In the early days of skateboarding t-shirt design, it was common for t-shirt graphics to be on the back, with a small hit on the front pocket space. As the golden era of skateboarding began in the early 90's, literally every single t-shirt made had the graphic on the front. These days, the graphic on the back is starting to make a comeback, pun and all.
Shorts are like the nickname of pants. Some people can run a good nickname and it's not weird at all. Other people you try to stick a nickname to and it just doesn't feel right. Take your approach to wearing shorts while skating with this caution. I still never wear shorts while skating, but for the chill out tent, shorts are mandatory. That's why we got these.
Sure, everyone says 'Support Skater Owned,' but one category we're backing hard is current and former pros that start their own companies. From Brian Anderson starting 3D to Ragdoll starting Hurt Life, keep backing these dudes until the wheels come off.
Isn't it funny how the mainstream always has a beanie in mind when they think of the classic skateboarder stereotype? The beanie is here to stay in skateboarding as we've been running them since the dawn on skateboard time. These days, they're getting a little crazy with pom poms and extra large graphics, too.
Do you remember when fitted hats and six panels got knocked off everyone's heads by the big five panel trend a few years ago? I think it was the early days of Odd Future and Tyler that really helped kick off the change in domepiece attire. These days, five panel hats still run strong.
Cruiser boards usually vary in shape from traditional street boards and can vary widely in width, but generally are shorter than about 34 inches. Cruiser completes come with softer wheels, too. Softer wheels are an easier ride. Cruiser boards are generally not for doing tricks. They're transportation like longboards, but don't have the uncool factor that longboards got stuck with from the street skaters.
