ASR IS DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The vibe was mellow and good but we didn’t see hardly any buyers walking around – proof that the economy still sucks! We did catch up with many old friends, which is always great.

BambooSK8 will be at the Maloof Money Cup at the Orange County Fair in the KICKER booth from Wednesday-Sunday this week.
BambooSK8 will be at the US OPEN in Huntington Beach this weekend.
BambooSK8 will be walking around the ASR crossroads trade show next Saturday 14th.
BambooSK8 will be at the VANS Warped Tour in San Diego on the 10th and Pomona on the 11th. Stop by the CONCRETE WAVE booth.
BambooSK8 will not be displaying their products at the ASR trade show in February. We have made a strategic decision to put our money into alternative ways such as our support of a booth at the Vans Warped Tour this summer. We are planning to visit ASR/Crossroads on Wednesday February 3rd though and would be happy to meet with all interested shops, distributors and individuals. You can meet us near the Starbucks around noon. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
ASR – where do we start? Smaller than ever… You could literally walk it all in a day and be done. But what fun would that be? Lucky for us, we had a booth with other green companies in the ASEC green room, full of carnival surprises. It seemed we created a lot of excitement this year for our new 100% bamboo longboards, and of course our new 100% and 70% bamboo short decks. People were also excited to learn about the Green Washed Ritual music project – check out our music page for more details.
Our booth – bamboo fence, bamboo seats, bamboo poles, recycled wood and metal, decks suspended by fishing line, etc.

You will find BambooSK8 at the Blackbox Distribution Crossroads retail show this coming week on Wednesday 21st. The event will feature about 40 different brands in the skateboard industry. This is a major shift to get skateboarding out of ASR or at least it seems like a political move. Anyhow, the event will run from the morning and into the evening, being open to the public after 6pm. So come on down and skate the massive mystery/zero ramp and say hello to all of us at BambooSK8, although we won’t have a booth – just walking around with 100% brand new bamboo decks.

Earlier this year, we attended the 1st of its kind – the IASC industry summit at Camp Woodward West. The importance of this event was all the top brands and manufacturers in the industry to discuss key issues such as the creation of more skateparks, environmental/sustainability – going green, how to make ASR better, dealer/shop issues, government regulations, and so much more. The initial speaker the first night was Pierre, owner of Sole Technology. The highlight though was a guy from Harley Davidson who helped turn their company around years ago - his presentation was very inspiring and fostered a lot of thinking about the similarities between chartering a Harley Davidson and skating your favorite brand. The 3 day event was largely successful and we enjoyed skating, bowling, and other fun activities, and most importantly networking.
