Alienworkshop a cemented in legendary skateboard company known for it’s filmstrip style moniker and iconic Alienatic head graphic has been a thriving underground culture and culture for skateboarding since the 90’s.
The brand rolled through times of ownership from Burton snowboards vermont based company, to skater/personality Rob Dyrdek to newly pacific vector holdings in 2013. In 2012 the team abruptly dismantled and 2014 came to an official closure. ‘The workshop’ seemed dead beyond belief and at an insurmountable point before minorly surfacing in 2015 to slowly reveal its amateur team. From their meltdown with Dyrdek the brand is still run from Ohio as it was originally in Miamisburg. The time of the superteam with Dill, Dylan, Ave, Crockett, Taylor, Berra, Dyrdek, Taylor, Johnson may be majorly over; with smaller distribution windows can brands of creative natures be stacked with pro’s and still offer audience’s an exceptional product experience? We’ll have to see
With a fresh team bringing solid and classic street skating it’s easy to forget the old team(although ridiculously incredibly stacked) I see Aws putting street skating and skate life on the forefront like no other and it’s admirable while awe-inspiring cutting-edge with that same tenacity and creativity that launched it full on in the first place.
