Outside The Bubble #2

Five weeks has passed since the first edition of this stupid feature but thanks for all of your contributions sent in to make this one a reality. What is this?! Rubbish I guess – a trashy round up what goes on outside of the skateboard scene that sometimes includes the skateboard scene and other people trying to make money out of the $kateboard scene, people with skateboards or other people making things that are like skateboards for people that don’t ride skateboards etc. – NSFW.

IN FUTURISTIC SKATEBOARD NEWS:

The movie ‘Back To The Future’ may have catapulted skateboarding back in the 80s but the reality that the hoverboard could actually come to fruition is now a talking point once again in certain nerdy circles. The people behind it are looking to raise $1m of your hard earned cash to research the possibilities of building a working hoverboard controlled by an i-Phone.

#hovereverydamnday? – No, that wouldn’t work as they would never actually wear out. Marketing fail.

ATV SKATEBOARD:

Seen the Scarpar yet? It’s an ‘electronic skateboard’ that can take on all terrain with a top speed of 32mph. This contraption was invented by Andrew Fern in 2006 after a whopping 15,000 hours of engineering went down. Quote of the Day: “Hammer it Daz and see what it can do”.

NIGHT RIDERS:

Here’s one for the hipsters. The ‘Staying Alive’ revival is about to kick into the skate scene and be bathed in light thanks to the Sunset Skateboard Company. These polycarbonate plastic numbers are actually powered by battery-free LED wheels and will alert people to beat you up wherever you may be rolling. Try one for instant black eyes in your local highstreet post 10pm.

IN SKATE FASHION NEWS:

The Lovenskate dudes found themselves having high tea in Vogue of all places this week. Angela Scanlon here models a wonderful Louis Vuitton number alongside a Drink Tea, Get Rad classic. Lucy Adams is said to now be wearing this outfit at skateparks in the South East. Look out for her.

This woman was spotted pinching one off in another fashion outfit shoot. Is that deck a bog roll holder?

YACHT CLUB LAUNCH PARTY.

Talking of outfits, the biggest social network kick-in from skaters this week has to be from the launch party of Stevie Williams’ new snazzy clothing company Asphalt Yacht Club. This video goes lengths.

Some people are fuming on this ting:

IN HOLLYWOOD ACTOR NEWS:

House MD Hugh Laurie needs to learn that the word grind actually means what it says.

SUPRA GIRAFFE’S LAUNCH.

Supra make bad-ass skate shoes but could these new Giraffe Chimera’s as plugged by Lil Wayne be the future D3? Badly in need of a pair of these bad boy’s. Pure piss-takers.

IN VIDEO TRAILER NEWS:

Like Meatballs?

IN NAKED NEWS:

Australians just don’t give a monkeys do they?

AND FINALLY…:

Just when you think you have seen it all there’s always someone lurking out there ready to change the game. This week, the Metro have seen fit to run an article based on mice learning how to skate in Australia. Owner Shane Willmott built a mouse-sized skatepark and made them ollie through a ring of fire. ‘I’m 42 but I’m still 14 in my mind’, he says before mentioning that he “decided to teach them to skate because it was too cold in winter to take them to the beach.”
