Earlier this week, Fred Water proudly welcomed the first four skateboarders to the brand: Ranging from up-and-coming AM to pro to legend status – Chris Joslin, Jaws, Jamie Thomas and Tony Hawk – these four influential skateboarders are committed to Fred’s mission of drinking more water more often. Water is essential and Fred’s pocket-friendly water flasks make it easier to carry.
Jamie was on King of the Road with Zero three times and they won it three times. It takes a KOTR legend to comment properly on Thrasher’s February issue.
Jim Hodgson has unearthed some more vintage footage featuring Bobby Puleo, German Nieves, Nikhil Thayer, Andy Bautista and a host of familiar faces. Tune in.
Has social media hurt or helped skateboarding? In Chapter Two of ‘Pushing Forward,’ a skate documentary from Red Bull, they take a look at the impact of social media on pro skateboarders and how the modern pro utilizes social media to manage their own brand.
To help answer this somewhat obvious, but complex question, they looked at the different ends of the spectrum. Joey Brezinski is quite active on social, as is Alex Midler, who at the age of 16 was born into the social media era and doesn’t know anything different. And then there’s Wes Kremer, who has a different approach entirely to the medium. Veteran pros Jamie Thomas, Mike Vallely, and Steve Berra weigh in on the subject with some strong opinions that provide interesting context to how the profession has changed.
Fred Water has taken its crusade against sugar to another level by revealing its innovative stainless steel Fred Water Flask that makes water easy to carry in a pocket. The new Fred Water Flask Kickstarter video features Flight of the Conchords’ Murray Hewitt (Rhys Darby), Tony Hawk, Jaws, Jamie Thomas, Chris Joslin and a cast of comedy actors taking viewers through a funny storyline about the invention of the pocket-friendly water flask.
