Enjoi Skateboards have released their colourful Carnival Series decks this week designed by the talented London based illustrator Rob Mathieson who smashes it once again on the art front. Pro models from Jose Rojo, Zack Wallin, Louie Barletta, Cairo Foster, Wieger Van Wageningen, Nestor Judkins, Jimmy Carlin and Ben Raemers were formed from an amazing circus montage inspired by Barletta’s vision and nailed by Mathieson’s hard work in the studio.
This is also one of the best video adverts of the year. Look out for them in your local skate shop.
Etnies have announced today that they will be releasing a series of shoes in collaboration with Autism Speaks, a reknowned charity dedicated to raising awareness of autism and funding research. A portion of all proceeds of every Etnies X Autism Speaks Fader and RVM kid’s shoes sold will be donated to to Autism Speaks, with a minimum of $10,000 a year. This is in aid of developing invaluable resources and treatment for those diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. For a little perspective, that’s 1 in every 110 children.
Watch the video below for more information, and a nice ollie from Jose Rojo.
As with what seems to be expected with skate company edits in January, Etnies have raided their hard drives and tapes and compiled a montage of some of their favourite stuff from the year just gone.
But as it’s Etnies, they’ve gone a little extra to bringing us the very best of what a 12 month round up can be and have posted a nice blog post complete with photos and memories of the year taken and written by Sam McGuire.
