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


One of skateboarding's best selling and widely known brands since day one is Independent Trucks. People go their whole skateboarding lives riding nothing but Indy's. Their team includes some of the best skateboarders in history.

DC was started in skateboarding's golden era, the early 90's. I've heard two stories on what the initials stand for. At the time, Droors Clothing, associated with Danny Way and Colin McKay, was super hot. They started a shoe company and called it DC, for Droors Clothing. Or was it for Danny and Colin? I don't know, but when I see Danny Way at events we do, I'm always too intimidated to ask him. It's been amazing to watch DC's roots start over 20 years ago in skateboarding through what it is today, still supporting skateboarding first with one of the best teams out there including Nyjah Huston, Evan Smith, Felipe Gustavo, Mike Mo Capaldi, Wes Kremer, Matt Miller, and more. Our young friends skate for them and our old friends work for them, and they work with us doing some great skateboarding events around the world. We're proud to have DC as the first shoe brand in The Boardr Store!

Pennswood Manufacturing located in Oil City, Pennsylvania is owned and run by skateboarders using the finest Canadian and American Maple wood to make all Scumco and Sons boards. You'll find skateboarders owning and running even the print shop that does their shirts. It's amazing to see a brand keeping the full entrepreneurial spirit of skateboarding alive as many of us skating for more than 20+ years have seen skateboarding evolve like that. Scumco's team currently includes Brian Downey, Stan Karbine, Drew Windon, Dan Peindl, Zach Funk, Zach Dykes, and Josh Narvaez. We're hyped to have them in The Boardr Store now!

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!

Lowcard started 10 years ago with a ream of office paper and a sketchy photocopier. Their first issue made it into Thrasher's Zine thing questioning whether a second issue would print. A decade later they're still documenting skateboarding raw like that, sans photocopier, but with the same look and feel that started it all. Flip through their 10 year anniversary issue that they returned to Kinko's to print in the original photocopier style. Stay in your roots like that. Thanks for being down for being in The Boardr Store, Lowcard.
