Andy Anderson x Brett Novak Make A Skate Film

Dennis Regan

This summer film maker Brett Novak came to Vancouver to film with Vulcan Bolts’ team rider Andy Anderson.

Brett has an amazing eye for skateboarding. He captures the style and power of Andy Anderson. With a smooth pace, the video captures both skateboarding and Vancouver’s beauty.

“Balance - the flow of water, and the consistency of concrete. The ground, and the spaces in between. The simplicity of instability, and the complexities of flat ground. Riding the board, face down, face up, and face out. The purposeful objects of the city, plus the joy of play. The corners, sharp and round. Forwards, backwards, and spinning, all coming together.” - Andy Anderson

Watch the video, you will understand.

Andy Anderson Interviewed By Stacey Peralta

Dennis Regan

Vulcan Bolts team rider Andy Anderson, sat down with Powell Peralta for an interview. This Powell Story covers what drives Andy. 

How does he see skateboarding. Is it a game, a sport? His answer will surprise you. For such a young man, he has amazing insight into the activity of skateboarding.

He even gives Stacey Peralta a new answer to an old question.

Watch the video below to understand. 

Andy Anderson is one of a kind. One of the most interesting and open minded skaters that you could ever meet. From free style skateboarding to big rails, vert ramps, and bowls, Andy has something for it all.

Vulcan Bolts has been supporting Andy Anderson for a few years now. We think he is only starting to make his mark on the skateboard world. 

There will be much more to come.

See Andy set up a new board with Nigel K Alexander of NKA Vids in the video below. His take on gripping a 9 inch wide board will impress you!

Vulcan Bolts Makes Griptape!

Dennis Regan

Griptape has always been an essential part of skateboarding. It has to be grippy enough to control your board, but slippery enough to toss it around.

It is a tough line to walk. Grip to Slip ratio.

Vulcan Bolts has sampled and tested until they came up with the right combination. Grippy enough to pop, slippy enough to flick. 

Vulcan Griptape has arrived at Platform Distribution. 

The griptape was all worked out. Then they added the comic on the back. It calls back to the comic strip in 25 cent bubble gums. Just enough to make you smile!

Platform Distribution is the wholesale distributor for Vulcan Bolts hardware, bearings, and griptape. Contact your sales rep to bring Vulcan into your shop.
