The one thing New York City needs right now is another surf shop, right? And Patagonia is going to give it to them right straight in the Bowery. Work has reportedly begun at 313 Bowery according to a story on Bowery Boogie.
A batch of permits was recently filed with the DOB for “structural work in an existing store” and for the forthcoming illuminated “Fish” sign. Plus, a mess of scaffolding also made an appearance yesterday morning. Patagonia initially intended to open the surf shop in the fall, but Hurricane Sandy totally sidelined the project. With work already underway, a summertime launch doesn’t seem out of the question.
Yeah, they’d almost have to have it done by summer. For more, click the link.

Santa Cruz County sheriff’s deputies were patrolling the city of Santa Cruz when they were dispatched to the store, located at the corner of Cooper Street and Pacific Avenue, just before 1 a.m. Two people had smashed the front window of the business, stole skateboards and then fled, deputy April Skalland said.
Dean and Hark were identified by witnesses and appeared to be depicted on surveillance video. Wonder what these guys needed five skateboards for? Pool party?

The Agenda Show will be dropping in on Las Vegas in August 2013 as part of a strategic alliance called Modern Assembly. Agenda will join AccessoriesTheShow, Capsule, Liberty, MRket, and Stitch at the Venetian and Sands Expo.
In a move that dispels the myths and competitive nature between the fashion tradeshows of yesteryear, the shows that comprise Modern Assembly will provide an ideal mix of resources in the right environments, with the utmost of convenience by co-locating and cross-marketing. Starting this February, Modern Assembly will present a strategic, unified and global approach to promoting Las Vegas as a major fashion destination, to elevate the experience for all participants.
Agenda’s Aaron Levant believes this union of smaller shows is the perfect way to march into the Las Vegas market.
“The Agenda Show thrives on deeply established exhibitor and retailer relationships in the streetwear, lifestyle, and action sports industries and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of this new union of shows,” says Aaron Levant, founder of Agenda. “Modern Assembly will solve the increasing feelings of discontent surrounding the Las Vegas market, by offering a familiar and trusted trade show environment which houses four remarkable shows under one roof.”
We’re looking forward to the Las Vegas August heat already. Pool parties anyone? For the official word, follow the jump. Continue reading ‘Agenda Jumps Las Vegas With Modern Assembly’

Shawn Clark, the 39-year-old owner of Malden, Massachusetts’ Patriot Skateboards has died from gunshot wounds after a shooting in his retail store on Tuesday, January 29, 2013, according to a story on Boston.com.
Police responding to a call of shots fired at around 12:45 p.m. found Clark with gunshot wounds. He was taken to Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. . . Malden police and state police attached to the district attorney’s office are investigating the circumstances.
According to the manager of a nearby convenience store, two men were seen “running down a side street” following the shooting. Our thoughts are with Clark’s family and friends.
We should have known when we boarded our flight to NYC just behind two penguins (in pet carriers, seriously) that it was going to be a cold, cold week in New York City. As the Agenda Show NYC opened their doors at 9 AM on January 23, 2013 the temperature on the street outside 82 Mercer St. was hovering in the mid teens and the entire city seemed to be bundled up like Arctic explorers on business trips. Inside the brick walled Agenda space, however, more than 120 street, skate, and even snow brands heated things right up. The free coffee didn’t hurt either.
Each year the Agenda NYC show becomes a more important gathering for street brands and East Coast action and style retailers, and no one was going to let the Manhattan deep freeze keep them off their Agenda game. Click the link for a full photo gallery and you’ll see what we mean.
This collaboration between Supra and Berlin sneaker emporium Solebox just might be the coolest Supra Skytop III yet. Why? It they glow in the dark. Yep. Those dull green glow that has fascinated us all since we were four years old.
The SOLEBOX Skytop III upper is outfitted with a plush grey suede upper and green accents. The highlight of the stylish mid top, however, is the translucent grey, glow-in-the-dark TPR cage, heel pull, and outsole, all of which glow a bright green at night. The shoe has a green microfiber tongue and padded lining, SOLEBOX branded sock liner and aglets. It rests on a comfortable, lightweight, white SUPRAFOAM midsole, and it comes with a custom screen printed lace bag with alternate green laces.

The SnowSports Industry of America released their fall SIA RetailTRAK numbers today (December 6, 2012) for the period August through October 2012 and it wasn’t good news.
The snow sports market declined 2%, but reached $616M in sales so far this season (August through October) despite significant disruptions in retail sales in the South and Northeast regions due to Hurricane Sandy, uncertainty in the face of the “fiscal cliff,” and lack of momentum from the snow-challenged 2011/2012 season.
And you thought last fall was bad for sales? We’ll just pray for a good Christmas. For the official word from SIA, follow the jump. Continue reading ‘The Snow Market’s Down Fall’
