Buy the Skateboard You Want to Skate - etourist Skateboards

etourist Skateboards
Most skaters like to buy and skate the Pro-Model skateboard of their favorite skater, which is fine, and you should absolutely do that. It supports the skater and allows them to continue getting free stuff and/or paid to do what they love.

It's not often that skaters think about the artist creating the graphics that appear on the decks they buy, unless they particularly like a design, in which case they might give it some attention.

As much as I've enjoyed skating pro-models of my favorite skaters, I also know that skating a deck with a design that I really like motivates me even more to skate often and progress. You just feel good skating a good looking deck with a great board graphic.



BoardPusher.com is a skate company that supports skater creativity, especially artistic creativity. They make it possible for you to design your own deck graphic and purchase it on a pro-quality deck, or you can search the designs of thousands of artists and buy an amazing deck graphic closer to your interests.



If you really enjoy designing skateboard deck graphics, you can even open an online shop with them, and sell your designs to the world. Which is what I have done.

etourist Skateboards is my online skateboard store where you can buy decks featuring my own special brand of art. Each design is available on five different shapes including; 8" Popsicle, Punk Nose Pool, Mini Cruiser, Retro, and Longboard.

I've been skating BoardPusher decks for quite some time and can vouch for the quality of both the decks and the graphics printed on them. A newly printed deck from BoardPusher looks simply amazing. You'll want to set it up and see how it skates as soon as you get it.

Visit etourist Skateboards and check out my designs (and watch my Skateboard video playlist where you can see some of the designs being created as well as me skateboarding). I'd love it if you purchased one of my decks that you really like but, if you don't find something, why not search BoardPusher's marketplace and support the work of another talented skateboard artist. Then again, you may just launch their designer and create your very own deck.

Whatever you do, the deck you buy will be a deck that you'll want to skate because it'll feature art that you really love. You'll skate better and learn faster because your mind will be in a good place about the board you're riding.

Supporting your favorite pro skater is a good thing, but if you plan on buying a second deck, or want to try a different shape, like a longboard, or mini cruiser, how about supporting a skateboard artist like myself or one of the many who sell their designs through BoardPusher.

Bukirk Glamping - Camping in Style, Clare Valley, South Australia

Glamping is for those who want to experience the outdoor lifestyle of camping without foregoing the luxuries of basic motel accommodation.

Bukirk (pronounced 'Buh -kirk') Glamping, located on a rural property, in the Clare Valley, just outside of Clare, South Australia, is by far one of the best accommodation experiences my partner and I have enjoyed to date. Although Bukirk's Facebook page says you could bring a family (I guess additional bedding can be arranged?), everything is more clearly targeted at couples, looking for a romantic getaway where the accommodation is a memorable part of the experience, and not just somewhere to stay.

BEILEXING Autocycle Style ABS Cartoon Building Brick - 378pcs - COLORMIX - Motorcycle kit Product Review

The first time I saw the Beilexing Brick Motorcycle Kit I thought it was nothing short of stunning. I'm not even a fan of motorcycles in general but the detail of this set and how much it captured the spirit of a real world motorcycle really impressed me.

Then I saw the set cost considerably less than a similar sized kit from the Lego Technic range I just couldn't pass it up.

When the kit arrived it did not disappoint. Made from ABS plastic the bricks are fully compatible with, and are of comparable quality to, official Lego bricks. I did notice that the tires and chain links seemed a little less sturdy than their Lego equivalents but beyond that you'd be hard pressed to say the quality of the parts wasn't almost as good.

The model is 35.00 x 10.00 x 6.00 cm / 13.78 x 3.94 x 2.36 inches in size and should be no trouble for intermediate to advanced builders to construct with a clear, and easy to follow instruction manual.

Virtual Reality Addiction Meets Online Shopping and Death!

I'm certainly not the first person to predict the idea of immersive virtual worlds. Movies like Tron (1982) and The Lawnmower Man (1992) are two of the earliest popular culture references to the concept I can think of, off the top of my head. Then of course there is The Matrix (1999) where the VR world idea really hit the mainstream big time.

However, back in early 2005, the practice of online shopping, with real money, for digital products in virtual worlds like Second Life (which was more cutting edge back then) began to meld in my mind with the idea of corporations controlling that experience through marketing and advertising.

The Awkward Amy Schumer Interview That Wasn't Her Fault

Last week comedian Amy Schumer participated in a very awkward interview with Mamamia, Columnist/Journalist/Senior Editor (sorry I'm not sure which job description is most appropriate) Monique Bowley. The interview went so badly that Monique simply had to just own it and write about just how badly it went, and podcast about it as well. Even better the whole interview was captured on video which you can watch below as a precursor to my thoughts on the aftermath.

Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War (2018) *Spoiler Free*

Ten years in the making and Marvel finally releases part one of the Avengers versus Thanos, A.K.A. Avengers: Infinity War.

After seeing all 18 films in the MCU prior to this, and liking most of them, I was pretty confident this movie would not disappoint.

Other than a few minor issues - that are all my personal taste and in no way reflect on the quality of the film - it really delivers. Thanos is indeed the big, bad villain of the MCU that we've been antcipating.
