Happy Holidays People!
A lot of people I know receive gifts for various holidays. To get into the season, I thought I would help everyone out by giving some suggestions on what to ask for. Just for the record, this is NOT a review. Some of the items on this list I have not used. The items are in no particular order.
Alright, here we go:
- Adidas Soccer Ghost Guards Shin Guards – 19.99
“Wait, what? Why is he saying these shin guards are great? He doesn’t even play soccer!” You may be thinking this, but seriously, if you skateboard, then you know how much it can hurt to fail a shuvit or powerslide. Honestly, I don’t know where these have been all my life. They comply with NOCSAE specifications, come in totally sick colors, and are packaged in a little bag with a zipper. Nice job, Adidas. These retail for about 20 dollars, but I bought mine at Sports Authority on sale for only 10.
2. Vans x Star Wars Skate Shoes – 60.00
Star. Wars. Vans. Enough said.
3. Tech Deck Longboards – 7.99
Unfortunately, it’s usually too cold to skate in December where I live. Also being unfortunate, good (and inexpensive) fingerboards are hard to find. Luckily, Tech Deck saves the day with their collection of longboards. Retailing for around 8 dollars, you can find them pretty much anywhere on the internet. Some of them have actual bearings. Even better, some have legitimate flex. (Sector 9)
4. Boss DS-1 Distortion Pedal – 49.99
One word – Bulletproof. I have a tiny little ten watt amp for my Squier Stratocaster, and when the built in distortion is on, it sounds fuzzy and weird. Now, when I turn this pedal on, the distortion is very clear and sounds incredible. 5 out of 5.
5. Sector 9 Marshmallows – 36.00
I don’t know why, but I think that food-themed wheels are cool. These are no exception. I have never actually used these wheels, but the reviews of them hold them in high regard. Just think about skating on marshmallows!
And that’s pretty much it. Hopefully more to come, but for now, see you guys later!
