This coming June, we're holding an exhibition featuring over 30 artists from 12 countries spread over 5 continents. Each artist has submitted a custom design that we'll be printing onto a limited edition of decks. We'll have almost 40 different designs. All decks are made in the USA with 7ply hard rock maple. These will look killer on the wall as art, or fully skate-able if you can stand tearing these things up.

The bigger point to all this is that we're using SHOVE IT! to help raise some cash and awareness for a park we're trying to build here in Des Moines. Yeah, we skate in Iowa, but it's hard to grind a cornstalk, or pig for that matter. The park has been designed by California Skateparks and will feature 65,000 sq. ft. of features, making it the largest outdoor park in the country that's totally free to skate.

The exhibition, which opens June 7, 2013 will cost us some cash. So we're holding a Kickstarter to try and raise that money. We've got all of these sweet decks up for pledge rewards and a few other things as well. So please check it out, pledge if you can, and share this with all your friends. And if you're wondering why in the hell anyone would want to support a park in Des Moines, think of it this way, our world gets that much better every time a new park gets built. Thanks for checking this out.

We just got support from Black Box with a whole bunch of goods from Zero, Mystery, and Fallen. It was like Christmas, opening that package. Our Kickstarter { http://bit.ly/SHOVE-IT } is going to have the info on how to get it. Huge thanks to those cats for listening, supporting, and then delivering.

Black Box, you rule!

More decks have been released. We've now got 38 decks to choose from. A $75 pledge gets you the deck of your choice, and helps build a skatepark in one click of the mouse. We have 16 days to reach our goal and need your help. So please check out our Kickstarter campaign, share the link with your friends, and if you can spare a little coin, we'd definitely appreciate it.
