No Rain = Fresh Kicks

Mother nature finally brings us some sun... 
and some fresh sneakers from the one and only Circa Footwear...
Ryan Gallant's shoe in Black / White / Denim is clean, simple, and has excellent board-feel.
 The "Lamb" shoe is perfect for skating straight to the beach.
 The ever-popular "Tre High" returns with this fresh colorway.
 The new "Widow" shoe in a dark forest green colorway was designed by the 
one and only Peter Ramondetta so you know it's gonna be a smart choice...

RIP Eric Swenson

August 4th, 1947 - June 20th, 2011

IDEAS COME A DIME A DOZEN. People talk, but seldom act. Eric Swenson got things done. Never one to clamor for the spotlight, he preferred the hard work, orchestrating the show from behind the scenes. It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of a dear friend and one of our founders. His mark on skateboarding is extraordinary. Without him there would be no Thrasher Magazine, Independent trucks, or Spitfire wheels, to name a few. He leaves behind his wife Linda and sister Rebekah, along with a tremendous number of admirers.

Krux Kickflip Challenge Results

Rain could not stop this event as we moved it to the Encounter indoor skatepark. We had a huge turnout of kids that were hungry to get weak in the knees with kickflips. The 2011 winner of the Krux Kickflip Challenge, going home with a set of Krux trucks, Krux hat, and Krux shirt is Steve "the pistol" Pestalozzi with 44 consecutive kickflips! Second place went to Caleb Gibson with 30 and in 3rd was Carter Jr with 14! Winner of the "60 seconds of 360 flips" was also Steve "the pistol" Pestalozzi with 15, 2nd was Shane Pehrson with 14, and a close 3rd was Frank "petey" Williams with 13! Winner of the "biggest wedge gap ollie" went to Taylor Verva at 13ft.
Last but certainly not least the winner for donating the most food goes to Kyle Walczak with a total count of 60 items! Thanks a bunch to Kyle and everyone else who donated items to give to the CHUM center.
The list of high fives goes on and on but we want to shout out to Bill at MoFunna Skates for hosting the "bangers for bucks" and Jay at the Encounter for opening the indoor park to let the kids skate on this rainy day. Pics will be circulating soon so stay tuned.

Happy Go Skateboarding Day!

Its finally here! However we are moving the event to the Encounter due to the crappy weather. See you there!Don't forget about the Transworld video! We will be playing it all day at the shop so stop in and check it out.

Excuses, excuses...

"I got pulled over doing 90 in a 50..."
"I'm running a temp of 104 and am puking my brains out..."
"My grandmother died..."
"I'm hungover... again..."

All valid excuses to get out of whatever you were supposed to do on JUNE 21st 
because it's GO SKATEBOARDING DAY! The one day out of the year where work, school, 
chores, errands get the boot and skateboarding takes over the world... 
This year, we're starting the madness at Midtown Skatepark with several contests throughout
the afternoon. Need a break from the skating? Head down from Midtown to the shop where the new Transworld video "Not Another Transworld Video" will be premiering in-store all day.
After the festivities at Midtown,
it'll be a free-for-all ride throughout Duluth (ride at your own risk)...
We don't care where you end up skating... 
Full contest info and other details below...
For now, get hyped on the trailer of what promises to be the best Transworld video to date...

Get in with the Mafia...

Fresh tee's, hoods, and hats from Sk8 Mafia...

Booze Cruz Success!

Another chapter in the Damage Booze Cruz history book went down this weekend.  
Plenty of pubs, pulltabs, police, slams, and miles of pushing with some fun folks. 
Thanks for everyone who came out and got their Cruz on through this fine city of Duluth. 
Skateboarding kicks ass!
