Andrew Dunaenko - Snow Day Skate

As longboarders leaned their wheels against scuffed-up garage walls all across the city to store until the next spring season, Andrew Dunaenko took his Zeno's Bane out for a few more runs on the first day of Edmonton snowfall in order to savour the last of the pavement.

2016 Joypulp W.I.L.D

It's almost skate season, and Joypulp has been busy over the winter prototyping the 2016 versions of our house decks. These decks will be available to order in the coming months, and will be pressed with a new layup style we've spent a while developing. 

Even more important, we've collaborated with several artists and graphic designers to refresh the faces of our boards. Over the next week we'll be showcasing these graphics right here on the Joypulp Blog. 

Our first preview is the 2016 W.I.L.D. A 34" single-tail deck perfect for anything from campus cruising to light free-ride. The graphic is illustrated by New York-based artist Wellington Sun!

Iconic Longboard Videos That Encourage You To Get Up And Ride Off This St. Patrick's Day Hangover

Hangovers suck, they're annoying, pounding headaches that try to convince you that the fun you had last night was really just borrowed from this morning. But it doesn't have to be that way. Fun is not bound by a law of conservation like energy, and can in fact be created or destroyed at will. 

Below are three of the most well-made longboard videos out on the web, created by three iconic longboard brands in their own right. Gulp down that Tylenol and enjoy these videos of people having fun while the pills take effect, then grab your board and head outside to create some extra fun for yourself instead of Netflix this hangover.
