Longboarding For Peace

Longboarding for Peace

The Times of Israel posted a rad article about Longboarding for Peace (LB4P), the initiative that Concrete Wave publisher, Michael Brooke started in 2012 to help give kids who were underprivileged or in gangs a fun reason to stay out of trouble. We partnered with Michael and LB4P on our "Girl Is Not A 4 Letter Word" board we have coming out with Cindy Whitehead during Vans Warped Tour this year.

Dusters at the IASC Skateboarding Hall of Fame

Last week, the IASC summit and Skateboarding Hall of Fame went down in Anaheim, California and Dusters Creative Director Nano Nobrega along with old school pro skater Cindy Whitehead and Concrete Wave publisher and Longboarding for Peace founder, Michael Brooke were there to hear this years guest speakers talk about the latest in industry news, progressions the sport has made and issues it has yet to overcome. We were truly in the presence of skateboard legends including Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen and skate photographer Mörizen "Mofo" Föche who were all stoked on Cindy's "Girl Is Not A 4 Letter Word" collaboration board we have launching during the Vans Warped Tour to support Longboarding For Peace and GRO (Girls Riders Organization).
