Modernica is our favorite LA based furniture fabricators (in fact we sleep with them every night) and the fact that they’ve just done a collab deal with HUF is pretty cool. And even though the chair is green, Keith was nice enough to keep the pot leaf off the logo. . .
Don’t know if there was any information in this clip or not. . . wait, guess the news is that Street League Skateboarding has gone form ESPN 2 to Fox Sports 1. So that’s like moving up a number and dropping a little on the viewers. No worries. We like Fox Sports 1 better anyway. And so should you.
Want to ride it, too? Guess you’ll have to wait for the iOS version of the board in game form or something like that. All we can say is we hope these celebrities are getting paid. For more check out HUVrtech.com.

ActiveReplay, the action tracking company behind the Trace. Has reportedly landed $2.1 million in seed funding, according to a story on SoCalTech.com.
Details on the funding have not yet been announced. According to the filing, part of the funding came from Allegro Venture Partners, and also included a number of other investors. Active Replay’s CEO is Dr. Anatole Lokshin, a pioneer in developing GPS devices, who was the CTO of Magellan Navigation.
Sounds like perfect timing as they’ve been promising to release the Trace in March 2014. $2.1 million should get a few devices out into the wild, and it would be nice to see one of these “Strava for action sports” devices make it past the vaporware phase.
Bohnam Co. has launched their Spring 2014 website and is kicking it off with this brand new webmercial. It’s like skateboarding in the wilderness and stuff. Check it.

Hey all you aging punk rawkers! Vans just made your day with a re-release of four of their most iconic band collaborations. That’s right they will be re-issuing 150 pairs of each of their Circle Jerks, Motörhead II, Bad Brains, and Rise Against shoes March 12 through 15, 2014 as part of their SXSW Music Festival promotions.
Each re-issue has a total of 150 pairs with 50 being sold exclusively at the pop-up shop inside the Vans Village at noon during SXSW with an additional sale of 100 pairs on Vans.com the following day. The limited re-release of these iconic band shoes is only the second time Vans has allowed the reproduction of archived band collaborations. The first came from Vans’ Vulcanized Vinyl pop-up boutique that opened during the 2012 SXSW Music Festival.
If you’re into these collectable, follow the jump for all the details. With only 100 on Vans.com they will probably go fast. [click to continue…]
