What Happened to Foundry Skateboarding?

Seriously what happened? I know your asking ;)

Just kidding. Well FsB is still operational, but at the moment we are not going to focus on skating. We are going to work out some issues that we have as a brand and come back with a vengeance!

Thank you for everything. We will let you know when we plan to recoup ourselves.

Great Spot That I Drove over Everyday

On my way to class I drive over a bridge. I do this everyday without thinking anything of it. Today I took notice to the hill in front of it, that the drainage ramp was smooth and that it seemed to go all the way under the bridge.

A few hours passes and when the time came to go home and pass over it one more time, I stopped. I parked my car in a random field walked over and instantly ran back for my board.

Down the smooth mellow ramp is a steep drop to what can only be called the essence of skating. under a bridge with and aqua duct cleared out from a recent rain, I realized why skating has yet to fade. It is these moments that make skating great, even though it was random and if it rains the spot will become unskatable. That spot will always be special. Up and down nice slopes in and out of pilers dodging rocks, down massive hills, and of course some metal scrap that made its way under the bridge.

Send me a picture of your special spot.

The worlds largest skate baord

This is a pretty awesome video. I just want to know how much it cost him to make this board!

Granted its pretty awesome but I know for a fact Foundry would have just given away a lot of gear instead of making a giant board. Whatever, this is awesome and I shouldn't take that away from him.

That being said, what would you do with a giant skateboard? Maybe the mega mini? jk

Skateboarding Blues

Have you ever been skating and asked yourself... why am I doing this right now? Lately I've been really fed up with skating. It might be that the skate park is getting old, or it could be that I really need to learn something new. What ever it is it sucks massively.

I think that the worse thing about skating is that you can never do something for the first time again. You have to progress in order to get that feeling again. Its like an addiction it really pulls you through the crap when you can't get anything else down.

That being said. I have to ask, is winter getting on anyone else or is it just me?

These guys are pretty good.

Check out where they skate, some pretty amazing stuff they found. Anyone know of anywhere like that?
