Let me just start off by saying that this dude is 12 years old! That’s crazy to me. Professional skateboarders have been trying for years to pull this off, and here comes this new young hot-shot, and boom! 1080 degrees.
To be honest, I think I would use this more for decoration than actual skating. It looks pretty dope, but something about an aluminum skateboard doesn’t sound right to me. If you’re one that just likes to cruise, and need something that’s easily transported, this is for you.
Although I find things like this pretty cool, it kind of seems to take all the fun out of skateboarding. This is the ZBoard electric skateboard that senses your weight, and moves forward or stops depending on which sensor your standing on. I like the idea, but I can’t say that I agree with this.
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.
