Roger Skateboards are firing on all cylinders this week with this brand new C.U.R.B edit filmed in Texas that will surely make you want to just leave the house and skate. Everyone loves skating curbs. If you are the exception, then we are sorry that you are missing out. Go, get, some, of, this.
Death Skateboards have released a one-off guest board this week for skate legend Ben Schroeder. Ben was involved in a head on collision with a car back in August 2011. He was hillbombing at 40mph and a car hit him at mach 10 and then ran over him. The car stopped with the tyre on top of his left leg resulting in his shin bone (tibia) being broken in two.
Speaking to Nick Zorlac last night he said: “I thought it would be a good time to do a Ben Schroeder guest board on Death. One because he one of skateboarding’s all time greats, and two because he needs some help right now. These decks just landed, are a limited edition and have turned out great. Graphic by Jason Davey.”
