Nico Magalhaes, the Real Skateboards/Thunder Trucks/Spitfire Wheels flow trash from New Jersey, had a noise-making part in the homie video "Feelin Friendly" last year and immediately moved to Oakland, Calif., to chase the skateboard dream. He wasted no time chomping on some legendary Nor Cal spots and has amassed two video parts: The first will go on Spitfire's site soon and the second on another Deluxe site. Expect to hear a lot more from this Magalhaes this year.
