Jay Jay Patterson Bids Farewell to Atlanta, Joins Ambush Alumni

Jay Jay's last big hurrah at Nick's Back Porch.Today marks a bittersweet landmark in the Ambush timeline.  Jay Jay Patterson, one of the most influential personalities we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, has officially flown South to Miami on a one way ticket.

“I came to the company in 2003, a scrawny kid with an awkward voice that loved skating,” Jay Jay explains.  “I was forced to challenge myself and will continue to do so.”

For those who don’t know, Jay Jay is the type of person who doesn’t set personal barriers for himself.  He goes out and gets what he wants and if he can’t, he figures out how.  That’s exactly what he’s doing now.  Thanks for everything JJ, we wish you all the success in the world. Read More >

This tool fits in your pocket and can assemble an entire skateboard

Last Fall, Leatherman Tools® a.k.a. “The Original American Tool Company” decided to put over thirty years of tool R&D into creating a line of pocket tools designed for skateboarders. The idea was to create a multi-tool that could assemble and disassemble an entire skateboard and still find a comfortable place in your pocket. Mission accomplished.

Last weekend one of our in-house skate wizards, Ben Mercer, decided to put a Letherman Grind to the test. After a lengthy morning session of skating and board building, Ben gives you his two cents on the Leatherman Grind.
