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


Years ago I spent 24 hours in Simi Valley hanging with Mike Mo, slept on his couch, and partied at his local Simi Valley nightlife spot. He was filming for Pretty Sweet and just getting started with Glassy where one of the rooms in his house was filled with inventory. Glassy grew pretty quickly after that and now they're sitting on the face of a lot of your favorite pros, including Kenny Anderson, Biebel, Jaws, Marc Johnson, Sean Malto, Daewon, and more. They've got high end glass like the Marc Johnsons and more budget friendly sunhating shields like the Halfy and Derics. Thanks for having Glassy in The Boardr Store, Mike Mo.

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.

Stereo was started in 1992 by Chris Pastras aka Dune and Jason Lee in the the golden era of skateboarding every verteran loves, the early 90's. We've known Chris since then and have spent most of our recent years working with him at various am and pro contests. We're proud to represent Stereo in The Boardr Store as we've been both friends and fans of Jason and Chris since we started skateboarding.

Penny is the OG in cruiser boards and with more and more people skateboarding for transportation, they're on top of the cruiser world right now. We ride these to lunch!

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.
