New Ads, Old Ads

Dennis Regan

We are starting the 2019 skateboard season here in Canada. It also marks the start of our ad campaigns in Canadian skateboard magazines.

To get some inspiration, we looked through our past advertisements.

From ads in the defunct Concrete Skateboarding mag, to the long running King Skateboard mag, through the newly reborn SBC Skateboard mag, even the newest Medium Magazine. There was a lot to go through.

We support print media. There is something about paging through a paper magazine that scrolling through an app will never replace.

We even put an ad in The Tubuloids comic book / flexizine release this spring.

Someone had to take the picture, someone had to create a caption, another had to write a story. Then the whole thing is put together to make a cohesive article. The editor comes through and makes sure everything speaks with the voice of the magazine. These voices change over time. Editors come and go. Move to new magazines etc..

Then the whole thing goes to a print shop, where blank paper is transformed into a skateboard mag.

It exists to capture time. Feeling. Acccomplishment. Art.

From print shop to skate shop, then on to homes, bags, bathrooms, and coffee tables. From person to person it is passed and paged through. Always inspiring.

Inspiring the next trick, next trip, or magazine.

We support print media. A bridge to the past, and inspiration for the future.

The Marty by Jivaro Wheels

Dennis Regan

We recently received The Marty Wheel from Jivaro wheels.

It was designed to commemorate Mark ‘ Monk’ Hubbard. Jivaro used artwork and the ethos of Monk on the outside of the wheel.

Everyone in skateboarding knows the incredible contribution that he made to the world of skateboarding.

Dedicated to Mark "Monk" Hubbard, PNW chieftain and skateboard maverick.  A true artist,  Mark's vision and dedication to terrain construction is beyond legendary as he inspired a legion of DIYers to create their own destiny all over the world. Hubbard's Grindline continues to redefine the word "skatepark" in the 21st century. His legacy lives on in the spots he built and destroyed.  Rest in Power Monk.

Proceeds from the sale of the wheel go to Mark’s family and go fund me campaign.

There are highlights from Josh Anderson, Brian Hamm, Cam Barrett, Nick Peterson, and Jojo Heffington. There are more skateboarders in the video, but too many to list. Just watch and enjoy.
