SquareOne Skateboards | Product Review x Giveaway

Square One Skateboards & Steezy Accessories is a new company out of the Tampa Bay area. They’ve got you covered with decks, t-shirts, hats, beanies, retro shades, and Steezy griptape. The decks are 7-Ply 100% Canadian Hard Rock Maple and the Steezy grip is easy to put on and is also air bubble resistant. Quality goods with a fresh approach. My personal favorite is the NES Controller deck…brings back some memories. Anyway, be on the lookout for these dudes, they have been sponsoring a lot of events and making the rounds. Not to mention, they have been growing a pretty ripping team of riders. Make sure to check them out @

Bradenton “Riverwalk” Skatepark

Approximate future location of Bradenton "Riverwalk" Skatepark.

 17,000 sq. ft. of concrete! That is what the new Bradenton “Riverwalk” Skatepark is getting! Now, the important part…exactly how to use that 17,000 sq. ft. Make sure to stay tuned to the Bradenton Riverwalk Skatepark facebook page for all of the latest updates. Also be sure to share your ideas about the design of the park and who you would like to see build it (Oh, I don’t know, Team Pain for example)! It is very crucial that this park be designed and built properly…there is nothing worse than a poorly designed park built by some random contractor!

Concrete Skateparks for GT Bray and Blackstone

A few weeks ago, the Bradenton City Council voted unanimously to approve the final proposal of the Riverwalk Project, which includes a concrete skatepark. Now that the ball is rolling in the right direction with that park, its time to turn the focus on two existing Manatee County skate parks. GT Bray and Blackstone are not proper skate parks. These skate parks are perfect examples of what happens when the city or the county doesn’t consult with the local skateboarders and include them in the design process to build them a park that they actually want to skate. Unfortunately, this kind of “slapping a bunch of pre-fab ramps on an old tennis court or roller-hockey rink” crap happens all the time. What you are left with is a park with no flow and limited options that skaters are easily bored with…a waste of time and money! So, to start, let’s show Manatee County that these two skateparks need to be updated to adequate concrete skateparks. Join the Concrete Skate Parks For GT Bray and Blackstone Facebook page and get involved! Make sure to check the facebook page and No Comply Magazine often for updates as this moves along. Next…Pinellas County skate parks!
