ALIS -  A BIGGER PURPOSE 🌍

If you have never been to “Freetown Christiania” in Denmark’s capital Copenhagen it is a must visit.

Christiania is best known as Denmark’s independent, free loving commune where cannabis is openly sold and consumed, where drum circles and open-air jam sessions can always be found, and where people who’ve had enough of mainstream society can find a place to exist.

ALVA - THE GOAT 🐐

Tony Alva is considered an originator of vertical skating and is credited as one of the first skateboarders to successfully pull a Frontside Air.

That moment, is considered by many to be the birth of modern skateboarding:

In 1977, at the age of 19, Alva shunned the major skate companies to form his own company, entitled Alva Skates.

It was the first company run and owned by a skateboarder, as well as being one of the first to use layered Canadian maple plywood in skateboard decks.

They continue to operate out of California today offering a wider range of deck accessories, clothing and apparel.
