Pro Skateboarder Allysha Le Featured In Kashi Go Commercial.

Thursday, May 23, 2019





Nice to see pro skater Allysha Le featured in this new Kashi GO commercial. We also spy a cameo of our "It's Not About Pretty" book designer, Elise Crigar, in there too!

Times are a changing and we have to thank companies like Kashi GO for having the main skater be female - did you notice that there is a guy in this commercial as well?  Role reversal - we like it!!

Make sure you grab a copy of RED BULLETIN Magazine this month because it's the "Skate Issue" and Leticia Bufoni, sporting some seriously rad, bright pink hair, graces the cover!  Great interview - Leticia shares her views on everything from avocado toast to the Olympics. Plus there are loads of great photos of Leticia inside as well.

15-year-old Brighton Zeuner, is also featured in this issue as well, and shares a bit about how skateboarding is not all she is about. Plus her parents weigh in on how her skateboarding career got started and how she copes with the stress that comes along with being so young and a top skater on tour. Nice to read an in-depth article like this one about Brighton.

OG Skater Judi Oyama Featured In ESPN Magazine!

Monday, May 20, 2019

Image of Judi Oyama captured by David Burnett  - ESPN Magazine


We are super stoked to see our rad OG skater friend, Judi Oyama, featured in a 2-page spread in ESPN Magzine this week! World-renowned photographer, David Burnett, did a series of portraits featuring senior athletes (more on espn.com) but this was the only photo of the series featured in the magazine!

Judi is 59 years young and has been skating since the 70's - she still races slalom competitively and skates bowls. She is also the owner of Badass Skatemom apparel - which is appropriate on many levels! 

Burnett's "Fourth Quarter" images are currently on display in Sarasota, Florida at the Ringling Museum.
