Thrasher and Wired.com recently got together to pick the most jaw-dropping photos of skateboarding stunts from 2011. I wish I could skateboard. I’m pretty good at doing ollies though.
Back in my pot-smokin’ days… One of the greatest pipes I ever owned was made from wood. His name: Mr. Scribbles. We called him Scribbs. Schwood sunglasses are also made from wood, and they’re also sick. Check out this video showcasing the making of a pair of shades from a skate deck. Dope.
Spanish designer Alex Trochut is putting an artistic spin on the old kick push skateboard. Most of the pieces in his Apparatu Collectionlook as though they were melted or at very least sat on by Kim Kardashian… The pop colors and ceramic work is reminiscent of MOMA exhibits in fine cities everywhere.
After a few previous SB releases, Nike has finally revealed Eric Koston’s first signature shoe. Koston’s signature model has a pretty simple design but it does feature Nikes signature Lunarlon insole which adds a new element to Nike’s skate line. So far only one colorway has been previewed but there will surely be many more to come. These should hit stores early 2011. Check out some more pictures after the jump.
European skate magazine, Fluff, hooked up with Nike SB to create “he dizzying highs and embarrassing lows” of 117 european Nike SB riders on 19 tours shot by 1 photographer and documented in a 600 page book. It is said to be available at all European SB dealers, but I wouldn’t know because I live in the stizzy states. Anyone Sneakhypers seen it in person? Check out the pretty dope Fluff x SB website (takes a minute to load) here.
I swear Supreme could slap their logo on anything from a pair of Double D’s to a pair of Nikes, or even a Skateboard and the end product would look pretty dope. Their latest creations are these new Leopard skate decks. The deck comes in two styles, a traditional skateboard and a cruiser model. These are available now at the-glade.
