Scott Starr fund

Noted photographer, skate/surf film and TV historian Scott Starr has been diagnosed with Menieres Disease. He’s also considered a find of the site. I have featured his digital transfers of archival footage her on S&A over the years under the banner of “Saturday Starrs” and I’ve bought a few comic books from him that have also graced the pages of S&A. Skip your Starbucks for a day help Scott out via a GoFundMe campaign that his sister set up.


Lexus behind the Hoverboard curve

I think someone in marketing forgot to tell the decision maker at Lexus that the “real” hoverboard viral marketing campaign has already been done. It’s barely been a year, and since that time an actual working hoverboard (of sorts) has been created. So it’s extremely unlikely that Lexus has made such an amazing leap in technology. Sure they could make a prettier version of the Hendo, but you’d still have to ride it on a special surface. I’m sure it won’t cost much to retrofit an average skatepark for maglev technology. If you’re buying into it, they’re going to release more details on Oct. 21, 2015, which is the date Marty McFly went “Back to the Future.” I guess they couldn’t wait till the next April Fools day. It looks like the old Tony Hawk Ride game controller from Activision. (Yes, I’ll eat my hat if I’m wrong, but I’ll be excited about it.)

UPDATE: it looks like they’re building a special skatepark for this board. Pics and link after the jump. – Thanks to Josef for the tip.

Sit on it Potsie (part 2)


A felt covered skateboard that double as the back for your office chair. Spend your coffee break taking a few runs through the cube farm. Pure silly. Pure fun. Mobilité is a collaboration between Tim Defleur and Benjamin Helle. [Source: DesignBoom] – Thanks to MC for the tip.


Blockhead Skates Relaunch


Blockhead Skateboards holds a strange place in my personal skateboarding history. It is easily one of the top 4 brands that I admired in the 80’s, and yet I never actually owned one. I did own one of those Easter Island head shirts, and we interviewed Sam Cunningham in issue #5 of Skate and Annoy […]




This picture doesn’t do the size of these bearing covers justice. These tiny wheels are not the result of hipster irony or a 90’s street skating reenactment hobbyist. It’s a result of Zoo Bombing, slipping axles, exposed axle nuts being ground down, and yes, economics. It’s his birthday soon, so he’s looking forward to a […]


Master Blasters


Licensed Masters of the Universe prodcuct via Threadless. I never cared for that cartoon, but I can appreciate a good remix. Skeletor and She-Ra on a skateboard. She-Ra has som custom Air Jordans. – Thanks to Pig City for the tip.


Footy Sk8r


Cheap fingerboards are a dime a dozen or in this case, $36 a dozen. The packaging on these cheap toys is worth more that the actual product. Fingerboards from China… I know. Who cares? I always like a good sports crossover, and this serves as your reminder to watch the USA vs Columbia in today’s […]


Happy Skating Wonderful Clown


I had no choice but to purchase this. As soon as it arrives from Italy, I’ll take better pictures. The box is priceless. – Thanks to David ODK for the tip. P.S. Please don’t tell my wife.
