Thursday 11th August saw the opening of Mark Ward’s As Seen On TV art show at Kemistry Gallery in London, and the official launch of Mark’s collaboration collection with éS. Big thanks to everyone who came down, after the recent riots it was good to see such a strong turnout. Mark’s work received an incredible reception with several works being sold on the night.

Ward jacket. Twill herrington jacket with poplin lining and cotton twill sleeves.
The La Brea Mark Ward is a stylish cupsole with a suede and herringbone upper.
Check out your local (online) skateshop to get these products.
Wear testing equipment and methodology for skateboarding footwear has dramatically advanced in the last decade. Millions of dollars and man hours are spent on super-computers, state-of-the-art cameras and high-tech machinery to research, develop and improve skate-specific needs like durability, grip, comfort, protection and more.
For Bobby Worrest, however, this isn’t enough. He wanted to ensure that the shoes bearing his name were ones he thoroughly tested himself, the old fashioned way.
So he skated the new Edgar model for nine months—a stitch in time we like to refer to as “Man vs. Shoe,” and a testament to who is more durable.
The teaser is also up on our Vimeo channel.
Our condolences go out to the entire Sk8mafia family and friends for the loss of their friend Tommy Cantrell.
When Sk8mafia launched, Tommy took the reigns as its online editor, video editor, and all around web guru. This Saturday, August 13th, there will be a celebration of his life at Poway Lake. Check the Transworld Skateboarding site for the flyer.
