Thank You For 5 Years!

Dennis Regan

We are grateful for the ongoing support of our Canadian retailers.

So grateful that we ran an ad in SBC Skateboard magazine to thank them!

5 years of support! Thank you all!

5 years of support! Thank you all!

We started bringing core skateboard companies to Canada 5 years ago. We had the plan to offer Canadian skateboarders access to smaller skater owned companies that they couldn’t get.

We reached out to many small brands and over the years we have built great relationships with them. Some have folded along the way. As it goes in business. Nothing is guaranteed.

Some brands like Jetty clothing have exploded in to the Canadian retail space. Shops that are willing to try something less corporate are singing its praises.

After receiving their first delivery of Jetty clothing in the Fall of 2018, Mick from HTO in Victoria sent us this email.

Do you have any stock in Canada?? This stuff is selling like crazy!

Many of our first time retailers have done in season orders after seeing the high quality products from Jetty.

The story is great. It started 14 years ago with 5 guys putting $200 in a hat. Now it is selling across North America. 3 of the first 5 founders still work day in and day out in the business. When is the last time you heard that?

They have always focused on using eco friendly inks in their own screen printing factory. All of their cut and sew is made using best practices.

All of our hardgood brands are skater owned and operated.

Focused on making great product and supporting great skateboarders to get the next trick.

Bacon Skateboards are making the best concaves and crushing the underground. Moonshine Skateboards are supporting the outsiders of the outsiders; freestyle and vert. Speedlab Wheels are making the best Made In USA wheels that money can buy. Blood Wizard is supporting the activities of brave skateboarders pushing what is possible in the concrete playground. Send Help Skateboards are taking the art of Todd Bratrud and making it into perfect skateboarding tools. Vagrant Skates is supporting the underserved. PS Stix pressed and graphics by the best. Dieta skateboards is the true work hard, play hard brand. Proper Footwear is designed to last and skate right out of the box. Vulcan Bolts are forged by the hand of the gods in the forge. The Portland Wheel company is making creative urethanes right there in the USA. Skate Balm is making the world skateable, one ledge at a time; Maintain That Flow. Jivaro Wheels are on the darker wave, with made in the USA urethane and a darker look at the world we all live in.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Pool Maintenance With Thrasher Magazine

Dennis Regan

Thrasher Magazine has put up a video featuring Lifeblood Skateboards and Vagrant Skateboards team riders like; Elijah Akerley, Jojo Heffington, Zane Timpson, Kevin Kowalski, and Cody Lockwood. 

Brendan Klein, put together this amazing edit capturing the energy of the Pool Maintenance crew. 

In the backyards of Arizona's scorched earth, skate outlaws continue their endless search for empty backyard drinks. Skateboarding will always be a crime.

Wholesale Distributor For Vagrant Skateboards

Dennis Regan

We are proud to be the exclusive Canadian wholesale distributor for Vagrant Skates

The team has never been better. The product has alway been pressed by the best (PS Stix). Their art direction has featured artists like Jesse Midgett, Lucas Musgrave, Sterling Bartlett, Black Hole, Arkaid, FOS, and Hiroyuki Hirroton.

They released their first full length skate video, Spare Change, earlier this year. It has been viewed thousands of times on The Berrics

And it feels like they are just getting started. 

In the next few weeks we will be receiving the next release from Vagrant Skateboards. You can see the current line up in the picture below.

Western Canada Skate Shop Trip

Dennis Regan

We had a great time on our Western Canada Skate Shop trip. We drove through BC, AB and SK. We stopped at as many shops as we could to say Hello and meet shop owners and employees. 

This is what makes Skateboarding great. Going to a new town or city, meeting the guys at the local shops and finding out what their town has to offer. Most shops would suggest their local park or the closest spot to check out. Some even had food suggestions. You gotta check out the donair place in Cochrane, AB. Down the street from Shredz. Super good food and good guys!

We also got to stop at some great new parks. Sylvan Lake, has had this park for a few years now. But we were able to get a shred in before the summer storms came through.

Sylvan Lake, AB as the rains came....

Sylvan Lake, AB as the rains came....

As we went through the Prairie Provinces, the rain followed us. We were able to get a session in in Medicine Hat, AB, just as the sun was going down. That meant that the mosquitoes were coming out. You couldn't stop moving or else you would get eaten alive. This made for a tiring session, and we ate a few mosquitoes as we pushed around this park. 

Medicine Hat, AB. Lots of mosquitoes...

Medicine Hat, AB. Lots of mosquitoes...

Thanks to all our hosts along the way and big thanks to all of the skateboard shops supporting skateboarding. Keep up the good work!
