Jim Greco has been dropping hammers for almost 20 years. From Birdhouse to Zero to Baker to Deathwish, Greco has managed to one-up himself in every part he’s put out, time and time again. Now in the year of the pro-turned-entrepreneur, he’s rising to a new challenge with his own company startup. Greco is dropping a new skate brand on the firing pin and you’re damn right it’s called Hammers.
enjoi has done it once again, this time with the gut-bustin’ Art Classics series. For this inspired collection enjoi took pieces of fine art and imposed pictures of their riders face on them. Genius, and hilarious. Ever wondered what Louie Barletta would look like as the Mona Lisa? Well, now you know. Pick up your new enjoi art classic from the Series Spotlight page and be sure to check out the trailer for enjoi’s new video Oververt!
If you missed the freak show at your local county fair don’t worry, Deathwish has you covered. From Strongman Jon Dickson to The Horrific Lizard King, these boards each have a personal touch from their respective pros. Brian Hansen may as well be dog-faced and it’s well known Ellington is a human oddity. With a heavy dose of humor and one of the sickest teams out, this series is an ace in the hole. And as always, Deathwish provides top notch wood and shapes in sizes to suit any skater. Pick em’ up HERE.
If you’re tired of the same ol’ same ol’ look no further than the Organika Growth Control Series. This fresh new take from Organika brings you three radical shapes from three radical pros. Eli Reed, Walker Ryan and Josh Matthews are all featured on brightly colored, 80’s inspired graphics and shapes to help fulfill all your wildest dreams. Take ’em for a cruise, to the park or hit the streets- these shapes are highly fun and functional. Check ’em out on the Series Spotlight!
The Knights series is Palace Skateboards most recent offering after their union with our pals over at Baker Boys Distribution. Palace is raw and unapologetically skateboarding, so it only makes sense they teamed up with one of the most skate-rat distributions in the game. Now that Palace is more readily available to us in the states, you can expect to see a lot more from them at SW! Pick yours up here!
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!
