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.

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.
The éS Game of SKATE and the simple rules of the game were created in 2003 by the éS Team. There are imitators, but the éS Game of SKATE is the original. éS rider Mark Frölich talks about his éS Game of Skate.
Make sure you have fun skating with your friends or local crew during one of the events that are taking place in Europe. For dates and locations check the éS Europe Facebook page.
