The core of skateboarding is about doing things for you and not giving a damn what others do or think. This rebellious nature resonated with a lot of skateboarders early on, so Steve Rocco decided to make a statement by starting Blind Skateboards® with Mark Gonzalez. The name “Blind” was a jab at Gonz’s former sponsor, Vision. OG Blind artist, Marc Mckee, recalls, “When Blind and World first started, there were no limitations on what we could or couldn’t do.”
The more Blind® called people and companies out, the more popular it became. The no rules, DIY mentality of Blind was a huge influence in how 686® started. To commemorate this, 686® x Blind® is introducing a capsule collection that showcases the rawness and humor of what it was like back in the day. Blind® looked at corporate America and the “Big 3” skate brands (Powell, Vision, Santa Cruz) as made up of everything that skateboarding shouldn’t be. This was best communicated through their graphics, ads and having legends like Gonz, Jason Lee and Rudy Johnson charging forward. Blind® reflected the raw nature and unwritten rules of being free to do whatever you wanted.

Mt Baker opened up in Washington state over the Turkey day holiday Wednesday to be exact and by the end of the weekend was crowned deepest base in North America. The storm came and left a good base not the most ever but a solid start to the season up at Mt Baker. Good to see old friends and see the people pouring into the lift lines.
