We Made a Skateable Magazine | Video and Photos

12pm // 23.12.2016


When the good people at adidas Skateboarding invited us to join their 'Bring Your Build' challenge, we knocked our heads together to come up with a unique obstacle that we haven’t seen or skated before. It was soon decided that our contribution should involve a parking block, be slappy-friendly and good for a wallie.

We sketched some ideas that soon morphed into what looked like a magazine dropped flat on the centre spread, and unveiled it at the Gold Coast demo on adidas' Away Days Team Tour of Australia.
