Showcasing the latest styles and tricks, videos are a huge part of the skateboard industry. Every year a shit ton of videos come out, but these in my opinion are the best of the best. Now I know for a fact that alot of you won’t agree with this list, and you are entitled to your opinion, no matter how gay or wrong you are. My advice: make your own top ten on your own website, doucheface! (more…)
If you don’t know about Shake Junt by now, then you better ask somebody bitch! Always keeping it g-code, they’re busting out with some new shit for the new year. The shirts are lookin super fresh, particularly the Bryan Herman and Braydon Szafranski signature Chicken Bone designs. (more…)
People skate for different reasons, but most people ride for one reason: Skateboarding is Fucking Magical! It’s not just a sport, but a whole culture. It’s inspired everything from music and movies, to video games and fashion. So, with that being said, here are some more reasons to get a shred stick.
1. It’s fun…duh
Even just cruising down the street doing flatland tricks excites my nether region……just kidding
2. Girls like it.
Do a 360 flip in front of most chicks and watch their panties drop.
3. Dirtbikes are gay
Sure they’re fun for an hour or two….just don’t buy Dickies and turn into a “Bro”.
4. Being a Rockstar is overrated
Everyone and their mother plays guitar now thanks to Rock Band.
5. Video games get boring
Unless you smoke a ton of pot. Then you probably don’t skate much anyway.
6. It gets your fat ass outside
If you’re already skinny, then good for you motherfucker!
7. Make crazy awesome friends
Way better than hanging out with the guy next door who watches UFC and listens to Linkin Park. To me skaters just tap into this “coolness” that not many other people do.
8. Exploring and interacting with the city
Skaters see all the crazy places in a city, like behind stores, alleys, abandoned buildings, etc…..Every time I go skate it’s still an adventure.
9. The way it feels to land a big trick
You never forget. People who don’t skate will never understand.
10. You get exposed to awesome music and art
Through skate videos and magazines, you’ll see and hear some of the most creative artists out there. I’ve found so many bands from watching videos.
