Keeping The Fun In Dysfunctional

Welcome to our revamped website. We've added a bunch of new features and hopefully made everything at least 25-percent more fun to dork around with. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Videos Get Functions And A Facelift

VIDEOSdetail
All of our Videos still come in both Flash and QuickTime versions, but we also now have keyboard shortcuts, with new functions like pause, frame forward, and slow motion. Social icons to the right allow you to get your Thrasher updates however you prefer.

 

Every Skatepark And Skateshop On One Freaking Map

SK8parks-POTRERO Our Skatepark Finder got a major upgrade, with the addition of interactive Google Maps and the ability to search for both skateparks and skateshops nearby. We've added a ton of parks to the list, but if you know of one we missed, help us out and add a skatepark.


Freedom Of Speech, Just Watch What You Say
FORUM_login
The Forum (formerly known as the Message Boards) may be 100 times easier to read and navigate, but it's still as wild as ever in there so watch that you don't kook yourself and end up in Solitary Confinement. You can also now log in and post comments from almost every page of the site. All you need to do is register a username and you're ready to start posting.

 

A Place For Everything And Everything All In One Place
COVERSnatas
Probably one of our most-popular features is the Covers Index. Every single cover of every single mag on one page, and for 1981 through 1987 or so we've scanned every single page and posted 'em up for you to flip through. Click any cover to see what's inside, click any spread image to enlarge. Navigate to it from the MAGAZINE drop down menu at the top right and enjoy your trip down memory gap lane.

So yeah....check it out, click on things, find bugs, tell us how much you hate it, or just have fun poking around.

    Rough Cut: Stephen Lawyer's "Brain Gone." Part
    It’s hard to watch Stephen’s footy straight through without stopping, rewinding and trying to figure out how the hell he does some of these tricks. Camo game strong, board control on lock, the Lawyer is in the building.
  • Jamie Foy "The People's Champ" Article

    Jamie Foy "The People's Champ" Article
    Jamie Foy's friends and family weigh in on what makes the 2017 SOTY so F'n good. When Muska calls you "the handrail god," you're doing everything right.

    There’s a lot of crazy skateboarding broadcasting throughout the universe every day, but we guarantee Tiago has a few tricks up his sleeve you’ve never seen before.
  • Firing Line: Tom Schaar

    Firing Line: Tom Schaar
    Mammoth Lakes is the moon and Tom Schaar is an astronaut sent to crush every crater before returning to Earth in this line for Lifeproof. Spinning is easier in space, apparently.
  • Journey to the Edge: Ty Evans Explores The Flat Earth

    Journey to the Edge: Ty Evans Explores The Flat Earth
    Love it or leave it, Ty Evans is always pushing the boundaries of skate videography to their breaking point. Sieben talks with Ty about The Flat Earth, VX1000s and dragon hunting. Embrace the future.

    Ty Evans has made some serious videos in his career, but nothing gets him pumped up quite like Atiba’s infamous part in Chomp On This.
  • Preston Harper's "Comb" Part

    Preston Harper's "Comb" Part

  • Young Emericans B-Sides: Victor Aceves

    Young Emericans B-Sides: Victor Aceves
    Along with Kader and Zach, Victor is part of the Emerican trio that has us feeling really good about the future of boarding. Not only comfortable on the hefty terrain, he looks proper doing it. The back Smith ender is so insanely psychotic.
  • Larbfest 4 Video

    Larbfest 4 Video
    Warning! Aggressive, messy and chaotic! Larbfest celebrates the bands that provide the soundtrack to our skateboarding. Having a session before the gig is a standard ritual, but this time we turned it into a little mission from Minneapolis to Milwaukee, harvesting parks and spots in between gigs. Turn it up and check it out! —Hitz
