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.
Some of the earliest skateboarders are getting a little old, us included, and we love our throwback old school stuff. Check the 'Reissue Boards' category for decks. In this group, we have all the other throwback stuff like classic graphics and other skate stuff that will make you feel like a kid again despite what your knees are telling you.
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.
Those lowly nuts and bolts, aka Hardware, have had quite a decorated history in skateboarding. Some of the biggest companies in the industry started out as hardware and now have their owners flying to the skateboard shindig in private jets.
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.
Denim in skateboarding isn't as popular as it used to be, but give it some time and we'll see it come back fierce like most other trends. We still stock a decent selection of top quality denim for those sticking to the classic.
The first and second generation of skateboarders all have kids now that skate. The regular 8 inch wide boards aren't going to do it for those tykes. Minis are smaller decks and completes more appropriate for the younger rollers.
