Drink Water & Drink Water Raiden Bindings

If you have not heard yet our friends Bryan Fox and Austin Smith  have started a company to create awareness about the global water shortage, also to get all of us to drink more water and maybe a little less of that other stuff. Here is the "reason" from the Drink Water website :

"Drink Water is a friendly reminder to drink water.

Maybe you, like us, began to feel uncomfortable about how effective "energy drink" companies have become at encouraging young people to consume their product: beverages of caffeine, sodium, sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and even some mystery chemicals about which little is known.

In 2011, we began writing Drink Water on our snowboards. Drink Water became some sort of statement, movement, mission, or whatever it is, and we bought some silkscreens and started making t-shirts, stickers, and sweatshirts. We gave a bunch away, and people we respect wore them with pride.

As we encouraged folks to drink water, we learned that nearly a billion people on Earth don't have access to clean drinking water--that's 1 out of every 8 people. In some parts of the developing world, that lack of clean drinking water is deadly.

For every Drink Water purchase, 10% of profits will be donated to provide drinking water for someone in need. We're supporting a non-profit,, as they drill wells to fight the water crisis.

We're out to spread the Drink Water word. We don’t sell water, we just drink it.

Thank you for your time and consideration. We'll see you out there.

Austin Smith and Bryan Fox"

To show their support for fellow team riders Nitro has released a Limited edition Drink Water binding available at select retailers such as Sanction. This limited binding is a Raiden zero binding in a very special colour.

So make sure you check out Drink Water and show the cause some love, maybe grab a new hoodie or tee.

To get your hands on this binding swing by any of our fine establishments or grab a pair HERE before they are gone.

Ben Nordberg

Speaking of past and present Flip riders, Ben Nordberg just released his solo part. His riding is so relaxed he makes me want to shred and fall asleep at the same time...


Bastien Salabanzi

Remeber when Bastien Salabanzi was a young kid who rode for Flip and was supposed to be the next Tom Penny? Then he broke ties with his companies and took off and never heard much else....well he came back to the States and killed it at Kansas City Street League.


Arto Saari on Epicly Later’d

Arto Saari's story is nothing short of miraculous. Obviously he's naturally gifted and skated his ass off as a kid, but his rise to prominence is like no one else's. If you wanted to describe it to someone who doesn't skate, you could say: Imagine a boy from a faraway country showing up at the World Series and asking if he can play. And not only does he play, but he hits four home runs and becomes the MVP. That's basically what Arto did; he showed up at the best place to show off your skills as a walk-on and kicked off one of the most apex (that's Arto's word for amazing) skate careers of all time.  

Arto is personally one of my favorite skaters of all time. I watched this dude grow up as I was growing up watching videos like Menikmati to Sorry; from Flip Skateboards to his departure onto Alien Workshop and now back to Flip. Watch and learn a few things...

Film Nerd? Watch This.

Check out Gravis skate filmer, Russell Houghten's video part for Transworld Skateboarding's the Cinematographer Project. Artsy enough for the film geeks and rad enough for the skate rats, this part has some some serious editing to bring you slow mo and fast mo packaged all together in one. A job well done if you ask me...

Features: Dylan Rieder, John Rattray, Shuriken Shannon, Tom Karangelov, Jordan Taylor, Arto Saari, Oscar Meza, Dominik Dietrich, Jared Huss, Sam Winter, Jake Johnson, Stefan Janoski, and Ben Nordberg.

Element Future Nature Am Video

Um, Have you seen this video yet?

Skateboard brand Element just uploaded a full video which is called: Future Nature. Instead of making another full video with the pro’s, Element decided to fully focus on their Amateur team. This doesn’t mean that the skating in this video isn’t good, it'll blow your mind and quiestion your idea of what a Pro and Amateur is. Is that a good thing? I don't know but it sure brings skateboarding up a notch.
