Spotlight on..




Shredder's Lair is a skateboard, apparel, and hardware goods company coming out of Lancaster, California. I caught up with CEO and co-founder Steve Hansen recently to get the low down on the company and what they're all about. Check it out..

How did Shredder's Lair come about?

From the love of pure shredding of anything you can possibly skate on and wanting to create a product to represent our love for the ART OF SHREDDING. We were unsatisfied with the lack of a pure 100% raw for skateboarders by skateboarders company with all American made products for the highest quality at shredder friendly prices.

How did you come up with the name?

Shredder's Lair found us. We had the spot where shredder's came together before and after sessions escaping the societies "norm". Here we are able to focus and dedicate ourselves to the art and life style of shredding!

Who's on the team?

Shredder's Lair has a very diverse and unique team. The "SL ARMY" consists of Jesse Hotchkiss, Anthony Perkins, Joe Warr, Kevin Scott, and Mike "Chomp" Eckmann. Each one of the Shredders Army riders bring a different flavor of smooth, fast, and technical skateboarding for a diverse and extremely radical group!

You guys are working on a full length video, right?

We are currently in the works for THE ART OF SHREDDING shredders lair first full length DVD.



One more question, what does Shredder's Lair offer that's different from what other companies are doing?

Shredder's Lair uses American made products. Our boards are pressed in Ontario, CA using the highest quality Canadian Hard Rock Maple veneers. Along with our high quality product we have a great team and staff that all bleed skateboarding and want to deliver the best product possible to ensure the shredding never stops!

What skateboarding will look like in the 2020 Olympics

After reading the recent Sal Barbier Interview on the Chrome Ball Incident, (which is fantastic by the way), and also perusing the recent Thrasher Magazine article on skateboarding in the Olympics, I became curious as to what the proposed format is going to be like. Being that there have historically been many different competitive formats in skateboarding's long history (street, vert, mega ramp, luge, freestyle, etc. etc.), I couldn't help but be curious. After pondering the different possibilities I was able to track down someone from the International Olympic Committee (IOC)  who had some answers.

First how did the International Olympic Committee (IOC) come to the decision to include skateboarding? Was it someone on the committee who proposed it or if it was brought forth by a third party?

The addition of Skateboarding to the Olympic programme in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 resulted from an 18-month process called the OCOG Proposal, where the host city (in this case, Tokyo)…

All Hail..

Repost from.. I don't know, few years ago I guess. Early Cardiel stuff really had an impact on me. Dude just went for it so hard.  Crazy that I live in the same town as him now and have come across him a few times.. My buddy that I go skate with all the time did physical therapy with him after being shot head in the head twice (yes, you read that correctly). Trip out on that..

Tom and Alex

Feeling a bit heavy after that last post... so taking a slight detour.

Great flick of the legendary Tom Penny by the equally talented Arto Saari. And Alex Olson...well, not quite sure what to say about this ollie. It doesn't make sense how someone could be capable of ollieing that high.

 Hopefully I will have the chance to go skate this weekend. My friend from Brazil Dan is in town. Such a character.. apparently he's been working on a fishing boat in Alaska for the last few months. He calls me up put of the blue and first thing he says is "hey, do you have socks and a shoestring I can borrow?" I meet him at the skatepark, he's in borrowed clothes, board, and shoes.. and it's apparent that he hasn't lost a step in what he's able to do on a skateboard. Nice ,(but also intimidating), to be around someone so talented, it pushes you to try harder.
