Our field agents are not fooled by our apparent disinterest. An alert looking competitor can cause suspicion in the mind of the industry. Appearing dumb or disinterested can be the deceiver’s best friend. We learned this from the C.I.A.. What are we up to? Keep your eye on the dead drop.
The collaboration proceeds… The shape is wired.
A collaboration with Rip City Skate and Turnco. Turnco shapes on Cold War wood, with a revolving series of artwork by different artists. The first artist is Turn Co’s own Skip Marcotte. The project is ramping up now and the first boards should be available at Rip City by the end of the month.
Looking through the backlog of some of the shapes from the past 10+ years. Making decisions about what shapes to release in 2014. So far still haven’t seen any royalties from Zero….
We’ve been in business 10 years, and granted we’re not the largest company by far, but still… One can draw one of three conclusions about Jaime Thomas from this:
- Jamie must be a fan of small independent companies like Cold War Skateboards
- Jaimie doesn’t know how to use Google
- Jamie made a calculated decision based on an assumption that we don’t have enough money pursue legal action.
You be the judge. In the meantime. Cold WarSkateboards is hard at work on our new, totally original idea called “Zero.”

I gave Sam a couple stickers a couple weeks ago. I don’t know him very well, but when he showed me this I told him that between his old felony conviction and new facial tat, it looked like he really didn’t care about ever having a job. Without a pause his reply was ” I have a job- skating pools”
I had a mohawk from ’81-’83 but I was never really punk rock. I realize that now.
