Syndicate…. is the embodiment of the culture that chose us. I grew up in what I would consider the “golden era” of skateboarding, in that I was aware and influenced at a young age in the 80’s, became an active participant in my teenage / adult years, and am now honored to keep up and affect change as a store owner of 20+ years. The Syndicate group highlights these very things — showing respect to the past - taking that history and rebuilding it into a strong current story line - and setting the tone for the future by integrating new technologies, ideas and relationships. It is a kindred spirit in this ever changing environment. We consider the Syndicate crew, both past and present, a part of our extended family, and treat the brand as our own.
It is a rare thing to be able to look at the back catalog and grow more and more fond of literally each and every release. For this I am grateful, to be able to participate and contribute to a small degree, and celebrate the skateboarding, musicians, artists and brand builders that helped to shape the person I have become.

Album is finished and produced physically. We did it. Releasing it at the end of April with a super sick show. Can’t wait.
I’ve never been the type to say what skateboarding should or shouldn’t be. That’s the best pat of it. That each person gets to decide for themselves. However, this is my favorite kind.
Trying to add a played for my band’s tumblr. anyone got a suggestion of a good way to do it?
