Nollie Flip Skate Stool: Sit On Your Passion

So you eat, sleep, and breathe skateboarding–but what about sitting? Cross that sedate but pretty darn frequent life activity off your list with the Nollie Flip Skate Stool ($250). This suitably styled stool features a Canadian maple wooden frame and skateboard for you to rest your hind quarters on when you’re not standing on one. Choose from white, black, dark brown, or natural–or as we like to call that last color, NUDE.

Nike + Levi’s 511 Skateboarding Denim

Skaters have created fashion trends throughout the years, so it’s only fitting that the fashion industry get off its lazy keester (let’s bring that word back!) and return the favor. Nike and Levi’s have partnered to produce high performance denim specifically for skateboarding. 511 Skateboarding Denim ($198) integrates Nike’s Dri-FIT and vectran technologies with Levi’s classic sturdy construction, giving skaters a stylish and functional option for their lower extremities.

No Skateboarding by Mathisa Fennetaux

Check out portraits of 70 of the most influential skaters in No Skateboarding by Mathisa Fennetaux. This photography book spans 10 years in the making and captures portraits, rather than the obligatory actions shots, of these skaters, showing the men behind the skate tricks. For each skater, Fennetaux had one sitting and 24 shots of each subject. Skaters involved in the project include Rodney Mullen, Tony Alva and Mike McGill.

The release coincides with an exhibition of the prints at Colette in Paris. Only 1000 will be released and 100 are limited edition. Each limited edition book is numbered and signed by the author, encased in a light blue clamshell box and includes a black and white hand-processed print by Fennetaux of either McGill or Alva. Preorder either the regular release or limited edition.
