HiDefJoe caught up with Clint Walker while we were recently in Las Vegas for a new episode of On The Boardr with Clint. Who ignored Clint's sponsor me tape? Why can't Clint get a shoe sponsor? Who is Jock and why does Clint hate him? He started filming for his X Games Real Street part just four months ago and discusses all that and more. It's a nice view into Clint's personality, too. Hey sketchy skateboard industry, let's get some shoes on this dude!

Jason Chapman invited us up to Baltimore to check out his skate park and scene that he's been part of since 1994 when Charm City Skatepark started. The park's second home in that time is now in an old paintball warehouse. It's huge, has a vert ramp, and more wood than a forest. Today, Jason ran his Maryland Am Contest that we helped run with The Boardr Live, our scoring app that we run our events with. Baltimore is an interesting city with some good skateboarding. We should make it part of our long term plans. More on that later. As usual, my story is in the photos below.

Brands You Should Back


When our long time friend Nick Matlin wanted to start a wheel company in 2010 with a fresh and positive vibe, Paradise Wheels was started. He runs the company with the help of Westside Skate Shop's John Montesi who handles the paper pushing while Nick runs with the team and inventory duties out in San Francisco. Paradise Wheels wheels represents the true nature and spirit of DIY in skateboarding. We don't just build our own spots, we build our own companies, too. Welcome Paradise Wheels to The Boardr store.

Stance made socks the new way to dress up. I hope you're not still wearing the tightie whities of footwear lining.

Flip's first video, Sorry, dropped in 2002 and dropped our jaws with parts from Bastien, Arto, Tom Penny, that opener from Mark, and more. On through Really Sorry, Extremely Sorry and through today, the team has changed a bit but remains a crew of some of the most ripping pros and ams in skateboarding. David Gonzalez was recently Thrasher's Skater of the Year and new pros Curren Caples and Louie Lopez are killing it, too. We've watched them all grow up at all these am contests we've done over the years. Thanks Flip for backing everything we've done in skateboarding. It's a pleasure to return the favor by stocking Flip boards in The Boardr Store.

Stitched up right here on American soil in Los Angeles, we are excited about Kennedy Denim's products now in stock in The Boardr Store.

Started back in the Z-Boys days in 1976, the first generation of their team included Jay Adams (RIP), Tony Alva, Dave Hackett, and Jim Muir. Kids who know their skateboard history will recognize those names along with all of the dudes in the 50 and Up Division in the Grind for Life Series that Z-Flex backs with us. If you're going to push a cruiser or vintage board, you're going OG with Z-Flex.
