Element Sends 300 Skaters To Camp

by The Editors on July 12, 2018

In 2018 Element Skateboards is passing out 300 skate camp scholarships to deserving skateboarders from around the world. And it all stems from founder Johnny Schillereff’s love of skate camp when he was growing up.

“I moved around a lot and did not have much stability when I was young. That camp and skateboarding were the only constants in my life,” Schillereff says. “Being able to share skateboarding and the outdoors with kids who are in a similar situation that I was is so important to both Element and me personally. We couldn’t be more excited to make this contribution to the skateboarding community. This year, Element will send over 300 kids to skate camps around the world.”

How’s that for giving back to skateboarding by giving back to skateboarding? For the official word from Element, please follow the jump.

RIP: Grindline Founder Mark Hubbard

by The Editors on June 9, 2018

Mark “Monk” Hubbard, the mind and muscle behind Grindline Skateparks and the DIY skatepark movement in general died June 8, 2018 at his home in West Seattle, according to a story on Fox Q 13. His cause of death has not be announced. Hubbard was 47 years old.

For skateboarders across the world, Hubbard was a significant figure. In the early 90’s, he helped build Portland’s Burnside Skatepark, seen by many as the model for modern parks. “This guy invented DIY (Do it Yourself).” Thrasher Magazine Editor-in-Chief Jake Phelps said. “You see kids out there digging ditches for skateboarding, it’s because of Marty.” . . .Hubbard transformed his love of DIY skateboarding into a business. He and his Grindline crews built parks from Orcas Island to Israel with a passion that transcended a mere job.

We will think of him every time we roll the flowing lines of Mammoth’s Brother’s Skatepark. Hubbard is survived by his wife Jenny and three children Kaya, Leona, and Odin. Our thoughts are with them all. If you’d like to send a gift to support the family, please click the link for GoFundMe.

Patagonia’s Worn Wear Wagon Wetsuit Repairs

by The Editors on June 6, 2018

The Patagonia Worn Wear Wagon is hitting the road again this summer, only this time, they’re bringing the gear to repair wetsuits as well (any brand of wetsuit).

Patagonia’s Worn Wear program was created in 2013 to encourage people to change their relationship with stuff. The program provides significant resources for responsible care, repair, reuse, resale and recycling at the end of a garment’s life. Known for building highly durable products, Patagonia strongly believes in the intangible value of things that accumulate meaning over time. The memories contained in patches, stitches and scars can’t be replaced with something new – and Worn Wear aims to help customers celebrate those stories.

If you wetsuit (or any of your Patagonia gear) is in need of a fix, bring it in. One item per person. For all the details, follow the jump.
