We need to wait a few days for the recap on this one. Jon wins a personal red carpet laid out by Porpe for The Boardr Am Finals at X Games Austin. Porpe will be taking care of his flight, hotel, local travel, chow downs, and might even give him a foot massage. Yep, Jon gets all expenses paid for destroying it today at Stoner Skate Plaza. Check out full results below:
After we landed in LA and got settled, we rolled over to the skatepark down the street to find one of the ones from the recent era where cities were building the worst concrete piles that random contractor companies could spit out. This one is pretty insane. It still ended up being a fun time, though.
Check the full list of skaters and live results for the Qualifiers. The monitor on the side of the #BoardrBus will also have live updates as scores come in and Jams get updated.
The schedule at every stop for The Boardr Am is the same. Just so you know, we run things on time, especially here in LA at Stoner where everything must be done by 5pm on Saturday.

The fashion companion to the recent comebacks of no comply's and ollie impossibles is no doubt camo these days. We got enough camo gear to deck you out for skateboard war here in The Boardr Store. Take a look at this arsenal!
Just in case there's a rope swing near the skate spot, we got you these Matix JJ Boardshorts to splash into the river to cool off. I know model Bob here is probably on a rope swing every weekend with his love of the backwoods. Has anyone ever put a deck on the bottom of a rope swing? That seems like it would be pretty fun comparable to trampoline skateboarding.Buy Now: $55.00
Official is a recent addition to The Boardr Store and of course one hat they're throwing into the ring is the camo Unstructured Pequenos Strap Back. I don't know if this one would pair up with those boardshorts on the rope swing, though.Buy Now: $32.00
Here's your lid for the rope swing and boardshorts. The Spitfire Trademark Bucket Hat will top off those tweaked barefoot rope swing grabs and land you the cover of Ropeboarding Magazine.Buy Now: $34.00

Like the color black, the trucker hat is here to stay in skateboarding. Real's Deeds Trucker Hat in camo gives nod to the classic and new, kind of like when people do no complys down stairs and rails. Model Bob probably has two of these.Buy Now: $24.00
If you're going down to the ground with camo, Emerica's Wino designed by Atiba is a good start. The camo skateboard war will be won by your feet.Buy Now: $50.00
If you're all in on camo and on the front lines of the skateboard war, you need full leg leafy brush concealment.

These HUF Fulton Chino's deserve an appearance in your next clip.Buy Now: $65.00
When you're in camo head to toe, you can't have those ankles giving you away. These Stance Prairie Dogs keep you camo to the core for the skateboard war.Buy Now: $12.00

Email us at Help@TheBoardr.com with your camo questions.Buy Now: $65.00
Austin England, long time friend of The Boardr and one of the most recognizable illustrators you'll find out there these days recently went nuts. Not in the sense you'd think your average artist goes nuts. Nope, he's totally sane and started a hardware company that we're hyped to be backing: Sea Monster Hardware. You might also recognize Austin's work in the category illustrations he did for The Boardr Store. Congrats on the new venture, Austin!
HiDefJoe and Body put together an extended version of Shopping with The Body that includes a session at John Montesi's house in a personal delivery of wholesale Shaqueefa goods from The Boardr to Westside Skate Shop. Did you know we're a distributor, too? Yep, Shaqueefa is our first brand after I made some modifications to our custom POS to handle and fullfill wholesale orders. If you'd like to get Shaqueefa in your store like Westside did, email me to get a wholesale account set up - Rob@TheBoardr.com. Check out all our Shaqueefa gear here.
Did you see our collection of all black shoes and all white shoes? In between those two extremes is quite a variety. In this collection, we're leaning towards the flamboyant. Loud and proud is not for everyone and it takes a special character to pull it off right, but those that do are some of the most entertaining personalities in skateboarding. We pulled together some of our favorite wacky items from The Boardr Store so you can kickstart your standout in skateboarding. All black shoes certainly aren't going to do it.
First up, your skateboard itself. 8.25" 52mm wheels with Indy's on a popsicle stick? Cookie. Cutter. Come rolling through with this Penny tie dye plastic plank straight from the 70's with four different color wheels. After you kick off your all black boring shoes into the trash bin, run it barefoot to complete the look. If you rip, you still got a good 360 flip on this thing. Maybe you'll bring back the gorilla grip, too.Buy Now: $130.00
Anything less than 100% flamboyant generally isn't going to work. You have to go in head to toe or you're just going to look off balance. The bucket hat I think might be one of the exceptions to that rule. This RIPNDIP lid, however, is not a bucket. It's a Bell Hat with the print straight from the shuffleboard court of a 55+ mobile home park in Florida. Complete the flamboyant look or have it be just the single piece you use with your standard all black Tampa kit.Buy Now: $40.00
Double tie dye? Yes, go all in on hippy and run this Happy Hour Mucho Relaxo shirt with that Penny you're rolling and make sure to set the statement that you're on this tie die thing not because you haven't done laundry, but because it's a lifestyle to you. Skate or tie dye.Buy Now: $24.00
CREAM = Cats Rule Everything Around Me. Can you believe cats ended up inheriting the internet? Cat videos and memes are responsible for entire industries forming as the internet matured over the last 10 years and probably made more people millionares than oil. We have a RIPNDIP cat pillow. If you're flamboyant in public, you need to keep it real at home, too. This is your throw pillow.Buy Now: $40.00
Does Herman really wear these or does he have a distant cousin from Jersey? That is one amazing combo of gum sole and flamboyant colors right there. Red and turquoise together are usually seen only on cartoon characters or a super hero. When people gear check your flaymboyance from head to toe, these Herman G6's will complete their eye's journey down your wacky pant leg.Buy Now: $65.00
Speaking of wacky pant leg, we got Primitive's Sweat Joggers as worn by The Boardr Store chief, Bob Freeman. Floral grew onto the scene in skateboarding last year and continues into the woods, or something, with this print that could be your aunt's Saturday night BINGO kit. Put down a line in your next video part in these and you'll be stacking YouTube comments and shares like a cat video.Buy Now: $68.00
When your bottom half is that far out, no top half will do, not even tie dye, unless it equally matches those bottoms. Bob knows this and steps out with the complete Primitive kit to include the top. This Primitive Crew Neck Sweatshirt goes right over your tie dye.Buy Now: $68.00
If you want to go flamboyant to the core, you need to get all the way down to the last detail, that being your socks. Socks are the new way to dress up these days, so if you're going wacky, you need to step it up, like maybe some pink with purple stripes and and a Toy Machine eye.Buy Now: $8.00
I think The Busenitz Signature shoe is one of the best skate shoes out there. You still need to function while you're flamboying about town. How about a turquoiseish blue colorway in Dennis' shoe? It's called Solar Blue.Buy Now: $75.00
Did you see that recent New Balance video Russel Haughton made? That was some amazing cinema work. Anyway, New Balance is killing it with the team, their media, and the shoes themselves, as they're some of the most comfortable skate shoes out. This colorway in the Brighton will have you far out of your psychological comfort zone. That is, until you've completed your crossover to skateboard flamboyance. Thanks for browsing some of our louder gear in The Boardr Store. His us up with any questions at Help@TheBoardr.com. Change your font to pink Comic Sans before emailing us.Buy Now: $75.00
Black shoes have always been the most popular in skateboarding. Nothing is 'the new black' except black. Now, black from ankle to ground is one step further, as most black shoes have a white or gum sole. I must admit, I've never gone black to the ground. Maybe it's because it reminds me of my days waiting tables? I don't know, but looking through this list of six supermassive black holes you can put on your feet and shred in has me thinking I might just go for my first pair of black rubber touching black grip.
How many different companies have made a classic high top shoe like this? Every single one. This one is special, though. HUF and Thrasher meet here and you have an all black OG as a cuss word rendition of style that's been in skateboarding since the wheel itself. Black in the sky, black on the ground, black in your heart with that Thrasher Skate Goat logo.Buy Now: $89.00
An adidas Busenitz Vulc with black on black on black on black on black??? They even named the colorway black, TWICE. I think you got a good multitasker shoe here. After you get arrested for shredding the courthouse, you can then then go to actual court and rep these like dress shoes. What judge wouldn't be impressed and set you free?Buy Now: $65.00
Most of our Wu Tang stuff sold quick and is out of stock, but there are still a few sizes left in HUF's HR-1. How 90's is this blackness with that airbag? The Jump Off with that cushion means protect ya heel. Can you pull off skating in these? On our OG red curb at The Boardr you can.Buy Now: $138.00
If you're not 100% committed to going black from ankle to ground, how about a hint of gum like a thin ray of sunshine making into your cell of dark solitary confinement? It's black on black on black on black on...gum sole!Buy Now: $75.00
Shouldn't the Boss be in black on black on black? Yep, after you kill that stairset and gap like Andrew, go straight to its funeral in your all black Reynolds Lows and pay your respects to the skate spot before you bury it. Are you ready for black soles on your black grip after looking through all this black? I think I might be. Email us at Help@TheBoardr.com with any questions.Buy Now: $80.00
You know we love a good skateboard skit here at The Boardr. Silas delivers on this one with event Dennis Busenitz getting the Oscar for his supporting role as a desk jockey. Yes! And Snoop? adidas Skate Copa in Portland on April 25th will be at Silas' "office" he rips in this video. See you, your shop crew, and Silas there real soon.
