2014 Agenda Trade Show, Long Beach, Calif.
Welcome to Agenda Show 2014
Each year, the Agenda Show returns to Long Beach, Calif. to showcase the very latest in action sports brands, street wear gear, apparel and more. Known as the forum where street wear and action sports brands come to unite, Agenda returned to the Long Beach Convention Center this week, and here are a few highlights.
Fans flocked to the entrance as soon as the first day of the Agenda Show opened on Tuesday.
Baker Boys Distribution
Steve Hernandez of Baker Boys Distribution explains some of the new Deathwish "Walk of Shame" Series decks to one of the many camera crews on hand.
Billionaire Boys Club
Pharrell Williams has a lot of projects going on, including music, fashion, books and a new bike company. But at Agenda the focus was on his ever-evolving Billionaire Boys Club. It's cool to see Pharrell's BBC brand finally catching up to his own personal style.
Skateboards have always made good street pillows, but thanks to Dom DeLuca, they now make good pillows for your home. Although they have a full range of skater-endorsed graphics, Dom prefers to snuggle with the brand new Christian Hosoi Board Pillow.

The Skateboard Mag
Since its inception, The Skateboard Mag has been publishing inspiring skateboarding photos, often more focused on the beauty of the overall image over the particular skater or trick being down. At Agenda, their booth featured an exhibit showcasing ten years of their favorite skate photography.
