    Default RIP Skateboarder magazine

    We knew it was happening, but that's the announcement made.

    Obviously a shame because it's weird taking an iPad to the bog, but their digital content is very good.

    I didn't like the format in digital, but grim news all the same
    Is it about a bicycle?

    real shame as some good people worked on that magazine

    should take this oppurtunity for the thread to commemorate their quite simply phenomenal run of quality covers

    Steve Binks 1975-2011. RIP

    Subscribed for years and years, gave most of my issues to kids, encouraging them to subscribe to it too. Not sure I could have done more.
    FUCK Grindmedia who starting sending me fucking surf magazines instead of the Skateboarder on paper I paid for. I was born and bred in the Alps, what the fuck am I gonna do with a surf magazine? Wipe my arse? Should have.

    It was definitely the best mag. Sad day.

    What's happening to their online 411 archives?
    The world needs 411 back, be it in a massive box set (too good to happen) or somewhere online.

    Nah...sorry. Not that one. It's a goofy skater.

    May not have been a skateboarder cover then actually. Ignore me.
