Weird Wood video was great! Congrats to Rob, Eric, and the whole Weird Wood crew. Stoked seeing team riders Adam, Francis, and Nick ripping it up as well as some shots of the legendary Syska! Big thanks to all who came out, to Flat Bread for supplying pizzas, and of course to Weird Wood. We've got their new boards stocked up including great dual stained whale decks, the beaver, a 7.75 for the first time in WW production, and more. Francis's deck is now out and we've got them in stock. Just like when you buy a Nick deck, buy a Francis deck and get a free LBS tee! Support local businesses and Maine skaters. We've also got a few of the DVD's left for sale, come get them and witness the Weird Wood.
Time for the annual LBS shop deck & this year we decided to team up with local photographer Louis T. of Independent Street for the design. Lou has been taking photos of our team right from the start & one of our favorites of his made it onto the deck (along with his great logo). LBS family member, Chad Turner of NYverland, helped to get the deck looking exactly the way we had envisioned.
We kept it to the Pine Tree State and went back to National Wood Products of Maine in Oxford for the decks. There's something great about being able to hop in the car and head to the hills to pick up the decks and bring them home, all in a morning's work.
It was pretty short notice, so thanks to everyone in the who made it out to the deck release/mini ramp session at the end of July.We had just returned from Agenda Trade Show in NYC the night before, drove up to Oxford early that morning and unveiled it that night surrounded by LBS family, food on the grill and drinks in hand to toast another great summer of skating.
These are a one time printing and we're going through them at a good pace - be sure to stop by to see them and grab one in your size (available in 7.75, 8, 8.25, 8.5, 8.6).
Thanks to everyone involved, all of our customers and the great state of Maine's skate scene for making it possible! - S&T
Traditions are forming - LBS is holding it's 3rd annual Halloween Skate Jam at the Portland park on Halloween night, followed up with a Weird Wood comp for the second year in a row on Nov 1st. With a growing company, team and compound - this year is setting up to be a great one. Did you make it down last year? Well you may not recognize the place, Rob & the crew have been working to rebuild and there will be a new compound to explore if you make it into the woods. I've been looking at a preview of some of the decks coming out this fall, including Peterson & Akerley decks. Plus one that TLo is the most excited for, here's a peek, can you guess what it is? We'll let you know when they're on the deck wall! -s
