Crispy New New Welcome Indy

It’s no doubt that fun-shaped boards are hot right now. With so many brands jumping on the band wagon it’s hard to tell who’s legit and who’s in it for the buck. Welcome Skateboards is one of the first and most original “fun-shaped” brands out there. This week’s Cripsy New New from Jonathan out of CA is sure to be a super solid and fun setup. Topped off with Indys, Bones Wheels and Bearings and Bro Style trim, Jonathan will be rolling in style for days to come.

Crispy New New | Jonathan from CA

Crispy New New Welcome Indy

Deck: Welcome No Strange Delight on Sledgehammer 9.0″ x 32.4″
Trucks: Independent Stage 10.5 Forged Hollow 159(8.75″)
Wheels: Bones Bingaman Tank STF v5 55mm
Bearings: Bones Super Swiss 6
Risers: Dooks 1/8″
Hardware: Bro Style Colored Bro Bolts
Griptape: Bro Style Weedazzle

Welcome Skateboards boasts radical shapes on some of the best wood out. 7-ply maple construction from PS Stix guarantees you’re getting a quality product and Welcome always provides graphic bliss. A perfect “fun-shaped” board with an emphasis on function.

Crispy New New Welcome Indy

The Independent Stage 10.5 forged hollow truck features a Stage 11 hanger on Stage 10 forged baseplates. This gives you the kingpin clearance and ride height similar to a stage 11 truck, but with the added benefits of the light-weight forged Stage 10 baseplate. With classic Indy geometry and quality, this is a premium high-grade truck.

Dooks Risers do exactly what you want them to do: prevent wheel bite. Hard plastic construction keeps them from mushing out and makes for a more durable riser.

Crispy New New Welcome Indy

The Bones STF Bingaman Tank V5 Wheels are specifically formulated for what you skate. The Bingamans are made with the Bones Street Tech Formula, giving you more control and way less flat spots. Made in the U.S. at the Bones factory in Santa Barbara, California, they’re skater engineered and designed.

Bones Super Swiss 6 Ball Bearings (SS6) are fundamentally different from the famous Bones Swiss. Super Swiss come with six, 3/16 inch balls instead of seven, 5/32 inch balls used in most 608 bearings. Thus, the SS6 balls are 20% larger and roll fewer times to go the same distance. Like bigger wheels on a car, they create less rolling friction and have a higher top speed. SS6’s special design and Swiss quality materials enable it to accelerate quicker, roll faster, and resist the impact of skate trick landings better than standard designs. The advantage of this design is higher speed, faster acceleration, greater strength and durability.

Crispy New New Welcome Indy

Bro Style Colored Bro Bolts hold your board together in style. If you need ‘em on your setup they might as well looks good! Set of eight assorted color bolts.

It’s Weedazzled! The Bro Style Weedazzle Grip is as fabulous as it is chill. Support the bros and show your allegiance loud and proud. Backin’ it!

This year marks two decades of the big red chunk and the Chocolate Skateboards crew has been celebrating in a myriad ways. One of their latest commemorations is a collaborative coupling of Poler Stuff with the Chocolate Skateboards aesthetic, made custom for Kenny Anderson. The two primo pieces in this limited edition Poler x Chocolate Kenny Anderson Collection are guaranteed to travel well together. You can’t lose sight of bright red, the quality of Poler Stuff is undeniable and you’re repping one of the freshest skateboarding brands on the planet. If it’s good enough for The Perfect Man, it’s good enough for anybody!

Poler x Chocolate Kenny Anderson Collection

The special edition deck in this capsule is a hybrid mid shape with a pointed nose and full tail. Measuring in at 8.75″ wide and 33″ in length with a 14.5″ wheelbase, the graphic on this all red Kenny Anderson signature model keeps Chocolate Skateboards and Poler Stuff squarely represented. Solid, tasteful, very low in trans fat. Damn near perfect.

Poler x Chocolate Kenny Anderson Deck

If you dig the deck you’ll want to scoop the Poler x Chocolate Drifter Backpack too. This bag has an always-important velcro padded flap on the back to keep your board secure in transit. Without the board, you can’t even tell it’s there. Padded laptop sleeves hold up to a 15″ computer. It’s got daisy chain side webbing for endless sling-ability and a front exterior slash pocket for odds and ends. The body is 1000D Campdura fabric and it’s lined with 420D nylon. The webbing is seatbelt quality, high-tensile strength nylon. Poler Cyclops logos are embossed on every brass snap. The leather pull tabs have Camp Vibes embossed into them for a daily reminder of what’s good in life. Measurements are a modest 18″ x 7.5″ x 10″ but it’s got more flavor than a truckload of candy bars.

Poler x Chocolate Kenny Anderson Backpack

These limited release Poler x Chocolate Kenny Anderson items are available now at Skate Warehouse. Join Chocolate Skateboards’ 20 year anniversary celebration, pick these gems up and hit the road with your friends.

WeSC x Stereo Shop Entrance

We drove down to Los Angeles for a “2 Decades Of Stereo Skateboards” retrospective exhibit and the release of their first ever WeSC x Stereo collaboration. The event was held at Kingswell in Los Feliz. Kingswell is a small yet distinguished brick and mortar spot that tastefully combines a fully functioning tattoo shop, art gallery and skateboarding retail. They host art openings and photography shows monthly and if you’re in the area, you should definitely swing by for a visit. If you go this month you can still catch the Stereo Skateboards display!

We arrived early to meet with Chris Pastras and Jason Lee for an exclusive walkthrough of the exhibit. We laced them up with mics, flipped on the cameras and they took us on a casual stroll down memory lane. From Blue Skateboards in the early 90’s, through the first years of Stereo, all the way up to this year’s WeSC x Stereo collaborative capsule. Don’t touch that dial, kids—video coming soon!

Two Decades Of Stereo Skateboards

The Stereo Skateboards retrospective exhibit is a hand picked selection of decks and historical artifacts, curated by Chris Pastras, from throughout the 20+ year lifespan of skateboarding’s classiest label. Chris painstakingly filtered through two storage units of Stereo boards and accoutrements, whittling it all down to a dozen boxes of the choicest cuts. The walls of Kingswell are right now adorned with an impressive glimpse into the historical long-play of Stereo’s lifespan.

The WeSC x Stereo capsule collection features artwork by Clint Peterson and photo tees of Lee and Pastras shot by Tobin Yelland in the early 90’s. It includes decks, crewnecks, t-shirts, long sleeves, caps and beanies and will be available at Skate Warehouse this holiday. What makes this artistic collusion so special is that the Stereo founders were actually the very first international WeActivists for WeSC. These guys have repped the brand for over 10 years and their joint production is a long time coming.

We were very impressed by both the exhibit and the exquisite temperament of the Kingswell crew. You guys are top shelf. Big thanks to our gracious hosts—everyone at Kingswell, Jason Lee, Chris Pastras and Clint Peterson. Extra thanks to everyone involved, especially Pizzanista, Deschutes Brewery, PBR, Sk8ology, The Skateboard Mag and DJ Mexi!

Halloween Costume Ideas Ed Templeton

You only have 5 days to get your costume together. The clock is ticking, the witches are cackling, the french maids are putting on their makeup. You must decide! Consumer polls estimate that over $7 billion will be spent on Halloween this year. That’s way too much, people. Halloween costume ideas don’t have to be complex or expensive. If you’re a skate nerd, all you need is a little cleverness and a few simple items from around the house. If you live a skateboarding lifestyle I can almost guarantee you’ve got the goods laying around. Need some inspiration? Check out the list below. We’ll help you put together a distinct skateboarder costume to rival the dorkiest of trick-or-treater togs. Here are 12 skateboarders that also make great Halloween costume ideas. Enjoy!

12 Skateboarders That Are Great
DIY Halloween Costume Ideas

Richie Jackson Halloween Costume Ideas

First on the list is the renowned and uniquely talented Kiwi skateboarder, Richie Jackson. Going as Richie Jackson for Halloween, many passers by will mistake you for a Hippy, a Gypsy, a Pirate or even a Musketeer. But you can say to them, “Nay, I am none of those mundane and unimaginative things!” If you have long wavy hair, you’re in. You should wax and curl a ‘stache, get out that wild silk paisley shirt in the back of the closet and wear some of your sister’s jewelry. Throw on some thrift store bell bottom pants. If you’ve got a top hat, nice touch. To complete this Halloween costume idea, all you have left to do is land a hundred tricks that no one’s ever even thought of before. You got this! Mind altering substances are, of course, optional.

Are you Rufio from Hook? Nah bro, I’m 1980’s Christian Hosoi. If you have a Hosoi board and some pads at home, this one shouldn’t be too hard. Slap some pink rails on the bottom of the deck. Ask (or don’t ask) your sister for her craziest spandex capris. Throw some blonde highlights in your hair. Cut the sleeves off of a Metallica shirt and learn McTwists. Tuck an extra t-shirt into your waist. Excessive confidence and boisterous flare will be your M.O. this year.

Love him or hate him, Jereme Rogers a.k.a. J. Casanova is a distinct personality in the world of (former?) professional skateboarding. Jereme Rogers Halloween Costume IdeasFor this costume, you’re going to need a brand new Sharpie to draw 3 tattoos on your shorthaired head. Under your right eye, a musical note. On the left side of your neck write, “In God I Trust,” and on the right side “I Fear No Man”. Once that dries, get a big blingy chain, some too-big denim and the oldest DVS Shoes in your wardrobe. The shoes should match the shirt: a black or red, large-print tee from one of his (former) sponsors, like Diamond Supply Co or Plan B. Need a wingman? Tell your buddy to go as Lil’ Wayne. Need a pickup line? Say, “Word around town? Magnums what I fit.” True, there are 30 thousand hundred million better Halloween costume ideas but none can touch the swag level on this one. Roger that!

The iconic style of 1970’s Tony Alva makes an easy Halloween costume idea. Dressing as a 2014 Tony Alva makes you look like Drexel from True Romance. Go classic. Grab yourself an Alva Re-Issue Deck or borrow one of your Dad’s old school boards. Throw on a curly rocker wig, wrap a bandana around it, yank up some striped crew socks. Skate an empty pool in short shorts with aggressive confidence. Join the Lords Of Dogtown this Halloween and you’ll be pickin’ up Farrah Fawcett looking chicks in no time.

Tony Alva Halloween Costume Ideas 2

The next one is really easy. If you want to put zero effort into one of these Halloween costume ideas, I got you. Do you own a red skate t-shirt? Toss that red floss on your slightly pudgy torso and voila! you’re Andy Schrock. This costume is most effective with a loving wife, a skateboarding infant and a camera in your hand. Live, skate, die, Revive!

Chris Haslam Halloween Costume Ideas

Everyone and their mother has a big biker beard these days. Do you? How about a heavy metal band t-shirt? Black hoodzip or vest? You’re halfway to Chris Haslam. Throw on your Globe Shoes. A Vestal Watch is a convincing touch. Tousle your long hair or put a beanie on. Slap some badass patches on your hoodie/vest. Wear a tank top below. You’re done! Are you more of a Deathwish/Spitfire dude? Throw on some holed up jeans and a 3/4 sleeve shirt. Bring your dog everywhere and you can be Brian ‘Slash’ Hansen instead. Two grown-ass-man Halloween costume ideas. Cheap and easy.

You may already dress like Rob Dyrdek. If so, you look fly and you’re already Halloweened up, dawg! Color-coordinate a DC New Era, a DC T-Shirt and your freshest pair of DC Shoes. Get a blingy chain and hang a DC Keychain from it. Try to find a cheap DC Ring. Drink Monster Energy mixers all night. You won’t look ridiculous but you’ll embody ridiculousness. Pick up line? “Google my net worth.”

Chad Muska Halloween Costume Ideas

We are the music makers and we are the dreamers of dreams… fulfill your own dreams and spend Samhain in the stash-pocketed shoes of 1990s Chad Muska. You all know exactly the frame I’m going to reference for this one. Red Ghetto Child tank, thin gold chain, camo backpack, boom box in tow. Chad Muska will always be The Muska but 1998 Shorty’s demo crooked grind Muska is The Muska. Unless you’re a shirt-hoarding skate-nerd, this may be one of those Halloween costume ideas worthy of some eBay time. Muska kills!

Pay homage to the bible’s Editor In Chief and go as Jake Phelps for Halloween. Music buffs might think you’re Elvis Costello but your skate friends will know what’s up. You’ll need some thick-rimmed glasses in Phelper’s timeless style. You’re going to carry dice in your pocket for drinking games. You’ll have to stay blitzkrieg drunk and keep your middle fingers up all night. The facial hair ought to be about a two-day gruff. The hairdo is something like David Beckham with a hangover. Can’t do the hair? Your hat should be a tan straw fedora. Throw a down vest over a hoodie and a Thrasher T-shirt and you’re good to go. Hail Satan.

Jim Greco Halloween Costume Ideas

The 2014 Greco is somewhere between Wolverine and a World War II Fighter Pilot and just looks awesome. As far as Halloween costume ideas go however, it’s the bad Johnny Thunders, post-Baker2G, Flamboyant Jim Greco that we’re going for here. If you can pull off the huge, black, glam metal hair then it’s pretty much a free-for-all after that. Google search New York Dolls for reference and you’ll be on point. Leopard print leather jacket with a tiger stripe scarf tie? Go for it. Black eyeliner, red lipstick, all red leather everything? You got it. Just be sure to rock the wildest Supra High Tops you can find and sharpie a Hammers logo somewhere on your body. Don’t go so far as to shoot drugs and fuck hookers though—Greco’s been there and done that so we don’t have to. Thanks Jim!

Dylan Rieder Halloween Costume Ideas

As far as Halloween costume ideas go, Dylan Reider isn’t a particularly strange one. In fact, you’re really just dressing well and looking handsome. It’s sort of like a new James Dean mixed with Mike Patton of Faith No More or 90’s Leonardo DiCaprio. Dye your hair black. Slick it back. White v-neck t-shirt. Cuff up your most expensive black denim or go high water slacks. Neatly lace up and polish your Huf Dylans. Smoke cigarettes and stare broodingly into the distance. You won’t even need a pickup line.

If none of these Halloween costume ideas work for you, I have one back up idea. It’ll only cost you a few bucks. It’s not a costume, but the new Altamont x FOS Horror Movie Tees are perfect Halloween threads. Read more about them in this blog post and order one from Skate Warehouse today—we can still get it to you in time!

There were others on the list, of course. Ali Boulala, Corey Duffel, Bam Margera, etc—but this should be enough jump start your own DIY Halloween costume ideas. Are people going to recognize your costume? Who cares. If they don’t skate, they don’t relate. When non-skateboarders ask, “who are you supposed to be?” just throw up the big middle and keep pushing. Your friends will get it and that’s the important thing.

If you go as some characteristic skateboarder for Halloween, post a picture in the comments below. Subscribe to the Go Skate Blog for weird ideas, skate videos, breaking news, interviews and more. Be safe out there. Don’t die. Happy Halloween!

Transworld Outliers-3

We premiered TransWorld Skateboarding‘s 26th video, ‘Outliers’ at the Palm Theatre here in San Luis Obispo last night. It was a good turn out and we raffled away a pile of sweet TransWorld stuff. Before the TransWorld Outliers screening, we threw on a Jazztato teaser for the upcoming Jazzpush video which features a bunch of local rippers. Good edit Johnny Jazzpush! The premiere was a blast and as always, we were super stoked to see everyone that came out.

The TransWorld Outliers video—produced by Chris Thiessen—features Riley Hawk, Lee Yankou, Neen Williams, Marius Syvanen, Zered Bassett and Brad Cromer. This diverse array of styles with an equally diverse array of geographical backgrounds is the inspiration for the title, Outliers. The filming is top notch, the skateboarding is next level and the music is well synced. Another year down, another killer TransWorld video on the books. Good job, Chris!

Thanks again to everyone at TransWorld and the Palm Theatre (what up Geoff!). Big fistbump to all of our locals and crew. Check out photos from the premiere below. Go skate!

Matt Reason RIP

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Matt Reason earlier this week. For those of you who don’t know, Matt Reason was an undeniably talented skater in the mid 90’s who, along with Ricky Oyola, changed the perception of East Coast skateboarding and coverage. During an era of small wheels and low pop, Matt was riding 63mm wheels and innovating switch skating with style.

For the SW replay, I chose Matt’s Pro Files part from 411VM issue 12. Take note of the spots. It’s raw street skating at it’s finest. I could easily imagine this footage in a modern day Polar video. I hope anybody who watches this becomes inspired to pick up their board and explore their surroundings!

R.I.P. Matt Reason 1973–2014

SW Replays are classic parts hand-picked by Skate Warehouse employees. They could be new, old, dirty, bloody, gnarly, fuzzy, blurry, bonkers, sketchy, epic, infamous, overlooked or just plain local. It could be your sponsor me tape. It could be Nyjah’s Fade To Black. It could be old pros or new ams. It could be better… or worse then you ever imagined. Keep your eyes peeled for new featured parts from the SW crew. Go skate and bust a switch wallie for our fallen comrade Matt Reason. R.I.P.

DC Matt Miller Shoes Frontpage

Matt Miller has been shredding the wood and wheels for DC Shoes since 2008. Since then he’s turned pro for Expedition One and been a Berrics Battle Commander. He’s been a Street League contestant. His part in the TransWorld Skateboarding video And Now was epic. His nollies pop higher than your highest ollies. He looks like Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad. He’s an all around good dude and just plain rips on a skateboard. How many more reasons do you need? The time has come to give Matt Miller a signature shoe. We’re proud to announce that the new DC Matt Miller Shoes are now available at Skate warehouse!

DC Shoes: Introducing the Matt Miller Pro Model

DC Matt Miller Shoes Grey Insole

The DC Matt Millers boast some pretty evolved tech. They’re designed for optimized breathability and maximum support—two features not usually found in the same shoe. With a completely redesigned outsole exclusive to the Matt Miller, these kicks really stand apart from the rest. You get DC’s ultra durable Super Suede and the innovative no-sew construction found in the Mike Mo and Cole Lite 2. With an open cell mesh collar and tongue plus well ventilated mesh side panels, you’ve pretty much found unparalleled breathability. Throw in the Ortholite footbed, moisture wicking Dry Tex lining and “Pill Pattern” tread and you have a perfect high-performance shoe for street skating. Congrats, Matt, your first DC pro model is a banger!

I wanted a shoe that looked good when you looked down. I also wanted something supportive and lightweight. It has ventilation windows in it that keep my feet really cool when I’m skating too. Breathability is super important to me. Overall, it’s just a really durable shoe that skates really well.”
