What is Low ATL?

 

Over the past year or so, there has been a ton of talk and social media promotion using the phrase and the hashtag “Low Atl”. But, it seems that not too much is known about what exactly Low Atl is or means. I have had a number of people come up to me with a lot of the same questions. “What does “Low Atl” mean?” “Is that a brand?” “Isn’t that the same as Lowcard Magazine?”

 

Ambush Low Atl

 

In translation, the term “Low Atl” means family. To be “Low” means to be down. We are a family of people who truly love skateboarding and who come together for one common passion. I say “we” because we are all considered “Low Atl”. Even if you aren’t from or living in Atlanta. It is a family of skateboarders. We have all started somewhere, and no matter how good you are or are not, there will always be people who will have your back if you are legit. Your legitimacy in skateboarding can be defined in infinitely many ways based off of everyone’s individual standards, but to me your legitimacy is defined by your passion. We all had to be shown the ropes at some point. You can’t learn everything all on your own. But, rest assured that if you always stick with something you are truly passionate about, then you will learn as much as you can on your own. The rest comes from listening to the ones who have been doing it longer than you.  They have the most experience and have shown dedication to the art. Even in skateboarding, your elders deserve respect. Read More >

Stormy Pruett: 10 Years Deep

Rarely in life do you meet someone who is exactly the same on the outside as they are on the inside.  It’s not often that you come across an individual who acts the same in front of people as they do when no one is around. Or have your back when shit is on the line. Or live above the fray. It’s rare to find someone who is as good of a friend or better to you than you are to them. And IF you ever find that special person, consider yourself mighty lucky you are able to share 10 years with them.

This month marks Stormy‘s tenth year at Ambush. Throughout that time, Ambush and Stormy have grown together, evolved together and become synonymous with one another. So, how do you reward that kind of extended passion and loyalty? Forget the golden watch, its all about skateboarding, baby. Read More >

Mazza Mondays

Yo what’s up what’s good what’s happening? Nothing much over here just chillin’ with Stormy, Marvin, Brian, and Charlie at the shop today. Ready for the weekend to come up. Party, shred it up and other BS.

The Game of Skate is next weekend. I’d thought i’d go over a list of things of how to properly skate in a game of skate so we can make it an awesome enjoyable event for all of us.

1. Pop your tricks

2. SPEED. We don’t want any complaining when the judges don’t count your trick when you come to a complete stop when you land.

3. No pivots. Do your rotation tricks at FULL rotation. We understand you need to do a little bit of skirchin on some tricks. At the judges discretion though will determine if it counts or not. Read More >
