Mark Wilson Visitors Ender

Shop rider Mark Wilson has had a pretty great year. To start it off he scored last part in the latest Videograss flick "Visitors" and then turned pro for K2 over the summer. Here's Spencer Schubert and Mark's footage from the video...feel free to replay it a few times.


 This boot is made for the entire mountain. The LASHED blends the perfect fit and flex with performance and comfort. The independent eyestay wraps your forefoot and the articulated cuff lets you flex with ease. Support comes from the performance backstay and the new team fit liner will give you a comfortable ride all season long. The LASHED is the number one selling boot world wide for a reason.

Rome Buckshot

The Buckshot from Rome is the go-to board for those who lap the park season after season. The positive camber freestyle flex in this board makes pressing and locking into rails easier than ever paired with Bamboo Single Barrel Hot Rods for maximum pop. Rebound Sidewalls and Basalt Impact Plates help your feet out on those rough landings. You can hit every feature in the park on the Buckshot!

On Saturday we held a kickflip challenge with our friends from ELEMENT. Ten skaters raced against the clock to see how many kickflips they could land in 60 seconds. Carter Nguyen came out on top landing an impressive 29 kickflips! That's almost one kickflip every two seconds!
 The guys at ELEMENT got everyone pizza and hooked us up with some awesome prizes for our raffle which included the grand prize of an Element flatbar. Stephen Pestalozzi ended up being the lucky winner. Can we borrow that thing sometime Pistol?
 Thanks to everyone who came out and made our kickflip challenge a success and a huge thanks to ELEMENT for making this happen AND making us the limited DAMAGE X ELEMENT 25th anniversary decks.

Union Falcor

The Falcor from Union is Travis Rice's signature binding so naturally it's built to perform at the highest level. The Stage 6 Base is developed using "Microfused Injection" which adds crucial strength around the disk plate. The Falcor's highbacks are made of Forged Carbon and glass injected nylon which adds power but still give you the flexibility to ride how you want. Exoframe/Air ankle straps provide a comfortable fit and the magnesium ratchets are 4x lighter and half the weight of aluminum. Union nailed it with this one.


JP Walker has been doing this for awhile... It only makes sense that he's figured out what he wants in a boot. This Light from THIRTY-TWO has everything "The Don" needs. Designed with an articulated cuff and 3D molded tongue this boot is both soft and forgiving. The integrated internal lacing system combined with the "Grip and Rip" Heel Hold will keep your heel locked while maintaining the soft flex you want. The new molded footbed will prevent foot slippage and the Evolution Foam Outsole will soften the heaviest of landings. Oh and did we mention that this boot is only 200 bucks...?

We recently partnered with REAL to create our "Home Is Where The Heart Is" collection featuring skateboards, grip, tees and stickers. When asked what the phrase means to him, Damage boss Ben said this: "Skateboarding is where it all started for me. It's been my life and to have a shop that revolves around something you love to do is really something special." Bottom line is that we do what we do because we truly enjoy it and it wouldn't be possible without the support of our local scene here in Duluth and of course, skateboarding. 

The graphic has a map of the neighborhood with Damage located right under the heart.
Boards come in sizes 8.06, 8.25, 8.38 and 8.5
Grip it and rip it!
You know what to do with these.

Looking for a binding that's awesome for BOTH urban riding and lap after lap in the park? Well you just found it. The "Contact" from UNION is built for riders looking for that surfy "loose trucks" feel when they ride. The base is designed with minimal binding-to-board contact points for less interference with the natural flex pattern of your board. While the ASYM S2 highback is sturdy and tweaked toward the outside for seamless boot interference. The CONTACT is perfect for urban and freestyle riding.


NIKE SB released this Danny Supa shoe as a dunk low in March of 2002. It was one of the original four NIKE SB shoes. Supa wanted something to represent his hometown of New York City, so naturally he went with a white, orange and blue all-leather dunk paying homage to some of the city's biggest sports teams. This limited re-release will be available Saturday October 7th.
