2nd Annual Skate Shop Day

Friday, February 19th is the second annual "Skate Shop Day". A day dedicated to supporting your local skate shop. February is historically one of the slowest months for shops, so the folks who founded Skate Shop Day wanted to give people a reason to swing through their local shop and show support for these stores that are the cornerstones of local skate scenes around the world. Just as "Go Skateboarding Day" is meant to get skaters outside, "Skate Shop Day" is designed to get skaters into the shop. Our pals at REAL Skateboards and Spitfire Wheels whipped up these limited edition decks and wheels to celebrate the occasion which are available exclusively in-store starting on Friday, February 19th. Skate them or hang ‘em on the wall. There’s only 50 decks available in 3 different sizes. FREE VANS x "Skate Shop Day" tees will be given out to anyone who purchases a set of limited edition Spitfire wheels and a Real X "Skate Shop Day" deck (while supplies last). So Much Love to all the locals who support their local skate shops here in Duluth and around the world.

Polar Skateboards

Polar skate decks have been slipping and sliding off the racks lately. Is this due to the Polar Vortex we're experiencing right now? I don't know. Grab a new ride and head to your local indoor park in the meantime.

Mark Wilson Does Duluth

Last season, shop team rider Mark Wilson got the call to film a video part for the prestigious X-Games Real Snow contest. Early snowfall brought Mark and the crew to Duluth to get things started. Here's a look into what it takes to film a video part. Behind every make there are (usually) some slams. Featuring riding by Mark Wilson and Jonas Harris.
