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.

Vagrant Skateboard's Diego Alvarado Forus Video

Dennis Regan

Forus Skateshop has release a video of Diego Alvarodo ripping through the Southwest.

This Vagrant Skateboards’ team rider hits the streets, ditches and DIY spots. Sometimes wearing a Leeside skatepark tee. This guy knows DIY.

Diego starts of with a double set kickflip attempt that leaves you wanting a second try. Then we go on a tour of various street spots and ditches. Where he launches, grinds, and flows through spots under the desert sun. Diego skateboards with a distinct style. Point it, and flow through.

Near the end he hits some fantastic Do It Yourself Skateparks. Finding a way to get rad in spots that weren’t meant to be.

Finally he comes back for that double set kick flip, riding away with a smile and a wave.

Watch and see.

Stay Awaysted by Westernworld Clothing

Dennis Regan

Be warned, this video starts out with a banger.

Westernworld clothing has put together a sequel to their popular video Awaysted. It is most of the same crew with some new faces. Skating new spots from the streets of SF to the DIY of FDR.

They travel, skate, and try to ‘Stay Away’ from the rigours of normal life. Who wants normalcy anyway?

Vagrant Skateboard’s team rider Elijah Akerley puts together another great part. From raw hillbombs, to crazy lines in backyard pools, to the most hard to reach ditch, he will find a way.

Enjoy the hard work of Adam Anorga and the crew of Westernworld Clothing.

Vagrant Skateboards are available to Canadian skateboard shops through Platform Distribution.
