Adek Skateboard Deck

Graffiti // Thursday, September 15, 2011
Theflopbox.com just posted an assortment of eye pleasing new photos, including this photo of an Adek Skateboard deck in collaboration with Ari Marcopoulos.  These skateboards were part of Ari’s new photography show, Abandon Sleep that opened last weekend at Ratio 3 gallery in San Francisco.  We have a feeling these are not normally priced skateboards and very limited.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 03, 2011
We recently ran across Janie Belcourt's well-designed furniture constructed mostly of reclaimed skateboard decks on the blog \ \ \. Her usage of found materials is appealing and her story sounds like a romantic novel of some sorts . . .

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 01, 2011
We have seen the reinterpretation of skateboards and skate culture many times, but there is just something about this particular piece that is in the “I Want to Skate” video for Public Domaine: Skateboard Culture at La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris that seems to nail the "I dream of skating concept" very well.

In Illustration: The Work of Brian Romero

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 27, 2011
Skateboard graphics aren't anything new to talk about— nor are they, frankly, anything to get excited about in the last few years. With most companies slapping down poorly designed logos or half-assed stoner ideas that nobody understands— it's reassuring to see well-rendered illustration and a story being told within the confines of a narrow 32-inch work area.

LIFE Magazine Goes Skateboarding

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 16, 2011
We were just wandering through the archives of LIFE Magazine, and saw these classic skateboard photos from both NYC and the West Coast. Of course there was the classic LIFE cover from 1965 featuring girl's skate champion, Pat McGee, so LIFE has a legacy in the 1960s of covering skateboard culture.
