The age of print media is definitely waning. Today publishing corp GrindMedia has announced that Skateboarder Magazine will discontinue both its print and digital platform publishing effective October 15, 2013 following the release of its third digital edition this week. This third digital edition and companion limited edition print version, which will be its final edition.
“Unfortunately market conditions have forced us to have to make the difficult decision to cease publication of Skateboarder,” said Norb Garrett, SVP Group Publisher of GrindMedia. “It’s especially disappointing given the strong interest and initial success we’ve had with the new digitally focused editions; our Skateboarder team has worked incredibly hard producing a cutting-edge product that has been successful at reaching a larger audience online. We will take all of the learnings from Skateboarder’s efforts and apply them to TransWorld Skateboarding and our other brands as the digital model has demonstrated real promise.”
Skateboarder’s editorial staff and publisher will remain on through October to support the release and distribution of the final issue and continue to support the Web site.
Krooked’s new fall ’13 drop features all new Skate or Pie zingers, Krooked krayons for coloring your favorite curb, new Gonz Skrills to Pay Billz, Anderson’s Amurika, Drehobl’s kreepy piece, the all new Padre Pro series and more.
Unfortunately, this weekend’s Ultra Bowl 5 got shut down a bit early due to soggy skies dripping down at the end of the Semi-Final rounds. And after waiting sixty minutes through the rain delay, it was decided to go with the scores on the board and the results were announced. It’s too bad the guys in the last Semi-Finals heat still had over 4 minutes remaining on the clock when Mother Nature began weeping from above. Oh well, there’s still a big party going on in Malmö right about now!
Congrats to all of those that either skated or attended and helped to put on this exceptional skate event!
