Zumiez Supra Stash At Woodward West

by The Editors on December 7, 2015

Zumiez dropped this Supra “branded experience” on 50 lucky mall shoppers. Forty-eight hours at Woodward West with these cats wouldn’t be such a bad deal, huh? That’s just one of the ways that Zumiez gives back, and we’d take it for sure.



Oakley Latches On To Skateboarders

by The Editors on December 1, 2015


It’s been decades since Oakley has designed a pair of sunglasses that a skateboarder would wear. Their Frogskins were about it and they were released in 1985. Now, thanks to some input from skateboarders Eric Koston, Sean Malto, Curran Caples and skate photog Atiba Jefferson Oakley has a pretty smooth set of shades that not only look good, but come with some needed function for anyone who has ever clipped their glasses over the neck of their T-shirt. They’re called the Oakley Latch.

“It was just amazing to team up with three skate legends and see this frame come to life,” said Jefferson. “We collaborated with the Oakley design team on all elements – from frame shape to logo placement – to develop a truly signature product that I know we’re all really proud of.”

Oakley_LATCH_how-toThe “latch” is located behind the hinge on each side of the glasses and allows the glasses to be locked on to the neck of a T-shirt. We had a little trouble latching the shades to the shirt (it often took two hands), but once the latch is attached our days of spilling our sunglasses onto the street were over.

The Latch retails starting at $130 and can be purchased online at Oakley. For the official word from Oakley, follow the jump.

Tony Hawk Rides A Horizontal Loop

by The Editors on November 19, 2015

There’s no doubt that the structure Tony Hawk built on his ramp is a mind (and body) twister. But is it a horizontal loop, or just a bowl with a ridable drain? You be the judge.


Woman Waves Knife At Cowtown Skate Shop

by The Editors on November 19, 2015


After a Cowtown Skateboards shop manager asked a disruptive woman to leave their Tempe, Arizona location on November 14, 2015 she returned with a knife and began waving it the manager, according to a  story in the State Press.

Although the woman left the store, she returned to stand in front of the business only to continue being loud and was told to leave once again, police reported. . . The woman presented a knife in a stabbing gesture with the sharp edge pointed toward the manager, according to the report. The manager believed he would be stabbed by the woman and held a skateboard in front of himself for defense, police reported.

Luckily, no one was hurt and the woman was booked into the Tempe City Jail on “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct” charges.
