World Industries has just dropped a new line of Plyagra decks that feature North American maple veneers with a carbon fiber inlay in the top layer to help the boards say stiffer and stronger for longer.
If you’re facing embarrassing performance anxiety the Plyagra just might be the right board for you. They apparently work for Andrew Cannon. Plyagra decks are currently available in fine independent skateboarding shops for $59.95, but we don’t know how long they’ll last.
Hard to believe it’s taken until 2013 for an action eyewear company to make sunglasses that don’t sink to the bottom of the ocean the second they get fumbled, but that’s exactly what Dragon’s new H20 line is all about.
“The Floatable sunglasses are super functional for me and my friends,” says Shane Dorian. “For people who spend essentially half their lives around the ocean surfing, fishing, boating, stand up paddling or anything else that’s active, knowing you won’t lose your favorite pair of shades if you drop them into the water is key.”
Yes, it is. With these glasses and his inflatable Billabong wetsuit Mr. Dorian is in danger of drifting right out into space. For the official word from Dragon follow the jump.
Portland, Oregon’s Timothy Copeman is a hardware repurposer, recycler and upcycler who give new life to old hammers with interesting materials and then sells them in his Etsy story Copeman’s Corner. Some of his coolest hammers feature handles made from old skateboard decks. Here’s what Copeman says about this one:
This handmade handle was created from White Oak and an up-cycled Anti Hero TNT Skateboard Deck then securely fitted to a vintage reclaimed claw hammer head. Go big or go home! . . . Entire hammer weighs approximately 1 lbs 9 oz and measures 13.5 inches long. . . This hammer was designed to be put in your tool box and used! All my hammers are guaranteed not to break with normal use for the first six months! See my shop policies for details.
How much would you have to drop for one of Timmy’s skateboard hammers? $40 to $45 a piece. Click the link for more details.

World Industries is announcing their new shoe partnership with the Keep A Breast Foundation in which the company will have shoes manufactured with the “I heart boobies” logo right there on the bottom of the shoe as Andrew Cannon is so thoughtfully modeling.
“We are excited to collaborate with The Keep A Breast Foundation, an organization that supports a cause that is very close to me and my family,” said Scott Chantos, President, World Industries and recently elected Keep A Breast Foundation Board Member. “My mother and aunt are both breast cancer survivors so I know how important early detection is. I love what Shaney jo and her team are doing at KAB and we wanted to create a product to promote awareness for the cause and contribute a portion of the proceeds to help fund programs that encourage a healthy lifestyle.”
The footwear line, which includes men’s and women’s models, will debut in select retail outlets in September 2013 for $50 a pair. For more details, follow the jump.
This new Stefan Janoski x Official collab the “All Mesh Camper” may be nice and cool for skateboarding, but just think how great that visor would work for late night poker games?
Official has paired with living skateboard legend and eclectic artist/fashion designer, Stefan Janoski to bring you one of the our most unique collections to date. This capsule collection was actively designed and developed by Stefan himself. He really pushed the envelope on our detailing (peep the ambient visor!) while still keeping solid the pillars of Official’s signature shapes and designs.
The Camper retails for $32.00 and is available along with the rest of Janoski’s designs in the Official online store.
