Far from the epicentre of the skate industry, a group of Cypriot engineers, designers and skate enthusiasts have created a revolutionary new deck. Capsule uses similar material to that used in aerospace capsules - hence the name and groovy space themed graphics.

Surf teams from around the world converged on Biarritz, France for the ISA World Surfing Games earlier this year.
Mid July saw the Stab x Volcom's concept shoot grace our social media screens. Take Bali's stellar waves, mix in a magic crew, and then ramp it up ten fold with a large floating dock for the guys to launch off. It went mental.

For those of you who dread the last days of snow season, the LEIF board gives year round pavement snowboarding!
Launch Snowboards have a cool Kick starter campaign running that needs some attention. They aim to launch their excellent 'easy in, easy out' bindings with a little push from the crowd... and have ALREADY smashed their targets.
KICKSTARTER DISCOUNTS UNTIL 10th FEB! Choose the Alpha for mega snow moving or the original Stealth model - designed with action sports in mind. Both take snow shovels to a whole other level, are interchangeable and can be packed up small to take on adventures.

These USA made decks are tougher and lighter than most. Check out the beasty test these guys created to prove their creation's legit!
In case you missed it! This clip produced by Samsung takes technology right into the water with a surfboard that integrates a smartphone. It's designed to assist pros during training, but we can see why it's received a hefty number of dislikes - many of us surf to escape the tech. Reckon the clip is still worth your 3 mins. Interesting concept if you're good enough to have a coach like Medina...
A fresh, more sustainable approach to decks is coming out of Finland, where a team of skaters have taken inspiration for their brand from the early Northern European logging industry. Their old-meets-new thinking has created a board that is durable, recyclable AND water proof. Win win win!
