Skateboard Wraps

We ask that you please use discretion when creating your art. We will not print any pornographic images.

The no pornographic images thing pretty much leads us to believe that it isn’t a Skateboarder running it.

Tony Hawk’s Big Spin

tony hawks big spin

This new roller coaster, made by Gerstlauer in Germany, is patterned after the moves of professional skateboarder Tony Hawk. Instead of zipping along on tracks where each time you ride you move in the same pattern of ups, downs and arounds, this roller coaster has cars that spin as if you’re free-styling on a skateboard. None of the spins match each other so each time you ride, the experience is different.

We stopped dissing Tony Hawk out of respect. But we are more than capable of dissing Gerstlauer (The manufacturer), for making the ride only 45-50 feet tall. Just goes to show you that the marketing is directed toward children.

Olympic Skateboarding

Tony Larson at The Art Dump pointed out a story about Skateboarding being in the 2012 Olympics.

The IOC does not recognize an international skateboarding federation, so the sport would first need to be adopted as a discipline under the UCI umbrella. After that, the UCI could make a formal proposal to the IOC for its inclusion in the Olympics.

We like the words Skateboarding as a Discipline.
