In case you missed it, The New York Times recently featured a skateboarding-specific article citing its mainstream growth, evolution of public acceptance and the skatepark era that has defined pieces of the modern urban landscape. Read on.
This article circulated by the LA Times digs a bit into the world of high fashion colluding with NYC’s streetwear brand Supreme. Coming soon to a skatepark or runway near you? Thankfully it’s very doubtful.
We wanted to bring your attention to a support effort for a friend and skateboarder Andy Dicker at this time. Unfortunately, he suffered a serious head injury while skating recently. Thankfully, his crew of friends have set up a skate benefit event for him in San Francisco on February 4th as well as this GoFundMe account. Please give and support whatever you can afford to help him in this situation.
Season 8 of Camp Woodward has rolled out this morning with episodes that begin as they follow three up-and-coming skaters preparing to spend two weeks at summer camp.
To kick it off, we’ve selected the one of the first episodes featuring 12 year old CJ Collins. Inadvertently, he was raised on skateboarding as his parents regularly dropped him off at the Vans Skatepark in lieu of daycare as a developing youngster. Have a seat and meet CJ, one of skateboarding’s rising talents.
