Glue Skateboards, Gucci + More!

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

 

 

 

Leo Baker and Cher Strauberry are everywhere right now!  Gucci just launched Gucci Grip and Leo and Cher are the new faces of Gucci’s skate-inspired watch advertising. Named for the way feet stick to the board, the Gucci Grip was introduced last year as an ode to 1970s skate culture via a campaign shot by Ari Marcopoulos. It's all pretty damn cool.


 

And in case you missed the premiere of SMUT from the newly formed Glue Skateboards - we have it here. 

Leo Baker, Stephen Ostrowski and Cher Strauberry are changing the (male dominated) landscape of skateboarding and making sure the LGBTQ community is well represented.

The new Skate Bud Book by Zach Moldof 


We are so excited about this new book SKATE BUD from Zach Moldof at Stoke Much Magazine.

The new pocket size book goes over everything from skate etiquette at the skatepark and street spots, to what to do (and not to do) when you run into a pro at your fave park. The book also has diagrams and explanations for tricks, so you never get mixed up again on what's what. It goes over the different disciplines in skateboarding - from mega ramps, to freestyle and those who have paved the way are mentioned as well.

 And here's a small spoiler, Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word founder, Cindy Whitehead, wrote the forward. 👍 and there are contributions from others we love, Daniel Fedkenheuer and Yash Presswalla

The book is 202 Page and the 4x7” size means it's easy to put in a back pocket or your backpack. And at $15 it doesn't break the bank - it also makes for a great stocking stuffer!

 It is also a really great companion to the SKATE BUD app that you need to download immediately!  It comes up with a map showing you where the skateparks are located, and once you click on that icon you'll get the name of the park, the address, and see detailed photos. You can also save the parks you like into "favorites" for easy access later. We love that each location on the app has symbols that make key info clear: is there parking or lights? Is the park a plaza, transition or hybrid?

Leticia Bufoni Rock Climbing?!

 

 FLOW STATE Presented by Firestone Walker Brewing Co. 


It is so rad to see Leticia go way out of her comfort zone and try something new.

In this episode of Flow State, Dylan takes Leticia Bufoni rock climbing for her first time at Stoney Point. Leticia is afraid of heights and he asks her to boulder a 20-30ft project without a rope! 

My heart was pounding when she got stuck near the top!

Leticia is a professional street skateboarder and five-time X Games Gold medalist currently training for the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. 

What is Flow State? An optimal state of consciousness where we feel and perform our best while being completely immersed in an activity. It’s the feeling i live for and I find it most when i’m outdoors — whether in an activity or even a meaningful conversation. 

 In this series, Dylan take athletes and celebrities on adventures in and around Los Angeles, CA. By pushing them outside their comfort zone, he hope to get to know more about his guests, their drives and passions, and ultimately, more about himself.

 Along the way, the show will pull back the curtain on Los Angeles, revealing its hidden outdoor gems and communities.

 

Vans Releases a Fabiana Delfino Collection! WOW!

Wednesday, November 11, 2020



 

Costa Mesa, CALIF. (Nov. 11, 2020) – Vans team rider Fabiana Delfino’s smooth style and powerful approach is redefining skateboarding from the ground up. The Florida native’s flowy style and roots have been applied to a new Vans head-to-toe collection, led by the Sk8-Hi Pro in cool blue featuring her signature palm tree graphic.

The Fabiana Delfino Sk8-Hi Pro offers stellar performance features that Vans Pro Classics have become known for, including Ollie Guard for added durability – a first for the silhouette. DURACAP reinforced underlays in high-wear areas have also been added to prolong the life of the shoe.     

Paying tribute to the Sunshine State, Fabiana incorporated her signature palm tree insignia paired with a cool blue colorway into the Sk8-Hi Pro and apparel collection. Custom artwork also appears on the heel counter with her namesake emblazoned across the tongue label. A cool blue Sidestripe over a natural corduroy upper rounds out her Floridian-inspired design.

  Fabiana’s shoe is supported by a head-to-toe collection of apparel and accessories, including a body-skimming stripe polo with contrast ribbing at the neck and sleeve cuffs and Fabiana logo embroidery on the chest. Pair it with the Fabiana cord backpack and Fabiana cord hat in oil blue, both with embroidered logos on the front and back. A Fabiana boxy tee, long sleeve boyfriend tee and boyfriend fleece crew, and crew sock finish off the look, complete with the oil blue/black colorway and custom art.

 

The Vans Fabiana Delfino Collection is available now at Vans retailers and Vans.com/skate.
