Darkroom Skateboards in the Mini Skate Shop


I’m stoked to have the first round of Darkroom Skateboards, owned and operated by Don Pendleton in the Mini Skate Shop at both Equal Dist and Solitary Arts online shops.  All have subtle unique shapes along with artwork from Don himself.  Grab them here or at a fine skateboard shop near you.

Special Crud…


Special Crud by Todd Francis, available at Equal Dist


Chris Nieratko recently put together this sick little segment on the original East Coast company, SHUT skateboards. If you grew up skating in the northeast in the late 80s/early 90s, then you know how much of an influence they had on the scene. So rad. True Legends. Sit back and enjoy.
