“This dude looks like he should be in the Misfits.” We can’t remember who said this while watching Andrew Allen’s Hockey 2 part, but we back it. Although he’s maybe a little too nice. With style, power, a nonchalant demeanor and unassuming approach, Andrew has become one of our favorites. So we loaded up the gear and went to spend some time in his old stomping grounds, an odd OC community called San Juan Capistrano to see where it all started. We pet llamas, saw where he started skating and toured his childhood home all before heading to LA to skate with Terp and AVE. But it’s all there, go watch, all new Fairly Normal starring Andrew Allen.

Fairly Normal: Dane Reynolds Episode 024: A norm core look into the world of Dane Reynolds and his family
Fairly Normal: Matt Meola Episode 015
We joined Matt and his family for a weekend of surfing, fishing, hunting and found nothing but hospitality and friendliness on the valley isle.
Fairly Normal: Creed McTaggart Episode 014
He’s the gypsy. The wild man. The vagabond. The dude who smokes. Nti Sheeto. This is Us. Yeah Dude. Incredible talent. Free spirit. Kind-hearted. Lizard. Fun. Hessian. Human. Yes, he is many of these things and much more
Fairly Normal: Christian Fletcher Episode 013
An honest, authentic, death-defying Fairly Normal on Christian Fletcher and the infinite and un-ending influence he’s had on us all.
Fairly Normal: Dolan Stearns Episode 012
It’s rad to meet someone like this. It’s nice to know they still exist, beneath the surface of the mainstream, drawing, skating, creating and fucking shredding.
Fairly Normal: Ryan Callinan Episode 011
Hit play, devour some of our bandwidth and meet the modest man who’s making Merewether Beach so proud — and start to understand why we’re so certain he’ll be grabbing a lot more of that spotlight he’s earned very soon.
Fairly Normal: Luke Davis Episode 010
It may not translate to results on the WQS, but there aren’t many people we’d rather watch high-line and arc. He’s the kind of surfer who could never do another air and we’d still enjoy every nuance of his style.
Fairly Normal: Noa Deane Episode 009
He has one of those styles rooted in unpredictability and recklessness, hucking himself at sections, but doing it with flow (a la young Dane Reynolds)
Fairly Normal: Dave Rastovich Episode 008
Meet the dude we all thought we knew but now realize we’ve only just scratched the surface on.
Fairly Normal: Austyn Gillette Episode 007
A lethal combination of style, technical prowess and the most precise bit of fuck-it, all baked in to produce what has become the new elite in modern skateboarding.
Fairly Normal: Dillon Perillo Episode 006
“Waiting in line at an amusement park is like going through the airport TSA line 20 times to go on a variety of 20 second plane rides.”
Fairly Normal: Chippa Wilson Episode 005
You’ll see us eat some nachos and get to the bottom of why skaters think we’re pussies, then spontaneously hop a plane to a lonely desert
Fairly Normal: Jack Freestone Episode 004
The perfect day with Jack Freestone: a coffee, shit-talking, a fun surf at D-Bah, lunch, shit-talking resumes, another really fun surf at Kirra, a beer on the veranda, barbecue. Fin!
