Hadn't seen one since the early nineties I think...
Basically looks like a printed instagram account (minus the vids)

On the other hand... this was waiting for me when I got home tonight and it is AWESOME!!!

TWS has only recently gone fully digital but getting hold of a printed copy in recent years was only available through subscription.
I always preferred TWS to likes of Thrasher as it was more about the skating and less about all the other crap like fashion, music and the like. I still occasionally get my first ever TWS down from the loft for a nostalgic read. Here it is from ‘86. Some skinny kid called Tony Hawk is on the cover.

I did as well. Anyone remember the old thrashers that were on news print that left your hands covered in black ink?

Back on topic. Not quite ready for it yet but I love this shape and their wood so Im ready when the current one is finished.

It is. Scram is Nolan Johnson's company that was started after Jason (that owns welcome) screwed over almost all of the original riders. The names a jab just like Blind was to Vision.
Ahh. I forgot about the smell of the og Thrashers!

Or

State “Madisons” just about broke them in. Very nice shoe with good board feel & great stock insoles.

Would recommend & you can pick them up for silly money!

got a set of oj keyframes for skating to spots to skate and walking the dog. I'd normally just ride my regular wheels but the roads around my new house are horribly crusty. Almost like skating gravel that's glued down. Gave my niece my old spitfire cruiser wheels so she could roll and get used to skating without worrying about slipping out and rattling her teeth out. Also a new 1/8" cutting board for my wife since I had to make some risers since they're conicals and you get waaaaaaaaay more wheel bite with that shape as opposed to the spitfire classic shape(my last were 56's as well and didn't need risers at all. never had a wheel bite issue, I guess its that extra 1/2" sticking straight out!). Live and learn.

That looks nice GoR64. the wheel wells are snazzy and the shape looks great. Hopefully the missing wood lightens it enough for you!
On a side note, wheel wells seem to be on the rise.

What Jim said.

That looks nice and you do not usually see wheel wells on a popsicle which is cool

Honestly, I've had the deck in front of me for a couple days, it's so pretty I'm hesitant to set it up. I really like the artwork, it matches the colour scheme in the living room, and I've also just started playing nice with my old Almost 8.125". So, it might be a hanger. I usually really enjoy fucking up a really good graphic, and it's all gripped and ready to go, but damn.

My first reaction: Wall hanger? NO! It's made for skating, maaaan! *Sprays spittle all over keyboard and screen*

Slightly more considered reaction after a moment: Hmm. It *is* very pretty, though.
Doesn´t like decks with dolphins or Bob Marley painted on.

Wheels are my old Spitfire f4 wheels I got years back.

This freakshow is me wanting to go faster. Shanghai is as flat as a pancake, but my new wife's city has some amazing mountains just a short drive away, and the memories if bombing hills back when I was 14 is haunting me.

Mornin' MAS!

Well, it is morning where I am.

Apologies for more lurk / less post, please find attached a small catch up of things I bought today (but not today)..

In April, despite being well into lock down, not going anywhere to skate & having a new(ish) board on the go, I impulse bought a deck from a new UK co..

Image

It's an 8.25.

The woodstain / graphic / general vibe / stickers made me do it.
--

May. The roads outside my house are stone chipped and rough as, so I used lockdown as justification to buy a set of 52mm / 78a Ricta Clouds.. then followed it up with a 9.75 Krooked Gonz Sweatpants to help soak up the bumps. Had to redrill the baseplates on my old Indies, but it's amazing and I love it.

Image

The rail has gone now as I haven't board slid since 1991.

Now.. to the 'Did you skate today?' thread.

Cheers.

The company is World Peace Machine (@worldpeacemachine on Insta). You can see their stuff on Legacy Skate Store website.

Since Assault folded Rickys now on Legend (local Sacramento skater owned & manufactured) and figured I can always use a new punk point. Its time to resurface the mini so masonite and spar. The last I had on there was about 3 years old and left uncovered all that time so...FYI its still skatable, so masonite with oil based spar will save $ and time on outdoor ramps.
