WKND Skateboards

Putting the pretty young faces of some our generation’s first adolescent Hollywood crushes on the bottom of our favorite toy is kind of a heist. How are we supposed to resist these boards?

The WKND Babes Decks are a barrage of rooted pubescent desires mixed with perfect board shapes.

Fuck everything. Whoa! Now before you get all defensive, hear me out. Skateboarding is about freedom. It’s about the feeling of independence and creativity that is born from self sufficiency and determination. It’s about carving your own path, doing things your own way. Skateboarding revolves around being yourself and being amped on your accomplishments while continually one-upping yesterday’s you. It’s about letting go of everything else to focus your intention into single moments of pure stoke—over and over again. One trick at a time. One high five at a time. If other people get stoked too, hell yeah we share the love. If they don’t, it’s of no consequence. Cool is not a factor. You felt it, you did it, you dig it. That’s all that matters. That’s freedom. Let go of the rest. Fuck everything. Lurk Hard until you land that shit, fool!

Do You Lurk Hard Enough?

Okay, rant’s over. Lurk Hard is now available at Skate Warehouse! This brand is new to our shelves but was actually founded in 2008 by a fellow named Geno Failla. Hailing from the greater Sacramento area—home of such hard lurkers as John Cardiel, Matt Rodriguez, Brandon Biebel, Omar Salazar, Stephan Janoski and others—Lurk Hard actually had kind of a soft beginning. It was started as a school project for Failla’s ex-girlfriend—a fashion brand for her design class that quickly took on a life of it’s own. A few stickers and t-shirts quickly became a full line of soft goods and the Lurk Hard website. Failla put together a team of Sacramento area rippers and started filming with the talented Jack Mansfield. They’ve since released two full vids (19 Years Young & Summer Boys), piles of online clips and several rad collaborative projects. They’re carried in skate shops around the world and continue to lurk harder every day.

Lurk Hard offers an innovative style solution for your everyday lurker by offering affordable, quality clothing product that skateboarders can connect with to compliment and enhance the lurker lifestyle.

RVCA Julian Davidson x Kelsey Brookes Thumb

The Artist Network Program at RVCA never ceases to amaze. It seems like every new RVCA project features another brilliant artist I had somehow previously overlooked. I’ll see the new RVCA goods, dig them and then look up the artist. Suddenly I’ve lost two hours cascading into Google searches and double-clicking Instagram photos of their work with my mind blown. This latest capsule is no exception. Introducing the Julian Davidson x Kelsey Brookes Collection from RVCA, now available at Skate Warehouse!

RVCA x Julian Davidson x Kelsey Brookes

RVCA Julian Davidson x Kelsey Brookes Collection

Ain’t gonna lie, I saw the name Kelsey Brookes and thought, “Cool, I wonder what she does.” Apologies, Mr. Brookes. Obviously I had never enjoyed this artist’s work before. I googled the dude and yup, you guessed it, descended into image search result madness. Holy shit! Kelsey Brookes is a former high-level biochemist who forsook his scientific career in favor of painting and drawing. Like, really painting and drawing. His artwork speaks to deep-seated neurophysiological motifs that can only be expressed through color and form. Words just don’t do this stuff justice—and here I am trying to use them like a fool. Go see for yourself on KelseyBrookes.com.

In the last year, I’ve been working on a series of paintings that are inspired by my previous scientific career. It’s kind of like molding my previous scientific career with my current art practice. So, I’m taking molecules, all different types of molecules, all psychoactive and painting them, painting their molecular structure using this kind of meditative wave pattern that I’ve created.”

- Kelsey Brookes

When Kenny Anderson calls you one of his favorite skaters, you’ve pretty much made it to the top. Julian Davidson a professional skateboarder’s professional skateboarder. The versatility and determination that shines through in his skateboarding is matched only by his approach to life in the same way. He’s calm, respectful and always brings a positive ring to the sesh. He’s got a résumé of parts and interviews to rival the best of ‘em. Element couldn’t have chosen a better adage than, “actions speak louder than words” when they turned him pro in 2013, printing it on his first posters and ads. It’s true and Julian Davidson’s action dial goes all the way to eleven.

RVCA Julian Davidson x Kelsey Brookes Pants

RVCA Julian Chino Pants – Coalmine & Dark Khaki

The Julian Davidson x Kelsey Brookes Collection from RVCA perfectly represents Julian’s character. Understated yet powerful and rooted in a conscious, organic style. There are two pairs of Davidson Signature regular fit chino pants (available in Dark Khaki and Coalmine) and a two-tone tie dye crewneck pocket tee (available in Blue Thunder). The pants feature subtle hits of Brookes’ artwork at the pockets and inner tags. The crewneck features Brookes’ designs on the inner tags. There will be two woven shirts, one long sleeve and one short, arriving early January as well. Stay tuned for more info!

Pick up your piece of the RVCA Julian Collection and represent amazing people making amazing things happen in the world. Julian Davidson on a skateboard. Kelsey Brookes on a canvas. RVCA on premium apparel and yet another brilliant collab capsule. Subscribe to the Go Skate Blog for more cool new stuff and until next time—go skate!

Nike SB Dunk High Salt Stains Thumb

If you’ve ever tried to keep a pair of shoes alive in cold climates, you’ll appreciate the clever aesthetic of the new Nike SB “Salt Stains” Dunk High. Inspired by the curse of salt stained sneakers in snowy terrain, this unique colorway is the debut design from skater-turned-Nike-shoe-designer, Anthony Hart. The concept Hart created flips what is typically thought to be a problem into an attractive upper that grows more unique with every skate sesh. This crunchy SB was made with skateboarding squarely in mind and arrives just in time for the Winter holidays.

Anthony Hart x Nike SB “Salt Stains”

Walking through New York city, it snows and messes up the streets. It’s a kind of an interesting film that grows over the city, and you walk through it and it gets all over your shoes… If you get stains on your shoe it’s not going to be consistent, and that’s how we’re telling the story. When you open the shoebox from left to right, both shoes are completely different. They printed it on a big roll, and every pattern is stamped out in a different spot.”

Anthony Hart

Nike SB Salt Stains Dunk High

The all suede paneling of the Nike SB “Salt Stains” Dunk High carries a distressed print that makes them look as if they were in the midst of a harsh winter. This printing keeps every shoe unique—no two pairs are exactly the same—and the material fans away as you skate in them. After several sessions the shoe will look as if it has the dopest salt stains you’ve ever seen. A brilliant concept and a great looking Dunk.

Nike SB Salt Stains Dunk High

Hart also incorporated his own sneakerhead influences into the design. The Nike SB “Salt Stains” Dunk High has a distinctly Jordan vibe with the translucent, Space Jam style outsole. The lining of the shoe is the same lining in the renowned Air Jordan 10 “Chicago” shoe from 2012. Hart managed to strike a balance between skateboarding, sneakerhead culture and the environs of his hometown, Minneapolis, all wrapped up into one crispy SB.

Nike SB Salt Stains Dunk High

Nike SB “Salt Stains” Dunk High. All suede upper. Unique “Salt Stains” roll-on print. Mesh tongue. Reinforced toe and ollie areas. Lightly padded tongue and collar. Zoom Air insoles. Nike SB detailing throughout. Official colorway: Black/Gym Red/Black.
Style code: 313171-024.

The deafening roar of requests for eS Skateboarding to re-release the original 1995 Accel shoe can finally be hushed! eS has given in to our demands and is setting the hostage free in four timeless colorways. We have three of those colorways available now—the Black, the Brown/Gum and the Navy/Gum—with the much desired White/Gum being released in February 2015. Forget bidwars on eBay, the eS Accel OG Shoe has returned!

The eS Accel OG Is Back

Keep in mind, eS Skateboarding’s most popular shoe of all time was born over 18 years ago. It’s had almost two decades of legendary status. A lot has changed and evolved in terms of shoe technology, so it would be nigh impossible (and perhaps undesirable?) to produce a carbon copy of the original. You should think of the 2014 eS Accel OG as a new and improved version of that timeless classic. It looks almost identical, it skates just as good and it will last longer than its 90’s predecessor. A nearly perfect shoe brought closer to perfection? We’re backing it.

es Accel OG Shoes

These improvements include a slightly narrower but longer toe and tougher internal material for the toe box. They fit just a little tighter than you might remember, we recommend ordering a half size up. The uber-padded tongue and collar native to shoes of that ancient era had to be scaled back just a little bit. The 2014 es Accel OG has a mildly tapered tongue and collar, which makes it just really puffy, instead of extremely puffy. The changes are definitely improvements and we couldn’t be happier with the rebirth of the Accel… and in the classic Penny all brown colorway? Cha-ching!

Clean, simple, functional and renowned for it’s skate ability, the eS Accel OG features a low top cupsole design with an all-suede upper. Triple stitch paneling on the toe cap and a big ollie protection area keep it durable up front. The EVA Midsole and STI Foam Lite level 1 footbed provide superior impact protection. A perforated toe box keeps your flippers cool. You get a well-padded tongue and collar. Elastic tongue centering lace loops keep the tongue from shifting side-to-side and provides a nice, snug fit. Last but certainly not least, the iconic 400 NBS rubber outsole that gripped so well for so long is back in action.

eS Accel OG Shoe - Black Outsole

eS Accel OG Shoes. Low top cupsole construction. All suede upper. Triple stitch toe cap. Large ollie protection area. EVA Midsole and STI Foam Lite Level 1 Footbed for impact protection. Perforated toe box. Padded tongue and collar. Elastic tongue centering straps. 400 NBS rubber outsole. Metal lace loops.

We’ve been told these are being released in limited quantities. I know, I know, not cool. Hopefully they’ll keep the eS Accel OG in production this time around and we can just wear them out till we’re a hundred years old. Until then, be sure to swoop on your pair at Skate warehouse ASAP! Then subscribe to the Go Skate Blog for all the newest stuff, collabs, how to’s, reviews, videos and more. Go skate!

Maybe your particular skate rat just started skating. Or perhaps this ragtag rider just came into your life and you have no idea what's useful, what's cool and what's totally lame. If you're in need of gifts that are sure to delight any skater, we've got some big little winners in this post. Here's SW's top 10 list for that dirtbag, stunt-hungry, skate rat you're shopping for.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas SW Snowman

Are you stuck on stocking stuffer ideas for the skate rat in your life? Probably not. It’s pretty easy to shop for skateboarders. Then again, maybe your particular skate rat just started skating. Or perhaps this ragtag rider just came into your life and you have no idea what’s useful, what’s cool and what’s totally lame. If you’re in need of some advice on stocking stuffers that are sure to delight any skateboarding enthusiast, we’ve got some big little winners below. Here is our top 10 list of stocking stuffer ideas to get that dirtbag, stunt-hungry, skate rat.

Top 10 Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Skateboarders

Stocking Stuffer Ideas - Air Freshener

#10 – Air Fresheners. Life is stinky. Skate life is even stinkier. Graphically, skate brand air fresheners tend to be on the awesome side, so this one should score a couple points. Find out what his or her favorite brands are and move in that direction—or simply get one made by Skate Mental. A skater will be stoked to fly the scented flag. You’ll receive pleasant odors instead of B.O. and that dirty laundry aroma. Air fresheners in the stocking are a win-win.

#9 – Shoe Laces. It might sound like a weak ass gift but shoe laces are actually crucial to us. Skateboarding tears through laces faster than kids shred gift wrap, so we’re almost always in need of an extra set. This one is sort of a double dipper, too, if the skater in mind wears a shoe lace in place of a belt. You might think a lace belt is stupid. He thinks it’s super cool. Whatever. Shoe laces are a perfectly legit, affordable stocking stuffer.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas - Sk8ology

#8 – Sk8ology Deck Display. There are many ways to hang a skateboard. Most are free and fairly simple. You can use fishing line or drywall screws or hooks or whatever you want. But none are as clean and unobtrusive as the Sk8ology Deck Display. Nine out of ten doctors agree, this easy-to-use method of hanging a skateboard deck is the safest and least stressful. Preferred by professionals and art galleries around the world, Sk8ology is the way to go. Naturally, this makes a great stocking stuffer if you also give your skateboarding enthusiast an artsy-fartsy board to hang up.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas - Skate Stickers

#7 – Skate Stickers. Hands down the coolest, simplest, most universally desirable object in skateboarding—besides an actual skateboard—is the skate sticker. There is no such measurement as “too many skate stickers”. Loved by skateboarders and non-skateboarders alike, you can’t go wrong with a fatty sticker pack. Find out his or her favorite brands and go nuts. They’re affordable, they’re fun, they fit in a stocking with ease and we have hundreds to choose from. Skate stickers for the win!

Stocking Stuffer Ideas - Skate Wax

#6 – Skate Wax. Similar to shoe laces, skateboarders are in a constant state of decimating this stuff. Ledges need butter, cubes need gleaming, skateboarders need wax. Skate wax is usually shaped like something silly, from donuts to diamonds to dentures, so it definitely makes a great gift. Give the plank pusher in your life something for lubing up the block and you may just save on medical bills in the future. Another potential win-win stocking stuffer idea.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas - Skate Tool

#5 – Skate Tools. General skateboard maintenance requires three different socket sizes (9/16″, 3/8″ & 1/2″) as well as both Phillips head and Allen head screwdriver bits. That’s too many of Dad’s tools to be carrying around in your pockets. A good skateboard tool combines all of these into one compact, multifunctional unit. Affordable, durable, practical and perfect for stocking stuffer ideas when there’s a skateboarder in your life. What’s the best deal on a tool, you ask? The Skate Warehouse T-Tool in Black or Orange is only $7.99, meets all the requirements and is brand agnostic. Stoke guaranteed.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas - Bearings

#4 – Bearings. Bearings aren’t particularly expensive. They can be expensive if you get Bones Ceramic Swiss or Modus Ceramics but standard issue bearings are commonly under $20. What’s cool about this gift is that a skater doesn’t always need to replace the full set. Quite often a single bearing will get gunked up and stop turning. Having a set for periodic replacements is always a good idea. You could apply the same logic to skate hardware and griptape. These parts pack up tiny so they’re perfect stocking stuffer ideas—and a welcome addition to every skateboarder’s arsenal.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas - HUF Socks

#3 – HUF Plant Life Socks. Canadian maple leaves are super popular in skateboarding. We’re not sure why. Maybe it’s due to the greatness of influential Canadian skateboarders like Rick Howard and Chris Haslam? Perhaps the leaf is a metaphor for the rough outer appearance and organic inner calm of the experienced skateboarder? Maybe HUF can just put anything on a sock and it sells? Who knows. Regardless, HUF Plant Life Socks are a comfortable, fashionable way to keep feet warm and skaters happy. A cozy stocking stuffer idea that’s sure to keep spirits high.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas - Skate Videos

#2 – Skate Videos. Give the gift that keeps on giving. Skateboarding videos are timeless collections of our favorite people doing our favorite stuff. A good vid never gets old. To this day, I still watch VHS tapes from my collection. If you’re not sure which one to get, don’t worry. As long as they don’t already have a copy, any DVD on our website will be a winner. If we carry it, it’s awesome. We especially recommend the new enjoi Oververt video or Girl & Chocolate’s Pretty Sweet.

Skate Warehouse Gift Cards

#1 – Gift Cards. I know, I know, this one sounds like a cop out. It’s not. A gift card is always #1 for stocking stuffer ideas and with good reason. Skateboarders know what they like. They’re also prone to changing their minds often. What better way to avoid giving an under appreciated gift than to let them pick it out themselves? Throw it in a wallet to get some extra bang for your gift buck.

Everything in the list above is under $20 (except the gift cards) and guaranteed to stoke the skate bloke. Of course, we carry hundreds of other items you might want to cram into that giant sock. You could go with belts, beanies, keychains, patches, headphones… the list goes on. If you’re new to being a skate parent or if you’ve never shopped for a skateboarder, anything on the list should be a safe bet.

That wraps up our Top 10 stocking stuffer ideas for skateboarders. We hope it was helpful. If you follow these guidelines and get a happy skateboarder, let us know in the comments below. Happy holidays and go skate!!
