TOY MACHINE - 2O YEARS SINCE THE RELEASE OF 'WELCOME TO HELL' ... NEW DECKS TOO!

It's been 20 years! Can you believe it?


It was 2006 and Toy Machine released what has become many skateboarders favorite videos of all time. It was pretty groundbreaking stuff at the time with a killer team that included:

Jamie Thomas, Ed Templeton, Donny Barley, Mike Maldonado, Satva Leung, Elissa Steamer and Brian Anderson.

It really was what propelled the professional careers of these amazing skateboarders.

Jenkem Magazine is celebrating this milestone with a weeks worth of stories and clips and out takes, so take 8 and half minutes out of your day and travel back to 1996 when your hero's were younger, the footage quality was crappier and pants were baggier. Bask in the warm brainwashing glow of the imagery from your favorite bloodsucking skateboard company Toy Machine.

ALVA SKATES - August 2016 Drop

It's quite possible I've sold more Alva 77's than any other single deck model over the last 10 years, and for good reason... It's one of the most iconic decks ever made. We have a bunch of new 70's re-issues dropping in August. Hit up your local shop and get them to lock an order in for one for you today.

We also have 3 new ALVA X POWER STATION wheels coming in with this drop in great complimentary colours to the decks. 58, 60 & 62mm.


ABOUT: ALVA SKATES

In 1977, at age 19, Tony Alva struck out on his own starting his skateboard company, Alva Skateboards. Alva’s company was the first owned and operated by a skateboarder as well as being one of the first to use layered maple plywood for the skate decks. Tony Alva was the first skateboarder to successfully market himself as a brand name; becoming the prototype for a modern professional skateboarder.

2016 see's ALVA SKATEBOARDS still kicking and screaming with a line up of quality USA made decks and wheels built to ride but also perfect for and highly demanded by collectors around the world. Every true skateboarder has at least one Alva deck in their quiver.

STREET PLANT BRAND DECKS - August 2016 Drop.

Street Plant has found a new Aussie home with Goliath Industries and we have a bunch of new decks arriving August.

ABOUT: STREET PLANT SKATEBOARDS

What goes around comes around... again. Mike V's not so new revised company STREET PLANT has found a new home at Goliath and is looking good.

All decks are pressed by PS STIX and graphics are hand screen printed. Great shapes and quality lumber genuinely rider tested and put through their paces. The shapes are really good, directional boards that ride like a regular modern board so you get the best of both worlds. Love or hate Mike V, he does a great job of putting a functional quality deck together.

POCKET PISTOLS - New Decks for July 2016!

ROUND 2... FIGHT!

In an unusual move for Goliath, here is a second round of POCKET PISTOLS DECKS in as many months.

Top notch timber master-crafted in Southern California USA and proudly screen printed the old way by Screaming Squeegees.

Stock is extremely limited so if you snooze you lose! Don't miss out.

POCKET PISTOLS - DEAD ROCKERS SERIES
It all started with the reissue of Jason Lee's graphic from the 90's in the BLAST FROM THE PAST SERIES. The deck features a tribute to David Bowie in his Aladdin Sane phase, then Mr Bowie upped and left us, making the Pedro reissue deck extremely sought after. Recent times have seen some of our most cherished and influential musicians and artists disappear and POCKET PISTOLS is paying tribute with a new full series of DEAD ROCKER TRIBUTE DECKS. You know the names and if you are a fan, grab em' quick. In true skateboarding plagiarism style, it's only a matter of time before we get a cease and desist letter.
POCKET PISTOLS - BLAST FROM THE PAST SERIES

2ND ROUND: For the July 2016 drop:

IT'S NOT ME : OOPS : LET EM' BURN : CHRISTO : CHATMAN EXPERIENCE

NEW: PEDRO BARROS CORNER POCKET (90's Mullen Graphic)

The Pocket Pistols team have been decked out with new models featuring a tribute to classic Rocco era graphics. Did you know? Screaming Squeegees who print all Pocket Pistols Decks actually printed the original Rocco company graphics back in the early 1990's! These represent period correct manufacturing and printing techniques on modern directional shaped decks.
They were built to be thrashed, but make perfect wall hangers and collectors items.
POCKET PISTOLS JULY 2016 DROP

Jimmy Arrighi Leaves RVCA
October 21, 2011 By Blair Alley

RVCA co-owner Jimmy Arrighi announced today that he is leaving the brand for a new, unannounced endeavor. Cheers Jimmy, and good luck in your new gig!

“It’s been a great run with RVCA, but after 10 years as co-owner I have decided to part ways. I want to thank them for everything they have done for me over the years. My goal when I joined was to help the brand get a stronghold on the skate market and I believe I’ve achieved that and more. I am very proud of what I have accomplished from the humble beginnings in the garage, to the multi-million dollar brand it is today. I will be moving on to a new endeavor, which will be announced soon.“—Jimmy Arrighi

 OK Jimmy  we see your making killer clothing , how did you end up rolling with the name Eswic ?
The name isn't so much of a defined meaning as the company in a whole is more of a group of friends who didn't like the direction of the old place (after the corporate sale) and felt that we could branch out and do something that was more in our control - something we could all have a say in and be proud of.


You used to be TM for RVCA?
                                                                                                                
I was, yeah… I actually was the the first employee back in the garage days and a minority owner. 
 Who was your biggest nightmare on that team ?
                                                                                       
Honestly I wouldn't say there were any nightmares on the team but… the closest thing to a nightmare for me was a trip to Australia with Corey Kennedy who decided to turn it into an all day and night drinking trip. That was the closest I'd have ever come to losing it.

It got so bad that on one of the legs of the trip in Tasmania he was bombed out  of his mind at the airport and the check-in lady took it upon herself to lump me in with his drunk ass and made me promise her that I wouldn't let him drink any more or WE couldn't board the flight. So about 30 mins before boarding, I get a page over the intercom and they want me to come to the check-in gate to see how Mr. Kennedy is doing. I assure them that he's never been better and he's practically sobered up. Little did they know that he continued the party into the terminal and was literally stumbling around dragging his iPhone  behind him on the floor with his headphones in his ears. I'm not even sure if he was listening to anything but it was hilarious.

Long story short, we board the flight and he's passed before the plane even took off.

Who is it now ? Are you TM for Eswic?
                                                                                            
There's not a single nightmare on ESWIC. Yes, I do the team along with a million other things.

Did you keep one of Leo Romero team manager boards?
                                                                                                 
Ha! Yeah, I still have one of those things.  


How did you become Worlds Best Dad? Did you go in a competition?
                                                                                           
That’s a funny one. I actually didn't give myself that name. Sure, I would joke around about it with people when they'd ask what I was going to be doing later that night or over the weekend - I'd always just reply that I'd be "doing worlds best dad stuff".

The guy responsible for officially giving me that name was James Hardy. It was early on in the instagram days and he kept telling me that I needed to get on there cause I could make fun of tons of people and I kept refusing so one day, James grabbed my phone and set it all up for me against
my will, then he handed my phone back with a chuckle and said "look at your name". And that's how the whole worlds best dad thing was spawned. 


Sports shoes or Skate shoes ?

Skate shoes.
 
Do you just make up shizz when you do those Thrasher vox pop interviews ?


I'd honestly have to say that I usually go in there with 2-3 things that I really want to say but then the majority of that stuff is based on just being there and there reactions.  

Whats your time frame for global take over ? 

                                                                                        
Ha! The sooner the better cause these kids aren't cheap.
