Why would we make a Western Series?

While our most recent Western Series may seem like just another group of pictures on skateboards, they are more than that. The idea was simply to convey a certain time period with sense of adventure. The idea of a lawless land where cowboys fought indians has been touched upon countless times. There is so much more to it than that. Take for example one of the main inspirations for our series Bodie California. No cowboys here. Just miners looking to make a quick buck while enduring winters of 20 feet of snow and hundred mile an hour winds in paper thin shacks. These people where hard as nails. There was everything you could imagine from the obvious of gun fights, saloons, whore houses and ballrooms. Bodie even had its own china town. What does all this have to do with skateboarding? I’d like to think that skateboarding has some of the same sense of adventure and willingness to struggle as the people who risked it all to live in towns like Bodie.


I do not own the rights to the photos of Bodie.

Recently a costumer bought a shirt from are online store and was charged $11 in shipping bringing his total to$38 for one shirt.  Thats way to much for one shirt if you ask me so I refunded his shipping cost and removed shipping from everything in our online store within the lower 48 states.

The way she goes…

Sad news in the skateboard world last week with the death of Alien Workshop.  Alien was a big inspiration to us over here at Inspectrum.  I’ll  admit that the name Inspectrum was partially inspired by my love of this graphic when I was first started skateboarding.


Also these two montages where pretty heavily influenced by there work in the video department, although not near their level.

  Here is a good article about what could have caused their downfall.  Lastly here is an excellent best of montage by the one and only Manolo tapes.

  Enough reminiscing.  Our new Western Series finally came in.  Featuring more amazing artwork by Nicky Gaston and guaranteed not to be a scooter, how could you pass these up?



That means we’re aloud to have one, right?

More skateboarding and stuff….

We’ll Matts part is finally out.



I also printed our first run of these last week.  Should have them up in the online store by the end of the week.  Super hyped on this one! 

A buddy of mine built some sick DIY up in the mountains.  It’s always good to see people taking matters into their own hands.



Just found out via the slap forums that we have shitty art direction.  Thanks for the head up dudes!

Short Film about Inspectrum…

Watch me ramble on about skateboarding and how Inspectrum skateboard co came to exist in this short film.


In a side note, 23 news did an article about the new planz park and decided to bootleg a bunch of Inspectrum footy with out permission.  They also apparently don’t allow embeded videos so you’ll have to follow the link.

Last but not least, there will be a Matt part this week.

Still no Matt part but….

Well we lied.  The Matt Guerrero intro part still isn’t done.  However we do have a few things for  your view pleasure this week.  Starting with this super rad remix of some old bakersfield legends from around 1996-1998 including a very young Devine Calloway.  I’m so glad this footage rose to the surface after all these years.  Pat did a great job putting it together in a way that makes for an enjoyable watch.

Here’s a trailer for a small documentary on myself and Inspectrum.  I believe it will go live next Monday.

Just added our Curb Club shirt to our online store.  It’s rumored to improve your curb skating by 3%.

In spot news it looks like the I-5 ditch is skateble again.

Some pictures and captions and stuff…

We said we would have Matt’s part done but as things often go we had technical difficulties.  We are hoping to have it finished by this friday.  It will be worth the wait.  Until then enjoy this back tail gif.


Drove by the Planz plaza today.  It’s looking really good.  Can’t wait for it to be finished.  Only one bad photo for now.



More classic shots of Mcdonalds banks seem to keep trickling in.  Loving this one of Karma.  march31-2
