We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. We love Polerstuff. This company is run by good people with a keen eye for design. Poler has filled a niche, and they’ve done it with class. Benji Wagner breaks down where they’ve been and where they’re going. I’m still waiting to see how the surf team will progress…..get on that shit boys. Go support these guys and get some stuff.

I’m typically very partial to goofy footers. Almost to a point of discriminatory measure. That being said, there’s a ton of guys out there that rip with their left foot forward. On the other side of that coin…I always drop my back knee….so I’m super biased TOWARD this technique. Yeah it sounds a bit conflicted, but who cares. Trevor Gordon is one of my favorites for obvious reasons. I think in surfing more than any other sideways standing pursuit, style is poached and even faked. Fake style is the worst style. Trevor doesn’t do that….Trevor has sick style. Go buy some of his art work (as soon as his site is back up and running) and watch the kid rip.
You guys need to check out Aaron’s full lecture at MCAD from earlier this year. All hail Draplin.
Stereo Skateboards speaks to me….for a number of reasons. I have always been surrounded by creative people in my life, and as a result I have a heavy appreciation for Art and Design. I thank my mother for that mostly. Chris Pastras always just seemed like one of the kids I would have surrounded myself with. Chris has an incredibly creative mind, and he expresses that in his skating as well as his artwork. Stereo’s marketing, design focus, and overall attitude balance art and commerce far better than any other product involved in skateboarding. Recently Chris and Jason have had local Utah artist Colt Bowden design their Retro Americana Classics Division. Colt is an excellent skater as well as an accomplished and detailed artist. I’m very stoked for Colt, and I’m so glad to see these two collaborating. It just makes sense. Take a look at Chris’ Hand in Hand, check out Colt’s site, buy some of his work, and then go support Stereo Sound Agency.

I know for many of you this is kind of old news, but I had to put up a Haroshi post. The guy is an absolute inspiration, and he is the embodiment of DIY. …oh and I must have the new Haroshi-Huf Pro-models…clear cup soles?…so rad. Now stop reading this, and check out his Aberrican Me.

I don’t have part numbers or descriptions on the stickers, but it feels like Aaron’s old man is looking over us now…SHITCHYAH.
Yes I’m a dork…
Man I wish he would come here to speak….
I don’t care what you do in life, this will apply. The guys at Create The Map threw this up last month. Aaron Draplin is an American Hero.
I’m always happy to see good people succeed, and the minds behind Brixton are the greatest. Their Fall Line is released, so go buy some shit, and check the new clip here.
