If somebody scoped your skating spot via satellite while you were in mid-swagger on one of our new Ace x Shut Skateboards Dazzle Camo Decks we’re not sure if they’d be frankly overwhelmed by your freshness or just not see you at all. Therein lies the mystery of dazzle — patterns used by US and British naval ships to stay off the radar during the war to end wars, and the one that followed shortly after. The camouflaging properties of dazzle are an unsettled science but its flyness has been a matter of public record since naval camofleurs and Cubists began to infiltrate and inspire each other’s respective circles. Our bedazzled deck is the latest from our ongoing partnership with the Lower East Side’s Shut Skateboards, makers of decks and gear for riders on the meanest city streets since ‘86.

Speaking of skateboarding — here’s a wee movie SHUT Skateboards put together about the adventures we had with them and Vans on Go Skateboarding Day 2012, kicking off at Ace Hotel New York.


In honor of Go Skateboarding Day and all its concomitant glory — legal, illegal and otherwise — we’re hosting Skate Related in the Ace New York Gallery space through July 7. The show features prints and designs — by rad folk like Mr. Mike Burrill —  inspired by life on the deck, as well as our Shut x Ace Excelsior skate deck. And yes, that is Justin Beiber.

We love this gorgeous skate video shot with Kilian Martin — the butchest ballerina we’ve ever clapped eyes on — posted here just in time for Go Skateboarding Day, an international call to action and day of wildness in the streets. Join us tomorrow morning at 11am with board in hand for a free cup of French press from Stumptown at Ace Hotel New York before we set out on the streets to defile the principles of capitalism by riding skateboards all day and doing nothing else. In the evening, we’ll be at Tammany Hall for the NY GSD celebration with DJ sets and raffles for cool things. If you want to go RSVP so we know you’re coming.

In celebration, we’re launching our new skate deck with Shut NYC on our online shop, and a winsome t-shirt to boot.

See you on the streets.


Full Bleed did a collage in room 1022 at Ace Hotel New York right in time for Go Skateboarding Day — and right around the same time Shut Skateboards (one of NYC’s purveyors of Full Bleed and an all around rad skate shop) screened Deathbowl to Downtown, shot on Super 8 and narrated by Chloë Sevigny, for our free Sunday night movie series, Liberty Hall Screenings. For posterity, the flyer and some shots from the screening:

This Sunday in Liberty Hall at Ace Hotel New York, SHUT Skateboards NYC presents DEATHBOWL TO DOWNTOWN, an allegory of street skating in NYC with the streets themselves cast in the lead. Joyously shot on Super 8, with a period soundtrack, narrated by Chloë Sevigny and screening just in time for International Go Skateboarding Day when, every year on June 21, skateboarders old and new around the globe celebrate the pure exhilaration, creativity and spirit of one of the most influential activities in the world by blowing off all other obligations to go skateboarding. See at Ace on Sunday, and the streets on Tuesday.
