Throw Back Thursday


#TBT this is one of the first pics of the popular Bamboo Penny Killer originally brought to us by the fine skateboard craftsman at ChurchillMFG the only true to size and spec maple and bamboo versions of the Plastic Penny Skateboards these boards offer all the same fun and more. These shred-able boards can really be put to the test.  We still offer this baby today and its one of our best selling boards of all time. Perfect for a campus cruiser, checking the local surf or making that munchie run to 7-11.  Jump over to the skate shop today and grab one up for you and a bud. Why not? They are affordable as all heck.  Same great quality and for a limited time they still come with Churchill USA made Red Eye 61mm Cruiser wheels.

Tis the Season

We just got a batch of the best selling 39″ Drop Through bamboo Longboards in stock.  We only managed to get 50 decks pressed up this time so make sure to grab one up before the sell out again. Call in the Jasmine, the NS Drop through or whatever you want but its the same great quality longboard that you have grown to know and love. This deck is 6 layers of Canadian Hard Rock Maple sandwiched between 2 beautiful Bamboo Venneers and cold pressed to ensure strength and durability.  Also did you know that bamboo is one of the fastets growing plants in the world and some of them can grow up to 35″ in 24hr period.  Maple trees can take 10+ years to grow only to 15-20 feet. That’s a long time to wait for a skateboard!


Carbon Street Wood

The fine folks over at ChurchillMFG, ya you know, the ones that make the best skateboards in the world have just dumped a batch of the ever popular Carbon Fiber Topped Street decks off for us to sell. These skateboards have so much POP it should be illegal.  Deck Sizes are limited right now but we have more sizes dropping next week or so.  As always if you dont see what you want hit us up. We always have a few things lurking around the shop.

Creativity in Skateboarding

So the internet as you know is full of all kinds of crazy stuff. You can go on the google to find something and spend hours looking at totally unrelated items. I like to look for random skateboarding stuff and there is no shortage of that too. So for today’s random picture I have this super cool light that was made from a skateboard. I think I may try this one in the kiddos bedroom.


 Really the possibility for skateboards in the home are unlimited. Just takes a bit of creativity I guess.


Here is Steve Meketa Skogging across the finish line at yesterdays Adrenalina skateboard marathon. Finishing in 2 hours and 45 min we never claim skogging is faster but certainly Steve could have gone longer. Actually he did another 60 miles after the race. Maybe there is a world record in there somewhere. I will call guinness world records and see about setting up a 24 hr skate. Are you in STEVE?
