Spearheaded by The Skateboarder’s Journal publisher Jack Smith, A Push to Remember – Skateboarding Across America to End Alzheimer’s draws attention to a shared vision of a future without Alzheimer’s disease, which currently affects more than five million Americans. One in three seniors dies with some form of dementia and someone is diagnosed with the disease every 68 seconds. Without a cure, that number will double – to every 33 seconds – in the next 30 years.

Loaded Boards Releases The Poke

The Poke is a performance bamboo composite longboard designed to carve and slash through the urban landscape.

Joining a pond of playful performers, the Poke is the latest incarnation of the Fish and Ceviche, mellow-mannered cousin of the Kanthaka, and little sibling to the Fattail. Nimble, highly pumpable, and freestyle-friendly, this versatile city commuter keeps up with your every whim and makes each outing a creative, dynamic adventure.

ORANGATANG OFFERS MORONGA FOR VEGAN SKATE CONNOISSEURS
