Spritzparty Skateboards…


AM Fremantle has come up with some amazing skateboard designs in the past, but the “Spritz Party” collection is one of the most recent.  AM Fremantle specializes in screen printed skateboards fresh out of Vicenza, Italy that double as works of art.  We’ll definitely have more to show from them down the proverbial road as it were, but check out the ‘Spritz Party’ boards below for now.

Onewheel Self Balancing Electric Skateboard

The key to the simple balancing act — lean forward to go faster, lean back to stop or reverse — is the advanced gadgetry inside the Onewheel. Built-in sensors and key-component algorithms work in conjunction with the direct drive hub motor. It’s powered by a 48v Lithium Nano-phosphate battery, and charging happens in as little as 20 minutes. While it doesn’t reach speeds of 88 mph, we think the 12 mph is still faster than walking.

World’s First 3D Printed Twin Tip Skateboard


Dutch artist Sam Abbott is the designer of the first fully-functioning skateboard that has been built and modeled using a 3D printer. After winning a competition by 3DprintUK, co-hosted by CGtrader, abbott was chosen to have his concept for a twin tip skateboard printed by the company on a 3D printer. Because the design of the object is slightly longer than the available build tray, the deck is adapted and assembled in pieces — cut into 3 separate sections and joined together with connector pins to ensure optimal accuracy and strength. The surface of the printed board is patterned, and traditional grip tape and trucks are added design features, augmenting the characteristics of a traditional skateboard with a technological twist.

Ryan Sheckler Skateboard Street Flashback.

Bronze medalist Ryan Sheckler takes us back to his skateboard street course preview from X Games 17.  Shot 100% on the new ‘HD HERO’ from GoPro.

Leeside Skateboard Mayhem.

Awesome skateboarding videos are all over the place, but can still be relatively hard to pin point.  The Zenga Bros video from Halloween 2011 is one I’m glad I caught wind of though.  From the crazy costumes, to fireworks randomly blasting off, to just the location the skaters chose to shoot, this Skate flick is a serious eye catcher.

Céline Decks.

Jayne of Stop It Right Now has made the ultimate DIY. She’s customized a slew of skateboard decks in her (as well as everyone else’s) favorite Céline prints. WTF. Stop. It. Right. Now. Right? These limited edition babies will be gone in a hot second, so email Jayne now if you want one.

Debacle: The Nike Skateborad Movie.

Any video that runs for damn near a half hour tends to lose my attention after the first 30 seconds, but the Nike skate movie ‘Debacle’ managed to break that bad habit of mine.  (Before I get 47 perturbed emails about how old this flick is, let me just say I’m well aware of that.)  Regardless of its age, the video has quite a shocking start, and if you’re a skater, it keeps your attention the entire way through.  Check out Justin Brock, Daryl Angel, David Clark, Grant Taylor, Shane O’Neill, and Theotis Beasley tearing the streets up in a ridiculous manner.  And no matter how much of this whopping 23 minutes you watch, you’ll be entertained the entire time.
