    Thumbs up Holiday Gift/Deal List for Skaters on Silverfish

    Every year, Silverfish runs a list of gear deals and gift ideas for skaters, and it's running again, now. Mostly aimed at longboarders, poolboarders, and hardcore all-around skateboarders, it's got ideas and links ranging from skate tools to $300 racing decks on Holiday Clearance. Here's the full list, and here's a sampling:



    S-One Destro Helmet
    $39.99

    Also Available in Kid Size Helmet.

    You know what we say at Silverfish Longboarding: "...if you aren't skating hard enough to need a lid, put on a lid and skate harder!" Longboarders know it's the kook that skates without a lid, not the kid who's willing to muss up the hairdo in order to show dedication to the gnar. So check out the S-ONE Destro CPSC Helmet. It's designed to fit low on the head, like a traditional soft foam skateboard helmet. This helmet is a breakthrough design, combining the added safety of a CPSC certified helmet with the comfort of a soft foam helmet.


    187 Killer Pads
    Pricing Varies


    The next step, past a lid, is good pads that fit well, take a hit, and don't twist out of the way. 187 Killer Pads has been designing and constructing pads for top skaters for the past decade. Started by a long-time skater in a family owned upholstery shop, 187 Killer Pads has since become the preferred choice of skaters worldwide. Looking forward, 187 Killer Pads will be the company that leads the way to raising industry standards with ever-improved designs and revolutionary systems that make protective gear better.



    Contour GPS HD Camera

    $350

    Skaters are using micro-vid cams to record hot runs around the world. The Contour GPS HD Action video camera features full-on 1080i HD, a laser-guided aiming system around a rotating CCD, 60fps at a real, full 720i (best in the market) and GPS technology that enables you to map out the route of your vids! Along with a wide variety of mounts and an inline, aerodynamic camera position, this smart little camera is changing the way Point of Video is made, allowing you to track your location, speed and altitude multiple times per second, while capturing your adventures in a range of High Definition formats. Silverfish Longboarding has been skating, mtb'ing, and charging the Colorado River rapids with a Contour... this is the one!


    Camera Extender
    $30


    If you're looking to grab some tricky angles, or you want to be in the group picture for once… this is the tool for you. The XShot Camera Extender lengthens your reach by up to 37" (94cm) so you can eliminate any awkward pictures taken at arms length, or get a great perspective when tearing down the street on your skateboard.



    Make You Smile DVD
    $24

Here' we're featuring the Christmas RockitLam ProBuilder Kit: seventeen sheets of 48" Canadian Maple veneers, the TAP system to laminate your own decks, the foam form used in the patented board-building system that's revolutionized longboard customs and one sheet of the new RockitLam skin, in your choice of patterns.

    Concrete Wave
    Subscriptions Vary


    The only magazine that covers longboarding, racing and carving without fear. Vert, freestyle and park skating have their place in the mag, but you won't find a single ad for shoes, girls' jeans or fashion t-shirts. What you will find is event coverage, photos and interviews of skaters, by skaters. Make sure this one hits your bathroom countertop, right next to Skateboarding and Transworld!

    I've actually seen those little cameras used by some of the old school pool skaters at my park, it's pretty neat.

    Maybe 2.5. It's small, smooth and very durable -- high quality stainless steel. I've built board after board with it, and then just tossed it back in my pad bag for use out skating.

    The one limitation is with deep-faced wheels, like you'll find on some racing longboards or certain old-school stuff from the 70's such as an OG Krypto 65...hard to reach the axle nut with this tool. For street/mini wheels this thing is unbeatable.
