Summer 2013 Product Review


A lot of companies dropped a lot of new products ( hardgoods, softgoods, & shoes ) for the summer. So we got a chance to review some of the new summer products that hit your local shop. Now go hit your local skate shop to grab the fresh gear that these & other companies have dropped. You know you want to be be the cool dude on the streets.






Extreme Pie is a shop in Europe that sells nothing but the best products that the Industry has to give to us. For example these classic Converse Chuck Taylors that you can rock in the club or go shred the streets in class. You cann’t go wrong with Chuck Taylors now! EP got in some fresh treads from Independent and they are pretty fresh. I look at it like this with a pair of chucks and fresh Independent thread you won’t have a problem bringing a one night stand home

Wub Wheels is a new upcoming wheel company that is putting itself on the map. They been dropping clean wheels and fresh threads every season. This summer they are bringing you Roll Patrol Crusiers. They are good for those cruising around your city, strolling on the beach looking at them ladies, or you can just shred them at your favorite skatespot. Im using mine on the streets of Cali.

Yes its summertime, we will be traveling, hitting the beach and whatever else we like to do over the summer. This product is good for those that live on their smart phones 24/7. Mophie is a battery juice case for your smart phones and it gives you more time to see who de friend you on facebook. They hit the industry pretty strong and built a solid skateboard team to help promote Mophie. So, they dropped this juice pack pro for the ones that like to take their smart phones to the extreme ( well drunk nights and taking photos at the beach ). What this juice pack pro offers than any other case is “Viberation & Shock, Splash & Rain, Sand & Dust, Impact Drops, up to 150% extra battery and its military proof. Yes, the military gives you the stamp of approval.





Blue Tomato is another shop in Europe that carries everything that you can think of and they built a good solid skateboard team. This summer, they have dropped some new products like new line of BT boards, BT 52mm & 54mm wheels, and bunch of new BT apparel for you to rock on the streets.

Sometimes you got to be open minded to try out new things and give it a chance. I rode on Gullwing Street Shadows in the 90’s, then I switched it up to Venture and now I’m trying out Tork Trucks. I will say, I’m pretty stoke on them all ready. One of the things that sold me on them is a base plate that hold your freak’n bolts in place. Yes, no more loosing your bolts while shredding a spot. I will say when you buy Tork at your local skate shop, you will be pretty stoke on them.

Split clothing is by far the best clothing brand I have had the pleasure of wearing. Each design is a fresh new look with a light, soft, and breathable material that makes skating in the heat and other climates so much easier. No problems with the tees clinging to back you while you’ve been trying to skate a spot and are drenched with sweat. The materials are washer and dryer friendly, no shrinking after the first wash. Split isn’t like other brands where you wash them they come out looking like a barbie doll outfit. Long lasting materials and designs that are dope for any occassion. Keep an eye out Split Clothing has a lot of great things coming.

I saved the best for last, POW!! Skateboard is a new upcoming company out of NYC. They reminded me alot of SHUT Skateboard. POW!!! x EthicNY joined up together and dropped a sick ass collabo. A little history, the owner of POW!! is from Florida and that is why there is Palm trees in the graphics. If you do see palm trees in the city, They might have been imported from Florida. – T.Zam
