Graduation Season Deals

It’s that time of the year again, kegs are being tapped, hot dogs are being grilled, and high school graduated teenagers are enjoying the only summer of their lives where they literally have nothing to worry about. In honor of this tradition, we are offering those who just graduated high school FREE GRIP with any Deck purchase. Additionally, since high school just finished, if your bring in your report card or whatever the hell they’re calling them these days, you can get up to 30% off clothing and shoes purchases. This promotion will be running until Father’s Day, which is ironically Go Skateboarding Day (June 21).

Hey I’m trying to score points with the teacher today. DON’T SCREW IT UP.

New Vans – Crockett Pro & Sk8-Hi

If you haven’t watched Vans ‘Propeller’ yet…well you might as well just stop reading this now and get out from the rock you’ve been living under and go watch it. It’s like 11 bucks on iTunes or you could be hardcore and get an actual DVD. Dealer’s choice. Regardless, it’s an incredible film from an incredible company. So many solid parts from some reputable names in the game. Honorable mentions? AVE, Crockett, Rowan, Grosso, Chima…the list goes on. Hopefully you have also been checking out the Raw Files on Thrasher as well. If not, here’s Andrew Allen and Elijah Berle’s Raw Files…get it together people.

 

We also have new Crockett Pros in and the ever classic Sk8-Hi. Get dem shits before they’re gone.

Shoes are still buy a pair, get the second pair half off so stock up. Stop in, snag two pairs, and get out there. Sun’s shining…

Adidas Shoes and New Decks

Finally seeing some nice weather so there’s no excuse to say you can’t skate. Oh and we now have Adidas shoes in. The Busenitz and the Adi-Ease. Busenitz has a little more cushioning and padding that the Adi-Ease but that’s due to the fact that the Adi-Ease is a vulc shoe. Not saying it’s a lesser shoe but it’s a simple and clean looking shoe. Also we just got a variety of new decks in. Habitat, Deathwish, Expedition One, DGK, Almost, Enjoi and a lesser known brand called The Friend Ship Skateboards. They’re a refreshing reminder of how skateboarding is meant to be fun and carefree; promo vid on the bottom of the page featuring Nick Sommer. Online shop still a work in progress, along with the revamping of the site…

Walker Ryan’s Part & Welcome Skateboards

You should check out Walker Ryan’s Part “A Far Walk From Home”. Why? Cause there’s some pretty cool global spots in there and the man can switch flip and switch 360 flip over some gnarly stuff like a boss.

 

We’d also like to give you the inside scoop of what’s coming new to the shop. If you’ve heard of Welcome Skateboards, you’re in luck. The first thing you’ll notice about these is the deck shapes. Give a man a bandsaw and let the creativity explode. Now we won’t tell you which ones we having coming in but we can tell you that a have a good amount ordered. We suggest you go over and check out the shape guide here. The Time Traveler, Nimbus 3000 and Squidbeak are some of our favorites. The team’s skating is definitely unorthodox but there aren’t guidelines in skating so have at it. Pretty creative moves..

Phatman Edit & Getting Old

Here it is. We finally got our shit together and made an edit. Enjoy!

And for most of us, getting old sucks. You lose hair, put on some weight (maybe not if you would get off of your couch and stop watching the battle at the berrics all damn day) and have to pay more bills. But the the fun part about skating is you can always push and throw down tricks that you know by heart. Just be careful not to slam because you might actually break something. I don’t know what I’m talking about, just watch this. Ishod’s SOTY trip. It’s nawwsty.

BATB 7, Justin Fronius & The Snowboarder Movie

First thing’s first. If you haven’t heard through the grapevine or don’t check the Berrics during winter because you believe skateboarding doesn’t exist during the winter, you gotta get your priorities in line. Battle at the Berrics 7 is coming up and guess what…you can enter. Pros vs. Joes. Go ahead get going. Those nollie tre flips aren’t gonna land themselves. But it is true that the past few Battle at the Berrics have been repeats of household names so this whole Pros vs. Joes thing will be a nice change of pace. And go watch Chaz Ortiz’s Battle Commander. Pow. Mind blown right?

In other news, Justin Fronius snagged Snowboarder’s Rookie of the Year and a took giant shit on everybody else. Okay that may have been a little drastic but the kid’s got hammers. Just watch his edit below. Getting praises from Devun Walsh on backcountry hits? Heavy stuff considering he’s big on urban riding. But that’s what you have to do these days. Hittin’ rails all day is fun & sweet but if you can’t step your game up in the big bad backcountry, well you might as well hang ’em up. Remember when your parents told you that you have to be well-rounded? Same rule applies here. Cheers, Justin.

 

ALSO, a heavy trailer is on Snowboarder Mag’s website right now for their up and coming movie ‘Foreword’. And if you watch it closely, you’ll see Niagara Falls (at the shot about 16 seconds in)…shout out to Jaeger & Garrett for stopping by the shop while they were in town. Always good to see support for local shops. If you’re not getting hot and bothered watching this trailer then break out the K-Y. You got young bucks all with an assortment of styles coming together for a video that looks like it will melt faces. Kick back & enjoy.

 

That’s all we got for right now, stay tuned for updates on events that are coming up. Oh yeah, here’s a little edit from our friends over at schuss while we were at Mt. Bachelor.
