Skateboarding + Star Wars = Deathstar Blues

by The Editors on June 10, 2014

derekkeenanatat5A new show titled Deathstar Blues at Denver, Colorado’s Blackbook Gallery features art (and commerce) from the intersection of skateboarding and Star Wars. Specifically Vans and Santa Cruz Skateboard’s new licensed Star Wars gear and some skateboarding art inspired by the seminal sci fi movies (like Derek Keenan’s AT-AT made entirely of upcycled skateboards on the right) .

Skateboarding and Star Wars are two of the biggest creative endeavors and commercial outlets of the past 40 years. Both gained immense popularity going into the 1980’s creating generations of devoted fans and successful consumer related brands that continue to thrive. As part of our June exhibit “Deathstar Blues” we will be hosting a “First Look” of new Star Wars merchandise from two iconic American brands – Vans Shoes and Santa Cruz Skateboards. We will also have an exhibit of Star Wars inspired artwork featuring Axel Geittmann, Sket-One, RYCA, Hari & Deepti and The Gropes.

The show runs until June 20, 2014. Blackbook is located at 555 Santa Fe Dr. in Denver, Colorado.

Wasatch Equality Could Use Your Help

by The Editors on June 6, 2014

Skullcandy founder Rick Alden explains the Alta situation quite succinctly in this edit. But here’s a little more:

Wasatch Equality began as a grassroots movement of individuals, families, and businesses committed to ending the anti-snowboarding policies at Alta Ski Area that have defined the resort since the early 1980’s. Long after the rest of the winter community has come to recognize snowboarding, it’s hard to believe there’s still an argument being made against the sport. . . By convincing Utah’s hold-out resorts to open their lifts to everyone, friends and families will be able to exercise their legal right to enjoy public land, regardless of how they choose to get downhill.

If you’d like to help Wasatch Equality in their efforts to open Alta Ski Resort to snowboarding, please click here to donate.

Supra Launches New Skateboarding Site

by The Editors on June 6, 2014

Supra Skateboarding Pr 3

When a company formerly known as a skateboard brand announces a “new website devoted solely to skateboarding,” it’s obvious that they’ve outgrown their neighborhood.

Are Supra’s fashion buyers so annoyed by skateboarding that the company had to bump all their skate content out into its own site? Here’s how Supra explains it:

With the amount of content being captured on a daily, we decided to dedicate a site for the skate team,” said Dennis Martin, skate marketing. “We will be updating this site with content focused around skateboarding, the team, and anything we find interesting. So hold on to your beer, it’s SupraSkateboarding.com.

More skateboarding content is always good, and more Supra is good, too. You’ll have to check it out yourself by clicking the link.

The waves at Cloudbreak did not live up to their reputation the week of the 2014 Fiji Pro, but that didn’t stop Garbriel Medina from ripping the place apart. Medina decimated Kolohe Andino in semi-final two and then marched right through a hard charging Nat Young to take the win (June 6, 2014) and the top position on the ASP world title rankings list.

“It’s great to be back at the top of the ratings, it’s still early but I’m feeling good,” said Gabriel Medina. “I’ve never surfed at Jeffreys Bay before but I’m going home after this to prepare and I’ll be working hard. Nat (Young) is a great guy and that was a good Final against him. I was so nervous inside those barrels, I couldn’t see anything, but when I came out I was stoked. Thanks to the Namotu guys who were supporting me. Thanks to everyone in Fiji, I just love it here especially with a win.”
