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


Mike V has been one of the hardest working dudes in skateboarding since he started skateboarding. I remember as a kid seeing him in the early Powell days at Cheap Skates in PA doing these half cab method airs to fakie on the mini-ramp and just having to pick my jaw up off the ground. Then there was the recent year he came back to Tampa and stole the show where it ended in the crowd carrying him around at the awards. Elephant Brand is his new project that includes Jason Adams and two close friends of The Boardr, Kyle Berard and Neal Hendrix. Mike's also the new frontman in Black Flag. It's all good all around with Elephant and Mike V's crew. We're hyped to have his gear in at The Boardr Store.

Bones is the wheels and accessories arm of parent company Powell Peralta, also associated with Bones Bearings. These brands have been around making top quality skateboarding stuff for longer than all of us have been skating here at The Boardr.

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.

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.
