Vancouver’s DIY skatepark Leeside has been in the process of a rebuilding effort over the past months and to help cover the cost of materials, a funding effort has been set up online. To date, the volunteer group is a little over halfway in reaching their funding goal of $15k. Please visit the Leeside Go Fund Me page and learn a bit of history with this important piece of skateable real estate which was coined by fallen skater Lee Matasi. Your donation big or small is appreciated and a great step towards completing this effort. Thank you skateboarding.
If there’s one thing that’s certain amongst skateboarders and skateboarding, creativity has always been a part of what we do in life. Well, leave it to veteran professional skater Chris Gentry to help design and release his new skateboarding product, The Pro Trainer. Yes, this device will help you learn those technical kickflips, heelflips and variations whether you’re a strict street assassin or a seasoned swamp trog looking to add variety to your short list of vert tricks. Indeed, if it’s raining, you’re training!
Dan Broad is a veteran skater and graphic designer from London and over the last five years he’s been researching, collecting and re-drawing hundreds of skateboard company logos from the 70s to the mid 90s. From this work, he’s designed and screen printed a series of three limited edition prints and he’s released them under his company Backpull.
There have been many amount of skateboard brands over the last 40 or so years, some large and well known, others smaller, more underground or short lived. These awesome prints don’t champion any one single company, but they commemorate as many as possible within each era. This is by no means a complete history, but more of a collection of some of Dan’s (and our) favorite logos from the 70s, 80s and mid 90s all designed within a shaped deck from each respective era.
A percentage of all Backpull profits from the sale of the prints will go to skateboard causes in the UK, such as helping fund the resurfacing of a local ramp or donating to skate related charities. Basically, whoever could do with a helping hand and is doing something positive so that people can enjoy and benefit from skateboarding.
