Evan Aamodt of Valkyrie Truck Co. goes in-depth about his company, it’s team of skilled riders, their setups and what direction Valkyrie is heading. Read on for a very interesting look at one of the industry’s favorite truck manufacturers.
Evan Aamodt is the owner and operator of Valkyrie Trucks. We got some time to sit down with him and discuss how Valkyrie got started, the struggles of growing a brand in the current environment, which team riders to watch and some future plans.
We are thankful for the time he took with use to discuss in great detail all things Valkyrie!
We had an awesome chat with Bodhi Keen the owner and operator of Slide Perfect, based in UK. Bodhi is a veteran skater in the UK scene and has put in a lot of work to help it thrive in this current economy. He put the sweat and blood in building Slide Perfect, so check out their new 2019 line up and support the boys.
We are very excited to sit down with Jeff Vyain the owner and innovator of Pantheon Longboards to discuss the ups and downs of being a longboard company. Jeff has been skating since he was a kid, got into both downhill and freeride and now makes his own boards for everyone to shred. He offers a wide range of experience and we appreciate him giving us some time to pick his brain. Remember to follow Pantheon as their 2019 line up is just around the corner.
We recently sat down with Tanner Morelock to talk about Descent Boards and what they are all about. Tanner currently rides for Descent, Venom and Rogue as a formidable force in the downhill scene, definitely pushing the limit of the slalom style. He helped design for Choomah and Skyline 1 with Sanctum Collective. Tanner helped the design the BIG RED board shape and the first concave with w concave, flares, rocker, and steeper concave for Descent. So Tanner isn’t new to building boards and running a brand.
I recently had the chance to talk with Bonzing founder Austin Graziano about the company, their boards and what makes them so unique. They’re out to make a positive impact on both the Earth and skate scene with an approach that is all their own. Timeless skateboards using skater supplied artwork and sustainable, FSC certified wood.
