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


Chocolate is the sister company of Girl Skateboards, founded shortly after the Girl team started to grow too big. Chocolate has been a top selling board company since it started with some of the best skateboarders in the world representing.

I remember when I first met David Gravette back when he was random flow and still wearing pads skating am contests we were running at the time. All he wanted to do was ride for Creature. He was a perfect fit. When I think of Creature, I automatically hear death metal and picture myself waking up at the skate spot in a tent with beer cans everywhere.

RIPNDIP is a clothing company started right in our backyard, next city over, Orlando, Florida. I remember years ago how their crew would show up super-deep at local Florida contests we were running. Next thing you know, the quality of their gear became top of the line and you started seeing them everywhere from The Berrics, to all over the streets of California. Congrats to our homies from the neighboring city for building an apparel brand proper and thanks for letting us carry your stuff in The Boardr Store.

Tampa native Yonnie Cruz needs to just go pro for Traffic right after this Static IV video part drops to join Ricky Oyola and the rest of the tight crew over there. UPDATE as of December 2014: Yonnie's pro! Congrats, homie!

Jessup has been making griptape since 1975. They've got it down and have been one of the most stepped on brands in skateboarding since we slithered out of the ocean and onto the sidewalks.
