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


Brian Anderson recently started 3D Skateboards with Austyn Gillette. Skateboarding's entrepreneurial spirit lives on. Thanks for having 3D in The Boardr Store, Brian!

Thanks Paul Rodriguez for having Primitive in The Boardr Store. Good luck on the new venture. It's always nice to see skateboarders starting their own thing, from small time local stuff to big time things like Paul's projects.

Real was started in skateboarding's golden era, at a time when many pros from the big skateboard companies were flying the coop to start their own deals. Jim Thiebaud and Tommy Gurrero kicked it off after leaving the Bones Brigade and Real has been legit 'since day one', specifically, since day 1991. We're hyped to have Real in The Boardr Store.

Mark Gonzales started Krooked Skateboards inside the Deluxe family and has done most of the amazing graphics work for the company since. Mark also recently signed on with Excel Management, The Boardr's sister company that helps pros manage their careers. It's pretty amazing being the biggest fans of Mark Gonazles all our lives and now getting to work with him. Now it comes full circle where we're carrying his company in The Boardr Store.

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.
