Come to spend 1 hour with us in the bastard bowl or share with your friends. It’s FREE but space is limited… hurry up if interested.
We at the bastard store definitely took so long to start this program because we always had a sort of repulsion for schools and teachers (based on our personal experience both in skateboarding and in the wider learning field).
On the other hand we had so many requests over the years for lessons, schools, training and all sorts of HowTos (yes, people love them!) that the pressure was too much not to handle this matter. Also we’ve seen lately that the environment is over populated with all sorts of “skate teachers” appointed by some kind of “official organizations” pretending to tell you what is good or not and how. Even basing the teaching on some invincible method where you learn by not making mistakes.
Well… we think that’s mostly bullshit and we hope that you will soon learn to fall, rise and fall again being able one day to even build your own obstacles to overcome, enjoying the journey and not worrying about the arrival.
So we decided to do it our way and launched an Open Day in our offices on Saturday, 24 October to see how things will evolve, together.
Danny can focus on his backside ollie over the loveseat as WE focus on building HIS clothes for skateboarding, like the comfort Chino pants made out of 10,5 oz. slub cotton that he wears in the video.
At 36 we don’t know so many skaters so consistent to put out a videopart as the one that came out today for DC. Check it out!
Sunday May 24 there is party going on with the Lambrothers, starting from 3PM at the Parco Lambro Skatepark (subway green line M2 Udine stop). Come with friends, it doesn’t matter if they ride on skateboard or not, it will be fun.
[…] si festeggia un pezzo di storia del bowlriding italiano: dodici anni di skateboarding in parco Lambro! Il contest inizierà dopo le ore 15.00 ma sarà solo un pretesto per fare festa. La direzione artistica di questa “jungle edition” è affidata a Edo Paris che ha sviluppato una formula ispirata direttamente alla selezione naturale: la Royal Rumble! Quest’anno saremo supportati da una coralità di companies, distributori, associazioni, enti locali ed artisti. La colonna musicale dell’evento sarà come sempre curata da dj Machete. Con la clemenza del bel tempo si prospetta una domenica on fire. Would you like some bananas?
When Washington D.C.’s skater and photographer Anthony Smallwood (@brokensquare on the gram) stopped by the bastard store for a visit sometime ago, he had told us about his ongoing work on the documentary photo book of a pool skating scene located in Washington DC. It was too good for not to spread the word in our circle. Read the rest of this entry »
The new bastard Local Rats t-shirt is a tribute to two of the skaters that left their deepest mark at the bastard bowl: Jacopo Carozzi and Aref Koushesh.
The artwork, pencil designed by the italian father of skateboarding Max Bonassi, in full 80s style, is inspired by one the the best shots ever taken in the bowl by photographer Giuliano Berarducci. The original photo has been published on Thrasher Magazine, as a poster on SHARE Skateboarding and is available as a free gift in the shape of a postcard at the bastard store.
For the first time in Italy, the Organized Chaos art/photo exhibition will feature bit of Bryce Kanights’ organized effort and Chet Childress’ maximized chaos.
The exhibition gathers a selection of Bryce photos that made into skateboarding history and new artworks from Chet, and it will be served with a bastard bowl session with some special guests, including Cody Lockwood, Kevin Kowalski and local ripper Jacopo Carozzi.
Grand opening is on Saturday, January 10th at 6 pm with free tattoos and live silkscreening, thanks to Tattoo Agio and Print Fast Dry Young.
The exhibition will remain installed until Wednesday, January 14th and for the occasion the bastard store will open all its upstairs spaces to visitors with the following:
mornings 10:30 am to 1 pm / afternoons 3:30 pm to 8 pm
A selection of original artworks, t-shirt and photos will be on sale for the whole duration. Read the rest of this entry »
Inaugurated on the main bastard bowl wall last Friday on the occasion of the 20 years of bastard, the Last Supper (Ultima Cena) by Marc McKee can be viewed every day for all the visitors starting Thursday, November 13: at the opening of of our full space for the traditional winter Family Sale upstairs at the bastard store. Leonardo Da Vinci would be proud but we locals are truly honored!
The Last Supper is a collaborative effort between bastard, Marc McKee and Cliché Skateboards. The size of the print is 7.5 x 2.10 meters, depicting the most famous characters of Marc, those that marked a whole generation of skaters (including us) and that contributied to form a completely new approach to the contents of graphic communication in the early 90’s.
Here you can find the bastard snowboards built in Italy, the t-shirt and sweatshirt with the famous Jesus (Gabriel Rodriguez), the Cliché skateboards, the rare book WARNING: The Art of Marc McKee and 16 colors silkscreen art print on heavy paper in ultra-limited series of 40 pieces (half of which are reserved for pro skaters depicted in the graphic) coming from California this week …
