Nora has an eye for quality. That’s why she hand-selected skater/architect/holistic fine artist Alexis Sablone to design a new capsule collection for NHS that includes custom Krux Trucks, a sticky sweet slab of Mob Grip, and she even squeezed some of those creative juices on a ripe set of OJs.
Nora lives it up under the Maui sun with her signature Pro K5* Krux Truck featuring an updated hanger with stronger axles, new baseplate designs, a new pivot cup shape and new quicker turning geometry that delivers the “PUR-FECT TURN”. All of that with Nora’s original artwork, the Nora Triangles Truck gonna make you catch the island vibes this summer.
We were so excited when we heard Quell was holding a day-long series of events last February in partnership with Leo Baker’s NYC Skate Project and sponsored by Nike SB. NYC Skate Project was started by Leo to provide programming for gender non-conforming, trans folx, non-binary folx, and CIS women who skate. We were able to send our MOST EXCELLENT east coast correspondent and resident beginner skater Maya Haptas out to the event and she gave us a run-down of what it’s like to attend.
PROS: 1. The event was held on Amy Caron’s birthday. 2. The weather was pristine. 3. Girls & Women from across the globe showed up & ripped. 4. Lots of money was raised for survivors of domestic violence. 5. Many skateboarders won prize money that will contribute to their skateboarding dreams & aspirations.
As skateboarding makes its historical debut in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, we are calling for NBC Sports to hire skateboarding legend Alex White to provide commentary for the women’s broadcasts. As skateboarders, we believe that nobody is more well-equipped and deserving of this important role. Alex is a ripping skater who entered the scene at early age when female skateboarders were scarce. In following years, she proved herself as a leader in making the sport more accessible to girls and women worldwide. She has the talent, insider knowledge and perfect timing to reflect our sport in the greatest, most authentic way possible as it debuts on the world stage.
