Ever since I first saw some of ROA’s impressive pieces of art all over east London, I just can’t get enough of him. ROA has now designed three limited-edition skateboards for the Sk8room, which are available via their website. And if that wasn’t enough yet, the generous people from Sk8room will donate 20% of profits to Skateistan.
Lucid Skateboards are a company from the Northern Beaches of Sydney that have just launched their astonishing debut range of skateboards. Covering everything from longboards to shortboards, Lucid even have a special Fibreflex range (a unique blend of Canadian maple and fibreglass). From their site, you can pick up pre-made skateboards or purchase your deck and hardware separately if you’re feeling a little creative. Moderately priced, beautifully constructed and expertly finished … you should be glad they ship worldwide.
Inspired by skate and surf culture, TIMBER creates eyewear and accessories from skateboard ply. Their Surf Glasses are crafted from eco-friendly wood and bamboo, and inspired by early boards.

Select eyewear and accessories are available now in the Lost At E Minor online store.
Electric Coffin opened the doors to a new space in Seattle’s 1020 Building last night, hosting artists and skaters for a Marginal Way art show benefit. Marginal Way is a successful DIY skatepark project. Previously the park’s location was public property in disrepair and skaters took it upon themselves to clean it up. With the support of local businesses and Seattle’s Department of Transportation, DIY construction began in 2004. It’s now a legal skatepark. Respect.
