Two new skate brands have hit the shelves of Skate Warehouse. We’re excited to announce the launch of Polar Skate Co. and Isle Skateboards. Two european brands with sick graphics and skate crews that rip. We’ve given the two brands a little break down here at the Go Skate Blog with some pics, some videos and a little bit of background information. Continue reading to better yourself as a human.
Isle Skateboards is a British-born company brought to you by former Blueprint pros Paul Shier and Nick Jensen. Formed only in 2013, these guys are off to a good start. Isle is a sort of skate/art collective that explores the balancing act between the two. Their first few short films demonstrate this beautifully by contrasting the push and pull of opposite concepts and can be found over at Kingpin. They feature Tom Knox, Nick Jensen, Sylvain Tognelli, Chris Jones and Casper Brooker. You should check those out and head back to Skate Warehouse to pick up a deck from the new Push/Pull Series.
Their current full team is Chris Jones, Jon Nguyen, Sylvain Tognelli, Nick Jensen, Tom Knox and Paul Shier. You should check out their website at Isle Skateboards online and then follow them on their social media. We did.

Polar Skateboards is another member in the list of new skate brands here at SW. A european skateboard company from the north based in Malmö, Sweden, Polar was started by Pontus Alv in 2011.
They’ve put out a lot of rad videos including their promos and No Complies & Wallrides, seen below. Polar’s team includes Hjalte Halberg, Jerome Campbell, Aaron Herrington, Michał Juraś, Pontus Alv and Kevin Rodriguez. Their junior team consists of Oskar Rozenberg Hallberg and David Stenström. The American Expressions Deck is certainly one way to have a good laugh at ourselves, even if it is a sad laugh.
