Temperatures are slowly dropping.  Football is back in full swing on the television.  It’s time to start thinking about booking an epic snowboarding trip for you and your buddies to take this winter while airfare is still cheap.  The mountain is calling.  We know you’ve got the itch!

Here is our list of items we’ve got coming in that you should keep an eye out for this season as you start thinking about updating your gear.  Consider this our version of the FBI’s “Most Wanted” list for slaying the mountain this year.  Check it out:

  1. Stomp Pads

Let’s face it, nobody wants to be the Jabroni holding up the lift line because you just had a garage sale getting off at the top.

Lift Jabroni

Save yourself the embarrassment and pick up a proper stomp pad.  We have fresh ones from your favorite brands like Burton, Volcom, Lib Tech, and Dakine…or from your new favorite stomp pad brand – Crab Grab.

March Radness is Coming!

What’s up everyone? Ambush is proud to announce that it will be hosting the first contest at the new Kennesaw Skatepark called March Radness. No mushy flat ground game of skate. This is REAL street/pool style skateboarding for your eyes to see. This is your chance to show Ambush what you got and show the City of Kennesaw why it was such a good idea building this park. Don’t wanna compete? It’s free to watch and come hang out with the Ambush crew. There will be tons of talented locals putting on a awesome show!  Big thanks to all the sponsors that help contribute to making this contest happen!

Check out the trailer to see just a glimpse of the action that will be going down!

Pedro Barros for Volcom

Two words: Pedro Barros. The Brazilian wonder-kid can’t legally by a pack of smokes yet but his skating is as mature as fine wine. Barros, already an X-Games gold medalist, rips street, tranny, vert, and is even fluent on a mega ramp. Needless to say this new edit from Volcom blew our minds a bit. My guess is that 2013 will be Barros’s biggest year to date.

The Times they are a Changin’

It has already been a year of change here at Ambush Board Co. and we are only a few months in. This past fall, the shop saw a serious remodel of the skate side of the store. With a new counter system, new Volcom and RVCA build outs, and updated concrete floors, things are looking good. Next up for Ambush is a total remodel of the wake and snow side. Construction began hard wood floors and will soon move into creating the most advanced wake and snow set up ever seen before. We are building a shopper friendly area that appeals to the novice all the way to advance rider. We are creating a unique boot try on area, custom displays from Liquid Force, Hyperlite, and Ronix, and a true place for all to come together and get everything they need to ride. So if you happen to be in the area, please stop by and see what we have gearing up for 2012. A bright new interior with the same great service. Hope to see you soon.

Sponsored

Being sponsored has become the holy grail of action sports. Some kids try their whole lives to get sponsored. Some succeed…some don’t. What if you could suddenly wave a magic wand get sponsored right now? Which company would you want to be sponsored by? What is your dream brand that you are dying to rep? Well…we asked the Ambush guys that same question.

 

Brian: Vans – “‘Cause you don’t have to buy clothing and shoes and s#!t. They got sweet flannels and make everything from skate shoes to snowboard boots.”

 

Brian’s favorite Vans product: Old Skool ’92 Pro (Ray Barbee/Forest Green)


Jake: Matix – “I like their jeans and they have a good team.”

Progress

The shop is still in shambles, but not for long. Boards are on the wall and the counters are fixed in their new spots. The carpet is all pulled up and once they buff out that glue, the ground will be so smooth you could skate on it. Just kidding, keep that outside.

The dudes from Volcom are also here throwing in their own build out for their killer apparel line. So by the end of the weekend, all you skate rats will have a brand new shop.

 

 

Ambush Game of Skate #16

Skateboarders are quite possibly the most enthusiastic people on the planet. I know we may seem spaced out, aloof, and disinterested, but that’s part of our charm. When it comes to skateboarding, we are all in.

The Ambush Game of Skate is the most consistently rock solid event in the Atlanta skateboard scene, and it is  the gusto of the participants that makes the contest what it is. No vibes here…just a couple hundred skateboarders pursuing their passion. Everyone was hanging out, rooting their friends on, and tapping their boards in respect for a banger trick. It’s as if we were all in this together and the competition was just a way to express our personal individuality throughout the day. And that’s what skateboarding is all about.
