience with 4DL, while celebrating skateboarding’s connection to culture with our Serious Drops podcast,” says Lewis.

Be sure to tune in for Serious Drops on Thursday, September 22 to hear the first episode. New episodes will be released every week. For more information, please visit http://idontmissinc.com.

Finally, Tony Hawk has announced that he will donate autograph proceeds to Tyre Nichols’s memorial fund and skateboard park in his honor. It’s a great way to remember and honor the legacy of a skater who was taken too soon.
