The Gonz has unleashed a new rocket fueled Zip Zinger on Krooked today. Enjoy the ride and check out the brand new Spring 2013 catalogue. Those Misfits inspired decks (scroll down page) will surely be the envy of the world!
Take 2 mins out of your day to read a wonderful tribute from Focus skate shop last night:
“Feb 9th 2011 saw one of the greatest losses to the UK Skateboarding Community, with the passing of Steven “Bingo” Binks. We as skateboarders lost one of our true Greats! Bingo was a true UK Legend and was friends with so many companies and shops all over the country.
One such strong tie was with Deluxe Distribution and particularly Real Skateboards. Real have honoured Bingo with these limited Action Realised “Bingo” Boards, under their Action Realised scheme giving back to the world through positive actions. With the proceeds of the board sales going to The British Heart Foundation we are giving back to the people that need it through Skateboarding.”
Props to Jim and all at Real for doing this, it’s a wonderful tribute. Look out for these soon in your local SOS and support the cause.
It’s hard to gage what’s Real and what’s not in these fast yet utter disposable times we live in. Misconception is humanity’s biggest downfall, much like the young aspiring gangster going the extra mile to hurt others for acceptance and rank status, so too does youth culture engage in drug and alcohol use to be seen as accepted and cool. Toby Morse (a.k.a. Toby 1), frontman of the hard-core punk band H20, devoted husband and loving father is living proof that a Positive Mental Attitude can get you much further in life than substances or weapons ever will!
Toby’s toured with numerous amazing bands, including Sum41, New Found Glory, Rancid, The Use, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Dropkick Murphys. Amongst a sponsorship from Nike and being head to toe covered in skin art, some find it hard to believe that this punk rocking legend has never touched alcohol or drugs in an industry where many find these attractions hard to escape!
Toby’s taken it upon himself to go out to schools across the U.S with the intention of educating the future leaders of our world by making them see that there’s more to life than being accepted, showing them that being a lifer is far more rewarding than being a knifer.
In aid of his quest for a better future, Real Skateboards produced a deck along with a few other skate goods which will see part of the proceeds go towards helping Toby reach more kids.
I’ve had the pleasure of riding this board for the past month, it’s a beautifully finished 8.25” bomber with standard concave, balanced nose and tail lift with a custom PMA graphic slapped on the bottom.
Not many people out there are interested in changing the world, but Toby is, don’t let his efforts go unnoticed, support Toby and help him help others by getting your mits on one of these boards. It’s Real board, so you know it’s gonna be a good ride, DLXSF is commited to skateboarding, so if you haven’t already done so, it’s time you give something back to those who give to you.
