Concrete Wave Magazine! Collect your piece of Longboarding/Skateboard History with these vintage NOS (New Old Stock) stickers. Working with Skategeezer Michael Brooke for over 8 years was day after day skate stoke. I have never had so much fun working with someone as I have travelling and skating with Michael Brooke. Here is a snapshot of some of the amazing people and events Concrete Wave Magazine and Michael Brooke built for our skateboard industry. Rick Tetz
Quote from Buddy Carr Interview: Michael Brooke is a legend. This simply cannot be denied. You can cry, whine, squeal, and bitch all you want. But, deny? Deny, good chap, you cannot do.
Michae’s mantra is no less significant, especially as far as skateboarding is concerned. Michael is, after all, the guy that simply (and sincerely ) believes that all skateboards are good skateboards. Everyone should ride a skateboard, and there should be a skateboard for everyone. This, of course, ran headlong against the views of our established industry, and a great many skaters themselves, who thought that certain forms of skateboarding were stupid, or gay. Michael basically built the critical-mass paradigm that attacked that core philosophy, and attacked it head-on.
Everyone should ride a skateboard, and there should be a skateboard for everyone”. It’s now twenty years later. Take a good, long, hard look around. What do you see out there? Even his most ardent detractors make longboards, old-school boards, cruisers, slalom boards, freestyle boards… everything that they once hated and rallied against. That’s the landscape of Michael winning, right there. And everyone else wins as a result. Read Full Interview Here!
