Skate One Distribution is home to BONES Wheels, Powell-Peralta, Bones Bearings, Mini Logo and several other great skate brands. They’ve been responsible for the best bearings and highest performance urethane in skateboarding for decades running and we were excited to get an inside look at the facility. When we arrived, we were pleasantly greeted by our Skate One rep, Jamie Gathard, and our tour guide… George Powell himself!
This week’s Crispy New New is a bit more gooey than your average. With such a sick setup, Suzanne is gonna be slashin’ and thrashin’ in style. We’ve got a Creature Deck, Thunder Trucks, OJ Wheels, Diamond bearings, Mini Logo hardware and Skate Warehouse grip in full purple and green glory. Fiends, creeps, heshers, goons; lurk with us!
The latest release of the Nike SB Dunk Low takes its inspiration from the unique architecture and culture of Beijing, China. The new Nike SB Beijing Dunk Low features a dark grey upper reminiscent of brick courtyards with antique leather side panels imitating ancient city walls and red/gold traditional style adornments that bring the symbolic package together. The Beijing Dunk will be available through Twitter link only tomorrow, Wednesday, Sep. 17th at 8:30am (PDT). Head over and follow us on Twitter for the purchase link!
Habitat Skateboards is one of the sickest brands out. After teaming up with the boys over at Tum Yeto, Habitat is running strong and swingin’ harder than ever. In their most recent venture they present the Java series, featuring pro models from Stefan Janoski, Mark Suciu, Brian Delatorre, Daryl Angel and last but not least, Silas Baxter-Neal. Much like the abundant culture of artisan coffee, Habitat is a reflection of style and tastes from those who know it best. If you haven’t tried one out yet, now’s your time to check em’ out! Or if you’re a loyal Habitat fan get back in on the action HERE
This week our own Jeff Davis, known blogger here at the Skate Warehouse blog, picked the SW Replay. He chose Dylan Rieder in Gravis’ Dylan Video. When asked why he picked it he responded with, “The highwaters.”
