Uprize uproar

It’s happened in the past and it has happened again: Two companies fly under the same banner but there can only be one.

Matt Rodriguez and Carlos Young recently encountered problems with their skate company, Uprize Skateboards, when they visited Chicago and came upon an already established skateshop called Uprise. Obviously the similarity was too close to call, and Uprize skateboards has now been re-named Frontline skateboards.

Catch up with Carlos and Matt over at the 48 Blocks , and keep a look out for the Uprise Skateshop video, Chicago’s Finest Vol.2 featuring none other than one time Chicago resident Josh Kalis.

Let this be a warning kids! Remember what happened to Menace, no All City, no City Stars…
