SK8 KAMP Burning Man Kickstarter 2015 – Black Rock City Skatepark!

SK8 KAMP Burning Man Kickstarter 2015 is live! Support a Skate Park on The Playa in Black Rock City!

SK8 KAMP 2015 Kickstarter is Live! Go go backers gooooooooooo! SK8 KAMP is a skater’s dream and without a doubt one of the best skateboarding Kickstarters of the year. Each year at Burning Man a crew of crazed skaters takes a working skatepark they built out to the desert for some seriously dustblasted sessions. The effort is enormous and the results are always impressive, even if you aren’t seeking your skating spirit animal out at the burn. Check the SK8 KAMP 2014 Montage highlight reel to see footie from last year’s skatepark along with some of the black & blue ribbon winners from the infamous SK8 KAMP bruise count.

Now You Have SK8 KAMP FOMO, There Is Only 1 Cure

Now that you’ve seen SK8 KAMP (and backed? you backed it right? GO BACK IT AND COME BACK) you have have a serious problem: you need everything about the SK8 KAMP 2015 Skatepark in your life. But since you already backed it you know there is a cure for your hardcore FOMO and that is the ridiculous prize for the $100 package that only SK8 KAMP can do. For the small price of those one hundred dollars the SK8 KAMP 2015 Team is letting people fulfill their ultimate fantasy of living within a skatepark by letting people squat overnight under their work. SLEEP IS FOR THE WEAK.

How Do I Know Its Real and Not Just Existing In An Existential Burning Man Dreamscape?

We know it seems like a group hallucination but you’re not crazy and its definitely real. The meticulous injury count over the past 5 years as SK8 KAMP has grown is a testament the reality of bailing in the desert. And we quote:

“Here’s an injury count from our previous years (don’t worry, we take good care of our injured Sk8ers with our Kamp wheel chair and ice packs):
2011 – 1 throat hit/injured by skateboard, 1 lip split open, 3 sprained ankles, 232 bruises
2012 – 1 broken arm, 1 injured shoulder, 1 broken leg, 543 bruises
2013 – 1 broken arm, 3 twisted ankles, 367 bruises
2014 – 1 broken arm, 1 sprained ankle, 1 sliced lip, 162 bruises (we’re way down, what is happening here?)”

SK8 KAMP Bruise 2015 - Unicorns Are Real
Unicorns are real.


With such a huge decrease in bruises the SK8 KAMP team is funneling their extra ice pack money in to making sure things are extra crazy this year. They’re power packing along with DUSTFISH and Sextant camps to Voltron up and create DUSTFISH Village. Location is 6:30 & Esplanade near Center Camp and in the primetime zone. With such an epic camp comes a need for funds and SK8 KAMP is only asking for a small amount to make it happen. Every year they go to huge lengths to create the unicorn of skate parks and this year will be the biggest unicorn yet.

It’s Also Charity Bro

See because once they’re done they donate the features and obstacles and ramps and hopes and dreams to local parks. So you also directly benefit the community. Be like SK8 KAMP. Be a hero. Do the right thing and back their 2015 Kickstarter.

New Custom Longboards for 2015 – Design Your Own

Whew! We’ve been away from the blog for a bit there but we’re back with some great updates! We’ve been in the lab making the site better every day, including getting our new board models for 2015 ready to launch.

New 2015 Custom Longboard Models!

Alas, the wait is over! We’re starting the new boards out right this year with some real killer custom decks, some mods and improvements on old deck shapes, and some brand new shapes! The new improvements are awesome, making the boards even more fun to ride in all the right ways. The new shapes are dope, and some that have been previously reserved for only team riders are now available for everyone – w00t!

The 2015 Dart (Cruiser / Pin Tail)

The Dart - Newly Improved 2015 Custom Pin Tail LongboardAfter our 2014 Dart sold out we knew this deck would be a popular one again in 2015, and we’ve modified the shape to be longer and wider. This makes the deck an obvious choice for cruising the boardwalk or doing some casual downhill. The added length makes it even more stable and fun to carve, and the more symmetrical shape makes it less top heavy and a better all around balance to the board. At 44 inches long you’ll have enough room to comfortably walk around on the board and rock different stances or toe hangs. The classic lengthy pin tail longboard shape is timeless and stylish, perfect for cruising to the beach. check it out »

The Bullet (Freeride / Downhill)

The Bomber - New 2015 Custom LongboardThis was previously only a team board, and is now available for custom design for anyone and everyone. This deck has a real unique shape, wide and short with a flat medium concave in front and W concave in back, letting your back foot really get a solid grip for freeride thrashing. This deck looks like a bullet in shape with a blunt back end and pointed nose, and flies like a bullet, with only 8 ply making is a lighter hill bomber than the Bomber, or Perfecto. The beastly wide style adds a lot of control for balance and powering hard carves, but the relatively shorter 36 inch height keeps it light and agile, and also is great for riders with big feet. All in all this free ride beast surprises you with it’s downhill abilities making it an awesome all around mountain shredder.

The Bomber (Downhill / Freeride)

The Bomber - New 2015 Custom Longboard This is by far the most responsive downhill board we have. The Bomber was also an exclusive team rider board until this year, and we’re excited to have the custom print ability ready to rock for 2015 so now anyone can design their own custom Bomber longboard. This deck is topmount but has underflush truck spots and mircrodrops at each end to lower the center of gravity, and a deep concave (W in back). All combined that gets your feet locking in deep right on the trucks for amazing control and maximum leverage. The 9 ply hard maple construction is super stiff, for high speeds and tight turns. If you’re bombing hills and trying to get to the bottom as fast as possible with the control to shred the tight turns, this is a great choice.
