We sold some bamboo skateboard decks to a school for an art project and this is what they came up with…
Benjamin Friedman Middle School in Taunton, MA - Mrs. Borges is the teacher! Great job kids!!
Marty, our intern from Canada (da yooper) was forced around the office and street with a bow and arrow to his head to perform strange photos with our bamboo skateboard with the capped langur graphic. He smiled politely most of the time! Enjoy the photos of us having fun at the office… just a normal Monday in Oceanside.
Click to read an interview with Ron Stebenne of Oceanside, California BambooSK8 talking about the ecological benefits of bamboo as a superior choice for building skateboards. Thank you transworld.

Guinness World Record holding (Most gigs in a 12 hour period) London-based punk powerhouses Buck Brothers are the greatest thing to come out of a Buddhist Disco since pacifist whack-a-mole. Their sophomore effort “We Are Merely Filters” has the same infectious hook-driven melodies with hilarious lyrics filled with far-spanning references and witty wordplay that was featured in Me.
Although, going through several line-up changes over the years and having more drummers than Spinal Tap. The Buck Brothers have found gold in their current line up consisting of the only original member Andy Duke (Vocals and bass), and new members Craig Welsh (Drums and vocals) and Dom Beckford (Guitar and vocals).
“We are Merely Filters” is an all out assault on your brain. Perfectly mixed, it can be enjoyed waiting for the bus with headphones, or even better by going to one of their concerts. You’ll find that this Brit pop/punk/rock mix is bound to have you dancing halfway through the first track.
From the bloody brilliant “All I Want To Do” with its mantra “Life is cool. Religion sucks. All I want to do is dance.” To the non-sense “Pop Muzik” that echoes DEVO and The B52’s. Buck Brothers latest is bound to have you screaming “Encore! Encore!”
Stand Out tracks:
“You’re so Good, Good, Good you’re great” –A chronicle of the downfall of a public figure, its tragic story mirrors the life of the modern celebrity.
“When I Look At You. (All I Think About Is Sex)” With lyrics like “Your love may be king/Your love may be queen/But we’re not in a monarchy/And thanks to civilisation Procreation’s recreation/We’re more than just the birds and bees” how can you not love this song?
“Deeply Shallow”- A comment on modern society, you’ll find yourself humming it later on the day.

We’d like to thank all the wonderful people who came out and supported our fundraiser at the OC Tavern in San Clemente this past weekend. Special thanks to the bands Frame of Mind, OFFWHITE, & Soul Rebel Alliance for performing. This fundraiser was set up to help offset the costs of an after school program we are developing with another agency for 3 schools in the San Diego area. Stay tuned to another event very soon!!
