Skateboard + Blog = SKLOG?

Ramblings From the Road... and my desk

I wanted a clever name for this blog and as you can see, I failed. The problem is a skateboard blog is no more a sklog than skateboard art is "skart". It just doesn't flow like "fugly" or "shart" - both of which are concatenations that are funny and clever. Some day I'll be funny and clever. Until then, just enjoy the sklog blog. Thanks!

Stance's American Daredevil collection is a great tribute to Evel Knievel Stance Evel Knievel socks I loved Evel Knievel when I was a kid. Seeing his stunts on Wide World of Sports was an amazing experience to me. Building bike ramps with my friends was my way of trying to be a part of what Evel achieved.

From books and magazines, I just couldn't get enough of him. The year I had an Evel Kenievel Halloween costume, my parents had a tough time getting to to ever take it off. Every day warranted an Evel costume. On my bike in that red, white, and blue outfit 0 I was invincible. Or so I thought.

Stance's American Daredevil collection brings several designs capturing some of Evel's logos and style.

From the Stance website:
American daredevil Evel Knievel did things other men were afraid to do. He jumped motorcycles over boxes of rattlesnakes, from skyscraper to skyscraper, over busses, and rocketed over the mighty Snake River. He believed pain made him appreciate life, dreams were meant to be followed, and every crash was a success as long as he got up. We celebrate Evel Knievel's legacy with designs inspired by his iconic style and spirit. Introducing the Dare Devil, part of the Evel Knievel x Stance collection.

Spanish skateboarder posthumously awarded one of Spain's highest honors after London terror attacks Spanish skateboarder posthumously awarded one of Spain's highest honours The country's government has deemed him worthy of the Grand Cross of the Order of Civil Merit for his bravery. Ignacio Echeverria reportedly tried to fight off the terrorists with his skateboard to save a stabbed woman.

He became one of eight victims of the assault on the London Bridge area. The foreign ministry in Madrid said: "His bravery in standing up for a defenseless person is a reminder of the need to remain united in the face of the scourge of terrorism."

I'd heard of Vans releasing a Peanuts shoe line and was stoked to see it locally Vans shoes with various Peanuts themes Vans X Peanuts Old-Skool I grew up with the Peanuts gang in the Sunday newspaper comics and collected books full of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus... wow the memories come rushing back!

Vans and Peanuts are back with a new collection featuring Charles M. Schulz's iconic characters and guaranteed to be Joe Cool-approved. Created with vintage artwork from the '60s, '70s and '80s.

As a longtime fan of Vans slip-ons, I love the designs, but I'm really loving the yellow shoe with Charlie Brown's signature shirt. Thrasher once sold a hat with that theme - the Gnarly Brown.
