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!

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.

Coping Bash Round 2

Dennis Regan

Speedlab Wheels and Vulcan Bolts sponsored Round 2 of the Coping Bash. 

This contest was presented by Skull Skates on SBC restaurant's 65 foot wide mini ramp. 

It was held during the KNOWSHOW tradeshow in Vancouver. A perfect event to showcase the Vancouver skateboard talent to all of the tradeshow attendees.

King Skate Mag's Jeff Thorburn caught much of the action in pictures. These beautiful black and white photos capture the spirit and energy of the event.

Congratulations to James Clarke for taking First!
