We are happy to present the result of this limited collaboration between bastard and ADE Shoes, based first and foremost on personal friendship, shared values and the technical needs of the founders of the respective brands. This co-op has its roots in the mid-80s when Max Bonassi (bastard) and Fabio Di Molfetta (ADE) were travelling around Europe in search of new spots to skate and started building ramps to share with friends respectively in the north and south of the italian peninsula. Often they were carrying the silver duck tape to plug the holes in their shoes and make them last a bit longer. Read the rest of this entry »
The new episode of the bastard Bali Collection for the summer of 2016. A capsule collection made of a few carefully selected pieces, designed by our Balinese designer with local materials and completely MADE IN BALI.
No time for basa basi.
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!
We are proud to introduce you to the first ever bastard Bali Collection! Forget about surfing, the wind blowing your hair and the beautiful seaside.
The Balinese people we played with, love to spend time organizing bootleg races with homemade dragsters on the infamous 200 mt. of the dusty roads around Kuta, and they definitely don’t waste their time with basa-basi (a.k.a. introductory talks). They We’re more “straight to the point” type of dudes, and when we hang out at night, we like to dress nicely.
If you ever had the chance of walking around in the island, then you know that in Bali, there are a lot of dogs wandering around, and sometimes they jump out of an alley or a bush… don’t ever look in their eyes! They may be cute and endearing, but if you’re in their territory they’ll read your staring as confrontation, and bite you. Watch out! Most of them have rabies.
Balinese design, local materials and Proudly MADE IN BALI by Those Lazy Italians.
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.
