Tim Bessell surfboards began its artist series not long ago, beginning appropriately with a set of Warhol-inspired surfboards. Newest in the series, and conjured up during Dave White’s visit to the SoCal area, the Dave White and Tim Bessell collaboration will feature White’s artistic interpretation of a Great White shark and will appear on a 10-item [...]


The Andy Warhol Foundation moves from sunglasses with SUPER to another collab, this time with Tim Bressel, the custom surfboard brand out of San Diego. The union seems appropriate considering the film Warhol shot in 1968, San Diego Surf. Bressel have actually launched a series of the artist-inspired boards, starting with those inspired by Warhol’s famous Marilyn Monroe prints. [...]


British illustrator Jon Horner has laced out a series of Cliché skateboard decks, the theme of which applies Horner’s well known “Where’s Waldo” treatment to stars in skating culture. Pros like Joey Brezinski, JB Gillet and Sammy Winter hide cleverly in the graphics for the French decks, challenging you to find (and guess) all the possible characters. Boards measure in [...]

A New York union is complete. NYC-bred Hopps Skateboards is gracing the face of two photo-printed decks with the work of Ricky Powell, a man celebrated as one of New York’s top street photographers (and alleged Beastie Boys towel-thrower). Of course Powell is no novice to the world of collaborations, as you may recall his awesome Rakim, Public Enemy and [...]


I keep thinking that it would be good to get a board game night going again. Some of my favorite memories of high school (and sadly college) were hanging out with my fellow geeks and playing games deep into the night, drinking gallons of Mountain Dew when we were young, and Southern Comfort as we [...]


Chinese artist/rabblerouser/rebel/autocrat ass burr Ai Wei Wei  joined the likes of Terry Richardson, Damien Hirst, Banksy, Takashi Murakami, Dface, Dave Kinsey and our personal favorite, ROA, by releasing his own collection of skateboard decks with the illustrious Sk8room crew. A trio of different boards were designed by Weiwei, who matched three of his better known quotes [...]
