You see, designing a skate wall mount isn’t easy. You have to make sure that it can store and organize your longboards neatly and be able to hold it properly so it doesn’t fall off.

Not only will you have plenty of mounts to choose from, but you’re guaranteed that they were made specifically for your longboard.

A history of skate shoes

Killer Kicks: A history of skate shoes

Certain skateboarding shoe designs defined skateboarding. It’s through particular designs that you can chart the history of the sport itself; from the early days of the multi-purpose Converse All-Stars to the highly-specialised Nike SB Koston 3 Hyperfeel.

It’s not just the names that became more elaborate. When the Randolph Rubber Company, a small, Massachusetts-based outfit, created the Randy 720, the first ever purpose-built skate shoe, it would signal the beginning of the race to design the best skate shoe.

50 years later, the pinnacle of skateboarding shoe design comes from multi-billion dollar companies, by way of years of innovation, testing, the input of professional skateboarders and amateurs alike, and pure experience. Whilst the sport’s popularity has ebbed and flowed, a loyal community has encouraged the evolution of tricks, boards, technology and, of course, shoes. Sock-like collars and new, more versatile materials show us the industry’s development.

Simple Footwear’s History of Skate Shoes charts how we went from the 720 to the wild aesthetics of the Osiris D3, and everything in between. As skating developed its own specialities, shoes followed suit; DC’s collaboration with big-air specialist Danny Way being a great example. A 10-foot drop out of a helicopter onto a ramp propelled not only himself through the air but DC’s global profile through the roof. Similar celebrity skater endorsements fuelled design inspiration.

Reinforced mid-soles, high-top ankle support, big-air modifications, vulcanised rubber soles, varied lacing technology… what happens below the surface is just as important as what happens above. The variety of visual design is testament to the diversity inherent to skateboarding culture. Wild colours and patterns serve as expressions of the influences within skateboarding, and the popularity of skating shoes in culture in general is just as telling.

No Sweat - Helmet / Hat liner

NoSweat disposable liners for helmets or hats

In the past, I’ve seen some black snapback hats with white salt marks, guys squeezing sweat from their helmets and have spent a lot of hours travelling in a car smelling of skaters. Although this liner might not be helpful for people who hardly break a sweat while skating, I think some of you might find it interesting.

About the NoSweat helmet liner

NoSweat is a replaceable liner for hats and helmets mostly used in mainstream team sports, but it can also be applied to skateboarding.

NoSweat disposable liners for helmets or hats

It consists of 5 thin and lightweight layers of fabric that breathe and absorb sweat, while simultaneously reduce odour. Furthermore, it also eliminates fog buildup, making it a good add-on to a full face helmet.

Application to any head gear is super easy. First you peel off the label covering the adhesive, then you place it inside your helmet or hat and finally firmly press it along the edges to make it stick.

Designed to not damage the interior of your headgear, it’s also easily replaceable. The brand offers two grades of adhesive, standard for helmets, and extra strength adhesive for streetwear hats.

NoSweat offers two grades of adhesive, standard for helmets, and extra strength adhesive for streetwear hats.

Depending on how much you sweat while skating, NoSweat recommends replacing the liner after every use, but you can probably use it for maybe 2-3 sessions.

Currently they only ship to the US and Canada, but the brand wants to expand internationally. For more into, visit the NoSweat website.

In conclusion, I like the idea and the easy application. Making a helmet less stinky is always great and avoiding sweat burning your eyes is welcomed. But I didn’t really find any info regarding the price and how much sweat it actually absorbs. All in all, if it works, it ain’t stupid.

WAPH Laces

WAPH Laces – The strongest laces system ever created for your shoes

The young french brand WAPH, which is becoming more and more famous in kitesurfing and wakeboarding, has rebuilt the traditional laces tightening systems to make the bindings never get loose. And it works pretty well, without making any knot.

WAPH Laces - Jaune

Then the brand adapted its system for shoes, first for wakeskaters (skateboarding on water) but it began obvious that it could be used for any board sports that require a strong tightening with no risk of getting loose.

WAPH Laces - Jaune S

Here is why the WAKESKATING pack from WAPH, composed of 2 laces + 2 buckles, will really be useful for us! The lace is 3x more stronder than other laces, and can handle some pretty hard treatments ! The buckle was especially design for the WAPH lace, to guarantee the best tightening ever. Its real cog wheel inside reall yblock the lace in a perfect way, and gives you the best comfort.

Without making a knot, the laces are shorter (90cm) and there’s no risk to walk or ride on it.

The whole system is 100% made in France and seems to be a great weapon for those who always have trouble with their laces. This might be the solution : no knot, no scotch, just this small buckle to block the lace.

WAPH laces - Collection

It seems that the system is really loved in wakeboarding, kitesurfing and wakeskating, sports in which the laces have a hard life, so it must be perfect for longboarding too.

Visit WAPH website for more info at www.waph.fr and follow the brand Facebook or Instagram.

Tuck Yeah Longboard Travel Bag

Longboard travel bag by Tuck Yeah Apparel – Product Release

Tuck Yeah Apparel recently announced the release of a longboard travel bag and I immediately ordered one for myself. Fairly priced and sized conveniently for the smaller local trips, it’s big enough to carry the board and all the essentials. Read through to find out more about the bag’s features.

Longboard travel bag by Tuck Yeah

Tuck Yeah Apparel is a brand run by the rad brothers from Milan, Stefano and Simone Barbizzi. As a part of their family business, the Barbizzi bros also produce a cool skateboarding themed apparel, like t-shirt and hats. You can check out all the stuff they do on their Facebook page if you’re interested.

Tuck Yeah longboard travel bag features

While waiting for the bag to be delivered sometimes in April, I talked with Stefano to find out more about the longboard bag and it’s features. He told me all about it and gave me a nice video tour of one of the prototype models. The bag looks very functional and has really cool features. Let’s check them out.

#1 Compact size makes it handy for local trips

I like it how the Tuck Yeah longboard bag is more compact comparing to some other bigger and more expensive longboard bags. Stefano and Simone didn’t design the TuckYea bag to fit a helmet and due to its smaller size, it’s more convenient for transport, especially when travelling with a smaller car.

#2 Two extra pockets for all the essentials

The Tuck Yeah longboard bag features 2 extra pockets. One bigger pocket on the inside and one smaller pocket on the outside. The bigger pocket is big enough to carry at least 3 sets of wheels, some spare grip tape, nuts and bolts, bearings, bushings and a skate tool. I see no issues with fitting my G-form pads and slide gloves in the bag as well. I guess that’s all that I might need on a session, right?

To have that skate tool more accessible, I will probably carry it in the smaller pocket on the outside, along with some other stuff, like my wallet, phone, keys and similar. Damn! Now everyone will know where I’ll keep my wallet 🙂

#3 Two carrying options + it’s foldable

The TuckYeah bag features a nice handle for carrying with one hand and the additional straps for carrying on the back as a backpack. It doesn’t have wheels like some other bags, but I don’t think that I’ll miss them.

As it’s foldable, you can make it smaller and more comfortable to carry when there’s no board in it. It’s not water proof, but the material looks thick enough, so few drops of rain should not do any real damage.

Where to buy the Tuck Yeah longboard bag and how much it costs

At the time of writing this article the TuckYeah longboard bag is available through the pre-order only for 60 Euros. The pre-orders are expected to be fulfilled in April this year and from that point on, you will be able to order the bags via the BDS Ricami online shop.

Compared to other longboard travel bags, the TuckYeah bag comes at a half of the price. This makes it a great option for those on budget or for those who are looking for a decent entry level longboard bag.
