Trucker in The Boardr Store

Why are these called trucker hats? Do truckers sweat through the head more than your average cut of society? Nope, I think we need to take this one over and officially change the mesh top lid to being called a skater hat. For as long as the three decades we've been around in skateboarding, these hats have always been around.




The Boardr Gainesville Now Open

We're open with our new location in Gainesville! Thanks to everyone that has stopped by so far. We'll have a real housewarming party soon. For now, check out a few photos. It's at 17 West University Avenue, Gainesville, Florida 32601.

Sunglasses in The Boardr Store

Sunglasses are all over the spectrum, literally, in skateboarding. Some are $10, some are well into the hundreds. We've got most of the spectrum to choose from, but it's up to you to figure out the appropriate time and place to run these. Certain people can pull them off at night or in the club, while others just don't look right even with them on in the daytime.




Recap: Grind for Life at New Smyrna Presented by adidas

It was another nice Florida weekend of skateboarding from literally all ages and skills. From 7-year-olds to 53-year-olds and everyone in between, men and women included, everyone ripped. Thanks for coming out to another one. With HiDefJoe on the west coast working on other projects, filmer intern Nate took over on this one and has the video recap along with some photos. Check full results here.
