Skate Or Die

Skate or Die

Subscribe to Touching Base on iTunes and SoundCloud.

I quit skateboarding 12 years ago. Dave has lower back problems. This is the story of what happens when two men in their 30s dust off their old decks for National Skate Day and try to hack it with two dudes who should probably be sponsored by one of those dope companies we used to buy shoes from. Like Adio and Etnies.

To some, skating is a hobby. To us, it was (and is) a way of life.

Those guys we made look bad in the video? That’s our Director of Inside Sales, Daniel, and Connor, our Marketing Designer. Everyone knows botched ollies are the new 360 flips.

Buy the official Deal Closers Only Hat that Dave’s wearing in the video on Man Outfitters, where you can also buy the Outdoor Voices joggers Will is wearing.
