THANK YOU EVERYBUDDAY

Dear Friends, It’s 2015 now, which means it’s finally the year we get Hoverboards (I’m talking about the the real one and not these crappy knockoffs.) There’s a lot coming up but before we get ahead of ourselves, I wanted to take a step back and thank everyone for the year that was 2014. I won’t lie, 2014 was a big one for us and we got to do things that we didn’t think were possible before: Tripping balls at Street League, interviewing Gino Iannucci about Fucking Awesome, Gay Talk…

WE GOT A FACELIFT…

Hello Digital Friends! You may have realized that things look a bit different around here. It may be a bit brighter, a bit more techy, a bit more flashy, but it’s still the same old us. So why the redesign? It’s pretty simple: because everyone is on their phones all day!! And if you ever checked our site on mobile or tablet before, you know it looked pretty bootleg. So we got our friend Zach Doe to cook something up with mobile and tablet in mind. You won’t have to…

LET’S GET FORREST EDWARDS TO STREET LEAGUE

If you are like us, you know that Forrest Edwards is the best thing to happen to skateboarding in a while. Infamous for his stint on SLAP’s 2010 One In a Million reality show contest, for dropping “not that gay” hammers while “not really trying,” and for his legendary answers on the Weekend Buzz show, he was recently invited to Street League to win the big bucks. Problem is, that he’s a broke-ass dude whose flow sponsors won’t pony up enough dough to fly him to the Pro Open event…

JENKEM “FISTS” RIPOFF SHIRT IS OUT NOW!

Hello friends! I know a lot of you have been asking for shirts and other assorted Jenky products, and to be honest, for a while we weren’t going to do anything. Not because we don’t like you, just because shirts and product is actually kind of a pain in the ass – you gotta make (or ripoff) the design, buy the shirts, silkscreen it, “market it”, pack up the shirts, write notes to everyone and hope nothing in the process gets fucked up. Unless you are doing huge orders (which…

MEET THE TOM PENNY LOOKALIKE FINALISTS

Last week we asked you all to put on your best floppy beanie, take a handful of shrooms, and be the best Tom Penny you could possibly be, and the submissions were nothing short of surprising. For such an unique skater, there were a surprising amount of good resemblances to choose from for the First Annual Tom Penny Lookalike Contest. Here’s a few of them culled from Instagram and our email inbox for you to vote on. And remember, if you’re in the Philadelphia area on December 11, stop by…

THE JENKEM LAKAI SHOE HAS SHIPPED

We’ve been getting a bunch of e-mails and sloppy texts recently asking where the Lakai and Jenkem shoes were for sale, so we figured we’d make one last announcement plugging the shops and websites who have been stocking it / backing us and call it a day. As always, please check out and support your local skateshop first, and if you were having your doubts about the shoe, check out the other angles below or revisit our up close and personal unboxing video (NSFW) a few weeks back of skateboarding’s…
