The World’s First 3D Printed Skateboard
Dutch artist Samuel Abbot won a 3D printer in a contest organized by 3DPrintUK and CGTrader. He then used the printer and his trusty design skills to create this amazingly badass skateboard. Click through for more pics and a video to see how it was made.

From the designer:

It wasn’t quite as straight forward as just a print as the board is longer than our build tray, meaning that we had to cut it into 3 sections, joining it together with some connector pins to ensure accuracy and to give it some strength over a simple butt joint.

Boosted Boards - The Lightest Electric Longboards Ever

I’m 28 years old. My leg-bones can’t handle landing skate tricks like they used to, but every now and then I get the urge to skate to work. I’ve been debating scooping a decent longboard and I think the fine peeps over at Boosted Boards have just what I’m looking for. Their electric longboards are just 12lbs., making them world’s lightest electric vehicles, they get about 6 miles out of a single charge, and they can hit speeds of up to 20MPH. The only downside is they’re a bit pricey. $1200 is no joke.

New tokidoki Gear: Shirts, Hats, and Decks

I was pretty bummed out by the not-so-cool dude-shirt designs that tokidoki released a month or two ago. But they’ve redeemed themselves already with some awesome new designs, especially the Spider-Man hoodie with some Japanese writing on it. My head is way too big for hats, but some of the new ones are pretty cool. And those new skate decks are just too nice to do boardslides on. I’m just hoping tokidoki eventually start giving back attention to their original characters rather than creating a majority of Marvel stuff.

Custom Skateboards by Jeff Beck

Jeff Beck sent us these pics of some customs boards he did for the Grind skateboard art show at the Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro, NC which kicked off this past weekend. As huge fans of sugar skull girls, Nintendo, Ultraman, and skateboarding, we fully support these radical shenanigans.

Speaking of sugar skulls, Nintendo, and Ultraman, check out these sweet prints from Jonathan Koshi.

Bart Simpson Would Be Proud

Skateboards and spray cans often go hand in hand, but not like this. These dudes rigged remote controlled spray paint cans to the bottom of skateboards so that a trail of paint can be traced out by the board’s movements through the pool. Genius!

The dudes at Smash Tokyo Toys have a new skate deck out featuring their flaship toy, Seismic Ace on 8 1/4” maple hardwood. Get it HERE. We hear it’s what all the cool kids are skating on these days.
The deck is available from a cool site I’d never heard of before called Board Pusher. It’s basically like Cafe Press or Redbubble, but for skate decks. Pretty cool if you’re looking to get your own art on a skateboard.
