Black Friday Sale

A couple of my friends are leaving their respective Thanksgiving celebrations early to camp out at Best Buy for some ultra cheap TV. They are spending their turkey day not with family…but in a parking lot. Why? To save money.

We are a little more sane here at Ambush. We are having a nice little Black Friday Sale where you can save a bunch of money. But…we won’t make you stand in line for hours and get trampled by the big box barbarians. This sale is for everyone and it lasts all day.

$100 off any 2012 complete snowboard (board, boot, and binding)

$20 off any complete skateboard

Buy one get one 50% off on all clothing (of equal or lesser value)

And, for those of you who like to get up early, take an extra 10% off from 7 am – 10 am. Read More >

How Old Are Your Heroes?

 

You are going to die! That’s a fact. It happens to all of us. We get older, lose a step or two, and then fade into oblivion. Hopefully, while you were able-bodied, you made an impact on skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing or wakeboarding. These folks below definitely did (and continue to this day). So, next time you think you are old and washed up, think of this: These guys are still killing it…

Sponsored

Being sponsored has become the holy grail of action sports. Some kids try their whole lives to get sponsored. Some succeed…some don’t. What if you could suddenly wave a magic wand get sponsored right now? Which company would you want to be sponsored by? What is your dream brand that you are dying to rep? Well…we asked the Ambush guys that same question.

 

Brian: Vans – “‘Cause you don’t have to buy clothing and shoes and s#!t. They got sweet flannels and make everything from skate shoes to snowboard boots.”

 

Brian’s favorite Vans product: Old Skool ’92 Pro (Ray Barbee/Forest Green)


Jake: Matix – “I like their jeans and they have a good team.” Read More >

Rise and Shine

Never mind Nyjah Huston, here’s Gary Sargent. Local BroFriend Greg has a board company called DEADSNAKE, and it is sick. Ambush team riders Gary, Rhett, and J.J. are repping Greg’s wood and tearing up spots with it. Check this link to their “Scumbag Beach” promo and get your mind blown. VIDEO

After you are done watching that, go add DeadSnake on Facebook to see regularly posted videos of skateboarding goodness. These guys do it right, so next time you’re in the shop pick up a DeadSnake and support your local lurker.

Start Your Snowboard Season with a FREE Capita Snowboard

An historic October snow storm just clobbered the Northeast dropping more than a foot of snow on most towns. I’m sure the resorts up there are rushing to be the first to open their lifts for snowboarders to take advantage of some early season riding. We down here at Ambush are celebrating the beginning of snowboard season our own way…by giving away a FREE Capita snowboard.

Kick off the snowboard season with us on Friday, 11-11-11 at 9:00 pm. We will be showing Capita’s latest video Defenders of Awesome and everyone in attendance will automatically be entered to win a Capita snowboard of their choice.

Travis Glover

Everyone should turn their Dec. issue of The Skateboard Mag to p.87. You will find a banging photo of the one and only, Travis Glover. I have been shredding with this fool for years and it is about time his skating is seen outside the Atlanta area. Zoo York skateboards is showing him love and even have some lengthy blogs about their tour around ATL with Travis just last week. If you have never seen Travis skate, you shouldn’t hesitate to go watch After Glow and get your mind blown.

Renovation Update

 

 

Brian pulled an all-nighter on Friday, Nick stayed until 1:00 am last night, and I am here now making sure our concrete guys kick ass. It’s starting to look epic in here. The floors look like you are walking on water.
