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


We're all Foundation for life here at The Boardr, but Porpe has it inked to show dedication. Foundation has been around as long as we've been skateboarding and we're proud to be backing them from their older pros like Corey Duffel to newer ones like Sierra Fellers.

Girl Skateboards started in 1993, at the height of a period in skateboarding when the industry was changing hands into 'skater owned' companies. Girl started with Mike Carroll and several other top pros at the time who remain top pros still to this day. Girl and their sister company, Chocolate, have produced some of skateboarding's most memorable videos over the last 20 years.

Skateboarder and artist Russ Pope has been getting it done on both fronts for 25+ years. His board brand, Transportation Unit, of course has some amazing graphics of Russ' work, but combine that with fun shapes, and it's something we're all hyped on here at The Boardr Store. Thanks for having TU in our store, Russ!

It's been 25 years since Mike Vallely's Barnyard board on World Industries was released. I was lucky enough to be skating at the time. It was the first board that had a full size nose nearly as big as the tail and the one that blazed the trail to the modern board shape of the 90's that still is the staple 20 years later today. Mike's graphics now and even back then are some of the most memorable in skateboarding's history. Now his new brand, Street Plant, celebrates that history with selected pieces from the start of the golden age of skateboarding. We could not be more proud to carry this in The Boardr Store.

Cycle Zombies is a family that was born and raised in Orange County, CA. It was never founded, it just happened. Surfing, skateboarding, building and riding motorcycles is a lifestyle that they live and breath everyday. They dig up old bikes and bring them back to life with a new look, not to re-invent the wheel, but only to make them turn again.
