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


Santa Cruz and their parent company NHS recently celebrated their 40th Anniversary of making top quality skateboards. 40???!! Wow, skateboarding isn't even that much older than that. They've seen wheels, boards, and skateboard fashion trends go from big to tall to small to it all. Their recent collaboration with Star Wars got everyone hyped. Congrats on 40 years, NHS and thanks for being down to have Santa Cruz stuff in The Boardr Store.

Chet Childress, Deer Man of Dark Woods, and Daniel Shimizu are on the crew at Heroin Skateboards. Rolilng with a pack like that, you don't even need drugs.

Anytime you get upset at something and find skateboarding getting too serious, stop and tell yourself to Enjoi. Loosen up, maybe even get a Louie Barletta bowl cut, then stop an gather your thoughts. Do you see Jimmy Carlin in his underwear? Good, your thoughts are pure. Skateboarding is still real to you. This is why The Boardr loves Enjoi.

From Bones Reds on up to Bones Swiss Ceramics, they're known for being some of the best things you can wrap your wheels around in skateboarding. Bones Bearings has been a top seller and performer for decades.

We've been working with Volcom on events in skateboarding for as long as we've been working in skateboarding, which is approaching two decades. Volcom has backed all things skateboarding on all levels since they became the first company in the early 90's to combine all the boarding we're fans of: on the streets, on the water, and on the snow. Thanks Volcom for being in The Boardr Store and continuing to back skateboarding with fun events, a ripping team, and a damn good music label as icing on the cake.
