…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Nike Ill-Mobile?

Nike Ill-Mobile

If you want to go anywhere and do anything, then you need a…Nike Ill-Mobile?

The as yet nameless machine is “a souped-up, tricked out, action sports shred-mobile: part amphib, part 1970’s camper, and 100% rock and roll”.

The 8-wheeled ill-mobile can cross deserts, climb mountains, and search out any secret spot on the planet. Once there, it deploys rack mounted bikes, surfboards, wakeboards, and skateboards for any session that you can throw at it.

Can’t find a place to board?

No problem.

Grind rails line the sides, and a quarter pipe folds down from the rear for an impromptu session.

Need to chill for a bit?

Got you covered there too. The ill-mobile has an on deck bbq, a deluxe camper shell, a basement couch front seat, and a stereo to piss the neighbors off with if you ever have any.

Ride on.

…Etnies is taking on the SEED Project?

Etnies SEED Project

The etnies SEED Project “is a unique collection of apparel and footwear made of sustainable and recycled materials that reflect etines’ responsibility to give back to the planet. With the purchase of these products, one percent of the proceeds will be donated to benefit environmental organizations that etnies believes will plant the seeds for the future of action sports, humanity and our planet.”

The Spring ’08 collection was done in collaboration with San Diego-based artists Gary Benzel, and includes shoes, sandals, shirts, hats, socks, and hoodies for both men and women.

Looking good while saving the planet?

Count me in.

…The Beginning looks great?

Combine Tony Hawk’s and Shaun White’s forces, and the world might not be ready for the result.

The new Birdhouse video, called “The Beginning”, features the dynamic duo doing their thing on a super-ramp that they built out in the desert, and some of the scenes are truly breathtaking:

Other appearances in the video include Matt Ball, Steve Nesser, Brian Sumner, Willy Santos, Jeremy Klein, Jean Postec, Justin “Figgy” Figueroa, David Loy, Sean Eaton, Shaun Gregoire, Randy Ploesser, Derek Burdette, Riley Hawk and Nate Lacoste.

[Note: You may recognize this video from the Website Wednesday: Shred or Die post. This one is the extended version however, and features a lot more Hawk and White action.]

…It’s Website Wednesday: Shred Or Die?

Shred Or Die

What Will Ferrell did for Funny Or Die, Tony Hawk is hoping to do for Shred Or Die.

As an action sports video site, SOD hopes to mix action sports and celebrity culture, including interviews with Lance Armstrong, Shaun White, Christian Slater, and Ryan Sheckler.

Users watch the user generate clips, and then vote that they should either “Shred” or “Die”, similar to Digg and Burry.

Are you ready?

…It’s Website Wednesday: Rip TV?

Rip TV

Rip TV is “an interactive broadband action sports TV network with an emphasis on Mountain Biking, Snowboarding, Skateboarding, Skiing, BMX, Surfing, MotoX, and more”.

With “exclusive programming, live-event coverage, and entertaining weekly shows”, as well as crazy crashes, treacherous tricks, cool contests, and gnarly news, it’s designed to fill all of your extreme sports needs in one place (and let you know about all of the sports that can kill you).

If that’s not good enough, then just keep in mind that Rip TV is still in Beta, so you can have that ‘there before the crowds’ feeling for a little wile longer.
