Let me begin by telling you a little bit about my Uncle Mark. He is a pretty cool dude, who is married to a pretty legit lady, and they have two beautiful children, Trent and Shanna!! Mark and his family currently live in Austin, Texas and they just visited us for two weeks. It was lovely. Every time they come, I realize just how much I miss them. Anyhow, Mark started a skateboard company in 2010, and I thought it would be cool to share his products with y’all. If you skate, you need to check out his website. If you don’t skate, you need to check out his website. If you have friends that skate, you need to tell them to check out his website. Better yet, don’t just check it out....BUY A SKATEBOARD. Did you get my drift here? I’m tellin ya..........go look at his stuff!
Here are some facts:
MARK Skateboards is located in Austin, Texas, but he can ship your deck wherever you want.
MARK Skateboards was started after Mark’s son, Trent became interested in skating. The reason this fact is so unique to me is because Mark has always loved skating, but Trent was actually the inspiration behind this company! Let me tell you, Mark and Leslie have the two most beautiful kids on the planet!
MARK Skateboards are hand silk-screened in the United States, on the finest laminated North American maple harvested from a sustainable forest. Personally, I think it’s pretty cool that these skateboards aren’t mass produced in another country...but that’s a whole different story.
MARK Skateboards is a 1% for the Planet business. What does this mean? They donate 1% of all profits to environmental causes!! LOVE that!
My favorite statement from the Philosophy section of the MARK Skateboards website is “Of course, in the context of MARK Skateboards, the only marks we really care about are the marks that are going to get scraped all over the bottoms of our decks. Because those marks will mean that someone is having a good time somewhere, getting out and living a little, and leaving marks of their own. We'd like you to leave a mark. Maybe show the path that got you from Point A to Point B, however you define it. And we'd really like it if you shared your stories, and your marks, with us and others. Now stop reading this and go earn a scar.”
Basically, I leave you with this. Scoot your bootie on over to his website, and check out his decks. My favorite ones would have to be Naked and Loud Deaf, but tell me what your favorite is! I am curious!!
HERE’S THE BEST PART! If you type in “bnfunky” when you get to your shopping cart, you will get 25% off of your products! I would say that’s a SWEET DEAL! Now, get off my blog and go show my uncle some love!!!!!
