Road to SK8PRK

SLUG A SLO Movement Zine

Notice the BACON SKATEBOARDS phone number 805)549.9764 recognize it? Yep Rootamental’s number since 1993 thats because we were the founders: Scott, Joel, Ethan, & Orr back in the early 2000’s

We at Rootamental started working towards a SLO SK8 PRK since back in 2001/’02ish. In the second issue of SLUG …A SLO MOVEMENT ZINE #2 we interview Heidi the director of Skate Park Association-USA to find out “HOW DO WE GET A PERMANENT SKATEPARK IN OUR TOWN” Check out the image below for the complete how to list.  Continue reading

Eric’d

So stoked to know amazing sign painters who are generous to offer their skills and talent to raise money for our San Luis Obispo skateboarding community. The proceeds from this SLO deck will go towards a fun SK8NITE event at our new SLO SK8 PRK.
This guy can make just about any kind of sign. We have a saying “Eric’d” (there is even a sign to the left of his head). The guy is so knowledgable about all materials that when he does something he does it complexly and blows your mind. Check out his pinstripping… hence it got Eric’d.

This is famous Eric Malicoat he grew up in a sign shop and used one shot as his first finger paint. This guy is a wealth of knowledge and he is gracious to share it all.

Rootamental is continuing to contribute to our community and stoke people with SK8 NITE as a positive and healthy event. To get SK8 NITE rolling I asked some artists friends to hand paint an original “San Luis Obispo” deck to sell and raise funds to make SK8 NITE even more Rad by: getting people rollin, stickers, tees, music/movies and snacks maybe even bribe some pros to come skate with us. Contribute to those that support you and your community. Ultimately, we would love for our community to simply come out and have FUN skateboarding with us. 2015-02-17 21.01.36 Continue reading

2015-02-17 20.27.50BIG Thanks to SUNDAY! aka Ty Hjortland if you skate on the central coast you’ve seen him. But you may not of known that the guy can throw down with a brush and paint too. Check out his “San Luis Obispo” deck. Let us know what you think? If enough people like it with his permission we will probably make some sticker with the graphic.   Continue reading

About 30 years ago we started this concept skate night. Basically, we were hanging out and had to do something with the excess of energy young people have. At night there are a fraction of the cars on the road as the day so this opens up a whole new world of fun and physical expression thanks to the skateboard. Continue reading
