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

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
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
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.

    Firing Line: Luan Oliveira
    The first thing that stands out with Luan's skating is the raw power, everything is popped and stomped with authority. This line probably didn't take him long, but we’re not sure too much stuff does.
