Foundation What the F?!?!

Hey F posse. We have these two new MSRP $40 dollar decks in stock now. Buy local and demand from your local shop today. If they don't or won't represent let us know and we'll chase them down. Make your own circle F mark and take a picture of it and send it in. F = space travel and skateboarding chaos.

Foundation Pig Skate Tool Rules the Earth!

Seriously, I go into shops and they have these crappy ass tools and the Pig tool is MIA. WTF?!?! Maybe people just do not even know it exists. It's a great compact skateboard tool. What sets itself apart is the self aligning axle threader on such a compact tool. There is one other, the AWS tool, that has the axle threader but it is massive and will not fit in your pocket. What else? 3/8, 1/2 and 9/16th sockets. 1/8 and 7/32 allen head and a phillips heads. Demand from you local shop. If they refuse then go here and get it.

Foundation Swank Poweredge Cover April 1989

Oh shit. I'm sorry. Frank Atwater recently contacted me wanting to score some Pig Wheels from us. How could I saw no. It's Frank Atwater. Today I got this copy of Poweredge Magazine from Frank. Myself on the cover slapping a rock April 1989. Hmm. Twenty one fricking years ago. That's right when I started Foundation Super Co. WTF!?!

Sorry I'm lame for posting myself on here. Thanks Frank. I'm siked!

Foundation REBATE! Master of Diaster needs your help!


You can thank Duane Peters for skating the way you do. You can thank Duane Peters for defining skateboarding in the 1980s, and setting it on its current course. He took the elegant freestyle of the 1970s and shoved it through a meat grinder. He took skateboarding "Off The Wall" and went balls-to-the-wall. He put the snarl in gnarl, the punk in rock, the fuck in you. Duane Peters isn't a relic--he didn't invent the Indy Air and disappear, retire, or fade away. Pushing 50, DP has been charging as hard as ever, skating, touring, slamming, and getting right back up to do it again. But recently the Master Of Disaster had a bad knee injury turn worse. Gangrene. The doctors prepared to amputate his leg, but Duane pleaded to save it. He knew that no leg would mean no skating. And without skating, he'd descend into old habits that would pretty quickly kill him. He's been cleaning himself up, sharing the rough road with thousands of Twitter followers (@DuanePeters), and keeping his head straight to be able to raise his son, Clash. But skateboarding is the compass that makes that effort possible. No leg, quite simply, means no skating. And that would mean the end of the Master Of Disaster.

Saving his leg means saving himself. "Skate or Die" has never been more true than it is for Duane, right now. But to save his leg, Duane's been undergoing intense treatment and therapy. It's rigorous, painful, and very expensive. He's been selling everything he owns on eBay, and he's got thousands of dollars in medical bills stacked up against him. Duane needs our help (not just you or me, but us). He would never ask, so we are asking. The dozens of members of this coalition we call Rebate. It's about skaters helping skaters. It's about seeing a brother like DP backed against the wall and doing something about it. Whatever you can. If we all lend a hand, two things will happen: we will collectively raise some money to help Duane save his life, and in our efforts Duane will realize what he's given us all. Over the decades he's remained a champion for skateboarding. A champion of what skateboarding means. Do your part. Do what you can. Donate money. Donate a valuable collectible item for auction. Whatever you can. But DO something. Help the master Of Disaster get through this, and get back on his board where he belongs. He deserves this. And you deserve this opportunity.

Send checks (payable to Duane Peters) and any items product/Art/Pictures (signed if possible)  for auction  by Feb 18th 2011 to:

Foundation Skateboarding Hall of Fame 2010

We went to the Skateboarding Hall of Fame on Saturday night at The Cooper Building LA CA. Inductees are Patty McGee, Torger Johnson, Stacy Peralta, Steve Caballero, Eric Koston and Bob Burnquist.  Special awards to Craig Stecyk and Larry Stevenson. We drank, we ate, we laughed, I fanned out. It was so lame it was great.  Not one teamrider or employee of Tum Yeto came. Luckily my brother, his babe and his friends were hyped to be there. Rasises cash for non profit charities.

Watson Laminates made the one of a kind award decks for each inductee. I set them up using Sure Grip trucks and wheels. I ate a fake salami sanwich with pepper jack cheese and mustard.
