Juice Magazine - "Pools, Pipes & Punk Rock" AND the best sk8 mag ever published

There are all sorts of skate magazines catering to various niches of the skateboarding industry and culture. Some focus on old school while others dwell on what they think is current and will sell the most copies. Very often music is incorporated in the form of band interviews and reviews. They all rely on advertising to sustain themselves... in addition to a large subscriber/reader base.

Juice Magazine Cover

Of them all Juice stands out as a heavy weight contender. Based in the east (NC to be exact), they deliver the thickest, beefiest and most information-packed mag available. You'll likely have trouble finding it, but if you do beg, borrow or steal to obtain it. It's that good!

Then fill out the subscription card.

When your tagline is, "Pools, Pipes & Punk Rock" you know they aren't screwing around. I am amazed at the quantity of quality info, articles and reviews they provide. Honestly, I can't figure out how they do it. They easily provide 5 times the amount of info any mainstream sk8 mag can. AND Juice is an east-coast company. Top that!

Words

porn star Ron Jeremy

Juice is printed in an over-size format making it stand out from all the other puny sk8 mags. Height and width make it stand out, but it's the depth that counts. Juice is thick like a steak or a porn star's wanger. However, be prepared to read. To what? Yes, read. Juice isn't a glossy picture book (Hello, Transworld). In fact, it isn't glossy at all. It's raw - in a very satisfyingly cool way that makes you crave more. Juice always has a story to tell, an incite to share and an opinion to make you re-think what you thought you already knew.

Achieving this requires words. Benefiting from this requires reading the words. Too many people are illiterate wanks who would rather watch reality TV than chill with a good book for an hour or so. Well kids, get out reading glasses because Juice will make you want to read. From the first article you will not put it down (if you do, you risk assassination)
