…Hockem is sitting with an attitude?

Hockem Trick

It’s difficult to create a new sport from scratch, but SALZIGdesign is trying to do just that with Hockem.

The sport is based around the use of a Sporthocker, which is equal parts sports equipment and furniture.


Tricks involve casting, catching, balancing and (of course) sitting on the Sporthocker, with the end of a move signified by the sit. Think of it as a combination of skateboarding, parkour, hacky sack, flatland BMX, and… sitting.

Right now Hockem appears to only be popular in its birthplace of Germany, and perhaps a few other European countries that the Hockem team has traveled too, but given the relentless quest to find the next best thing and get it sponsored by RedBull and added to the X Games, I can only imagine that it’s just a matter of time before this extreme seat makes its way to the US.

…Infectious makes skateboards?

Infectious Skateboards

Infectious has always made kick-ass gadget skins, wall stickers and car decals, but now they’re expanding out into skateboard decks too with their recent purchase of PopDeck.

The link includes some very unique designs from some of the top artists in the industry right now, and they’re priced so that normal people can afford to add a little style to their skateboarding, or even their wall if the art is just too nice to grind away.

Sk8 Wallet

Do you love skateboarding, and wish you could incorporate that love into every part of your style?

Well then, Sk8 Wallets will bring you one step closer to that dream by turning your favorite board into a custom wallet.

Each wallet is individually handcrafted from a new or recycled skateboard deck, and if you send them yours, they’ll fit it to the wallet’s rectangular shape, plane and edge-sand the deck to its thinnest point, and then fuse it to a high quality black nylon wallet for a fashion accessory that’s both sleek and durable, with endless amounts of custom style.
