FREE SKATEBOARD STICKERS? ... OR JUST BUY THEM!

Here's a little story to help you out of a sticky situation.

It's funny, I was joking with one of my customers about doing a Goliath Update about stickers a week or two ago after they said all they had sold in the last couple of slow days was stickers, now I have some inspiration.


 

I shared this story on FB last week, it got a good response, so here it is.

"I was sitting in my office working on some flyers on the computer and could hear skateboarders schralping in the back lane.
I looked over the fence and there were a couple of young dudes after school trying their heart out to work out how to ollie up the gutter and grind the curbs.
It's a busy area so they had probably been kicked out of everywhere else.
Despite the noise (well, it's white noise to me and doesn't bother me, but the neighbors might think otherwise?) I let them go for a while then after about 20 minutes, I opened the back gate and approached them.
They had that 'here we go again' look like they were about to be given the boot.
All they did get for their trouble - was a handful of skate stickers each!
They looked confused, but kind of stoked."


What is it about skateboarders & these little pieces of sticky plastic, ink & paper.

I've still got a little stash of my favorites I picked up over the last 25 years. I even follow one of the worlds biggest collectors based in Milwaukee USA on FB and it always blows my mind when he posts pics of rare and sought after sticker.
I sent him some of my doubles with a request for a certain sticker I had 20 years ago and lost. He sent me back a T-Shirt and some stickers and a promise to let me know if he ever found that illusive sticker.
Check out http://www.skateboard-stickers.com/ if you are a sticker tragic like me, add him as a friend on FB for a sticker of the day.

Anyways, Goliath always has a great stockpile of stickers, we sell them in assorted packs of 10, 30 or 50 units as well as some Brand only ready made packs.
You can allocate which brands & designs you like or just get a random pack.
Whichever way you go, you'll have a cabinet full of key items that will move any time a young (or Old) skater is in store with a couple of bucks burning a hole in their pocket.

ELEPHANT BRAND SKATEBOARDS - NOW AVAILABLE IN OZ!

What will it take for skateboarding to jump the shark this time around?

I love it when styles get blended, and skaters just get out there and enjoy skateboarding for what it really is.

Like when you go to the park and some old cat rocks up with an 80's boat and the kids think "how the hell can he ride that thing?"… Then proceeds to destroy the park with moves the kids have never seen.

Or the dude on a longboard decides to slap a curb or throw a flip or two into the repertoire. The purists hate it… but it's all just skateboarding.

Well that's what ELEPHANT BRAND SKATEBOARDS are all about, and the shops that have dared to be different and stock the brand are re-ordering more & more as this brand gains traction.

We have 5 new boards arriving this next week along with all models topped up for 2013!

BERN HELMETS - ASA 2063:2008


I have been racing around with the new range of BERN HELMETS and have had a great reaction with a a lot of accounts jumping straight on.

The new range features the MENS MACON & LADIES BRIGHTON, both now available ASA 2063 : 2008 certified for on road cycle use, they have a super low "SINK FIT" which makes them great for skateboarding and all types of cycling.

If your not familiar with BERN HELMETS here are a few FAQ's.

Are BERN HELMETS from Switzerland?


No they are from Massachusetts USA.

Aren’t BERN Snowboard helmets?


No BERN is a safety gear company that makes gear for all action sports applications.

What is the difference between the MENS MACON & LADIES BRIGHTON helmets?

Essentially they are the same, the venting on the ladies helmets is a little curvier and the mens more angular.

Why should I stock BERN HELMETS?


We off a great range of solid colours and have a couple (Purple, Cyan, Cobolt, Flouro Yellow) that are not available from other manufacturers.
We offer an extensive size range from XS 52-54cm to XL 59-60.5cm (and YES, XXL & XXXL models will drop in 2013!)
The MACON & BRIGHTON can both be fitted with our cool Summer Comfort Baseball cap style peak.

LADERA SKATEBOARDS - 2013 AUSTRALIAN RANGE

It's the same old story. A good skateboard isn't cheap & a cheap skateboard isn't good!
