It’s moments like these that we turn to the Quiet Life, one of our most cherished brands, to remind ourselves that there is power in calmness. The […]

Leon Karssen Spring 16

Have you ever wondered what art and skateboarding have in common? It’s not some romanticized expression of a free-spirited individual or divine inspiration, although that’s what most people who practice either pastime would like you to believe. The thing both have in common is: doing them well is fucking hard.    Like, really hard. Pro […]

Palace Summer 2016 Drop

If all the scientists and environmental activists are right, then the world as we know it will be fucked by climate change. Which actually means that we’re getting fucked. After all, the planet’s not gonna dissolve or get vaporized or anything. It will stay right there in its path, rotating around the sun, totally indifferent […]

You can’t skate like Jovontae, but you can look like him.

Watching Jovontae Turner’s old footage, it’s tough not to go green with envy for his smooth, buttery style. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, Jovontae was one of the first to pop his tricks properly. It goes to show that the man was born for doing flip tricks, as evidenced by his innumerable […]

NIKE SB Bruin Hyperfeel

In 1972, when skateboarding was still in its infancy, Nike released a basketball sneaker called “Bruin.” Highly utilitarian in its design, the shoe was simple yet comfortable and provided basketball players with impact cushioning and a grippy outsole. Because of its simplistic shape, however, it was quickly used for purposes other than intended by skateboarders. […]

Öctagon: Perceptiön video and new drop

We sure are living in strange times. Skateboarding is increasingly leaning towards the mainstream, for better and for worse, and video technology has developed to a point where everyone and their mother can afford a 4K HD camera. The law of physics states that every action provokes a reaction, and while we’re no Einsteins, it’s […]

Liberté, égalité, fraternité: Magenta’s AIME epitomizes French aplomb

Vive la France! Home to the camembert, birthplace of modern democracy, synonym for effortless style: France really is the place to be. However, its capital frequently overshadows other cities in the country – Bordeaux, for example, which is far more popular for its exquisite supply of red wine than for being a city worth traveling […]

Get political with Fucking Awesome’s Spring 2016 drop

2015 was the year shit really hit the fan: ISIS on the rise, war in many corners of the world, the resultant Europe refugee crisis, terrorist attacks on free speech in Paris,  Donald Trump’s run for presidency. While we’re glad 2015 is over, its problems unfortunately carry over to 2016. Even if you’re not the […]

Klub Soft makes skateboarding unprofessional again

What a time to be alive! Skateboarding goes Olympia, professional skateboarders score sponsorship deals with candy manufacturers, and high fashion companies release skateboarding accessories for skaters with big wallets. Quo fucking vadis, skateboarding? In its rather short history, our beloved piece of wood has made quite some progress in terms of marketability. From time to […]

50 YEARS OF VANS

You know what they say: “Never change a running system.” While this seems like one of those obnoxious truisms like “Still waters run deep” or “The heart feels what the eyes cannot see” which seem to cover today’s Facebook feeds with a film of vomit-inducing pseudo-profundity, this statement sometimes proves to be true – just […]

GET A FREE MOB GRIP WITH YOUR PURCHASE OF A DECK

Before we get down to business, let’s do some pseudo-philosophy: applying grip tape to your board is an almost holy ritual in skateboarding. Sure, standing in front of the deck wall and choosing the right board is fun, but gripping your weapon of choice is any skater’s first initiation to skateboarding maturity. When you were […]

KERT HOLLYWOOD FOR BOИKERS

If you pictured Bonkers as a nuclear family, Kert would be the little rascal that pulls faces on family photos. Seriously, the guy has ants in his pants. Kert rips on any terrain, his trick inventory seems to grow bigger by the day and when he can’t go skating, he gets squirrelly. Also, Kert is […]

The new Palace decks

Whenever people unacquainted with skateboarding ask us, “Dear people from Bonkers, it really important what graphic you have on your board when you’re going to slide it off anyway?” We reply “Well of course it fucking matters what kind of graphic is printed on my board, are you stupid? Now get outta our way we […]

Aidans Mackey Tape

For a while now, it seems that the skateboarding culture has been divided into two camps: there’s the glamorously glittering world of Nyjah and his kin, inhabited by multimillionaire skateboarders and huge corporate deals. Then there’s the rebel camp: a growing number of indomitable skateboarders continue to resist the promises of full HD, energy drink […]

Quartersnacks – Enter the Snackman

Yo, what’s up with that weird-looking snow man on our new QS apparel? Oh. It’s not a snow man you say? You mean its round body parts actually aren’t snowballs stained with dog excrement because that’s just the only way I imagine snow can look like in a city as filthy and full of itself […]

POLAR SKATE CO – FALL / WINTER 15 COLLECTION

Alright kids, listen up. So you want logo decks? Well, better grab your mother’s purse while she’s not watching and head over to the next skateboard megastore to buy yourself some of that sweet, sweet Canadian maple branded so extensively the logo wouldn’t fit a horse’s ass. And while you’re there, get yourself some baby […]

PALACE X ADIDAS – WINTER 15 COLLECTION

It’s common sense that skateboarding and soccer go together like fire accelerant and your weird uncle’s BBQ party: no one has any clue what the hell they’re doing, but everyone is just too drunk to give a fuck when shit starts to explode in their faces. That’s at least what Palace must’ve thought when they […]

5 YEARS BOИKERS

Remember when we sold boards out of our dusty attic? Well, we do, and that was five years ago. That’s right: BOИKERS is turning 5 this year! So we went ahead and booked the exclusive Lost Loft, called two DJs (Manuel Schatz and Axl from Hardworksoftdrink), and put the beer on ice.   By loading […]
