For the past several months Alex Olson has been tight lipped regarding his future alliance and endorsement with a board sponsor. As we remember, he abruptly dipped away from Brian Anderson’s 3D Skateboards corral before it got off the launch pad. Well, it has been recently disclosed that Alex’s past social media posts tied to the number 917-692-2706 have in fact pointed to his very own skateboard brand now fully disclosed and titled as Bianca Chandon.
Mackenzie Eisenhour caught up with Alex in this TWS interview to discuss his launch of the brand, the polar opposites of skateboarding, and much more.
In this second episode Ed discusses skating with Jason Lee, his first sponsor and magazine ad with Circle A Skateboards, the lack of street skating videos, joining Schmitt Stix for a brief stint, moving forward with The New Deal and more. Listen in.
Our friend and lifelong skateboarder Matt Musselwhite (aka Punker Matt) and his lady Lydia Doleman are featured in this short film titled “Speak for the Trees” which reveals their modern day homestead in the hills of Southern Oregon and their fervent stance and battle against irresponsible logging practices. This epic and creative couple, along with some neighbors and friends, are fighting the good fight to save their region or timberlands from widespread clear cutting. Take a break to listen in and have a closer look about preserving our lands for future generations.
Indeed, a lawful balance must be struck before we completely lose many regions of our nation’s precious forests to unregulated logging.
