Check out Domain Apparel’s collab series featuring “All I Need Skateboards“, “Colonial Ramp Tech“, and us “No Comply Magazine”. All companies having core roots in skateboarding. Check out the brief bio on each of the small businesses below.
Domain x No Comply Magazine “The Keepers”
For those who don’t know us…. we’re a Florida underground mag featuring some of the best up and coming talent the state of Florida has to offer. Owned and operated by Nick Nicks a skateboarder, photographer, husband, and proud father. No Comply Mag is focused on highlighting the endless talent the great state of Florida seems to produce.
We’re hyped to collaborate with Orlando based clothing brand Domain Apparel. Owned and operated by skateboarder and entrepreneur Nick Murphy.
We have a pretty killer sequence of Domain owner Nick Murphy doing a lengthy backside blunt slide through the corner at the Maitland Quarters back in 2010. Curious to see that sequence? Click the link here to scope it.
Domain x Colonial Ramp Technologies “East Coast Excellence”
Owned and operated by Dougie Death, New England’s DIY mastermind and keeper of Hell Gate in Allston, MA. If you don’t know Doug… you’re blowing it. This Og punk rocker has been barging pools with some of skateboarding’s most known while you were in diapers. The frontman of numerous bands and a wizard on the plank. The definition of “100% Skateboarder” and not to mention a UMass graduate.
Doug’s always traveling looking for that new spot to build or destroy. Domain’s “East Coast Excellence” CRT x Domain collab is a tribute to Doug’s dedication and selfless contribution to skateboarding on the East Coast. Printed on a mustard yellow fine jersey tee with discharge ink, that sets right into the shirt. Meaning it’s printed right into the tee leading to no cracks or wear on this print. Like Doug’s craftsmanship, these tees will last the test of time. Follow the link here to get yours before they’re gone.
Domain x All I Need Skateboards “East Coast Connection”
“All I Need Skateboards” is owned and operated by professional skateboarder, Anthony Shetler and based out of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Shetler has been pro for companies like 5 Boro, Zoo York, and currently World Industries. Being featured in Zoo York’s “State of Mind” video and numerous appearances in skate mags. He’s an all-around good dude and his positivity is unmatched. Being born in Brockton, MA. A rough city and knowing his fair share of hardships and adversities, Anthony’s rise in skateboarding is an inspiration to many on the East Coast.
Another 100% Skateboarder who’s always out in the trenches and dropping hammers. We’re stoked to have gotten the opportunity to collaborate with such a rad East Coast brand. For more on “All I Need” check out their website and subscribe to their Podcast.
Domain “Great Seal of Florida”
Well, this little gem was created by Domain co-owner Pearson Castner. The great state of Florida knows how to party. Check out those Florida natives getting their rage on. What else is there to say about this badass tee other than go buy it and support a local dealer!
Domain’s collab series is available at select retailers. Current retailers include Galactic G Skate Shop, Mad Skate Shop, and East 4th Skate Shop. That list keeps on growing… hit up one of the core shops or head over to www.domainpremiumapparel.com to get the goods.

Gary Swenson (Co-Owner & Co-Founder) of Freshly Squeezed grew up just a couple hours north of St. Petersburg in Brooksville, FL. You could have found him skating the old Island Skatepark in Mazaryktown any day of the week. His passion for skateboarding eventually led to a passion for streetwear and sneakers. So Gary packed up and moved to southern California, where he completely immersed himself right in the middle of the streetwear and sneaker industry,living and breathing it for over a decade. California is also where Gary met his fiance Victoria Phipps (Co-Owner, Co-Founder, and Backbone of the operation). Recently, Gary and Victoria moved back to Florida and decided it was time to do their own thing.
Freshly Squeezed is a streetwear shop whose mission is simple…to consistently bring the newest and freshest gear to St. Petersburg. Whether it is a bigger, more well-known brand, or a small, local, or up-and-coming brand, Gary & Victoria’s passion for all of them is just the same. Not only do they live it, work it, and wear it, but they also have personal relationships with most of the lines that they carry. With their 10 + years of experience and personable and professional attitudes, you will leave not only happy and looking fresh, but educated as well. Gary & Victoria meet once a week for strategy meetings and their current future plans for Freshly Squeezed are to continue to grow and to develop their own line. So, please do yourself a favor and get over to Freshly Squeezed, chat with Gary and/ or Victoria, and get yourself (or someone else) tightened up with some “fresh” new gear.
Freshly Squeezed’s current lines include: HUF, FUCT, The Hundreds, Lime Almost Lemon, CBNC, So It Seems, and No Comply Skateboard Mag.
Stay out of the mall and SUPPORT LOCAL! Get down to Freshly Squeezed this Friday for their “Black Friday Sale”…Everything in the store is 25% off! Yep…everything! – Nicks

I was holding on to these two photos for the purpose of using them in the first print issue of No Comply Skateboard Mag. In January of 2013, the mag will be 2 years old. I really wanted to release the first print issue of the mag in January in conjunction with the 2 Year Anniversary. But, over the last few weeks I have been doing a lot of thinking. I have unfortunately, come to the conclusion at this point, that I am not going to be doing a print issue of the mag. At least, not for now. This doesn’t mean that it is totally out of the equation. It just means that, based on where I have placed my priorities in life at the present moment, it just doesn’t make the list. I have decided to focus my efforts (After Family, Friends, and Work) on continuing to evolve the website, shooting more photos, learning how to shoot video, and on growing my new apparel and accessories brand No Comply.
That being said, I am stoked more and more every day on how the mag has grown and on all of the rad people that I have met (and reconnected with) over the past two years as a result. It’s also really cool to hear all of the positive feedback from people that I meet. That means a lot! Thank you. Anyway, I hope everyone continues to enjoy the mag. Cheers! -Nicks

Today is No Comply Skateboard Mag’s 1st Anniversary, and coincidentally, an interview that I did recently with Carl Wallin over at Action Sports Now went live today. I am really stoked on the interview…it feels really good to be appreciated for all of your hard work, rather than used. I have met a lot of really cool new people over the last year, and even reconnected with some old friends that I hadn’t seen in years! Thank you to everybody that has supported me and No Comply over the last year. I’m looking forward to lots of new things to come in 2012. – Nicks.
