Brian Anderson on Coming Out as a Gay Professional Skateboarder


I am so excited to see this headline today!  I am so happy for skateboarding.  This is long overdue in the skateboarding community where I feel there are many areas where skateboarders need to be more accepting of others.  Brian sits down with Reda from Vice Sports to discuss being gay in the professional skateboarding community.  Thank you Brian for taking this huge step and hopefully helping others in the process.  This is a good day for skateboarding.

Richie Jackson's "Death Skateboards" Part


Richie Jackson's brand of skateboarding is always entertaining to watch.  He always thinks outside the box, blending difficult tricks with style, uniqueness and most of all, what skateboarding is all about... FUN!

Krooked Skateboarding: "Labor Day at Drehobl's"


Oh man, oh man, oh man!  I need this in my driveway!  I've dreamt of something like this at my house.  Not too big, not too small.  Something you'd have fun skating everyday.

Ben Jaeger-Thomas - 41 Year Old Skate Every Day


This guy is awesome.  He started skating at 40 years old because he always wanted to!  What an inspiration to do something you've always wanted to do but never got around to....it's never too late dudes!  Go to his YouTube page and check out his videos....he's got quite a few under his belt now so you can watch his progression.  He reminds me of when I got back into skating around 30 years old (I'm 42 now) after being away for 12 years.  I was just constantly at the skatepark trying to learn tricks better than when I was a kid, so kickflip after kickflip, my goal was to make it as easy as an ollie.  I came close and was catching them higher than before but then when I switched decks, for some reason I couldn't land them as much.  This video shows him collapsing after what seems like a million kickflip attempts...I remember having days like that...they can be exhausting.  He's also an actor so that is an interesting part of his videos as well.  I wish I had filmed myself everyday to see my progression.  Unfortunately I only have footage of me as I was starting to learn tricks again, but not when I really was at my peak around 2006.  I'm hoping Ben's videos will inspire me enough to squeeze out some time in my busy life to get back to skating again.  I miss the fun and the stress relief that it is.  Keep at it Ben!

Resurgent Skateboards thanks each and every one of you that has supported us so far.  It is important that we fund a good portion of our goal early during our campaign in order to not get lost amongst the various other campaigns running on Kickstarter.  The first 48 hours of our campaign are the most crucial, and success could land us on the front page of Kickstarter as a top pick.
We will email you the campaign link prior to our campaign going live, so you can be the first to know when it is open.
