We’re Open During COVID!

Hi Everyone,

We hope everyone is safe.  We have a few notes regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine.

Pandemic Skateboarding with Whatever Skateboards

We Are Open

We are still filling custom skateboard and custom longboard orders during quarantine. We are practicing safe social distancing and sanitary routines with lots of handwashing, face covers, and everything else we can do to keep safe while shipping orders. And, we are not seeing any customers in person. This way, we’re able to continue providing awesome custom decks to the world, and not give in to this virus! Skate or die! (Note: choose skate.)

Skateboarding During the Pandemic

If you do skate during the pandemic quarantine, please remember to cover your face appropriately, and stay 10 feet away from other skaters or joggers in case they aren’t doing the same, and you should be good.  One up side of the quarantine is that the streets are pretty empty, so for skaters there’s a lot less traffic than usual, so that’s a nice little silver lining for the time being.

Safe Delivery Tips

When your skateboard package(s) arrive, remember to treat them with the same rules you would an Amazon package or similar.  When the delivery man arrives, wear a mask to greet him if you need to sign for it, or let him drop it off and walk away before opening the door if not.  Leave the package in the sun for a little while if it’s safe to do so (an hour or two, flip it over one time) right outside your door where you can keep an eye on it where it can stay in the sun.  The sun and wind for an hour is a great way to reduce chance of any germs for starters.  If it’s not convenient or safe to do so, then just bring your package inside and try to set it down near the door, and 6+ ft away from where anyone will be sitting or standing.  Then, remove the packaging and recycle or throw away the packaging outside as appropriate, then wash your hands thoroughly.  That’s the cautious way to accept any delivery, skateboard or not.  Most of all, don’t touch your face after touching any delivery boxes until after you wash your hands.

Production Times

Our production times remain mostly normal, though please allow an extra few days for the delivery companies that may have longer delays.  As with all deliveries right now, some understaffed locations may need longer than normal to drop off the package, but otherwise if you’ve been receiving packages on time from UPS you should be OK to expect it on time.

Stay Safe and Skate On!

Stay safe out there and keep the creativity flowing!

Concrete Wave Magazine to Feature Posts from Unsponsored Skaters with Free New Skate Clip Submissions Page

GET FEATURED ON CW FOR FREE!  This is pretty cool for anyone out there stacking clips that wants more exposure, or anyone who likes to create skateboarding and longboarding content.

Concrete Wave Mag Featuring Skate Clip and Article Submissions from the Public

Concrete Wave Magazine has recently announced in an article on their site that they will feature skate clips from unsponsored skaters if anyone wants to submit their skate clips thru a new page they just released called their Clip Submit page.

Unsponsored Skaters Welcome

Don’t worry Sponsored skaters, they are not excluding Sponsored skaters from submitting, but they did make it clear they are opening up to unsponsored skater submissions (as much, if not more-so than the usual pro level stuff you see on most mags).  This has always been the Concrete Wave vibe though, always in touch with skaters of all levels, and all forms, and never really focusing in on just one style or level of the skate world, something that we’ve always liked about the mag.

Instagram, YouTube, or Blog

You can submit Instagram posts, YouTube Videos, or Articles, and they’ll review and re-post them on IG or feature them on their website!  I’m sure they can’t feature every single clip that’s submitted, but then again, who knows!

Free Features  = Free Exposure / Followers

It’s worth a shot for any up and coming skaters that want to get some exposure, get some new followers, and boost their skate game thru Concrete Wave, a long standing skateboard magazine who we’ve partnered with in the past and can verify is made by skaters, for skaters, and has been for a long time (15-20 years, something like that).

Submit your posts to be re-posted / featured here:

If you’ve got stacks on stacks of clips, head over to CW and submit your best ones!

OH. MY. GAWD. Nyjah’s Nike SB Part (‘Til Death) is FIRE

Seriously so many face melting rails in Nyjah latest Nike SB part it’s unreal. He also gets smoked super hard – no spoilers – but oof!! Maybe nobody is surprised, since it’s Nyjah Huston, and we already know he’s insanely talented. But this is next level skateboarding no matter how you look at it, and he’s clearly pushing himself to the limits to take it up a notch. What’s your fav clip in this part?

10 Tricks Your Dad Can Do by Michael Brooke of Concrete Wave Magazine

We love videos like this. With this video even beginners can pick up a new trick or two to go have some fun without it being too difficult or frustrating or dangerous. Nailing a new trick in an hour or two is the best feeling. Sometimes, it’s a trick you’ll continue to do for the rest of your life and get a lot of props for! But, not every trick has to have air-time and rails whether it’s skateboarding OR longboarding or otherwise! The original roots of skateboard tricks were flatland and surf style tricks more like what we consider longboard freestyle and today, not what most people consider “tricks” on a skateboard, but these tricks paved the way for steez and style to be forefront in what soon blossomed from a surfer hobby sport to a world-wide phenomenon capturing the hearts and minds of the youth like something nobody had expected before, with pioneers like Jay Adams and the Dogtown Z Boys are still famous to this day for. Along these lines, Michael Brooke of Concrete Wave Magazine demonstrates as he shows off 10 of his favorite tricks in a video he calls:

Nice job Michael!
