Ed Templeton personally drew the Artwork for Peter’s Welcome Clip! I think that’s rad!
Ronnie Creager is one of the best and most talented skateboarders that skateboarding brought up.
His flawless style and the effortlessness how he pulls the most technical tricks put him, 2 decades ago not only on my radar.
After many years with Blind skateboards, Ronnie decided to split with his deck sponsor and create his own deck brand:
High School Dropout Skateboards.
I am stocked to have the chance to introduce and represent High School Dropout Switzerland.

Ask at your local skateshop for High School Dropout decks, T-Shirts, stickers…!

Here’s Fabio Martin’s Welcome Clip for Santa Cruz Skateboards.
Last October part of the illumate Team went on a journey to south east asia to escape the cold weather in Switzerland. For 1 week, Simon Stricker, Jonny Giger, Fabio Martin and Soerfi were ripping new spots, chilling at the pool and eating the most delicious foods. Check the short travel report. Enjoy.
While filming for his part, Simon Stricker (Flip, Bones Wheels, Bones Bearings, Silver Trucks, Mob Grip, Shorty’s Hardware) encountered an angry senior citizen who didn’t want Simon to ride away clean after his Nollie Heelflip down the doubleset.
A Slalom run-up, not really a problem for Simon. Mission accomplished!
In the history of skateboarding there are a lot of influential people from the early days. Over the last couple of years, many of these guys got their fair share of coverage and their achievements got honored.
But there are also a few people in the background who changed skateboarding off the board, more than many of the famous pioneer skateboarders changed skateboarding on their boards.
George Powell is one of these guys in the background. As an engineer with the aspiration to perfection, he changed skateboarding. Bones Bearings, Bones Wheels, Bones Hardcore Bushings, Powell Peralta Skateboards, These Wheels. Most People relate these Brands with the best quality on the market. To make the best is George’s standard! Thanks for all the great product!
Simon Stricker (Flip, Bones Wheels, Bones Bearings, Silver Trucks, Mob Grip, Shorty’s Hardware) and Pascal Duschletta went on a Red Bull trip to Japan to film a very nice short clip in the Mega City of Tokyo.
Unfortunately they didn’t had the chance to skate a lot because of rain and the securities which busted them at every single spot they tried to skate.
