Wild In The Streets 2012 Detroit











Emerica's Wild in the Streets gathers skateboarders of every age, color and creed to converge on city streets around the world in the celebration of pure skateboarding. On Thursday June 21, 2012, join the Emerica team and thousands of skateboarders from around the globe for Emerica's Wild in the Streets in Detroit, Michigan. Check the new video http://youtu.be/xv0OQU2Hp_8

For Wild in the Streets 2012, Emerica has partnered with Power House Productions to benefit their neighborhood revitalization project, RideIt Sculpture Park.

Power House Productions is an artist-run neighborhood-based nonprofit organization. Their mission is to develop and implement creative neighborhood stabilization strategies to revitalize and inspire the community. Their current project, RideIt Sculpture Park, is a do-it-yourself style skatepark built by skateboarders. The goal of the park is to create a space where neighborhood kids and adults can meet, play, create, build and exercise.

Boards For Bros is a group of skateboarders dedicated to collecting and refurbishing skateboards so they can be redistributed back into communities where children cannot afford their own. The beneficiaries of this year's Emerica/Boards For Bros efforts will be the kids of the Power House 'hood. You can help by contributing your old completes, decks, trucks & wheels to Boards for Bros at the following locations. You'll receive a same-day 10% discount on Emerica product for your contribution:
> .            Chiipss Skateboards & Apparel
> .            Plus Skateboarding
> .            Detroit City Skateboards
> .            Refuge Skateboard Shop
> .            Oakland Vert Skatepark
> .            Modern Skate & Surf
> .            Tru Class SkateShop
> Additionally, 100 artists will be creating/donating skateboards to be sold at the Good Wood Exhibition, a skateboard deck art fundraising online auction and show. The auction begins on May 19 and final bid date will coincide with the show, on May 26 at 10-22-9 in Hamtramck, MI. 100% of funds raised will go to the initial RideIt Sculpture Park build beginning early June.

Projet 45 Collective - DIY Expo Recap















We wanted to share with you some of the coverage we’ve had for the Project 45 Collective show that was launched last Thursday at the Fresh Paint Gallery on Ste-Catherine Street in Montreal.
The event sponsored by INSTANCE and ALTAMONT was a huge success as the whole Montreal skateboard scene showed up to support the cause, see the installations or get to ride the DIY obstacles built inside the gallery.  The place was packed and the generous donations of the sponsors and supporters allowed us to raise over 2000$.  That money will be entirely used to buy a truck-load of concrete to start this skateboarding season with a few new obstacles at the Project!
We’ll keep you guys posted with all new developments regarding the Project 45 this year.  Timebomb’s contributed 500$ and INSTANCE donated 50 pairs of socks where 1 pair was given for every donation over 10$. 
Here’s some links you can check out for now as there's more to come.

new RVCA installation














Christopher Bettig recently put up a new installation at the RVCA in San Francisco, consisting of all kinds of woods and rope. I love that Chris can take the most ramshackle of materials and make something beautiful out of them. It looks almost like a bunch of hippies took too much peyote and decided to make a structure out of everything they could find. There’s honesty to his work, it’s an expression of his abstract mind. I think it’s also worth mentioning that Chris has a day job at Google, and I’m sure it was good for him to make something physical again. If you’re in SF you should stop by and check it out.
